Here to continue with my obsessive listing, I bring you #50 through #21 on my list of favorite songs of the year! We’re going to wrap the lists this week. So without further ado, here they are accompanied by short anecdotes on each track
50. Don’t Spray Perfume – Teen Top:
The lyrics are sexy and forbidding, the music is fun and bright, and the vocals are quite mature.
49. They Are Coming – Wheesung:
His last song before the military carries bittersweet undertones; He is a fantastic singer and lyricist.
48. One Last Cry – N-Train:
The new 4Men? Maybe. This song does well to showcase their very strong vocals. The music is sweet too.
So this post was originally the WTF of the Week, but I think Heart2Heart’s MV topped this is in ridiculousiosity.

Here’s a line up of the artists have/are coming back this fall. Continue reading
Two nights ago, the Video Music Awards were held in Los Angeles with lots of music guests and tons of performances including tributes to Amy Winehouse and Britney Spears. I love award shows and we’ll be covering some of my favorites later in the year (Next up will be the Emmy Awards! Yay TV shows). Anyway, I’d love to imagine a Korean version of the Video Music Awards considering K-pop has better music videos nowadays. Although the year isn’t over, I’d like to make a list of the videos that were released between January and August.
We’ll be doing this weekly segment, where we discuss and analyze performances from various dramas in the past and present, every Fridays.
Nowadays, there are many idols who moonlight as an actor on dramas or movies. Sometimes, these transitions are more than welcome (hello T.O.P.) and other times, I wished they had stuck to being musicians. One of the most successful transitions (in terms of sheer increase in popularity) is Kim Hyun Joong, whose debut in Boys over Flowers swooned girls all over the world.
