  • (G)I-DLE Vol. 2 - 2 (Random Version)
    Here come the Super Ladies!
    January 31, 2024 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    The concept queens are back! (G)I-DLE returns in a strong and sassy manner again and makes themselves the Super Ladies in their second full-length album 2. "I am the top, super lady! I never lose yeah! ('Cause got a super power) I am a god, super lady! I NEVER DIE, see? Everyone follow!" With So Yeon's assured opening, Super Lady (Track 1) is an empowering anthem that displays (G)I-DLE's confidence and fearlessness at their best in edgy metallic sounds. Despite being slightly underwhelming music-wise, Super Lady still comes off as an on-brand track that perfectly shows their strong and powerful style. Serving as the pre-release single, bubblegum bass-based pop number Wife (Track 8) surely... [read more]
  • Kyu Hyun EP Album - Restart (Random Version)
    Recharge and Restart
    January 31, 2024 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    In mid-2023, Super Junior's Kyu Hyun aspired to make a Restart in his music career by leaving SM Entertainment and joining Antenna Music – a record label founded by musician Yoo Hee Yeol and home to singers like Lucid Fall, Sam Kim, Kwon Jin Ah and Jung Seung Hwan. Kyu Hyun officially embarks on a new music journey with his solo six-track EP Restart in the beginning of 2024. Rather than his signature soft ballads, Kyu Hyun takes on pop rock through intro track Restart (Track 1) and lead single "The Story Behind" (Track 2). Restart gives a warm and hopeful opening to the album by reassuring listeners that he will always be there, come what may. In title track "The Story Behind," he expresses... [read more]
  • Turn To Me, Mukai-kun (Blu-ray Box) (Japan Version)
    Ten years of singledom can make you clueless
    January 31, 2024 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    It's hard to not get just a tinge of Cherry Magic deja vu from Turn To Me, Mukai-kun when Akaso Eiji appears as a fluffy-haired, thirtysomething salaryman who is trying to decipher his feelings and relationship status. Mukai-kun is slightly less panicky than Cherry Magic's Adachi, but no less sincere and self-analytical on his bumpy journey towards understanding love and himself. Based on Nemu Yoko's manga, the NTV comedy-drama takes a fresh approach to analyzing modern perspectives on romance and relationships through hapless hero Mukai-kun's encounters with different women. Having been single for a decade since getting dumped by his college sweetheart, Mukai-kun is determined to get a... [read more]
  • Sonzaishoumei (SINGLE+DVD) (First Press Limited Edition) (Japan Version)
    The KIDS are alright
    November 30, 2023 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    LDH debuted three new EXILE TRIBE groups in one fell sweep in August this year - KID PHENOMENON, THE JET BOYZ and WOLF HOWL HARMONY - and the first of the Gen Z groups to return with a second single is KID PHENOMENON. Sonzaishoumei ("Existence") continues the young, fresh and energetic vibes of their major debut single Wheelie, but with an added soulful edge of determination. "Existence" draws you in with a silky medium-tempo melody in the verses and an exuberant uptempo chorus that embodies the courageous spirit of "running through the darkness." The song's rousing message of shaking off doubts and worries and forging ahead on one's own path is ever appropriate as the ending theme of... [read more]
  • aespa Mini Album Vol. 4 - Drama (Drama Version)
    They bring all the DRAMA
    November 30, 2023 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    Half a year after MY WORLD, aespa returns with their fourth mini-album Drama, bringing listeners some dynamic and empowering songs to jam to. Since they've put aside their "ae" and "KWANGYA" metaverse concept, we are now able to appreciate and focus more on the group's musicality. The girls bring all the drama in the hip-hop dance lead single Drama (Track 1)! Winter and Ningning slay with their on-point high notes, while Karina and Giselle also portray interesting vocal acting in their verses. Though Drama is not as addictive as their last comeback title Spicy, it's definitely a song that recalls the strong and dark vibe of their debut era. "Now you see me. Now you don't." With a powerful... [read more]
  • The Narrow Road (2022) (DVD) (Taiwan Version)
    No rest for the weary
    October 30, 2023 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    There's a Chinese saying that enemies are bound to meet on a narrow road. While there are no concrete enemies in Lam Sum's 2022 film The Narrow Road, there are many tangible troubles that are clearly coming and yet can't be avoided when all of life itself is a narrow road for those living hand to mouth. Set during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, the poignant yet low-key drama offers a realistic look into the daily lives and struggles of Hong Kong's low-wage working class. Louis Cheung is excellent as Chak, a decent hardworking everyman who runs a small one-man cleaning company. While it may seem like pandemic is great business for cleaners, he is barely getting by with limited help... [read more]
