YG finally let Blackpink out of the basement and it’s glorious.
Loona’s new unit, yyxy, releases “love4eva” and it’s wonderful.
There’s been aaaaaallllooooottt of releases and I haven’t covered them, so you know the drill, time for the roundup!
The Queen of K-pop returned with new releases! As an avid BoA fan, I’m always up for more. She ended 2017 with a jazzy swing-pop number that I enjoyed; and now she’s back in Korea for an official comeback. As far as BoA releases go, they stand on their own.
Momoland unfortunately was one of those nugu groups that I didn’t get a chance to keep up with during the hell that was my life in 2017. The first release wasn’t my favorite but they’ve started off the new year with a new song, so all’s well that *starts* well.
2017 had a lot of good songs, so much so that making this list was frustrating. I first made a giant list of songs I liked, color coordinated them to which songs that I really liked. I’m usually able to narrow that list down by 20 or 15, but no, this time I ended up way over that, so I had to narrow the list down again until finally I was content with just putting up 30. So here are the 30 promotional tracks that I couldn’t say no to.
Side note, although the list is giant (to me), I actually didn’t get a chance to check out a lot of K-pop this year due to health and other reasons. So barely any nugus made this list.
In July I ranked Day6’s beginning of the year releases (June-July), so now that it’s December I’m going to do the other half. I won’t rank them until the end though.
