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: 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”

Knee Jerk Reaction: “Tail” by Sunmi

Sunmi’s solo career has been absolutely flourishing over the last several years. She always delivers catchy as hell songs filled with her own eclectic flair, truly marching to the beat of her own drum. “Tail” fits right into that unique musical world she’s built for herself post-JYP, but it also reminds me of the musicContinue reading “Knee Jerk Reaction: “Tail” by Sunmi”

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”
