YG finally let Blackpink out of the basement and it’s glorious.
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.
Terribly late and I’m terribly sorry, but EXID’s latest release had to be reviewed.
Beloved DJ and musician Steve Aoki and BTS teamed up remix the best b-side on BTS’s latest mini album, as well as American rapper Desiigner and it’s awesome.
Red Velvet are back with “Peek-A-Boo” which is a great way to top their already good year.
