My Current K pop Playlist and Recent Comebacks

I have this habit of checking songs from new groups and groups that I’m familiar with but don’t exactly follow. If you visit the Youtube channel of 1theK and Stone music entertainment, you will see how many k pop artists are releasing music everyday.

These are the songs that are currently on my playlist.

1.Dumhdurum Apink

I’m starting to love this group especially with their new comeback. This song is a bop and I’m so happy that despite of new groups debuting, they still managed to get an award.

2. Come See Me  AOA

They’re one of my favorite girl groups that I forgot to mention in my top favorite k pop groups post. But I’m glad they are making waves again after their Queendom stunt.

3. I like you Day6

Day 6 is one of my favorite korean bands. I kinda regret that I wasn’t able to see them when they came in our country.

4. Congratulations Day6

Another great song from this band. I love playing this in Superstar JYP. Make sure to check out that cool game app.

5. Time of our life Day 6

6. Chocolate Changmin of TVXQ

I still can’t find where’s the chocolate in the music video but I guess it’s metaphor for desire. Changmin looks like a vampire who never ages and he looks gorgeous in this comeback.

7. Run away TXT

I’m not a huge fun of this group but this song is really addicting and I don’t agree that they’re overrated. I think they have what it takes to be popular like BTS.

8.  Memories Wh3n

I recently discovered this singer and I was blown away by his voice which reminded me a lot of Hongki. I’ll follow him from now on. Make sure to check him out. Please!

9. Boom  NCT Dream

I accidentally discovered this while listening to iKON. I’m not very familiar with this group and I only know one of their songs. Regular, in Korean, English and Chinese, so that’s three if you count this way.

And I was surprised to find out that they have a new song. I checked it and it was good.

10. Leave It  N Flying

This is a very catchy song and Jaehyun smiling while playing drums in the music video is so cute.

I’m happy for them as they have released an official lightstick.

So here’s my current playlist. I hope you’ll check them out and feel free to share your playlist too. I love checking new kpop songs.

Best K pop Albums

I’ll be honest.I skip some songs in some albums, even from my favorite artists. I guess it’s normal not to like all the songs in an album although I know that they’ve worked hard for every song. Anyway, I do have favorite K pop albums that I listen to without skipping as I love all the songs.

Ft Island’s Zapping 

Ft Island hardly releases a bad song and this album proves it. This is Ft Island’s latest album and their last before they started entering the army. This is also their first album without Jonghoon and their last one with Seunghyun, as he recently left from the group.

My favorite song from this album is No Regret.



trans01. Quit
02.  Hope Again
03. Day By Day
04. No Regret
05. Don’t Lose Yourself


This is iKON’s Third mini album and their first one without B.I. I highly recommend this album and all other iKON albums. You don’t have to be an iKONIC to appreciate their songs and their albums have great concepts and packaging ( Great for k pop album collector). I love all songs but my favorite has to be Flower.


trans01. Ah Yeah
02.  Dive
03. All the world
04. Holding on
05. Flower

Bolbbalgan4’s Red Diary Page 2

Bolbbalgan4 used to be a duo of talented singers until one member left recently. This album is the best playlist for road trips and during rainy nights. My favorite song from this album is Travel.



trans 01. Wind
02.  Travel
03. Starlight
04. Hey, Teddy Bear
05. Clip                                                                                                                                                       06.  Lonely                                                                                                                                               07. Travel (instrumental)

Cherry Bullet’s Love Adventure

This is Cherry Bullet’s second mini album and their last one with complete members. I really hope they will keep this kind of concept but judging from their recent comeback, I think they will lean more into girl crush now.

I love playing this album on my way to work.



01. Really, Really
02.  PingPong
03. Ruddy

Itzy’s IT’Z ICY

This is Itzy’s debut album and includes their debut song, Dalla Dalla. I love the concept of this album and the freebies are collector’s dream. Best album to play in a summer party, especially It’z Summer.



trans01. ICY
02.  Cherry
03. It’z Summer
04. Dalla Dalla
05. Want It

Shaun’s Take

This is Shaun’s first album. I tried looking for a physical one but I believe it only has a digital version. My favorite from this album is definitely Way Back Home but the rest of the songs are great too especially Nocturnal.


trans01. Way Back Home
02.  Thinking of You
03. Nocturnal
04. Arirang

Make sure to check these albums and feel free to share your favorite K pop albums too!

iKON’s Comeback and My Favourite Kpop Artists


I spent my day streaming iKON’s new comeback song.  Dive has an amazing lyrics and it perfectly describes how I feel about iKON. I wasn’t disappointed and I still believe it’s a great song even if a lot of so called fans tried to downplay the group’s effort because they were having a hard time accepting that their bias is no longer in the group. I started following iKON after Hanbin left and from what I see, most Ikonics are Hanbin supporters. I understand that it’s difficult to accept your bias’ departure from the group that you spent years supporting.  I had a hard time accepting when Taecyeon left from JYP entertainment, as I knew that it would affect his activities with 2PM and I didn’t think I could still support Infinite like before without Myungsoo. But at least, I’m not like other fans who demand the group to disband if they could no longer continue with complete members or mentioning their bias’ name in every video or post related to the group’s activities.

Being Ft island’s supporter showed me how to be a ‘true’ fan and how to fully support a group. Jonghoon used to be my bias and as much as I recognized his contribution to FT island, I’m not the type of fan who would turn a blind eye to her idol’s misconduct. I still love FT Island and all its members, and I’ll be waiting for their comeback even if my new bias Seunghyun also left the group.

Being a fan of a group means supporting the whole group and not an individual member.  It’s either you leave the fandom and support your bias’ individual activity or you support the group without your favourite member.

I find it unfair to the other members who are trying to save the group being treated by bitter fans as if they were no longer relevant when a popular member left. A real fan supports the group as a whole and would take time to get to know every individual member.

Moving on from iKON’s successful comeback, I decided to write a post about my favourite KPOP artists. Here is a list of my favourite Kpop groups and individual artists. I’m also into Gfriend and Apink at the moment. I’m still far from being called a fan but I like some of their songs. I love to hear suggestions too so feel free to comment your favourite songs and Kpop artists.

Amazing Kpop Songs From Disbanded Groups

I’ve only been a kpop fan for about five years and although most second generation kpop groups have not disbanded at that time, they were not active as before. I’ve witnessed the disbandment of my ultimate girl group 2ne1 and although it was a heartbreaking experience for a new fan like me as I didn’t get the chance to support them long enough, I knew it was inevitable and it’s not a reason to stop supporting kpop as a whole.

But there are groups that I’ve just discovered recently and I would have become a huge fan if  only I had the chance to listen to their songs before they disbanded. I wanted to ask myself what was I doing all those times? Where was my kpop guardian angel to guide me?

Anyway, I made a list of my top 5 favorite songs from disbanded groups to commemorate the legacy they have left.
