🇰🇷 The KPop & JPop Thread 🇯🇵




Crow, Manhattan Tango and Mannis Chocolat sound like total BOPS.


I’m honestly not feeling it much. The production is quite grating.

Here’s a throwback to Lee Hyori’s debut single in 2003.
The video has a circa-2000s Britney Spears and Beyoncé vibe.


Stylish E is still fucking flawless.


EXO and CL are performing at the closing ceremony of the 2018 Winter Olympics. Hopefully this means a lot of exposure and new music is coming from CL very soon!


Allkpop posted this a couple of days ago regarding NCT’s 18-member comeback.

allkpop.com: NCT will be launching their biggest project yet through ‘NCT 2018’, a grand-scale comeback project featuring an 18-member lineup.

According to SM Entertainment, ‘NCT 2018’ will feature a combined NCT including NCT U, NCT 127, NCT Dream, as well as newly added members, coming out at 18 total. The label has currently prepared 6 MVs to showcase the various team combinations that ‘NCT 2018’ is capable of.

NCT will begin their ‘NCT 2018’ promotions through ‘NCT 2018 Yearbook’, then follow up with a video series about NCT’s philosophy. Their comeback album is set for release in March.

I’m excited! I’ve been waiting for a NCT U comeback since their debut.



I love how NCT are conceptually the male version of f(x) and not just another retread of DBSK/SuJu/Shinee/EXO, and that they’re not afraid to experiment. That being said, I hope it doesn’t end up blowing up in SM’s or NCT’s faces in the end when they don’t become as popular as the aforementioned groups.


it’s technically her fourth EP, but okay


I can’t believe SM are only giving her a mini-album :smirk:


The EP consist of seven tracks. The lead single, “One Shot, Two Shot” is deep house.

excuse me, but where did you come from nct u? damn.


The “Boss” teaser gives me DBSK “Mirotic” vibes.
