Knowledge Note: In the past, the b-side songs were the songs that weren’t the title song, the main attraction, but that still made it on to the album anyway. Sometimes it was just to fill up space, sometimes it’s because the artist felt like the song was strong enough to be released to the public, but the entertainment company didn’t agree. B-sides are a compromise.
Sometimes I wonder what musicians do when they’re not feeling pressured to create the perfect song, which is why I’m fascinated by the b-sides on most albums.
I love Stray Kids and their edgy-yet-playful sound, so I really loved hearing the b-sides on their latest album Cle 2: Yellow Wood. Come see if you like them as much as I do!
Can I just say that Kdrama Jen knows me all too well? She suggested that maybe I should look into pop from other countries, like Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam, and I immediately ADORED the idea. Come see what Thai pop songs resonated with me!
Roll your windows down, grab your sunglasses, and get ready to blast the 2019 summer bops with The Fangirls. Hopefully, your favorite group makes it, if not, we’re always ready to add something new to the playlist!
One kpop tradition I’ve come to love is the farewell song that kpop idols record before they go into the military. Being a fairly new kpop fan, the ones I’m most aware of come from SHINee and BigBang (lo, the reach of BigBang!). So enjoy below five goodbye songs from some of my favorite boys.
BTS in Chicago was an epic event. It was cold and rainy, but so much fun! The first BTS Winter Concert in Chicago was full of awesome highlights, so to make sure we had a chance to really fangirl about it, we invited the awesome Megan from Noona Ya Business podcast to join us for a chat. Hear about our favorite performances, moments, and songs as we have some serious ARMY bonding moments.
We have a new obsession. Well, it has kind of been building for a while. Did it begin years ago while watching Ten on Hit the Stage? Or was it the glimpses of greatness we saw in the very back when NCT first debuted? I can’t tell you when our love began, but it has certainly been growing steadily since January, 2019 when the NCT sub-group WayV came bursting onto the scene. Read on to discover more about the awesomeness that is WayV, must watch videos, and everything a new fan might need to know about the music and group members.
It’s heeeeeere! One Fangirl stayed up late (made easier by time zones), another set their clock to wake up super early, while some of us stumbled out of bed and blasted it in our cars on the way to drop off the kids. However we expressed our fangirl dedication, we’ve all had a chance to listen to BTS’s newest album, Map of the Soul : Persona and we want to share our first thoughts with you. Let’s check out this fantastic new album together!
