July was another busy month in Kpop land with more great comebacks and debuts. There were some great releases in Japan as well – so many that I decided to give them their very own post – so stay tuned!
Top MVs – Korea
1. B1A4 ~ Solo Day
Well I loved a lot of songs this month, but it was the MV that got B1A4 over the line with this fun ‘Summer time’ comeback. Jinyoung did a great job composing this title track for B1A4’s newest mini-album and the MV is just great! This is the first MV B1A4 have released without a dance, but it was still very entertaining. I liked the quirky plot and the boys were just too cute in it! As I said in my post about this song – the live performance was great too!
2. Infinite ~ Back
This is really my favorite song for the month – possibly for the year. It’s just really awesome. The only reason I couldn’t vote it number one was due to the horrific nature of the MV. I mean seriously, who enjoys watching their favorite idols getting beaten up? Not me that’s for sure. Thankfully they have now released a dance version so I am going to be sneaky and link that MV instead.
3. Block B – HER
Block B finally had a proper comeback this month with their new song HER. This was a fantastic comeback. The song has that great Block B flavour and the MV is full of energy and fun. I’m glad they got to promote a bit of Jackpot with their comeback stages. I love Jackpot a lot!
4. Henry – Fantastic
Henry is back! Yay! Once again we have Henry showing off his music and dance talents in a good MV. Sure he’s stuck in a box, but there is a little bit of a plot, and the box scenes are pretty cool. I was pretty happy with this comeback – but now I need him to comeback with a song that will blow us away and win him some number 1s!
5. Boys Republic – Dress Up
Boys Republic are one of my more favorite rookie groups. I was very happy to say I was not disappointed with this comeback. I really enjoyed this fun and colourful MV and the song is quite catchy. I’m a sucker for colourful hair and cute concepts and this MV had them all.
6. 100% – U Beauty
Iv’e been a fan of 100% for a while now, and have been very pleased with their comebacks this year considering they are down 2 members. U Beauty is a super catchy song and the MV is very cute. I really liked their dance as well. These boys have some talent, that’s for sure!
7. C-Clown – Let’s Love
My love for C-Clown has grown a lot this year. They are very funny, and their leader is a fellow Aussie! He’s quite talented too, producing their cute YouTube reality series. If you haven’t seen it you should check it out of C-Clowns official YouTube channel. This was another good summer time song. It was catchy and fun with a great performance to go along with it. I also appreciated the abs – thanks Rome…
8. F(x) – Red Light
At first I didn’t really know if I was a fan of this song, but it really grew on me with each performance I watched. I do love F(x) and their unique concepts. This MV was pretty good too. I love the performance, the outfits and all the arty effects. F(x) deserved the wins they got, it’s just a bit sad they were soured somewhat with Sulli’s troubles. Poor Sulli.
Legend – Left Out
I really enjoyed this debut. Legend are a 5 member boy band under the label JK Space. They have some talented vocalists and quite a catchy song. I was sad they weren’t able to promote their song on all the music shows. It must be a hard world out there for debut groups who don’t have a powerful label behind them.
B.I.G – Hello
I know this song is a bit ridiculous, but I really loved this debut. It’s a cute anthem song which introduces them quite well. I love singing along! Whatsup annyeong! B.I.G stands for Boys in Groove and I’m looking forward to what these cute boys bring to us in the future.
LU:KUS – So Into You
LU:KUS finally debuted this month after a somewhat rocky road. I wasn’t initially blown away by their song but I have, somehow, come to listen to it a lot and now I really like it. I liked the costuming and dance in the MV.
And that’s it for July! Better late then never! :)
