[Current Obsessions #2] Random Play

So after watching a video of Jungkook, Jimin, and J-Hope dancing to girl group songs EXTREMELY well and ON POINT (I was incredibly surprised at how good they were), I discovered the joy of watching Weekly Idol’s segments of “Random Play.” In this segment, the guest of the day has to perform to choreography of their song at random cuts. I found it so hilarious when the group had to first find out what song it is and what part it’s at, then determine the correct moves, and lastly make sure they’re in the right position. Many of them actually were able to accomplish it well, proving how well they had to know the choreography and how much they practiced. Others were well… they received the “It’s your song! Why can’t you dance?!” Award.

[Music Monday] It’s the Phantom

Oh hello, it’s rather late for a Music Monday but I fell asleep for 6 hours T^T. But there’s 20 minutes left until midnight so I will talk about a song!

Phantom is a group that I was fond of since pre-debut and they for sure have impressed many people since then. However, they still don’t get enough recognition they deserve! Phantom are very talented singers, rappers, and producers. All three of them rap and two of them are vocals. They have a wide range of style of songs going from slower ballad-like songs to club bangers in a single album. Sanchez’s voice is incredibly unique and you could always tell which is his. Although not you’re typical K-pop group, they can be considered by far more talented than many K-pop groups more popular than them. What I find with many of their songs is the fact that I can understand what the song is about without having to look up the lyrics because of the way they present themselves in the music video and style. “Seoul Lonely” really hits the point of being alone so much for me through the music video and song that I myself can’t help but feel lonely too. Check out Phantom guys!

[Music Monday] TAEYANG

Sol is back and releasing his RiseĀ album. The BIGBANG Youtube page recently posted his new music video for “Eyes, Nose, Lips.” Although I have always been a fan of BIGBANG, I haven’t really been following Taeyang’s activities. I wasn’t really sure when his album was coming out so this music video was a pleasant surprise. After the disappointment I received from “Ringa Linga,” I was pleased with his new video. I did not expect a slower song from him and I found that it really brought out his voice. I’ve been replaying this song for awhile too and I think that it’s great that the music video was simple and not too extreme. So Taeyang, you have redeemed yourself in my book.
