Artist of the Week | YURI of SNSD (solo album)

If you are a fan of Girls’ Generation, then you are aware of the wave of solo albums that have been released by these ladies in the last few months (and couple of years). It’s really exciting listening to all their new music and seeing their promos for their solo debuts. However, my favorite one at the moment is Yuri’s. The First Scene is the debut album for Yuri and was released the first week of this month on October 4th so it is still relatively new.

The whole album is amazing but my favorite song on the whole album is “Ending Credit (To be continued).”

Artist of the Week | 효연 (Hyoyeon)

It’s been a while since the Artist of the Week was a kpop girl-group artist. I haven’t neglected them I’ve just been listening to so many different types of music that I almost forgot about mainstream artists.

So the spotlight for this week needs no introduction! You all know her for the top selling kpop girl group “Girls’ Generation (SNSD)”! She’s back with a solo comeback and so far she’s done really well on the charts!

If you haven’t heard her solo music before, check it out below!

Taeyeon | Upcoming Album Spotlight

So I said I wasn’t going to do Kpop Updates on here anymore because it just isn’t my passion to be a kpop blogger (but all the kpop updates will still be done regularly on twentythirdstation.tumblr.com if you’re looking for it!) However, I do still love talking about the music.

I was definitely going to reserve this for later but when I stumbled on YouTube earlier I saw all this promo for Taeyeon’s upcoming album. SM is really really pushing this with all the visuals and teasers. And after listening to it, I can see why. I truly enjoyed her solo debut and this album seems like it’s going to be the perfect follow-up. I won’t post all the teasers because there’s at least 12 of them, but check out the ones below!

Will you be listening?

Wednesday Kpop Update | Tiffany Solo Concert Sells Out + DIA Not Performing, 2016 Dream Concert + EXO Comeback Confirmed + New Music Videos

Ok so let me tell you! Today was so busy I had a hard time trying to decide what to talk about here! I couldn’t cover everything that I wanted to sooooo head over to twentythirdstation.tumblr.com for links and kpop updates that weren’t included here!

XIA was recently on a livestream through the Naver app talking about his latest album, “Xignature”. He was asked during the broadcast about his juniors that he actually likes and he gave the loaded answer of the year! He talked about BTOB and how they left a good impression on him but he also mentioned some other familiar names.

“Truthfully, there’s so many idols these days I don’t really know a lot of people personally. I might know their group’s name, but not individual names. If I had to choose, I would say the BEAST and INFINITE members. These days, it’s nice to see that idols really passionate about what they do, and how they can sing and dance really well. But of course, I’m closer to those I interact with and know personally. That’s why I am fond of BEAST and INFINITE.”

I like that answer!

SISTAR released their official comeback teaser and plans today. Pretty exciting way to start off June. This will be the 4th mini-album for SISTAR.

And not to be left out of the comeback celebrations, SONAMOO also officially announced their plans for a comeback through their official website. They released a coded message with their homepage changed to the color green with orbs circling their logo.

Hmmm…

“In June of 2016, colorful lights will brighten up one by one along with the Green Moon. Seven different colors will unite into one shining light”

Tiffany is making waves since her official solo release. After the release of I Just Wanna Dance, it was announced that she would be performing her first solo concert for a select time period in Korea. Well… the shows sold out!! And now, new shows have been officially added to accommodate the demand.

“…[Tiffany] solo concert will be the sixth in SM’s “The Agit” concert series. Tickets went on sale on May 19 and immediately sold out. Since many fans were unable to procure tickets, more concert dates have been added… Tickets for the additional concerts will go on sale June 7 at 8 p.m. KST through Yes24.”

If you’re in the area and want to go, you might want to head over to Yes24 and get your tickets ASAP!


In unfortunate news, DIA is pulling out of 2016 Dream Concert. Interestingly enough, Jung Chae Yeon will still perform… with IOI. Representatives released a statement explaining the decision.

“Jung Chae Yeon will only perform as an IOI member at the ‘Dream Concert’. DIA will not be performing. After a discussion, the members decided not to perform at ‘Dream Concert’, considering the difficulties Jung Chae Yeon will face [in performing with 2 groups].”

So while DIA decides instead to prepare for their comeback, Chae Yeon will perform with IOI. I guess this would be a little easier for her so she doesn’t have to overwork herself. And, IOI is only promoting for a year so might as well enjoy the ride now.


EXO pretty much “broke the internet” with the release of one photo.

And then more followed…

I don’t think anything else needs to be said here except, the official comeback date is June 9th! We are literally days away from this comeback.

I’m so beyond ready for this…
