^^^^^ Speaking of Kana Nishino, until now I was totally unaware of the ONE LITTLE TRICK to watch videos not viewable in my country...

And if you "totally already knew" this, then eff you very much for sharing it with the rest of us. XD :-P :flowers:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qcatBrnTuuI can't be watched in the USA. See:



Now it can: https://www.youpak.com/watch?v=qcatBrnTuuI

That's the trick. Replace "youtube" with "youpak". That's it.

WJSN - "I Wish"

I like it. It's not on "Secret"'s level but it's really cute like some J-idol song. Yeonjung shines so much in here.

NCT 127 - "LIMITLESS"

Based on the previews, I was expecting to hate this. :mikihead: Turns out, I do like it. Way better than "Firetruck".
NCT DREAM is still my favorite unit. :fear:

rikkikow, I don't know if you're on the J-MELO mailing list, but...

Dear viewers,

We always appreciate your support of J-MELO!
The J-MELO closing theme for April to July 2017 will be performed by WEDNESDAY CAMPANELLA. They want to put your thoughts into their song, so please send in lots of ideas!

1. Imagine you see someone you think is special and you want to ask them out on a date. What words would you use in your native language?
Be sure to tell us in English what the words mean and how they are used.

2. Tell us in English something that people around you think is scary.

All the best,
The J-MELO Team

That's the second Kpop release (that I've noticed) so far this year that feels like it was more inspired by Japanese idols. This time even in elements of the dance. Interesting.

I like it. And the concept's a nice contrast to all the cute/sexy ones girl groups usually get. :lol:

^ Yeah that definitely made me think of BoA even before I read your comment.

I was randomly YT'ing and came across this oldie:

Hyuna ruined my babies CLC. :crying:
(Just Kidding. I like the song. XD)

Being real tho, I guess after experimenting so goddam much, Cube was like "we aren't ready to create a unit, might as well make CLC into 4minute 2.0" and made Hyuna in charge of this release. This concept might be working on then because they are getting more attention (if we ignore the title), but damn... it's a total 360° from when I started following them back when High Heels was out.
I'm not a fan of 4minute but I do like the CLC girls, so if they do continue this road, I won't complain by then. :fear:

Dream catcher is Happy Face?? I keep trying to see if I recognize any of the girls from PD101, but I don't think I do lol. If she's not in there, did she leave the company already? She had that huge arc in PD101 being challenged to write a rap, and got huge sympathy points lol so idk why they wouldn't include one of their more well known trainees. I agree with N-K though, the release feels very Jpop. I like it though! It's very fresh as far as Kpop releases go.

On CLC: I mean, I like HobGoblin (or is it just Goblin?? Idk). But it most definitely is not a sound that is their own. They even have one member rapping in HyunA's style too. Which is weird, until I read that apparently HyunA had a lot to do with this release, from coaching the girls on how to sing certain parts, to their styling for the PV. I'm not mad at it though. Plenty of Kpop groups go thru this exploratory stage of mimicking other groups until they find a sound that suits them (remember when Sistar was a diet-2NE1?) It's just taking CLC a little longer lol. I hope they can find a happy medium between this and the cutesy stuff, which I guess Pepe kinda was that but... oh well.

DD: Dreamcatcher was a group called MINX. Their music was way different, too. :lol:

I like that CLC song. :( The rest of the EP is really good.

While doing some research on young Kpop, I was reminded of Sweety. I forgot how cute this song was.
