[Music] MinJoon’s Monthly Top 10 – July 2018

It’s now July, and the heat is kicking real hard in Vegas. Stay cool, stay hydrated. Let’s get onto our list shall we?

gugudan
10. Samina GUGUDAN SAMINA
I was a bit confused on if the sub unit was called Samina, or just the title was weird. So, looking into this, this sub unit is all the girls that participated in Produce 101 Season 1. There is a short scene where they all answer the phone, and each member has their own color; it honestly reminded me of Power Puff Girls, and their Emergency Phone. I thought it was kind of funny that the sign on the closed shop said “Sorry We’re Holiday!” The song and MV have this rockabilly vibe, almost a MAMAMOO powerhouse vintage feel, if ya get what I’m trying to say. Its a fun little vacation song, and I find it to be cute, and different from Gugudan’s usual style.

seventeen-oh-my
9. Oh MySEVENTEEN
Leave it up to Seventeen to play with the aesthetics. Their MV’s are always artistic in some sort of way, though they don’t always tell a story, they are very pleasing to watch. I also like how they took on the dancing this time, with the different times of movement; reminds me of those soldier walks. I’m really glad they brought back the clouds, it brought back memories of Adore U. They honestly never fail to impress me with how much talent they really do have.

Triple-H5
8. Retro FutureTriple H
The beginning of this music video kind of starts off looking like a purge movie, the show up at a couple’s house with masks and baseball bats, and ring the door bell, that seems to have a camera attached. The beginning also starts off with some Cha Cha Slide remix in the background, Well the trio makes it into the home and starts trashing it and playing around with the couple inside. The song itself has old funky beats and some new vibes, so it really fits with the title Retro Future; but we all know that if Hyuna is involved, its going to sound sexy as well. The MV also has a lot of ink spill filters to give it that old vibe as well, other than that it is very artistic.

Apink-Im-so-Sick-screenshot-2018-billboard-1548
7. I’m So SickApink
I feel as this month is a more retro/vintage month. In this video we have a lot of VHS filters, Old box TVs, and film tape, that unfortunately is being more abused than looked at, such as sitting in a sink, or being touched with fingers. I really enjoy the chorus it gives the song a different kind of feel to it. The lyrics go on to talk about how they don’t have the same feelings they used to, but how they don’t really want it to end, though they cannot continue lying about their feelings. It also feels like the other person’s feelings has changed as well, they say “you call every night when your drunk and show no sign of sincerity” So it seems both sides are trying to hold on to feelings that are no longer there. 

twice
6. Dance The Night AwayTwice
Now this MV confuses me a tad bit and I have been reading into some theories for it. So, the girls end up on a strange island, and they start building shelter and gathering food and all that, and thanks to their good effort, they have a party. Well notice how Nayeon, Momo, Mina, and Jungyeon are all wearing full black dresses that don’t seem to fit the time era of the rest of the outfits? And they also didn’t really help create the shelter and/or help getting food. Twice even mentioned that this was a bit of a Horror theme, but at first glance you really don’t notice much. Some have theories that those in black are ghosts, and are trying to keep the rest of the girls on the island. It’s also strange how in the beginning they are calling out for help, and waving out to the ocean for any sign of help, but at the end, when a cruise ship passes by the island, they go back to sleep and forget about it. What’s your take on this MV?

kard-ride-on-the-wind-2018-billboard-1548
5. Ride on the WindKARD
I can always appreciate that KARD has a lot of choreography in their music videos, it really does tie the video together. I really like the summer beach vibes, it seems they honestly had a lot of fun filming this on the beach. To me the song sounds a bit like uncertainty in a relationship between friends potentially becoming lovers. The male part is asking how do I get into your heart, what am I not doing, I can wait; while the female part is asking, do you really like me, tell me you don’t hate me, and is all brought together with ‘Ride on the Wind’. Ride on the wind almost sounds like another way to say go with the flow, just let nature take its coarse.

astro-always-you
4. Always You ASTRO
Beautiful Astro, beautiful! I actually love this. Also I’m super excited about their hair colors this comeback, I have a soft spot in my heart for green hair. (if anyone remembers my hair was green for two years). This comeback has a lot of emotion in it, and I adore that ASTRO can always pull that off. The music video switches around from clear, black and white, to full colors and its very visually pleasing.

3. EgotisticMAMAMOO
This song has a very Latin feel, but stays true to MAMAMOO’s unique style. They take on a very sensual feel to this MV; such as Hwasa in a bathing suit, Solar on a pole, the hip rolls, skit slits. I like that Moonbyul plays up her style a lot, between a Mariachi jacket to a very feminine two piece suit. You can also see more of Wheein’s tattoos, I’m not sure how many are hers or just for this comeback, but they suit her. I also like the new logo they are using.

FTISLAND9
2. Summer Night’s DreamFTIsland
Wow oh Wow, Hongki is looking cute! The way he acts in this music video reminds me of the way he acted as Jeremy in You’re Beautiful; just that shy almost dorky cute love. I do believe the theme has a bit of a MidSummer Night’s Dream in it, with the soft focus, flowers and romance. They are even performing in a theatre.

Leo
1. Touch and SketchLeo
Wow oh wow. This is really sexy. I am extremely proud that Leo is doing a solo, he’s so passionate with his work, and it shows in Canvas. The video in short reminds me of “Paint me like one of your french girls.” It’s very sexy, lots of painting, amazing choreography, it’s awesome. You can also see how much Leo has broken out of his shell, and how much his acting comes out in this.

[Music] MinJoon’s Monthly Top 10 – June 2018

It’s June and it’s extremely hot in Vegas!! Why not beat the heat with these cool beats! Haha sorry, I am attempting to make this fun, but for real, it’s super hot.

10. Rain SoundsMigyo
This song is all about missing someone, and how everything falls to memory after a long time. Through the video she goes through the grief of breaking up, and longs for them to comeback or call her when they are drunk. She talks about how her heart is stunned by the sorrow she feels and how everything she remembers is just a memory and no longer things that are happening at the moment.

9. You Are My XXXXXUrata Naoya
Holy Crap, so, Urata is my bias from AAA (triple A, Attack All Around) released solo, that isn’t on itunes or anything, I just happened to see the teaser on twitter. Those who don’t know AAA, they are a 6 member group from Japan, that consists of 2 girls and 4 boys, that debuted in 2005. Anyways, I knew the title had XXXXX in it, but I had no idea it was gonna be lowkey sexy. Urata has such a unique voice and it fits this song and concept very well.

8. SunsetKim Dong Han
So JBJ’s Maknae has a solo! A very impressive Solo. He that some vibe Taemin gives off in his solos, not saying he’s like Taemin, just saying they have a very unique emotion when dancing. Its very sensual they way he dances, and the song fits perfectly with it. I’ve never listened to JBJ, but if this is the vibe him and his members are going to give off, I’ll give it a shot! It’s a very simple but visually pleasing MV.

red_velvet_cookie_jar_0
7. #Cookie JarRed Velvet
This video was a little weird, but super cute. Some how the girls found a random jar of cookies buried in the forest, and thought “Hey lets eat these!” and on this weird magic sugar high they are on, they start to add random ingredients to their sweets, such as shoes. Well now eating those sweets they start getting random buttons, ants and shoelaces inside those sweets, so they destroy all the sweets and smash the now ant infested cookie jar. TBH I hate finding weird things in my food, so it was a little hard for me to watch them pull weird stuff out of cakes and cookies. I do enjoy that the colors of their outfits shift to black to pink. Red Velvet never fails to impress me with their songs, and how often they put them out. Also Congrats on the 1st Japanese Mini Album!

Taeyeon-Something-New-screenshot-2018-billboard-1548
6. Something NewTaeyeon
I really enjoy MV that are half Black and White and half Color. As much as I miss Tae’s blonde hair, she looks amazing as always. It starts off with very random flashes of scenes and then Taeyeon crying, to stepping out of a car onto the red carpet. Then it goes to her being an assassin of sorts. Which usually there is a reason behind it, money, fame, revenge, but at the end Taeyeon throws her suitcases full of money and jewels while shooting them with a shot gun. Very odd but I dig it.

5. Take Me HigherACE
So I actually saw the Relay Dance of this before the MV, and I love the shorts haha. The dance on it’s own is fun and playful. The MV made me crack up a few times at them keeping a straight face while balls were flying at them. I like the bright colors and fun vibe of this MV a lot. Oh! Crop tops!

shinee-our-page
4. Our PageSHINee
Grab your tissues cause this MV hurt me a lot. Now I know SHINee is on this list twice, and please know that I write all of these out of order according to what comes out first, Anyways… The Music Video shows the members going through training, filming shoots, making music, but all have this underlining want to not feel or be there. It cycles through feelings and with the lyrics together its honestly really emotional. So these lyrics the members wrote for JongHyun, and the album even includes a special track with JongHyun’s vocals included. “목소리 날아 너 있는 곳에 닿을 거란 걸 우린 알잖아” Our voices are flying, We know it’ll reach you wherever you are. SHINee will always continue to fly as 5

Day6-shoot-me-screenshot-billboard-1548
3. Shoot Me DAY6
This is an amazing way to shine light onto verbal abuse. The lyrics say its easier to take a bullet than your harsh words. Verbal abuse can happen to anyone in any relationship, and from someone who has received verbal abuse, it honestly is hard to handle words that stick in your mind for a long time, and even DAY6 as idols, hearing harsh words constantly takes a toll on your well being.

2. 파블로프의 개 (Ft. Cold Bay, Basick)RAVI
So I honestly thought Ravi was going to have a video for this, since he seems to enjoy them, but I don’t blame him. This is a Mixtape, and not technically a comeback, but its new music and that’s what matters to me. It’s a good sound to bounce to, I dig it. I appreciate Ravi’s efforts and how he goes to his friends for feedback. It takes a lot to produce a mixtape, and this being his 3rd one. You can defiantly feel and hear how far Ravi has come.

shinee-iwantyou
1. I Want YouSHINee
I want you to love this song as much as I do. I absolutely adore this concept, the edit, the fashion, the style of song. This is a great Summer Bop. It has this late 80s early 90s computer vaporwave look to the MV, and their old fashion look, but with a modern song, *perfect.gif* Its just perfect.
