OMONA ORIGINAL: Best K-Pop Deep Cuts from January - March 2021

[Links to Previous 2020 Lists]
January - February 2020
March - June 2020
July - September 2020
October – December 2020


New year, same old me. I'm continuing my compilation lists of the best K-pop deep cuts into 2021 because:
1) I'm bored 2) Singles are sometimes the worst song on an album, and 3) It's a pandemic and I have nothing better to do!

JANUARY

GOLDEN CHILD - ROUND N ROUND (기다리고 있어)



Album: Yes. (Full Album)
Release Date: January 25, 2021
Lead Single: Burn It

Why You Should Give "Round N Round" a Chance:
"ONE (Lucid Dream)" was one of my favourite K-pop songs last year - and while I don't think you'll fall in love with "Round N Round" on first listen, I do think you'll come to appreciate it as a well-constructed, mid-tempo pop song that you'll eventually keep finding your way back to. Something about the rapping and the vocal melody in the chorus makes me think of K-pop circa 2013 (in a good way!) and the instrumental breakdown in the bridge is really cool and funky. It's just a solid song from start to finish that is well worth your time.

What did I miss, omona? Educate me in the comments! I'm still obsessed with UP10TION's "Dawn" from last year. What are you playing on repeat?

TWICE Celebrates 🍭2000 Day Anniversary 🍭

https://instagram.com/p/CNfZNyLLFQC


The girls promised a v-live for their 2000 Days as Twice on their 500th day a few years ago (they even joked how they didn’t know if vlive would still be around on day 2000). They did their v-live together and posted videos and images on their Instagram.

Under the cut is a cute video of their managers, who have been with Twice for years, and Jihyo putting together the room for the celebration:

Seeing Jihyo help decorate and seeing all the albums on the wall 🥺 They’ve accomplished so much in less than 6 years. I’m very proud of them!

Set in a small, rural town, the show is about two friends ― actors Zo In-sung and Cha Tae-hyun ― running a supermarket for 10 days.



Watch episode 7 here. In this episode, Shin Seung Hwan, Park Byung Eun and Nam Joo Hyuk help out with dinner service. It's nice that Chef Jo got a little bit of a cooking break. Nam Joo Hyuk stays for one more day, and the shop gets a lot of lady visitors.
