My Favorite 30 K-Pop Songs From the First Half of 2020

Hello all! I’m taking a break from profile updating to try out out something new. Back when I was more active on this blog, I used to do a Top 50 list of my favorite K-pop songs at the end of each year. (NOTE: Even though I say “songs,” I actually mean “comebacks” or “debuts”Continue reading “My Favorite 30 K-Pop Songs From the First Half of 2020”

Katherine’s Top K-Pop Releases of 2018: Intro and Special Mentions

It’s that time of year again! Starting today, I’ll be releasing my usual set of end of year posts and walking you through my favorite debuts and comebacks of 2018. It was a pretty great year for K-pop, so there was a LOT to cover – but it was great to go back through allContinue reading “Katherine’s Top K-Pop Releases of 2018: Intro and Special Mentions”

Katherine’s Top K-Pop Releases of 2017, Part Five: #11-20

This is probably the most personal section of my list.  I tend to naturally follow the trends, so most of my Top 10 songs were really popular in Korea or internationally (or both). But interestingly enough, this second tier speaks a lot to my more individual tastes. Given the content of half of these songs,Continue reading “Katherine’s Top K-Pop Releases of 2017, Part Five: #11-20”

Katherine’s Top K-Pop Releases of 2017, Part One: #51-100

About a year ago, I kicked off this blog with my 50 favorite K-pop songs of 2016 listed by season.  This time, I decided it would be fun to do an “official” ranking. So, I grabbed a set of index cards and wrote down all the songs I wanted to talk about… only to endContinue reading “Katherine’s Top K-Pop Releases of 2017, Part One: #51-100”

Rapid(ish) Reviews, September 2017: B1A4, B.A.P., GFriend, and More

August was hectic, and October and November are shaping up to be just as wild.  So September provided a nice little breather!  Things were on the lighter side, but there were still plenty of comebacks to enjoy. I’ll admit I spent most of my time fangirling over EXO and BTS, but some of my otherContinue reading “Rapid(ish) Reviews, September 2017: B1A4, B.A.P., GFriend, and More”

Favorites of 2017: July

I had my suspicions before, but July proved I’m heavily biased towards SM artists.  It’s more of a “I like their music/style” thing rather than a “SM is the best/blindly following the company” thing, but there it is. I always try to be diverse, since there are so many other groups out there to love.Continue reading “Favorites of 2017: July”

Favorites of 2017: May

Oh my gosh, May feels like forever ago. K-pop moves so darn fast.  There wasn’t a whole lot going on in the beginning (because of elections?), but the last week brought a whole rush of comebacks that threw me off schedule.  I considered skipping this post altogether because it’s been so long, but ultimately my perfectionism needContinue reading “Favorites of 2017: May”

Favorites of 2017: April

April was one of those months where everyone and their mother had a comeback.  There was so much music that it was definitely hard to keep up!  For someone so multifandom as I am, it got pretty overwhelming.  But the good part was that there was a lot of variety and that there was somethingContinue reading “Favorites of 2017: April”
