Kpop: M!Countdown episode 427

You can watch it here (torrent) or look below for individual performances from Youtube.

Song #1: Sweet Revenge - Fly High
     Don't really care for K-rock music since the Japanese do it WAAAAYYY better but this was pretty decent. Some girly bubblegum rock to hold you down for a listen. 3/5

Song #2: SEVENTEEN - Adore U
     THEIR FIRST SONG but they've been around forever! Another kpop boyband song but the fanchants keep going! Regardless of how tired you might get of these songs, the fans never do. I wont complain. GET PAID! If it ain't broke don't fix it. lol The electronica beats do this song some justice.

Song #3: A.KOR - Black
     I wonder how Mnet felt about the marijuana earrings. Hmm. lol But this has american hip hop swagger from two females rapping over a carribean beat but still keeping that basic korean flavor. I see how yall do - pretty alright. If it's fake, yall fake it well. 4/5

Song #4: HOTSHOT - Watch Out
     Must be a message for the fangirls. Their choreo was pretty legit and the song is a pretty good warm up for...

Song #5: The Ark - The Light
      It's been a month since their tv and MV debut but the song keeps going strong. All kpop performances wind down after so many plays but I know it'll be a while before anyone gets over this song because "We're in this for life, yeah!"

Song #6: HALO - While you were sleeping
     While like most korean boybands do the same type of songs that other boybands do, HALO, I think, is developing their own style. It could be coincidence but their songs are starting to follow a trend of their own. Could be me though. 3/5

      What I want? What I need? Is more songs like this. Typical basic LED stick setup and OOOOHHHHH! Anyone saw that rollerskate Sketchers shoes move? Woot! That did it for me. ha 4/5

Song #8: BESTie - Excuse Me
    You're excused. Nice melody but where's the sass? There's a little there but not enough that this song calls for. I understand BESTie are trying to prove they're grown women but this screams "My titties just developed! Look at me! LOOK AT ME!!! Ms. Independent!" Still a good song though. 3/5

Song #9: Boys Republic - Hello (COMEBACK STAGE)
    Guitar rifts and a bunch of Big Bens in the background make for a cheep set up but it was effective. Looking for a hit, it's not here. Fangirls are getting a field day from the falling ashen flower petals which do add a lovely effect. 3/5

Song #10: CLC - CUPID
    People are getting tired of the song without getting tired of this new girlband from. They shot our hearts and we're still bleeding love! I think we know who made the best of two CUPIDs. 4/5

Song #11 HIGH4 - Baby Boy
    Soft trap hip hop beat with lots of melody. Sounds a little Scandi pop to me and that's a good thing. Hopefully they will get into similar type songs and keep us "high" as a kite. 3/5

Song #12: HISTORY - Might Just Die
    Piano rifts and super shiney hair doos. They're creating a a dark moods with the black and grey striped suits with Jesus necklaces but is that enough? It works commercially but we know commercial doesn't equal good. Even the shirt lift/show abs did little for the crowd. 2/5

Song #13: CLC - Like
    Another potential hit for this new girl group. Gotta love the preteen wardrobe and the staging that fills the stage... Even without an actually setup. The bubble storm in the end really adds to the girly awesomeness of this group! Thank Cube Entertainment on the way out. 4/5

Song #14: MONSTA X - Trespass
    WARNING! WARNING! You gotta excuse their charisma! Move out the way! 3.5/10

Song #15: N.Flying - Awesome
     I'd call this cool or nice, swell even, but not awesome. A good attempt with the rousing "nah nah nha nah nah" but this rock band is a little too pop for the sound they're going for. Korea likes them  but internationally... Is left to be desired. 3/5

Song #16: Jun Hyo Seong - Into You
    The intro reminds me of I'll Be There by the Spice Girls. What is that funky fruity whine called? I don't know but it works for her. And I'm happy to finally see a solo act and ever happier that solo act is actually involved with the back up dancers. One the best performances on the show. 4/5

Song #17 - JJY BAND - OMG
     OMG is right! FINALLY! Some good Krock music! And the flames... THE FLAMES! Everything is right with this act and these dudes need to keep on acting! 4.5/5

Song #18: Kim Sung Kyu - Kontrol
     Could it be the melody lemon drops? I don't know what it is but it's good. 4/5

Song #19: KARA - CUPID
     Not as good a CLCs CUPID... Actually, it's just as good. CLC went girly for theirs and KARA went... KARA's always had those Jpop influnces and it shows here. Not as strong as their other songs but still worth the listen. 3.5/5

Song #20: EXO - Love Me Right (COMEBACK STAGE)
     The stage setup is a water down version of their usual stages but still pretty cool withe the words written on the foggy windows. Not sure what the house plants are for... To make it smell good? Or maybe an over zealous fan that's a botanist. lol Either way, they're viving for love which they already had and the crowd loves it. Nice job. 4/5

Song #21: SHINee - View
     So much momentum and I'm not saying that because I'm a shawol. House music mania and the bigh white balls... They got balls! And the glitter falling from the ceiling... I'ma stop. And just rate it. 4.5/5

Song #22: BIG BANG - We Like To Party (COMEBACK STAGE)
    It's BIG BANG... Do I need to explain? Lots of large white plants and flowers and mirrors which give it that effect you expect from the awesomeness that is Kpop music! The rock music bangs like I'm in a bar or outside with friends and if I play this others would join in a jam with us on the beach sipping on Coronas and coolers and BBQing in the bonfire. WORTHY! 4.5/5

     ALL CAPS HYPE! If you don't like the crazy hyphy club music, this is NOT for you! This is the voice of a generation that only that gerneration can f*cking understand. Eurphoria and pandimonia spreads and infects and inflicts everyone within earshot and everyone else catching contact! If you're not jumping then you either don't like the noise or you're cripple and I understand. The stage is a big, velet, and gold just like the band themselves. It looks expensive, it feels expensive, and I like this luxe life! BANG BANG BANG! 5/5

Winner of the week: SHINee vs KARA... SHINee wins this week with View.

Who should've won this week? Take this poll! (Even though I have NO followers)
