죽겠다(KILLING ME) by iKon

I think my music taste has slightly changed after listening to all that brass in Monotree’s  (ONF’s song producer) songs the past month. LOL. I mean, this MV looks great and the song sounds typical YG but for some reason, I’m not that into it. I don’t know. I prefer the reggae vibe of Love Scenario. This makes me miss GD though. Am I becoming too soft?

 I guess a part of me is still bitter about YG not debuting Mix Nine Top Nine too.

 

Mix Nine ‘Just Dance’ Evaluation Videos Released

 

‘Just Dance’ evaluation videos got leaked tonight! 💕 They’re teasing us stans. 😢 I miss the Top 9. Their debut has long been delayed. It could also be because the different groups are busy with individual schedules that they haven’t gotten together again yet. Please don’t make us wait too long. Calling out YG!😮

Edit 5/30/2018:
YG has blocked the content from Youtube but I found copies here.

Mix Nine Final 9

I’m quite satisfied with the final 9 from Mix Nine. Although two of my personal picks didn’t make it, I think prince Rubin and resident maknae Minseok are assets to the group. They now have a total of 3 rappers, 3 vocals and 3 dancers. All are visuals and adaptable to any type of performance, may it be swag, aegyo, funky or sexy. The personality mix also seems interesting. With a self-entitled prince, a baby, the stable trinity, a brat with swag, a cat with a jitterbug, and a couple of shy, quiet rappers, there will be no dull moment. Everyday will be a social media feast.

On a special note, Jinyoung and Byeonggon have this subtle, natural swag. I thank YG for bringing that out and producing music that really fits these two. I can’t think of any other agency that can do that.

With that said, I’m super excited for their official debut in April!

Bobby releases Love And Fall Album

Bobby released his first solo album entitled Love and Fall earlier today.

オトコだ! Sangnamja! The way he sings and moves is so manly. Given that he won the third season of Show Me The Money means his rap is legit and that makes him a whole lot cooler in my book.

The whole album is really good! All the songs have a catchy hook. As expected of YG, they’re doing an excellent job producing trendy music. My favorites are Runaway and Firework.

The MV for 사랑해 (I LOVE YOU) is okay too except that I’m not a fan of showing too much skin so it’s not something I want to replay over and over. Well, that’s just me.

Oh, and dope camera work in the MVs by the way.
