K-pop: Kpop Monthly Upd8 of August [PHOTO/GIF HEAVY]7:41 AM
Hey guys~ How are you? This is August's Kpop Monthly Upd8!
Welp, here are the 8 kpop music videos that have stood out to me the most this month (in no particular order)!!!
1) Danger by BTS (aka Bangtan Boys)
Okay, so I think everyone has a place in their heart for BTS. I actually love this song way more than I expected!
I adore the song and even more so the english translation/meaning. Honestly, I can totally relate to the lyrics!
And of course, BTS's dances never fail to disappoint me.
Well, I'll keep this short & make sure to check out the music video above and the pictures below~2) Allusion by BEATWIN
I'm not sure if you guys have heard of BEATWIN before or not! Their debut MV was called She's My Girl, and I totally fell in love with it.
I'm sorry to say that I honestly didn't like this song as much as their debut song, but it was good nonetheless. It's beginning to grow on me lol
I think their dance is rather generic, but oh well lol I still love them!
/Sorry for the lack of pictures due to them being a bit less popular because they're still such a new group/
Make sure to check out the MV above <3
3) Headache by HIGH4
Just because they're new, it doesn't mean their music will be any bad. I actually like this song, but I think my main complaint is the dubstep breakdown in the middle of the song :/ I need the kpop song writers to understand that dubstep does NOT BY ANY MEANS make a song "cooler" or "better". K-pop songs can be amazing with out dubstep <3 lol
I still think that this song and music video are adorable though~ It was extremely cute & colorful!
Please check out the pics below & the MV above! <3
Oh dear, I'm sure that all of you who are closer followers of kpop know of WINNER! I absolutely adore them <3
I really love how although this is more of a slower, melancholy song, it still have a nice beat to it. I am adoring the smooth falsettos in this song that juxtapose the edgy raps. It is too beautiful.
These boys are actually pretty good actors in my opinion, I feel like I could really feel the emotion in their acting! Although not much was happening in the MV, I think that the emotion of the acting & the song make up for that!
Please check out the pics below & the MV above~
Firstly, the song is DROP DEAD AMAZING. From the second the beat dropped in the beginning on the MV, I was in love! I absolutely love love love the chorus & the adorable dance!
The quirky music video concept was also great. I loved how silly & comical it was~ Their acting was so cuuuute! I love how light hearted this music video was <3
I think my only complaint would be Shindong's line "Just close your lips, shut your tongue" LOOOOL WHO THE HELL WROTE THAT LINE, DEAR GOD LOL
I am so in love with this music video, song, & dance nonetheless!
Please please please do yourself a favor and WATCH SUPER JUNIOR'S MV ABOVE! You will LOVE it <3
6) Stress Come On! by Big Byung
I think that this MV is the wild card on the list!
Just some clarification for those of you who do not know, these boys are NOT real k-pop group & this is not a serious music video. This is rather a collab project involving Got7's Jackson, BTOB's Sung Jae, and Vixx's N and Hyuk.
I featured this song because I love the groups Got7, BTOB, & Vixx and was so happy that I got the chance to see them collab with each other in this adorable, quirky music video.
This music video is not serious at all; it's basically just them ranting about things that stress guys out lol
Check out the silly MV above!7) I Swear by Sistar
I really love the 'young and free' feel of this song~ I am such a sucker for songs about having a guy you like <3
I love how simple this MV was. They look like they were having so much fun~ It makes me wanna go out on vacation again lol My favorite seen is when they're in that grocery store lol
Check out the fun MV above~
8) Love Toxic by Royal Pirates
The Royal Pirates <3 Each of the members have a special place in my heart. I think what really draws me to them is all the of the members' ability to speak English fluently! I makes me so happy~
I adore the chill, cool vibes of all of their songs and this MV/song is no exception. When I first heard this song I knew it was love! Even moreso when I saw the English lyrics!
Now, I'm not personally a fan of their regular MV with all of the clubbing girls, so if you agree with me, they also have a regular "Performance Version" where they are just playing their instruments in the MV. I like that MV version better because they (Moon, Sooyoon, & James) get more face time <3
So that's pretty much it for the K-pop Monthly Upd8 of August! I hope you guys enjoyed all of the pics, gifs, and music videos!
Let know which MV stood out the most to YOU in August! I think the one that stood out most to me was definitely Super Junior's Mamacita <3
Thanks for reading & until next time,
