LOONA's Go Won should release her track in a week or so to hopefully continue their excellent run of singles

Chunga's good, good do well at a Eurovision, I like that we have a couple of popular female solo pop stars doing their thing now.

sigh, that Jonghyun video is making me sad all over again. He really was one of the best.

Just can't get behind Ravi as a rapper (he's an OK producer) but nice to see Park Jimin getting some work.

I really like Jonghyun's Rewind off of the new record:

The whole album is great but I can't quite bring myself to replay it. It's #1 on iTunes BTW.

I'm really enjoying the fanscreams for East Light, they sound like elementary school students...

new red velvet is ok but their r&b 'velvet' singles are never as good as the pop 'red' ones

loona continue to be excellent

Loona stuff continues to sound quite different from release to release but maintain its cool, and a conceptual consistency.

Velvet song seems ok, but yeah, when they're not 'Red' they tend to get more generic

I guess I'm in the minority that likes Bad Boy more than their last two singles... winter is the best season for RnB and the production on this is so nice.

I really like the Go Won track too!

I like Bad Boy a fair amount, and more than Peek-A-Boo, but it's summer here. it's probably their best r&b single so far but Red Flavor is my favourite single of theirs.

Thoughts on Holland, the first openly gay idol? song isn't great imo but am glad there's actual making out in the video.

And I really like how breezy this iKon track is (their actual title track was bleh). The fun choreography helps:

He has a nice voice (Holland). The BF is cute. There have been other idols who were all-but-out but it's something different to have a scene that purposefully removes the ambiguity. I wonder if he'll end up with a niche audience like Double A (never forget).

or the fabulous, Kazaky-inspired N.O.M :D https://youtu.be/3vmlYkbcVeA

yeah someone on omona pointed out that even Adam Lambert hasn't had any gay scenes in his videos, which honestly surprised me considering how long he's been out.

Roz, Sunday, 4 February 2018 05:25 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I'm reading that most of Holland's fans are international, which could be a problem for him financially (again similar to Double A). A solo singer is a lot cheaper to produce than a group though, hopefully he'll make it.

I have to say that I like Love Scenario more than Beautiful... on the one hand Love Scenario is really minimal and sparse, so on that count it's kinda boring but on the other hand it's got the old-tyme-country feel with the weird off-beat rhythms like Bae Bae had and that's a recent YG production trend I enjoy and support.

Another excellent single from Sunmi:

New Suzy is good too, kind of Bad Liar-ish:
