KPOP in 2018: What's Missing For You?


With the year closing out but the next month cram packed with comebacks what would you like to see? What's missing from this year that would totally blow you away (music or visuals)?

...and what's been overdone that you never want to see again?

If someone mentions something that you know someone did this year plz share links :D

never got a tvxq chance of love repackage which is criminal so that’s missing

truee there's been a lack of repacks from SM this year it feels like? Shinee's been the only one?
vintage_boom 7th-Nov-2018 01:31 am (UTC)
didn't realize there would be a huge influx of posts at the same time.

For me it felt like ear worm factor died off in May this year. there were a series of great songs even people who weren't fans of the groups liked and then in after May there hasn't rly been a song that exploded like Love Scenario, Boom Boom, LATATA, or Shine. Not that there weren't great songs put out but nothing that like transcended "if you already check out this group you'll rly love this"

Also, MVs I think agencies need to start hiring outside the small pool of directors, DOPS and art directors they've used on big name projects. hire more women cowards

and im so sick of the shoot dance plz make it stop

All of SVT's videos with Project Architecture are beautiful. They also did "Love Scenario," and are highly underutilized in the industry.

I know this is due to fans being too powerful now but I miss group interplay. Even when fans are excited in a good way it's always this HUGE EVENT and heaven forbid boy and girl groups ever interact right? thanks banas

Wonderbang holds up because you can tell they were having a fun time and it was all just silly & goofy:

Gimme more of that.

Give me Vixx and Dreamcatcher and I'll cry
myrrhcat 7th-Nov-2018 02:04 am (UTC)
hello venus comeback, brave girls comeback, f(x) comeback, pristin full group comeback, twice doing a mature concept, ggs covering each others' songs on music shows, more mature & sexy girl groups made up of grown women
aeipathy 7th-Nov-2018 10:43 pm (UTC)
i've given up hope for most of this happening
theweebdream 7th-Nov-2018 02:14 am (UTC)
I know it’s never gonna happen but please let f(x) have a comeback :(

Also when is Bom’a solo stuff happening? I thought it was supposed to happen this month but I feel like I haven’t heard anything on it in forever.
ramenhime 7th-Nov-2018 02:35 am (UTC)
f(x) coming back would literally save kpop
i was going to say t-ara comeback but we have momoland now
lelouchikaru 7th-Nov-2018 06:36 am (UTC)
what could Shinsadong Tiger have in his hard drive maybe he has some for either t-ara or momoland

I WAS JUST ABOUT TO MAKE THIS COMMENT!!! I want the trend to die in a fire.
thebloomroom 7th-Nov-2018 03:10 am (UTC)
🗣🗣🗣 Another VIXX comeback but it aint happening. smh
sacryde 9th-Nov-2018 01:59 am (UTC)
I would kill for another VIXX comeback, especially since I only got into them after Scentist and they're now my absolute faves, only after SHINee.
jyusou 7th-Nov-2018 03:20 am (UTC)
a park bom comeback.
bts with a western artist collab that doesn't make me want to rme or become one with my couch. seriously, i underestimated how nhft i was with so many of them.
yg getting his ass handed to him, like he deserves.
mikachi613 7th-Nov-2018 04:30 pm (UTC)
BTS needs to work with more Western indie artists, there are plenty that would be a good fit for their sound.

When all his BS finally catches up with YG, it's gonna be a karmic retribution of apocalyptic proportions. I anticipate it deliciously.
youtubelargo 7th-Nov-2018 03:40 am (UTC)
The answer is obviously Park Bom, Queen of All. Although I really don't know why Ailee didn't come back. Her Kcon LA set was no joke the best performance I've seen all year.
mikachi613 7th-Nov-2018 04:31 pm (UTC)
I miss Ailee and G.NA like nobody's business.
sasstronaut 7th-Nov-2018 03:51 am (UTC)
i started paying attention to kpop again a few months ago only to find that my fav girl groups (fx, wonder girls, orange caramel) are all dead. so i’m missing a girl group that can fill the hole in my heart that they left and so far only red velvet comes close.

as for what’s overdone: songs having instrumental breakdowns instead of a proper chorus. it’s the laziest shit and it’s been a trend for years now. please make it stop, i’m begging.
lil_poisonfrog 7th-Nov-2018 03:58 am (UTC)
If you like rock at all I highly recommend Dreamcatcher. For me they really fill the void of different/unique gg that OC and Crayon Pop left behind (along with RV, you have taste). A lot of ppl also find Loona's concept really exciting.

lil_poisonfrog 7th-Nov-2018 03:56 am (UTC)
Agree with y'all about an f(x) cb.

Overall I feel this has been a great year for K-pop, better than 2017 imo. I've listened to most major releases and a lot of mid-tier/nugus, though I'm a little behind now (really need to listen to NCT, Exo and BoA's albums). Even groups with weaker title tracks have put out some AMAZING b-sides (BTS, AOA and Seventeen in particular). Girl groups especially have been turning it out! The majority of bops came from ggs this year and I won't hear otherwise. Love that the 3rd gen ggs are finally giving us more variety in concepts as well.

My dream rn is for RV's cb to blow us all away (if the rumored title, Romantic Thriller, is accurate then I'm hype) and for them to chart on Billboard though I know it's pretty unlikely. But their music and concepts deserve it.

I also hope both Loona and Dreamcatcher blow up next year. I heard Loona's gonna tour in the west in 2019 which is awesome. I'm not ready to full on stan yet but I've listened to their discog and there's a lot of potential there.

Also gonna need a FULL Oh!GG comeback with an album and music shows.

what you said about RV and SNSDOGG is exactly my thoughts
minho_lover 7th-Nov-2018 04:36 am (UTC)

i cant wait for Bom’s new music! i MISS brave girls! excited for laysha’s new music too! im so annoyed by twice’s new song liiike pls im sick of these generic songs!!! and i feel like that was alteast a good half of this years songs,,,sound too similar. SO HAPPY ABOUT APINKS COMEBACK!!! i hope they stick with it! i neeeeed red velvet to come back with something,,,not like “power up.” loooved sf9 n nct’s comebacks!

belintuchiha 7th-Nov-2018 05:15 am (UTC)

Can’t complain as long as I get more Dreamcatcher. I just need more BEG but they’ve been really busy with solo work, I’m just glad they’re busy!

mikachi613 7th-Nov-2018 04:32 pm (UTC)
BEG is that rare group (male or female), who have the power to comeback whenever they damn well please and people will be hyped every time instead of losing interest.
lelouchikaru 7th-Nov-2018 06:27 am (UTC)
Slow news day but here I am endlessly wishing for an f(x) comeback and SR18G's debut.
mikachi613 7th-Nov-2018 04:37 pm (UTC)
agreed, SM's female trainees are slowly filing out, meaning that they're probably finalizing the lineup. They need to take the weight off of Red Velvet and get some fresh blood in there.
