While I was gone I was listening to some songs by a lot of different artists. I wanted to expand my horizon beyond groups and get back to listening to solo artists.
And low and behold I find BIBI (비비). I have never heard of the show “The Fan” but I found out she was a contestant on that show and honestly, she’s so great! I loved her rendition of Peek-A-Boo by Red Velvet. She has this unique sound that’s like a pop mix with contemporary. And it fits her so well.
If you haven’t heard her new song, “(비누) BINU” check it out below!
If you are a fan of Girls Generation (SNSD), you may remember this singer I’m highlighting today. That’s right ladies and gents! Tiffany Young has officially debuted as a solo artist in… America!! I have listened to her new EP on repeat since it came out! It’s definitely a really solid first exposure. If you haven’t heard it yet, it’s completely in English. I’m so proud of her for being brave and coming back to America to create her own individual sound. I love “Born Again”, “Runaway” and “Not Barbie”.
With her contract over with SM Entertainment, many people were heavily speculating about what would be next for her. Well, I think the mini-documentary may answer those questions.
If you haven’t heard her debut EP “Lips on Lips”, check it out below!
Maybe you’re not all that interested in studying math in Korean but if you’re fully immersing yourself in the language and may be considering moving to Korea and potentially teaching there, this video may be useful for you.
I found this while I was searching for videos to listen to while I work and I ran across this series from the channel KoreanBabo with Jemma. I don’t know if she still posts videos because the lasts few I saw were from a year ago. But she has a lot of useful information on her channel! So for all my YouTube followers, this will probably be a good channel to check out.
The video is 100% in Korean with English subtitles and it’s really short and easy to follow.
With the merge of Million Market and SM entertainment, we’re going to see a lot of new artists popping up from SM that don’t have the familiar sound that a lot of kpop fans are used to. However, if you aren’t new to the Korean hip-hop/urban sound, you’ll be really excited about this. (As I am!!)
In October I shared a post about MOON and this week I’m sharing Jiselle 지젤. Just like MOON, Jiselle is an artist that was signed to Million Market and is now under the SM umbrella. I’m so excited that not only are they maintaining their sound but they’re also introducing these artists to a broader audience.
