Hello muffins. I am a wreck over here with Chooch’s impending departure approaching – I have been trying not to think about it but this morning when I was brushing my teeth I started crying really hard LOL shhh don’t tell him.
So I’m interluding a bit to drop some of my current favorite Kpop jams on here because I need a feel-good moment or ten.
- Aespa – Life’s Too Short
Did you know that Aespa is Henry’s current favorite girl group? Well, they are. Anyway, this is my lowkey anthem lately. Everything else sucks but inside my bubble, we’re keeping it light and fun. It is the only way I’m getting by.
2. Winner – I Luv U
WINNER IS BACK, BOY-O!!! I can stare dreamily into Jinu’s chocolate eyes again! This song just screams SUMMER PARTY to me. I love Winner so much! There is no one else like them. The high-pitched “YOU-oo” reminds me so much of a 1940s Disney cartoon. COMMENT IF YOU AGREE.
3. B.I. (feat.DeVita) – BTBT
I think it was during our Memorial Day weekend trip to Six Flags New England that this song came on a million times and I never tired of it ONCE. I desperately miss him being in IKON but I love that he’s thriving on his own (like Wonho!!!). Support this man.
(This is SUCH a summer night vibe.)
4. Kang Daniel & Jessi –
I mean, this has been THE YEAR for both K.Dan and Jessi so it only makes sense that they’d collab. (I originally just wanted to type a line of fire emojis for this one.)
5. Nayeon – Pop
OK finally JYP has given this Twice powerhouse a solo. THANK YOU, JYP. This is everything that made me fall in love with Kpop in the first place. Doesn’t this make you feel good?!
6. Hyolyn – Waka Boom
Literally my queen.
7. Sunmi – Heart Burn
Oh my fucking god the 60s aesthetic in this video and Sunmi’s signature breathy vocals and Pippi Longstocking-esque hair?! I’m screaming!! She’s touring this fall and it pains me to know that I am probably going to have to miss it else Kpop bankrupts me.
8. Junny (feat. ChungHa) – Color Me
The synth, the vocals, the visuals, the CHUNGHA CAMEO (she has a comeback soon too – all of my GODTIER female soloists are coming back almost all at once and I could just explode!).
9. Seventeen – Hot
I mean this is a summer no-brainer. (Also I have been saying this since like 2016 but I really think this is the year that I learn all of the members of Seventeen, lol. There are only 13, and I know all 23 of NCT so I got this, right?)
10. Treasure – Jikjin
OK this isn’t super new but it has been in my head all week and it gets me so hyped. I need to learn all of their names soon-ish too Not a single bad track from Treasure! That’s YG for you, though. Quality over quantity, lol ha ha …. ugh. (VIPs and BLINKS know the pain of stanning YG artists.)
OK there’s 10 songs for you to maybe find one or two that appeals to you! Who’s shocked that there is NO NCT here?!?! Only because they don’t have anything super new, lol.
