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.

iKON’s i DECIDE

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

iKON’s Comeback and My Favourite Kpop Artists

ikon

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.
