East Asian pop update Nov 2017 - Feb 2018

It haven't been sustainable for a long while to do individual reviews for a long time now, but I still want to share some of the stuff I find good so here's a general update of what has passed the last few months, the best or the funniest.



  • Momoland - BBoom BBoom (뿜뿜). Maybe THE kpop hit of 2018, and the definite break through for the girls. For sure a viral hit with its dance moves and refrain, but with an catchiness that lasts.

  • OLNL (오르내림) - Kokiriko (코끼리코). He has a distinct style that is very and unexpectedly likable
  • Gugudan - The Boots  After the decidedly weird (but great!) Chococo comes this more classic take on kpop.
Trot, ie old style korean music:
  • Hong Jinyoung (홍진영) - Good Bye (잘가라). Miss Hong is back with another great video.
  • Yoyomi (요요미) - Who's that guy (이 오빠 뭐야). A debutante. 

  • BoA - Jazzclub  AND she releases great videos in Japan at the same time!
  • Wednesday Campanella - Gala. Why the japanese make THE BEST commercials...
  • Sakanaction - Midnight Daydream. This is a cooperation with two fashion magazines to showcase a collection. It is in truth like a musical sweet daydream perfectly suitable to the sound of Sakanaction.

  • Namewee ft. Meu Ninomiya - Tokyo Bon 2020 / Makudonarudo The Malaysian comic/musician is back with another catchy song.
  • Dragon Pig - All About You  This kind of laid back (and non-cringy) R&B is actually rather unusual in the Mandarin music sphere.
