(Wow… It has been a while. – Izzy)
“XOXO” is the first studio album from the boy group EXO (EXO-K and EXO-M).

- Baby, Don’t Cry
- Black Pearl
- Don’t Go
- Let Out The Beast
- Heart Attack
- Peter Pan
- My Lady
- Hugs and kisses? Honestly, I’m hesitant to give either.
- The ENGRISH is to die for (or it makes you want to die… Either one).
- The choice of promoted single is in question, but it seems to be an SM trend.
- Despite it’s less than stellar reviews, there are gems in the album.
- For simplicity, I will review both Korean and Chinese versions together.

Wild Cursive, aka Kuang Cao, aka 狂草 is Hangeng’s newest single from his upcoming 2nd Chinese solo album (*will update as soon as info is released and translated :P).
- The lyrics are incredibly unique and fierce!
- The song has a semi-epic fight feel to it (I say ‘semi-epic’, for it is energetic enough to fight in (?), but it’s chill enough so that your blood isn’t boiling over).
- Their weapons of choice in terms of fighting that smoke/ink business are quite amusing hahaha.
- The song, the video… It is all so interesting!

There is little information on SIGMA that I can find in English. I apologize for any inaccurate information. If there are any places where I can find more information on SIGMA, leave a comment and I will surely credit you 🙂 .
Dance or Die is a track from SIGMA’s first album SIGMA.
- The song and lyrics are quite original, in my opinion.
- This song doesn’t have an official music video. Both the top and subbed videos are SIGMA’s dance practice for Dance or Die.
- Attractive choreography
- Catchy… Makes one want to move.
- The title seems really threatening, but it’s describing a sort of sickness (read below to see what I’m trying to say).
