    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 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).

    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]

    February 28, 2023 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    "STAYC girls, it's going down!" Since their debut with SO BAD in 2020, STAYC has been stealing hearts with their impressive live performance skills and catchy tunes crafted by producers Black Eyed Pilseung. They make their first comeback of the year with fourth single album Teddy Bear, spreading their cutesy and bubbly "teen fresh" vibe on Valentine's Day! Though STAYC is well-loved for their refreshing and energetic live singing, their singing style has always been a double-edged sword – so overpowering that it's sometimes exhausting to the ear. But in lead single Teddy Bear (Track 1), the girls sound way more comfortable, especially Yoon, Su Min and J. The song adorably expresses the... [read more]

    This year, K-pop is in full bloom with the rise of new blood like IVE, NewJeans, LE SSERAFIM, Kep1er and NMIXX. Among fifth-generation K-pop girl groups, CSR may be a lesser-known name, but their refreshing song and style are worth our attention!

    October 31, 2022 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    Just half a year after their chart-sweeping TOMBOY, (G)I-DLE comes back with another masterpiece release – I love.

    Drenched with Pink Venom
    October 3, 2022 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    Another two years have passed, and finally a new BLACKPINK album has arrived! In BLACKPINK's second full-length album BORN PINK, the girls share their sensitive and sentimental thoughts in more dauntless lyrics (three of the eight new songs are marked explicit). BORN PINK opens with the group's signature and charismatic hip-hop style jams. Serving as the group's first release in two years, the multi-genre pre-release single Pink Venom (Track 1) is creative yet slightly underwhelming as it's not as resonant as expected, but the song's charting proves that public reception is still good. Title track Shut Down (Track 2) combines classical music – sampling of Niccolò Paganini's La Campanella –... [read more]

    Soul-stirring spring melodies
    May 3, 2022 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    We all enjoy Bolbbalgan4's spring jams – like Bom, Some, Travel, Hug – so it's sad that we didn't hear any spring-themed releases from her in the past two years. This year, Ji Young finally brings some sweet and lighthearted songs that put us in a lovey-dovey mood during the blossoming season. Our dreamy journey to Seoul sets off with first track Love Story, a modern rock number with high-teen spirit.
