The one and only Wax (왁스) returns with her new project album “Spark(스파크)”: Unni, you are one amazing woman!

2014-10-06 23_09_14-Greenshot

From “Half Love, Left Hidden”

What’s up everyone, Hyunnie here! I am finally back from a very lengthy hiatus! As I have explained in my previous post, I’ve been busy trying to finish off a couple of assessments (major essays for example), fighting off a bad case of the flu, and also been trying to cope with my first days of practical at a high school! So, August & September have just been such a hectic time period for me, and I do apologise for disappearing for so long! I’ll try and get back into the routine again, but I have to admi, that is certainly easier said than done!

Today’s post is about Wax unni’s newest album “Spark”, which was released on the 26th August. I have been a huge fan of Wax ever since I discovered her song Coin Laundry (사랑한 적도 없는) at the beginning of the year (“Coin Laundry” is still a song that I love and play all the time!) so when I heard that she was releasing a new album, I literally freaked out and jumped up and down for about 10 minutes straight! The sad thing about this, is that I feel that she is so underrated, despite her being in the business for almost 15 years. Therefore, I hope that this post will bring more awareness about her, and encourage you all to go and check her out; she is amazing! If you want to read more about her, here is a nice post written by Soompi about her background and some of her greatest hits.

Alright, enough chit-chat and let’s get started with this review!

Wax(왁스)’s comeback track Coin Laundry (사랑한 적도 없는) is by far the best thing I’ve seen and heard all year, literally

Hey everyone and I am back once again to share with you what I’m finding this week in the lovely world of Kpop!

This week, while scrolling through my endless content-filled Youtube subscription list, I came across the video linked below. Without much knowledge about the singer, I chose to watch the video since I recognised the actor in the MV, Daniel Choi.

And boy, was I not ready for what I was about to discover!

EXO FINALLY FINALLY RELEASES MIRACLES OF DECEMBER…MVs. Yep, just the MVs…WHERE’S THE ALBUMS GODDAMMIT?!

An amazing song, in both Chinese and Korean *tear drop*

An amazing song, in both Chinese and Korean *tear drop*

I am literally melting here.

I’m probably suffering from post-traumatic fangirl syndrome or something; I don’t know.

The only thing I am well aware of is the fact that I have to still wait another 4 more days for the rest of the album to be released, which to this woman here *points at herself* sounds like a death sentence!

*Intake deep breath*…Now, let us begin…

30 day Kpop Challenge – Day 6: hmmm does this actually count?? Oops…

Day 6: Your favourite k-pop song from your favourite girl group 

Hello chubby bunnies! (I know, how cheesy~)

So, for my favourite song from f(x)…I do realise that it’s kind-of cheating because there are only 3 members involved in the song, and it also is in collaboration with another singer from another group. But, it still counts, right?

Kyuhyun’s New Single – 사랑 먼지(Love Dust)

Hey guys! Just wanted to share with you one of the newest tracks that I have downloaded: 사랑 먼지 (Love Dust) by Kyuhyun from Super Junior.

AND IT IS AMAZING!!! It is the usual ballad style of song that just compliments Kyuhyun’s voice. It is such a huge contrast from his recent variety-show image that I sometimes forget that he is a singer too (not to mention a very talented singer at that :D)

Everyone has to CHECK THIS OUT! It is so beautiful. It reminds me so much of the songs he used to sing on “Immortal Song”. Gentle yet powerful.
