Kpop Review: It’s You by Super Junior

It’s You is the second promotional single from Super Junior’s third studio album “Sorry Sorry”. It’s You is an R&B pop song written and produced by E-Tribe.

POINTS

  • It’s an addictive R&B pop mix; melancholy, yet energetic.
  • Very strong beat (adds to its addictiveness).
  • 3 music videos versions: the official version, the story mv, and the dance mv, each with its own distinct flavor (discussed below).
  • Well designed choreography.

Pinocchio (Danger) is the lead single from f(x)’s first full length album “Pinocchio”.

Kpop Review: Don’t Stop/Freeze by Block B (그대로 멈춰라)

Don’t Stop (also called “Freeze”, “Don’t Move”, “Just Stop”, etc) is their debut single from their 1st mini album “Do You Wanna B?”. They debuted April 15, 2011.

*UPDATE: added video at the bottom with english subs/romanization/hangeul, CREDIT KPOPSUBS

POINTS

  • Pretty sick beat if you ask me.
  • The song seems Western in comparison to typical kpop (about a girl? Check. About love? Not really..More about… Clubbing).
  • Many find that this new 7 member group is unoriginal. I admit, they do have many striking similarities to other older groups. However, I believe there is no such thing as originality in the kpop industry. Read below, near the bottom, for my extended opinion.
  • Sports cars. Is that sexual appeal in a way? As if these boys are rich? Maybe it appeals to guy fans (“Ooh! Car! SHINee“.)

Kpop:Kissing You by SNSD

Okay! So we all know S.N.S.D as that cute girl group that shows either way too much leg or not enough. That’s for you to decide, but this blog entry is for me. Here’s my ever so wanted opinion on their song “Kissing You”.

Vocals: We all love Taeyeon’s voice. It’s, in my opinion, the strongest and most profound in the group. If you hear someone throwing in voice flips and tricks you can always count on it to be Taeyeon. MWA! Kisses to the queen of the group. Lets touch on Hyoyeon’s voice. I do love the heck out of this girl, and I strongly believe that SM entertainment does her wrong in the cute hair style/outfit department, but all her notes seemed WRONG. Her one line solo was a big no no. But hey, she’s the queen of dancing! Give the girl her props! Sunny. AWWW. Isn’t she just the cutest thing! I have fallen for Sunny’s aegyo! Her voice in this song was perfect. Cutesy song + cutesy voice= MASTER PIECE!

Lyrics: Amazing! Here’s the English translation to one of the most meaningful parts to me; “Tomorrow you are lying next to me in the warm sun. When i sing you a love song you smile the sweet & happy words I Love You”. That is the cutest thing. All ladies can relate to this whether they want the feeling or have it.

Overall Rating: Adorable! (scale of 1-10; 6)

I recommend this to all S.N.S.D fans. It’s too cute to ignore!
