The highly anticipated debut of SM’s power group is finally here. Many fans were excited and many were nervous about the high focus on the American market as this group features a lot of K-pop fan’s fav’s from SM groups SHINee, EXO and NCT. Quite honestly some of the best artist’s in K-pop, there was a lot riding on this release so how did it stand up to the hype? While I know and admire all of these members previously from their respective groups I wouldn’t consider myself a stan of any of them, but still I was very excited to see what this was all about.

Oneus had their K-pop debut back in January and quickly became one of my new favourite groups with their debut track, Valkyrie, being one of my top songs of this year. They had their first comeback in May with the title track Twilight which I enjoyed although not as much as their debut, you can see my review of that mini album here.
This is their second comeback and third mini album, let’s see how I felt about it.

I decided to compile a list of K-pop songs according to different moods, just for fun. These songs of course are mostly from my own personal tastes so please don’t be offended if your favs arn’t listed here, feel free to leave songs in the comments! I tried to take the sound of the song as well as the lyrics into consideration while categorising (I also tried to only have 1 song per artist per category), I hope you enjoy and maybe find something new that you like. Songs marked with a ♥ means it’s one of my all time favs and you should definitely check it out. (links lead to lyric videos on YouTube)

I’m stuck for blog post ideas so I thought I’d give a glimpse at some of my top K-pop title tracks of the year so far, I will of course post my full list at the end of the year. I feel like there have been so many great releases this year, deciding on my top tracks will be really difficult, especially ranking them!
Ateez – Hala Hala
Oneus – Valkyrie
KNK – Sunset
Taemin – Want
Stray Kids – Side Effects
BTS – Blood Sweat & Tears
I certainly can’t have a most aesthetically pleasing K-pop MVs list without this now can I? I’m sticking to 1 MV per group/artist and everything about this just screams beauty to me (no not just the members). The whole set and colour pallet is gorgeous and scenes like Taehyung under the sheet and JK floating in the air are breathtaking. Also how paint features in this MV with the splattering and when it runs down Jimin’s face, just yes. This MV and the whole Wings era was inspired by a book called Demian by Hermann Hesse.
NU’EST W – Where You At
Nu’est have a lot of aesthetically pleasing MVs but I’m picking Where You At for the variety. I really love the individual member room sets and how they feature different colour pallets. The purple church and beach scenes are my favourites along with Ren in that red lace blindfold.
More to come! Which K-pop MVs do you find the most aesthetically pleasing?
Me and my friend Lena (who also loves k-pop) thought it would be fun to do one of these, and seeing as we both love BTS a lot, to do one featuring only BTS! This is just for fun and our own opinions.

Oneus debuted back in January with Valkyrie and quickly became one of my new top groups, the title track was amazing and the whole mini album was solid. So here we are with their first comeback and 2nd mini album, Raise Us with title track Twilight.
How will it stand against their debut?
Here are my first thoughts of listening to the songs:
