Latest K-Pop Songs

DAVICHI – First Loss

Ballad queens DAVICHI return with a digital single, First Loss, but a more suitable interpretation for the song would be ‘My first love‘ for a song so mellow and poetic that is dedicated to the good memories and the sweet yet regretful reminiscence of one’s first love. Being true to Davichi’s vogue, the song thrives over genial acoustics. The music video features a couple, from the patient beginning of their relationship to the resentful end.

IU – strawberry moon

K-Pop queen IU made a smashing comeback with her new single ‘strawberry moon‘ that instantly took over everyone’s heart. The rosy, saccharine music video features K-Drama actor Lee Jong-Won as her romantic interest as they embark on their intergalactic, fantastical date. The song gently delves into the pleasant moments spent with a loved one. It sounds like a song from the early 00s, with ostentations of piano, enhanced by her weightless vocals and a dynamic key change at the last chorus.

CNBLUE – Love Cut

Pop Rock band CNBLUE return back together after their mandatory military enlistment with a new Korean EP ‘WANTED’. The title track ‘Love Cut‘ presents the trio as handsome cowboys who are trying to escape the toxic clutches of their lovers in a suave manner. Taking influences from the midwest, the song follows the iconic guitars and whistles that gradually develop into a more bassy sound. Complete with Lee Yong-Hwa‘s vocals, the song is a pleasant head-bopper.
