10 Must-Hear AOA Songs

K-pop girl group AOA became one of the first top-tier K-pop girl groups to release music in the new year when they released dual singles “Excuse Me” and “Bing Bing” on New Year’s Day (Jan. 2 in Korea).

After breaking out with a trio of hits in 2014, the group hit a rough patch in 2016, but came back strong with their first Korean studio album Angel’s Knock on Jan. 1, which debuted on the Billboard World Album chart at No. 5.

“Elvis” (2012)

The song that started it all, “Elvis” was AOA’s very first single. The peppy tune set the girl group apart with their unique approach to K-pop: AOA was built as a hybrid band & dance group. When they promoted the song on Korean music shows, several members (known as subunit AOA Black in 2013) played the song alongside brass accompaniment before moving to join the rest of AOA to perform the choreography.

I.O.I To Release One Final Track Written By SEVENTEEN’s Woozi

I.O.I is releasing a new track!

The group has announced plans to release their final single “Rain Shower.” Like all their previous tracks, “Rain Shower” was personally chosen by all 11 members and was decided as their final track.

The track will be I.O.I’s first sad melody, and uses the concept of rain showers to express the sadness of breaking up. However, the song also contains a bright, hopeful message of meeting again.

The lyrics for “Rain Shower” were written by SEVENTEEN’s Woozi, who also participated in the composition for the track alongside three other songwriters. The SEVENTEEN member wrote the track in hopes that it would create a good memory for the fans who gave I.O.I lots of love.

Meanwhile, I.O.I will be performing their new track “Rain Shower” for the first time at their solo concert, and the track is set to release on January 18 at midnight KST.

soompi, xportsnews

it's not a song by jinyoungsus as previously reported! but the girls picked it themselves and woozi only produces bops, so it'll be good either way! are you ready for ioi's last single, omona?

The 10 (non promoted) AOA song you should really listen to

Billboard gave our girls some spotlight and that was cute.
But who needs a "10 Must-Hear AOA Songs" with only title songs? (That's lazy, billboard).
As always Omona rose to the challenge and behold: The 10 AOA song you should really listen to

OP's note: Time & 10 sec. are not on the list, but only because they were promoted on music show

Picking just 10 songs was hard tbh
They have a lot of nice B-side (most of the times I think their b-side are actually better than the promoted songs).

Korean cinema continues to focus on male-centric plots of crime and political corruption

Female-led films and storylines will likely be a rarity on the big screen in 2017. Korean cinema this year, similar to previous years, seems set to be rife with political thrillers that critique its players’ individual greed and ambition, while focusing on male characters.

According to tentative schedules released by some of Korea’s major film distributors CJ Entertainment, Lotte Entertainment, Showbox and Next Entertainment World, the majority of films awaiting release in the upcoming months are crime thrillers or deal with political conspiracies.

Next Entertainment World’s “The King,” which hits Korean theaters Wednesday, features Zo In-sung as a ruthless prosecutor who claws his way to the top. CJ Entertainment will release “Fabricated City” in February, about a man taking revenge after being framed as a murderer. Similar titles will crowd theaters in the first half of 2017, almost all directed by male filmmakers and shedding the limelight on male protagonists.

Ugh, I missed out on "Missing" last month here in LA and I am kicking myself for it. I do want to see "The King" though.

Eat Your Way Through K-Pop

If you’re a K-pop fan, you must be aware of three big names of K-pop entertainment agencies – YG, SM, JYP. While smaller agencies like Jellyfish Entertainment, Big Hit Entertainment, and FNC Entertainment are rising with their stars as well, the big 3 are still dominating the world K-pop trend.

Recently, these large entertainment agencies are putting efforts to expand their businesses into fields beyond entertainment, penetrating into lifestyles. To K-pop fans world-wide, these following spaces give sneak-peeks of the incorporation of K-pop and lifestyle.

The article is missing some, I think. Doesn't Cube have a cafe too? Not looking forward to driving all the way down to the OC for YG Republique, but I want to see what merch they'll have and how much they'll charge for it.

Limitless Room is a new series of NCT videos (maybe?) where they play games while wearing pyjamas. The first episode has them playing tag like a bunch of kids. Then, NCT play a relay mission, take a pillow quiz and share rolling paper messages to each other through short series of NCT LIFE with app Nimdle. The other two videos are of them playing a game of guess the song while backstage at MAMA. > click cc to view subs

When typing out rhythm, do you use 'rhythm helps your two hips move' like me, Omona?
