UnchartedThoughts

A blogful of mostly Fan-Girl-ing on books, films, k-dramas, and k-pop with a very little touch of something other be it personal or what have you. 40% is k-pop of mostly EXO, 35% are books, 10% are k-dramas, another 10% are films and 5% are of something other.

Likes many things. Reblogs once in a blue moon. And writes and creates own posts except if stated otherwise.

Have a blessed and happy day! Ciao! ^^

It is either cats or those stuff. #cats #cat #feline

I saw this picture of #sehun and #tangwei from #thecelebrity magazine. And it was only featured as a BTS photo when it can actually deserve a page.

I’m actually done with my school works. Alhamdulillah! Thesis and what not, I’m so over them. And you know what? I feel like everything has been too easy for me.Looking back, this whole thing all seems to be not challenging at all.

Some big stuff did occur but now that they have passed, they now seem nothing.

I guess my optimism is just high. Alhamdulillah!

[Review] The Fierce Comebacks (Part 2)

Read full list here.

2014 is indeed a busy year for the K-Pop industry. The first half of the year was full of fierce returns of the famous of the famous in the music scene. And the second half even got more intense with more of your favourites one by one appearing with their teasers. Here are some short reviews of some of the releases of this year’s second half.

“Ooh Ooh” by Eric Nam ft. Infinite’s Hoya

Eric Nam is back with his second record, Ooh Ooh featuring Hoya of Infinite. And I must say that this is a totally different concept from him compare to the romantic boy-next-door image he had in Heaven’s Door. This one I guess shows the quirky and fun side of the Eric Nam that we usually get to see in MBC’s Section TV and Arirang’s After School Club. And I don’t know whether this is true or not because I’m not really acquainted with Eric (hello international fan) in real life but this image that we have of him in this latest music production I surmise is closer to his personality in real life. So, it has this feel of authenticity. Music-wise though, I like Heaven’s Door better. But in terms of MV concept and the over-all production, I prefer Ooh Ooh.

P.S. I think Eric Nam is one those singers in K-Pop who is loved by fans not mostly because of his music but because of his personality. I hope I’m wrong with this conjecture though.

Supportive Tao to Sehun and Kai’s reaction to it.

“Good Luck” & “No More” by B2ST/Beast

Beast is one those first K-Pop Acts I’ve come to like during my first stages in the K-Pop fandom. I remember that they don’t do sensual MV concept. So, I was shocked with that particular scene with Song Dongwon in Good Luck. Though, I know that I should not be surprised since they’re from Cube Entertainment, the K-Pop company where sensuality is the trend of their artists. But still, it kind of disgusted me a bit. As you might have already know, I’m not really a big fan of the sexy concept. Music-wise though, I enjoy Good Luck. But between Good Luck and No More, I prefer the latter. Because I already have a sting of dislike with Good Luck due to the MV, I think myself naturally went for No More. But in my honest opinion, I think many would agree that the MV concept for No More was way better than Good Luck. Although many would perhaps prefer the genre of Good Luck because it’s more alive, I’m still more inclined to No More. As I was listening to it, I did find it catchier than Good Luck. I especially like Gi Kwang’s part in the refrain of the song. Lee Gi Kwang, naega neo-reul ajikdo saranghae.

“Mr. Chu” by A-Pink

I didn’t like the song on the get go because I was distracted by how aegyo-ish the MV is. But I’d rather have the aegyo than the sekshi concept. At least, it is safer to the eyes and okay for kids. However, this MV is too “pa-cute” for my taste that it actually makes me cringe on a negative note. The plot of the video to me looks like a bunch of girls stalking on an unseen man 24/7 and 31 days of the month. Really, it’s creepy and kind of stupid even when they do it with all the aegyo. I mean, why would you kiss a tennis ball? It’s dirty. On a positive light thought, I do like the floral pink costume they had in some part of the video. And I think the song is very catchy even with their mispronunciation of “falling” to “peolling.”

“Last Romeo” & “Back” by Infinite

Between Last Romeo and Back, I favour the former better. It’s the signature product you get from Infinite. And I adore it. It’s as catchy as The Chaser. Although the MV is just mostly a dance video with a little story in between, I still dig this production from Infinite. Just like B1A4 and now with Infinite, I think K-Pop acts should just do the craft where they’re best at. In this case, Infinite is with the likes of Last Romeo.

About the MV, since I like books, I tend to appreciate anything that has do with them. So, I like that chasing game in the library with Woohyun even though I don’t think that the library setting has anything to do with the song at all.

Anyway, unlike Last Romeo, I’m not so much captured with Back. It’s more ballad-y and as you might have already figured out, if it’s from Infinite, I like them better with strong performances. Though the MV for Back is pretty much dramatic, the kind that I would like, I still root for Last Romeo because the song is more appealing to me. Plus, honestly I don’t understand why the female cameo in Back has to be a little girl. But creativity-wise, I think Back’s MV is more imaginative and interesting.

P.S. Infinite is that group where I tend to like almost all of the members.

 “Fantastic” by Henry

Honestly, I’m not a fan of Henry. But I should say that I admire him as an artist because he’s really talented. Not only capable in singing and dancing but he’s also adept in playing instruments and producing music. I could say that I like him the way I like Taylor Swift. I like his songs but he’s not the type I would follow in every program that he’s on. I’m not saying I don’t like him personality-wise. In fact I adore the charm of his persona, he’s similar to Eric Nam. It’s just that his pull on me is not that strong. But I honestly want him to do big in Korea and in the K-Pop scene as a whole even if I’m not one of his loyal supporters because I know he deserves it.

Anyway, moving on with the subject of this matter, Fantastic, I’m happy to say that Henry didn’t disappoint. I’ve read somewhere that he personally did a lot of work on this album all together. So, congratulations for a job well done. I hope he gains good feedback for this comeback. Music-wise, I enjoy Fantastic. While in terms of the music video, although I’m not so much ecstatic about it because it’s the usual SM box concept, I do appreciate some part of it like the computer-game-vibes it spews during those violin scenes. Hence, all in all, I give Henry’s Fantastic 5 stars out of 5.
