Way DID NOT push SNSD’s Sunny. Watch the video and look at Ellin’s hand, she’s been trying to grab Way’s hand, then when they finally hold hands SNSD members moved forward, then Wayllin raised their hands. It looked liked Way’s hand got touch Sunny’s back, but the other brown part is no longer Way’s ahnd, that’s Ellin’s hands. They were holding hands, Way did not touch Sunny or any of the SNSD members. 

And Sunny is smiling happily. No reaction at all about her “being pushed”.

Top 10 Kpop Releases you might have missed this year (but shouldn’t)

Part 1

5. Nine Muses

In the past, Nine Muses were known for their shaky debut, lineup changes and the inevitable comparisons with SNSD.  This year they received attention for the right reasons thanks to their EP “Wild”.  The title track is a non stop ride of pure sex, driving synth over sensual verses and energetic rap breaks that are pulled together into a well produced package, unlike so many other kpop songs this year.  

Must listen: Wild

4. Davichi

Pop-ballad duo Davichi had perhaps their strongest year yet in 2013. On the 3 singles Turtle, Because I Miss You Today and The Letter, Davichi showcases their mastery of the catchy yet gripping kpop ballad featuring the best voice in kpop in Lee Haeri.  Given that all 3 tracks hit #1 on the digital charts it’s questionable whether Davichi belongs on this list, but their lack of promotion means many kpop fans might not have heard these songs yet!

Must listen: Turtle (거북이), Because I Miss You Today (오늘따라 보고싶어서 그래), The Letter (편지)

3. 2YOON

While 4minute’s subunit of vocalists Jiyoon and Gayoon gained attention for their “country inspired” single 24/7, the rest of this mini album is not at all ‘country’, and instead features some extremely solid kpop.  The second track “Nightmare” is possibly my favourite song of the year.  The verses and main chorus evoke a dreamy feel, contrasting with the driving, yearning vocals in the pre-chorus and BtoB Ilhoon’s aggressive rap break.  The song is also one of the rare instances of well written lyrics in a kpop song, creating a package that leaves you wanting more. 

Must listen: 24/7. Nightmare (악몽), 쎄쎄쎄

2. Younha

image

Younha’s EP “Just Listen” was a highlight of Korean pop music in 2013.  Each track is a considered and unique production.  The title track combines strong percussion and melody with reggae inspired vocals.  On “Fireworks” Younha revisits the rock style seen on previous releases but in a calmer and more sophisticated fashion.  “The Real Reason Why We Broke Up” opens like yet-another-accoustic kpop ballad, but transitions and builds to something more memorable.  There’s also a dose of fun pop on “One Fine Day”, and straight ballads showcasing Younha’s vocals on 아니야 and 봄은 있었다.

Must listen: Just Listen, Fireworks, The Real Reason We Broke Up, One Fine Day

1. Jay Park

image

Kpop fans seem to either love or hate Jay Park.  For me, he produced the kpop song of the year in 2013.  “JOAH” is an infectiously catchy feel-good r&b-pop song, said to be inspired by the Jackson 5.  The song is everything you want from a light hearted pop track; cute lyrics, a fun chorus and a melody that leaves you feeling happy and wanting to listen again and again. Jay Park’s second mini album this year was also solid, with the dance track I Like 2 Party and r&b ballad Secret worth revisiting.

 Must listen: JOAH, I Like 2 Party, Secret, TRILL
