My music world got turned upside down because of Seventeen. They’re all I listened to, but also Kpop and Arctic Monkeys. I wouldn’t have it any other way; they’re what brings me joy.
Here are the albums I listened to. (It is in order of when I listened to them, and the links go to Spotify.)
|NEWJEANS | New Jeans
NewJeans 뉴진스 is a South Korean girl group formed by ADOR, a subsidiary of Hybe Corporation, in 2022. They debuted with a self-titled extended play called New Jeans.
One of the best new girl groups.
Their songs are so refreshing, and every member are so talented. They’re the only new girl group in recent years that I listen to every song of their EP. If I listen to all the songs and continue to, they are an absolute bias.
(Ditto and OMG aren’t on this album, but I’m lumping it here because I listened to it along with their debut album.)
|EPIK HIGH | Strawberry
Epik High (Hangul: 에픽하이) is a South Korean alternative hip hop group from Seoul, composed of Tablo, Mithra Jin, and DJ Tukutz. Strawberry is the third EP from Epik High.
Of course Epik High continues to be on my yearly music post. And yet again, they released a new album—albeit a mini one—and it’s great, but oh too short!!
I do admit this album is lacking a bit, but I never say no to any music from them.
