I have to confess that in the past few days, I’ve been revisiting Cause I’m a God Girl because of a reupload on YouTube. And I’m loving it a whole bunch. Ok, I’m still not into the BTOB member’s part, because it’s absolute shit and I breaks the song too much, but the chorus is too damn catchy. So yeah, sorry Hyuna
I’ve been trying really hard with Red Light, from f(x).
It’s now really starting to grow on me. But still, I cringe every time the chorus comes up. It’s not that it’s bad. It’s that there’s something wrong with the way things are connected to each other in this song. Like maybe the last note of the bridge doesn’t go well with the first note of the chorus or something. I really like the bridge a lot though. And I feel like the verse might be a bit to long so that my ears get use to the feel of the verse+bridge, then the chorus mess things up too much and I have trouble “balancing” everything out…
Maybe all this happened because I was expecting sooooo damn much (maybe too much?) and the MV is so damn good, and that in my mind, the song doesn’t really live up to its greatness.
One thing I’m wondering though is that Kpop is, at least for me, usually an easy digested music. I like, I don’t, that’s about it. I had to work on this one. It didn’t even came up from itself as the few other song I’ve listed in this segment. So I’m like, maybe it’s the work I did I like more than the song itself? Maybe I’m somewhat forcing this song down my throat? I’m still puzzled about it quite a bit, but yeah. I guess I didn’t pull it off my playlist yet so that’s a good thing.
Least convincing “mea culpa” ever ahaha
This time, it happened just like with Yoboseyo from NU’EST. I kinda was really not into it at all. But then, one day, I had a glimpse of a song on repeat in my head and I couldn’t find from which song it was from. I started to search for something that sounded like it in the recent songs that were released, but couldn’t find it either.
Then it hit me. It was the early first part of Request, from INFINITE.
Don’t get me wrong, I still kinda not liked the chorus that much, but the verse are just so pretty and beautifully sung.
So yeah, mea culpa, I was wrong to doubt you INFINITE!
So this one I hate at first. The MV was too pretentious, like, I haven’t heard that much about them before and the intro of the MV is all about how they are internationally a big hit with this song… Yeah, those kind of staging are not my cup of tea. And the “quack” in the chorus… I couldn’t help but thinking about ducks.
But then, while I was watching the latest video of Eat Your Kimchi and they said something about the fact this song was suppose to be a T-ARA song, I’ve tried it again. They said about the same thing I was thinking about the MV, so it made me wonder if I listened to the song more, but without watching that stupid MV, maybe I would like it since I like the style T-ARA usual go with.
And it hit me… This song is good!
F-ve Dolls – 1st Soulmate (aka Soulmate, aka Soulmate #1)
I’m not really a big fan of F-ve Dolls too so maybe that’s was I had a hard time at first. But seriously, everytime it comes up on my playlist, I always feel like I’m listening to a T-ARA song. I still kinda laught at the “quack”, but it doesn’t bother me anymore. And without the MV, the song actually makes a lot more since to me. It’s just fun to listen to it and get psyched!
So yeah, every now and then there’s a song I either totally hate or just really do not care for. But after a month or so, something happens, and BAM! I fall in love with it.
This one (Be Warmed by Davichi) I always was kinda not terribly into it, but I could recognize it was kinda good. There was a comment about it on Youtube that lingered into my mind for a long while. But I couldn’t find it again. It said something about the name in Korean, the double meaning of it, about getting warmer and melting. And that Korean was a beautiful poetic language. If someone knows about what I’m talking about, please enlighten me because I’ve searched to find exactly what is the exact meaning of the word, what it refers to. I think the comment was talking about cold winter days, it has something to do about warming yourself when you’ve been freezing outside or something like that. Anyway.
Anyway, so while searching for that one comment a month or so after dismissing the song, I listened to it again. And I fell in love with it.
I highly suggested, for those who didn’t, to check out the subtitles, the meaning of the song is sure a bit cheezy, but you know, it’s a love song so…
The voice of one of the two girls is really pretty. Mainly in those parts where she reaches some high notes before the chorus.
I’m not saying I’m in love with Davichi know though. This song is really great and beautiful, but most of their songs sucks really hard or are just horribly boring. That said, I’ll sure listen to them more carefully now.
