    The New First Love Icons
    December 1, 2022 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    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! CSR, whose name is taken from the initials of "cho sa rang" ("first love" in Korean), sparks cute and jolly energy with their sweet and upbeat songs in their first single album Sequence: 17&. Produced by MonoTree's Hwang Hyun, title track ♡TiCON (Track 1) expresses the shy, confused and heart-fluttering feelings of young girls in love through a teen-pop dance number: "Please explain how you feel. How do you love?! Whenever I want to see you, I put... [read more]

    We're born Nxde
    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. The girls portray six stories revolving around different kinds of love in their fifth mini-album. Minnie, Mi Yeon, So Yeon, Yuqi and Shuhua confidently break stereotypes again in the groundbreaking title track Nxde (Track 1)! Sampling Habanera from the opera Carmen, the alternative pop jam Nxde is inspired by Marilyn Monroe, with empowering lyrics about Nxde stars unveiling their true selves regardless of what others think: "If you were expecting some rated R show, oh I'm sorry, but that's not what we're showing. For refund, see that direction, whatever people say is not my... [read more]

    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]

    August 31, 2022 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    Emerging on the Cantopop scene with two astounding records, fast-rising singer-producer Terence Lam has become one of the hottest stars of Hong Kong over the past two years. Unlike his past releases (which included mostly his solely penned songs), Memento records Terence exploring more possibilities in his voice and music through collaborating with other songwriters and lyricists.

    Sweet Duets For You
    August 1, 2022 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    Since 2021, Arrow Wei has been releasing her remakes of different popular Mandopop hits, such as Queen Wei's "Rhythm of the Rain," Fish Leong's "Courage," Rachel Liang's "That Girl Said To Me," 831's "Miss You 3000," Zayin's "Blue Eyes," and more. This time, she collaborates with entertainer WINNI to melt our hearts with heartwarming duets. If Kenji Wu's "A Poem For You" is a soulful poem about how crazy he can go for his crush, Arrow and WINNI's remake of it would be an enchanting ode to love that gently recounts the romantic moments shared in a relationship. Delivered in the pure vocal tones of the girls, this newly arranged version of "A Poem For You" (Track 1) gives off a lovey-dovey... [read more]

J.seph, BM, So Min and Ji Woo all took part in writing lyrics for the intro Break Down (Track 1), a song that shows their edgy and powerful side: "You say I gotta look good, I gotta look bad.

    Hung Kaho – you may have heard of him from "Teardrops in the Ocean" (Warner's I Don't Wanna Be Your IG Story music project) or his collaborations with MC Cheung Tinfu. But now, the promising Hong Kong singer-songwriter has established his own style that makes him one of a kind in the Cantopop world. Four years after debut, Hung Kaho finally presents his first physical album Learning Curve, which captures his ventures into various "Experiences" and "Experiments" in his singing career.

    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. Love Story cutely conveys the dreamlike feelings of a person in love: "It feels like the stars in the night sky are pouring down / Oh god please this is not a dream."

    Dive into our hearts
    April 27, 2022 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    Starship Entertainment's latest girl group IVE shot to fame in late 2022 with their chart-topping debut hit ELEVEN, which swept 13 trophies on music shows. With two IZ*ONE members in the group, you already know they're going to be big, but they've gone even higher than expected with such a well-made and stylish debut single. Four months after their eye-catching debut, the girls come back stronger and sassier with the new single album LOVE DIVE! IVE shows confidence and promotes self-love in the captivating, dark modern pop title track LOVE DIVE (Track 1). While some may suggest that it's merely about romantic love, LOVE DIVE can also be interpreted as looking into the mirror and falling in... [read more]
  12. WEi Mini Album Vol. 4 - Love Part.1 : First Love (FALLING IN LOVE Version) WEi Mini Album Vol. 4 - Love Part.1 : First Love (FALLING IN LOVE Version) WEi
    Loveliness Overload
    March 31, 2022 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    From debut single Twilight to All or Nothing and Bye Bye Bye, WEi has pulled off various concepts in their first album trilogy. Out of all the concepts they've tried, I still think that cute, bubbly music and fashion style suit them the best, like DOREMIFA from IDENTITY: First Sight. This time, the boys finally reveal their high-spirited and youthful vibe by singing stories about first love in their fourth mini-album Love Part.1: First Love. Love Part.1: First Love sets its dreamy and romantic mood with Dae Hyeon's Britpop-style BLOSSOM (Track 1) that compares first love to the blossoming season. They shyly confess to a crush in the feel-good title track Too Bad (Track 2): "This... [read more]

    2022, the year to celebrate BTOB's tenth debut anniversary, becomes even more meaningful with their promise to Be Together in their first group comeback in four years. As always, BTOB radiates warmth and positivity through their beautiful singing in their third full-length album, Be Together.

    They Rise and Bloom
    January 28, 2022 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    There are many TV series and web dramas about K-pop idols, but honestly, not many of them are compelling enough for audiences to watch until the very last episode. JTBC's 2021 drama IDOL: The Coup, however, won me over. Rather than revealing the secret lives or romance of idols, IDOL: The Coup focuses on five girls from the group Cotton Candy struggling and striving to achieve their dream – to win #1 on a music show before disbanding – while fighting against different powers and learning to accept what comes their way. IDOL: The Coup's soundtrack offers a range of original songs from its fictional groups Cotton Candy and MARS. Cotton Candy's cute debut single White Day, alluring Honest,... [read more]

    I'LL be your grace
    January 28, 2022 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    Korean singer-songwriter I'LL made a name for himself while taking part in JTBC's audition program Superband in 2019. With his outstanding producing skills and unique vocal color, the frontman led his band Hoppipolla to finish on top of the podium, and brought listeners a series of healing music to calm minds. Now, I'LL reveals more sides of himself as a musician in his solo EP KIWI MIXTAPE. While I'LL himself has said it's hard to define what genre the album is, KIWI MIXTAPE genuinely works as a collection of self-penned compositions that he loves, as well as a way to share thoughts he's had in 2021. Opening track "Liar" (Track 1) is a catchy R&B/soul jam about getting hurt by his... [read more]

    The Queen's return
    November 29, 2021 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    Thanks to MMTG's "Hit Songs You Hear Secretly" and "Songs That Deserve a Comeback" concert projects, we got to see some of our favorite second-generation K-pop groups reuniting on stage, and T-ara was one of them. Months after their reunion, Qri, Eun Jung, Hyo Min and Ji Yeon keep their promise with fans and make a self-funded comeback with the new single album Re:T-ARA! T-ara shows the classic "T-ara style" in All Kill (Track 1)! They dress in chic cowgirl looks for this heartbreak anthem by producer Cho Young Soo and lyricist Ahn Young Min. Giving off poignant and irresistible feelings, All Kill reminds of T-ara's megahits Day by Day and Cry Cry, which were both also created by Cho and... [read more]

    K-Trot world domination
    October 29, 2021 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    Survival audition programs Miss Trot and Mr. Trot have taken Korea by storm in the recent two years, turning nameless singers like Song Ga In (winner of Miss Trot) and Lim Young Woong (winner of Mr. Trot) into superstars. Their significance goes beyond just being "good singers" – they've brought fandom culture to middle-aged audiences and introduced the traditional Korean music genre to younger generations. Wrapping up their group activities, Mr. Trot Top 6 gather their solo digital singles into their first (and temporarily last) full-length album Thanks for You. Young Tak and Jang Min Ho deliver the most authentic and traditional style of trot music and singings in their solo tracks.... [read more]

    Her never-ending voyage of love
    September 30, 2021 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    Two decades after Golden Flower, C-pop diva Karen Mok finally presents her new Cantonese album – The Voyage – to record her remarkable stories and emotions throughout her 28-year-long music journey. Last year, Karen swept charts and awards with the hit Cantonese digital single "Breathing is Hazardous," for which a rooftop live version is included in this album. She brings new modern woman insights in the 2021 version of "A Woman for All Seasons," which is again written by Wyman Wong. After 21 years, women still long for love, but they're also much more confident and independent now: "Even if you can't meet the right person, you're still a good woman.
