🇰🇷 The KPop & JPop Thread 🇯🇵


Looks like TVXQ is releasing music videos for “Love Line” and the album title track “The Chance of Love”.

Also, the choreography version of NCT’s “Touch” M/V is available on Apple Music and iTunes for those interested.


The choreography version of “Touch” will be added to YouTube and V LIVE on the 30th as well, although there’s several uploads of it available anyway.

I’m so stupidly excited for the TVXQ comeback and trying my hardest not to purchase the physical until the inevitable repackage. :toilet:

Also, I’m not excited about Olivia Hye’s single… at all. I think she’s a rapper as JinSoul is featured on Egoist and HeeJin is on Rosy.



So sleek.

Listening to the album and can’t help but notice that Love Line (which I already love) sounds very Selena Gomez and Julia Michaels-esque with its intricate production and soft breathy vocals. Has the minimal-breathy pop trend in the Western world made its way to Korea now? I noticed NCT’s “Baby Don’t Stop” and Suzy’s “Sober” are minimal too - the latter sounding almost identical to Selena’s “Bad Liar”.


Ugh. These two have blossomed beautifully over the last few years as a duo–especially Yunho as I feel like he was the weakest member of the group vocally. I’m so fucking proud of them. The entire album is excellent. I know I said I was going to hold off for a repackage, but they really do deserve the sales, so let me snatch either the A or B version. buys both


NCT 127’s Japan debut mini album Chain will be released on May 23rd and will include “Limitless” and 4 other songs including new Japanese tracks! Chain will be a conceptual album that conveys a message about how NCT 127 will connect Korea and Japan like a chain.

Limited edition: 9 different sleeves featuring each member—24 page booklet and random trading card.

Limited edition: Comes in a special A4 size package along with behind the scenes footage from the MV and the album jacket shoot, photocard set and random trading card.

Comes with a random trading card.

I’m expecting the EP to contain remakes of “Firetruck” and “Cherry Bomb”, plus “Limitless”, “Chain” and hopefully another original track (possibly a solo Yuta record).

The “Yestoday” video is out the second!


It looks like Go Won was a fluke because this is a fucking bop.






I’m still on the fence with them, but I always give their output a go hoping
something eventually catches on; so far only “TT” and “Knock Knock” have stuck.

The “Yestoday” video is nice. Whilst it isn’t as hard-hitting as the other Empathy videos, it still is impressive on a visual scale. I quite liked Taeyong with the cockatoo, that was dope. The only flaw for the video is I personally would have liked some form of short choreography. Still a good video though!

A quick thought:
SM seems to really like overlapping photography in their visuals lately (0:54, 1:14, 2:58 onwards in “Yestoday” video). First in NCT Dream’s “Go”, then TVXQ’s “The Chance of Love” and now this. I’m intrigued. It’s becoming a more popular design trend too - see Tinashe’s Joyride single artworks and Instagram posts.
