Mid-Year Check-In: My Favorite K-pop Releases of 2021 (So Far)

I genuinely can’t believe we’re already well into July!!! Seriously, where has the time gone??? Since we’re officially over midway through 2021, it’s time for me to make another “halfway point” post about the K-pop releases that I’ve spent the most time and energy on from January to June. I tried this out last year,Continue reading “Mid-Year Check-In: My Favorite K-pop Releases of 2021 (So Far)”

Favorites of 2021: June

We’re pretty much halfway through July, but whatever June in K-pop typically involves a rush of comebacks that can overwhelm a multifan, and this year was no exception. So many groups and artists I regularly follow dropped new music that I found it hard to choose favorites. In fact, no song released in June madeContinue reading “Favorites of 2021: June”

Favorites of 2021: May

(I feel like this post comes out later every time I do it, but life has been truly crazy lately @.@) Up until this point, picking a few favorites each month was pretty easy. I found myself naturally gravitating towards some comebacks more than others, and everything just kind of fell into place. But nowContinue reading “Favorites of 2021: May”

Favorites of 2021: April

(This was supposed to come out this past weekend, but… I made six consecutive posts on Sunday and was totally drained ^^”’) I honestly can’t believe that we’re done with April and already several days into May. This year is moving by so fast, and I can’t deal. While there was an abundance of newContinue reading “Favorites of 2021: April”

Favorites of 2021: March

As usual, March is the time of year when things start to pick up in K-pop and more groups and artists start making their comebacks. While I did have several favorites for both January and February, there was a major difference in the time I spent on my #1 song versus the others. This month,Continue reading “Favorites of 2021: March”

Favorites of 2021: February

While January had more releases than I expected, February marked a return to those more typical winter months that are slower for K-pop. While I generally liked most everything that came out, nothing really held my attention or strongly suited my tastes until about halfway through the month. I usually have lots of favorites duringContinue reading “Favorites of 2021: February”

Favorites of 2021: January

Back when I started this blog, I used to post about my K-pop favorites every month. I’m bringing that back, but I’m also changing it up a bit. This time, I really want to see how my preferences change throughout the whole year. Since we just started 2021, this post will only cover January. ButContinue reading “Favorites of 2021: January”

Katherine’s Top K-Pop Releases of 2020: #21-30

Back in June or July, I made a list with a bunch of K-pop songs that I liked from the first half of 2020. With two exceptions, all of the songs in this post were originally high up on that list. Originally, I was drawn to them because I thought they were really creative andContinue reading “Katherine’s Top K-Pop Releases of 2020: #21-30”

Katherine’s Top K-Pop Releases of 2018: #1-10

Yes, this does in fact say “2018.” I WAS planning on writing my regular Top 50 list for 2020, but I came across this as I was going through my drafts and cleaning out some old posts that never got written. I TOTALLY thought I had posted this before I moved to Korea and wentContinue reading “Katherine’s Top K-Pop Releases of 2018: #1-10”
