Since I’m back in school, I spend a lot of time listening to music again to help me study. One of my favorite genres undergrad was indie. (In some ways it still is…) I’m going to be honest though, 10 cm was not a band I thought I’d ever really like. I heard one song and was just like “meh” and then I took the time one rainy day to listen to a few more songs and now… I’m completely a fan!
10 cm began as a duo originally comprised of Kwon Jung-yeol and Yoon Cheol-jong. But I read somewhere that Yoon Cheol-jong left this year and so now only Kwon Jung-yeol remains.
If you haven’t heard of 10 cm before, check out the sample artist playlist below!
**Quick note: Not really sure how I managed to do this but I currently have two soundcloud accounts so if you see a Twenty Third Station with just one playlist on it, which should only be 10 cm Artist of the Week playlist, that’s me as well. It’s not my official account so please don’t follow it as I won’t be updating it.**
As someone who has been listening to kpop for years (knowingly and unknowingly), I was wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy too excited about this comeback. Or maybe, I expressed the right amount of excitement. Lee Hyori is one of those artists that I hope will continue to make music for as long as possible. If you’ve never heard of her before today is your introduction!
Most international kpop fans haven’t really heard of her and for the ones who have they know what a legend she is. I even saw on youtube someone say that she invented “idol culture” and I have to say I definitely agree. She’s been in her own kpop group Fin.K.L before making her solo debut. She’s hosted tv shows and was an actress as well before going on hiatus in 2015. She disappeared from social media and television for a while.
And now… she’s back!
I love her new music. I’m such a huge fan of her sound! If you haven’t heard her new songs yet I do truly advise you to check it out below! (And some of her older songs too!)
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!
Every now and then I’ll stumble across a new artist on YouTube. Sometimes, these artists aren’t necessarily new but they’re new to me and probably will be to a lot of you as well.
Enter in the new Artist of the Week… X.Q!
I can’t really find much on him except that he is signed to Prima Music Group and has been active since 2010. (Guess I can’t really call him new…)
If you haven’t heard about him before, check out his music below!
