Katherine’s Top K-Pop Releases of 2020: #1-10

I’m really excited about this year’s Top 10 because it’s a little different from past ones. As a K-pop fan, I usually just jump from one comeback to the next and love whatever’s trending at the moment. So normally, my Top 10 list is filled with songs from the end of the year – generallyContinue reading “Katherine’s Top K-Pop Releases of 2020: #1-10”

MAMA 2020 Recap: Predictable Awards, but Epic Performances

Much to my frustration, the awards have been getting more and more predictable every year. I’m proud of all the groups andContinue reading “MAMA 2020 Recap: Predictable Awards, but Epic Performances”
