It feels like there’s so much going on in the world of K-Pop right now, it’s almost impossible for me to keep up with it all! Everywhere I look, there’s a new bunch of teaser photos to swoon over or a new MV to squeal my way though and the fact that I’ve been buried under a mountain of plushie orders only makes things harder as every time I come up for air, I almost immediately fall over because some group has just taken my breath away.
Just in the past couple of days, Block B, DAY6, SF9, Cross Gene, and Jung Joon Young have all made comebacks and OH MY GIDDY FLIPPING AUNT! THE TEARS! I HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO STOP THEM FOR DAYS! And how could I? I mean, Block B’s “Yesterday” is enough on its own to make my little BBC heart race like a bee on a sugar high. Everything about this song and its video is so perfectly Block B; I can’t help but cry!
Just look at the colors! And the cuteness! And the crazy! AND THOSE VOCALS!!! DEAR SWEET BABY FLYING MONKEYS! THE VOCALS! *swoon* This song highlights everything I love about Block B and I’m just so in love with it, all I can do is sit here and sob buckets and buckets of happy fangirl tears!
But Block B isn’t the only group making my cry rivers of endless tears. Oh no! DAY6 had to go and release “예뻤어,” a beautiful new addition to what I’ve dubbed, their Year of Musical Perfection, and AUUUUGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH!
WHY BOYS!?! WHY!?! WHY YOU WANNA MAKE ME CRY LIKE THIS!?! I can’t tell if my tears are from joy at this new release or if I’m crying because my heart has just been ripped in two! Either way, I just can’t *sniff* stop *sniffle* crying. *melts down completely*
Because I seem to be incapable of stopping myself from indulging in things that will ultimately hurt me, I had to go and give Jung Joon Young’s new track, “Me and You,” a listen… Yeah… I know… But… But… I just couldn’t help myself! The pairing of Jung Joon Young and Jang Hye Jin is just… It’s so… I… Oh, just listen to it!
As much as I love the gritty rock ‘n roll side of Jung Joon Young, it’s his ballads that really rip my heart out. There’s something about the emotion he puts into his music, it shines so well when he’s pouring his heart out in a ballad. It’s magic, really, and it always gives me chills, even as tears are streaming down my face.
Speaking of tears and having my heart ripped out… WHAT THE HECK CROSS GENE!?! Why you gotta mess with me like this!?! I’ve been looking forward to the release of “Black of White” for what feels like ages and now that it’s here, I can barely bring myself to watch the video!
It’s not that I don’t like the song, because I do! But why do I have to watch my boys die such gruesome, bloody deaths??? I get the metaphorical struggle and all but GOOD GRIEF! I DON’T WANT MY BOYS TO DIE, even if they do come back in the end! That being said, I very much like the song itself. I’m just really, REALLY hoping they release a dance practice or performance version of this track soon.
At least I can say SF9’s “Roar” has me sobbing all the happy tears! *SQUEE!* I know I don’t really need a new group to add to my bias list but I SWEAR! Every time SF9 releases a new track, I fall that much harder for them. It’s almost sad really, my inability to resist any group that just so happens to make me smile, but I can’t seem to help myself!
Of course it doesn’t help any that Zuho’s rapping makes my knees wobble or that the choreo for this new track makes me wanna cry… UGH! I AM SO HOPELESS! Just look at me! I’ve spent this entire post sobbing over everything that’s already been released and I haven’t even started on all the teasing that’s currently making my heart stop and my breath catch! (I’m lookin’ at you, BTS!)
Yeah know, I was gonna wrap things up here, but since I already brought up BTS, I feel like I kinda have to say something about their current teasing because OH SWEET POTATOES AND KIMCHI! These boys get more lethal with every flipping comeback! At this rate I’m gonna be a truly dead zombie before I even get to hear the new album! Which, now that I think about it, probably isn’t such a bad thing. At least then I won’t have to die listening to whatever this new version of “Lie” is gonna be, for the ten gazillionth time. *sobs* Dang it, Jimin! I’m still not over the original version yet! At least I can take some small comfort in knowing I’m not gonna be the only dead ARMY out there, once this new album drops. Will I?
Okay, now I really do need to stop. I know I should be talking about all the other teasing but I missed out on last week’s post, due to life being rather life-ish, so I guess I’m making up for it today. At least now that I’ve got all of these repressed fangirl squeals out of my system, I can focus my attention on everything that’s headed our way in the near future. Oh, isn’t the life of a K-Pop fan grand!?!
