After introducing you our new monthly series we are here with its August run. What were the four comebacks or debuts that caught our attention during this last month? Let´s see them below.
STRAY KIDS – THUNDEROUS
Every time the JYP Entertainment group make a comeback they always manage to impact fans worldwide and this was no exception. ‘Thunderous’ although simple in its thumping beat definitely is an earworm.
Always love it when groups combined some Korean historical culture into their concepts and the modern take on it here with the traditional appearances of the landscape in the music video contrasted well with the hardcore raps the member spit.
MIRAE – SPLASH
Another release that came out towards the tail of the month, this 1st comeback from their debut showed a different side to the septet. Moving away from their futuristic concept, they moved towards a more generic boy group sound. That’s not a bad thing at all though because they show their colours with ample amounts of rookie energy.
If the sound isn’t your cup of tea and you liked their previous debut sound, don’t worry. The mini album contains tracks with a similar vibe like ‘Bang-up’ and ‘#Secret’. The comeback looks to continue their success, already shipping almost 32,000 copies. This matches their debut EP effort with only 3 days worth of sales.
HA SUNG WOON – Strawberry Gum (Feat. Don Mills)
Ha Sung Woon is on our radar since his ‘Bird‘ song as all of his music releases are a true treasure. And this August comeback did not disappoint us at all. He delivered yet another catchy, colorful and playful song we fell in love with. If you are like us and listen to music while dancing around, check the choreography for this song carefully. The moves are sleek yet very easy to learn and that was exactly what we did. Some of the moves are complimenting the beat perfectly and we were able to enjoy the song while dancing the choreo as well. The darker blue color of Ha Sung Woon’s hair and the yellow uniform of a cleaner was another win for us!
10CM – GO BACK
As the summer comes to its end some might tend to think of the things in life that comes to an end with the warm breeze as well. This song made us think of summer love stories which seemed to be perfect at that moment, but reflecting on them in retrospective we realize we followed our heart in the wrong direction. That bitter sweet after-taste such love leaves at the tip of your tongue matched this song and we kept on replaying it.
