Kmuse here! Finally back and ready to get my Kpop on. While I was trying to figure out what I should focus on, it came to me that I haven’t talked about the latest songs/performances that have shown up in the last little while. So I am going to take a break from looking at the past and share which new songs I think you need to check out.Continue reading
I don’t really keep a bias list or anything like that, but I’ve noticed lately that if I don’t know what to listen to, I turn to either FTIsland or Lee Hong Gi’s solo work. I guess that means I *do* have a bias…? I do love listening to Hong Gi’s powerful, slightly raspy voice a whole lot. Anyway, here are the top 5 Lee Hong Gi songs on my playlist!
I have to admit there are a LOT of kpop songs that evoke a certain feeling in me of stretching out to reach someone or something — and they aren’t all from OSTs (just most of them). Come chat Kpop Songs of Longing with me!
I love a good anthem, a song that is triumphant and empowering and makes me want to stand up and shout, “Yes! I will do the thing!” Admittedly, sometimes I don’t know what the thing is, but these songs always invigorate me and make me want to do something with my life. So clench those fists and get ready to punch the air as you listen to my top five kpop anthems!
It’s almost Halloween! And while this holiday is not really celebrated in Korea the way it here is in the US, I thought it would be the perfect time to bring out those music videos that cover the more spooky/odd aspects of life. So come join me and celebrate the holiday Kpop style. Continue reading
Looking for something to help alleviate my post concert depression after seeing BTS two times this tour, I splurged on Day6 Tickets. The only problem? I am the newbiest of newbies when it comes to Day6. I know “Shoot Me” and I think I can pick out Jae, but I can’t properly fangirl without some help from an expert. So, I turned to @Dramadebussie, also known as half of the podcasting duo Drama Kandy. She graciously agreed to join me for this interview/tutorial. So, please join me as I interrogate, I mean “interview,” Drama Debussie.
Kpop music videos are always colorful and brilliantly executed and they definitely embrace an element of the weird more often than not. Today’s selection, however, pushed me beyond the initial “What did I just watch?” reaction, though. Before you start thinking that the shiny newness has not worn off this Maknae, let me tell you that there were several videos that did not make the cut for today’s post, including SHINee’s “Everybody” and “Ring Ding Dong.” In my wanderings down the kpop rabbit hole, I have found some videos that would make even David Bowie raise his eyebrows. Without further ado, I present to you Five Over-the-Top Kpop MVs!
I was randomly looking through my playlists for this week’s topic and came across Aaron Yan’s That’s Not Me MV. The song was used in his drama Fall In Love With Me, which I ended up hating, but the song found a spot on my playlist. So this week we are going to share random OST (official soundtrack) songs that we love. Needless to say, this list will be random in content since I am adding both Chinese & Korean dramas.

I have to start this post with a disclaimer: I know nothing about the technicalities that go into making a good rap. All I know is what sounds good to my ears, and what makes me punch the air when I hear a particularly good solo. So, in no particular order, here are my five favorite kpop songs with EXCELLENT raps.
I’m seeing Hyukoh in concert this week! And since I am sure a ton of you are asking yourself who is Hyukoh? I thought I would make them the focus of this week’s 5 Kpop MVs. So get sit back, relax, and find out why this is a band you should be listening to. Continue reading
