  • [Single Review] F-ve Dolls 'Soulmate #1'

    August 19, 2013 @ 6:43 pm

    F-ve Dolls is the first to venture out after Core Contents Media's Grand Band Member Shuffle of 2013.

Well, the girls are f

In my opinion, their imitator style allowed nothing released by them to date to be anything truly memorable by any stretch of the imagination. Yet the buildup and response for the group's latest release, 'DOLLS', has been surprisingly popular. So
