Delayed Reaction: “Sticker” by NCT 127

I’m currently finishing up the rest of my 2021 reaction posts, and “Sticker” is definitely a comeback that I want to talk about. While I’ve always considered myself a multifan, I often name NCT 127 as my “ultimate” K-pop group. And if I’m talking purely about the music, then they’re absolutely #1 on my list.Continue reading “Delayed Reaction: “Sticker” by NCT 127″

Delayed Reaction: “Deja Vu” by ATEEZ

As most of you already know, things are rather busy for me lately. There are lots of big changes happening, and I haven’t had time to write reactions for three months (cry). Normally, I’d just cut my losses and start over in the new year… but there are so many fall comebacks that I reallyContinue reading “Delayed Reaction: “Deja Vu” by ATEEZ”

Knee Jerk Reaction: “Outsider” by BTOB

I have to be honest here: I don’t listen to BTOB all that frequently. I think they’re amazingly talented (particularly in singing), and they definitely have some stellar songs. However, most of their music is generally not the kind I’m naturally drawn to. Despite that, I’ve always been fond of them and I make sureContinue reading “Knee Jerk Reaction: “Outsider” by BTOB”

Knee Jerk Reaction: “Splash” by MIRAE

(NOTE: This reaction post is a little shorter than normal due to lack of time and personal circumstances.) Truthfully, I haven’t been too invested in this year’s rookie groups so far. It’s not a question of talent or ability, since I always want everyone to succeed. It’s 100% about the major age gap at play,Continue reading “Knee Jerk Reaction: “Splash” by MIRAE”

Knee Jerk Reaction: “Trigger” by VERIVERY

(NOTE: This reaction post is a little shorter than normal due to lack of time and personal circumstances.) VERIVERY is one of those K-pop groups that I always end up forgetting about when I REALLY shouldn’t. I genuinely like their stuff, and I think it’s great they’ve really been stepping up their game lately –Continue reading “Knee Jerk Reaction: “Trigger” by VERIVERY”

Knee Jerk Reaction: “Gas Pedal” by CRAVITY

(NOTE: This reaction post is a little shorter than normal due to lack of time and personal circumstances.) Ah, CRAVITY. They’ve only been around for like a year and a half, but somehow my journey with them has been all over the place. They’re on a very small list of rookie groups I’m interested inContinue reading “Knee Jerk Reaction: “Gas Pedal” by CRAVITY”

Knee Jerk Reaction: “Wave” by CIX

I’m going a bit out of order here – I posted about Stray Kids earlier this week, but there were a couple of groups like CIX that I should have covered first chronologically. This is because I originally planned to do a summary post and react to a bunch of August comebacks all at once.Continue reading “Knee Jerk Reaction: “Wave” by CIX”

Knee Jerk Reaction: “Thunderous” by Stray Kids

Stray Kids is a group that I’ve been slowly but surely getting more into as the years go by. I like them a lot, and I always check in on their comebacks… but I’m just not quite at the stage where I’m super invested in them. They’re undeniably talented with an impressive discography, so IContinue reading “Knee Jerk Reaction: “Thunderous” by Stray Kids”

Knee Jerk Reaction: “LO$ER=LO♡ER” by TXT

My knowledge of TXT hasn’t really changed much since their last comeback in June – I’m still at the stage of just knowing their hit songs and their names. (And I apparently still can’t fully recognize them, because I recently realized I’ve been mixing up Taehyun and Beomgyu this ENTIRE time and I’m super embarrassedContinue reading “Knee Jerk Reaction: “LO$ER=LO♡ER” by TXT”

Knee Jerk Reaction: “Thrill Ride” by The Boyz

It’s kind of wild how my feelings about The Boyz have changed in such a short amount of time. They debuted during a period when I was pretty ambivalent about youthful and upbeat music – which was their original concept – so I didn’t really pay attention to them for a while. But when IContinue reading “Knee Jerk Reaction: “Thrill Ride” by The Boyz”
