KARA "New Revolution" (RELEASED TODAY) 01. ë¯¸ìŠ¤í„° Mr. 02. Wanna 03. ë§ˆë²• 04. ëª°ëž˜ëª°ëž˜ (Secretly) 05. Let It Go 06. Take A Bow 07. AHA 08. ë˜' ê°™ì€ ë§˜ (The Same Heart) 09. Wanna (Inst.) 10. ë§ˆë²• (Inst.) Kara is back with their 2nd full length album, but I have to say, though the song is okay, I was a bit disappointed with their music video for "Wanna". "New Revolution" is an album that has brought Kara along with the electronica wave that is the trend in K-pop, however the songs still sound very much "Kara", which is great. I love it when an artist can change styles yet still stick to their root sound that we all have come to love. Hence, I recommend "Secretly" and "The Same Heart". Kara "Wanna" Video Credits: SweetMelodix Dream OST 01. SHINee - Countdown 02. Someday - Always Two tracks off the OST for the highly anticipated drama "Dream" (featuring Joo Jin Mo, Son Dam Bi and Kim Bum) have been released. "Countdown" by Shinee is kind of like K-Pop's attempt at "Eye of the Tiger" while "Always" by Someday is a pop ballad song that starts slow but picks up into the chorus. Someday was also featured as an artist for the Boys Over Flowers soundtrack with the song "Do You Know". Both are tracks that I recommend. Now to go watch the drama... Listen to SHINee here: Click Me Someday - "Always" Video Credits: 911urnobody T-ara "ê±°ì§"ë§ (Lies)" Sounds Like: Brown Eyed Girls, Seeya 01. ê±°ì§"ë§ /Lies (Part.1) 02. ê±°ì§"ë§ /Lies (Part.2) 03. ë†€ì•„ë³¼ëž˜/ Wanna Play 04. ê±°ì§"ë§ (Ballad Ver.) To be quite honest, I wasn't expecting much of this group, and rightfully so, because I got what I expected. Not to say that I don't like this album because the songs are pretty catchy, but it would have been better if the girls brought something to the table that actually surprised me. The song lies sounds similar to Brown Eyed Girls right before "Sound-G" dropped. T-ara "Lies" Video Credits: 1LightTiara The Quiett "Back On The Beats 0.5" Sounds Like: Underground Hip Hop 01.

The Quiett has produced tracks for many MC's and has also been featured with many other popular rappers of today, such as Epik High and Dynamic Duo.

Yi Jin Woo- "ì•„ìŠ¤í"¼ë¦° ì†Œë…„" Video Credits: Urnobody911 Fanny Fink - "ë´‰ì¸" Video Credits: Urnobody911 Staff Recommendation: PK Heman "Gloria" 1. Gloria ( Feat.Goeunê³ ì€ ) 2. U.U.U ( Feat.Jace ì œì´ìŠ¤, K-Jun ) Poopiness: PK Heman, who used to do a lot of rapping for ballads now switches gear with an upbeat hip hop track. Depressing melodramatic music didn't sell, and so he took the next obvious step, sex. Well, consider me sold. You will be singing the English part of chorus in no time. "Bang Bang You! Gloria, up and up and up and up and down." Just make sure no one is around, or they might misunderstand, if you know what I mean. You know, misunderstand that you are listening to English music. What were YOU thinking about? PK Heman "Gloria" Video Credits: miumiudolls That is your k-pop releases for the week! Remember if there's something I missed make sure you let me know! Otherwise, until next time!
