In this post, you will find a colloection of songs that I really truly liked up till now. I wanted to share these songs so people can appreciate more of Kpop / Korean music and learn that it’s not just about the idols. There are lots of them whom you have not heard of yet.

Share share share.. just don’t forget to credit ^_^

Oh and you probably won’t be reading this part.. but here is why I like these songs:

Touche Mon Amour – Winterplay >>> This genre of Korean music is not very popular yet. I love the jazz feel to it. It feels like I am not listening to a Korean song! I love the saxophone solo!! kk but what’s not to love about Winterplay. If you are tired of Kpop idol groups and you want to try something new, try listening to them! By the way, Winterplay is from the same company as Clazziquai. Their fron Fluxus. If you’ve grown tired of idols and want some refreshin Korean songs, check out their artist. I recommend Bye Bye Sea (Annyeong Bada).
I’m Going Crazy – MC Mong ft. M.A.C >>> I have to admit I am an MC Mong fan. I loved his music. I loved his variety show talents. I was kind of sad when he had to depart from the Kpop scene. But this is one of my favorites from his song. You should see the video too! It’s kind of funny and try to spot his manager on the video! LOL! 🙂
Good Person – Super Junior >>> This list cannot not have Super Junior. Anyway, contrary to their popular songs (yes I do like them), I tend to like the less popular ones better. Well maybe except for It’s You. This song is included in this list because its  remake from an old Kpop song by Toy (Yoo Hee Yeol from Sketchbook). I liked this song when Toy did it and I loved it when Super Junior made it. This is what I listen to over and over again from their 4th album! Oh and this song they got to sing, even Eunhyuk!! kk

Happy Together – Super Junior >>> One of my favorites in their third album. Its a refreshing sound with a very light melody but gives you a peek that these boys can sing too.. I love that it can be a theme for friends as well as for lovers. I love it when they say “Yeongwonhi Happy Together” 🙂
Love in the Ice (Korean version) – DBSK >>> This was included in the Mirotic album of DBSK back when there were 5 members. The original version of this song was actually done in Japanese but they made a Korean one for this album with the lyrics in Korean written by Changmin. This song is a very powerful one and it really lets us hear how good this group was when it came to singing in melody! It would give me goosebumps when I heard them perform this song live! Oh and Junsu dear Junsu, how can you not love him when he’s singing such a powerful part in this song!!
Flowepot (Hwabun) – Alex >>> I have three Korean songs I love the most and I can sing quite well. Hwabun (Flowerpot) is one of them. I loved this since I heard it on Coffee Prince and I loved it even more when I heard Alex sing it! He sang it on the first season of We Got Married for Shinae. His voice really fits it. I super love this song!
Love Mode – Clazziquai ft. Tablo >>> Before my fascination for Kpop idol groups came my fascination for Clazziquai. I love this kind of music and I love how they fit Alex and Horan’s voices into a DJ Clazzi song. I especially love it when they do their blending which is very evident in this song. This song may not be very popular but I love it also because Tablo did the rap in English! I miss Clazziquai and I want to hear their songs again!!
A Love Story – Gavy NJ >>> The first song I heard from Gavy NJ and from then on I’ve never stopped listening to them. I’m always waiting for their songs. I think they are one of those groups who are not given as much attention as they should have. These three girls can sing! This song is one of my most favorites (with Hwabun). I love how they can belt the high notes of their songs.
Timeless – Jang Ri In ft. Junsu (JYJ) >>> Jang Ri In’s first single with Junsu (JYJ). I have to admit I liked it first because of Junsu and because the video had Siwon. But the more I listen to this song the more I’m loving their powerful voices blending together. Most DBSK fans would know of this song, but a lot of new fans should know about this too!
Listen To You – Kyuhyun (Super Junior) from the OST of Pasta >>> I love the drama Pasta and I love that Kyuhyun (Super Junior) did this song! This voice is absolutely perfect for it. I mean I wasn’t really a fan of his until I heard him sing in the Super Junior concert! His voice is truly the best. Not too high, not too low but he can belt a high not if he has too! Very very good!
Only I Don’t Know About Love – Namolla Family >>> Love love love Namolla Family. Well they aren’t very popular oversear but their songs are quite good and very comfortable to listen too! This is my favorite song from them. I like the song because it’s a mix of pop but as well as rap.. but not in an idol kind of way, in a relaxed way.. a song you could listen to on a lazy Sunday afternoon which will get you singing..
I Love You – Position >>> Back then sad Korean music videos were a popular trend. This was one of them. And I still like this song until now. 🙂 It’s a remake from a classic Japanese song. If you are a DBSK fan, look for clips or mp3s of Changmin singing this ~~ then you’ll understand why I like it!
I Love You – Tim >>> Tim oh Tim! kkk so I am Tim’s fan. But this balladeer has a very nice voice and he was one of the original Kpop artists I really liked back when I was just getting to know about Kpop. I loved it when he sang “geudel saranghamnida…” This is by the way his first song.
South Island – Hachi and TJ >>> Ppoppo hago shipseo! kk I remember this line from We Got Married. Before all the new couples I was addicted to We Got Married when it first came out in 2008. Wow I can’t imagine that was almost 4 years ago!! Though I wasn’t really a fan of AlShin couple (that’s Alex and Shinae), I liked that songs were often associated with them. And this was one of the songs. Back in 2008 it was difficult to find sources for Kpop stuff, but thanks to my student she gave me this song and I love love it until now. I like this song also because of the island feel to it. I’ve always loved Hawaiian reggae so thus my fast attachment to the song.
Let Me Love You – Yurisangja >>> I loved this duo since I first heard their song To My Bride. And this is one of my favorites from them. It is a little popular as a lot of idols have made some covers of this but nothing beats the original performers. The songs of Yurisangja for me still sound good and I love how they can make wonderful acoustic melodies even if the song was from an idol group.

Enjoy!!

Zhang Li Yin – Moving On

So why am I posting this video when I have to sleep!?!?! ^^

But I had to because Donghae looks so handsome in this video and I really miss Zhang Li Yin..

If you’re not familiar who she is, she is Jang Ri In in Korea and she was the girl whom Xiah Junsu sang Timeless with.. This is another of her sad songs.. this time it was no Hangeng and Siwon… but Donghae!

I am not going to be adding a lot of words to this post.. just watch the video! ^^

Timeless – Jang Ri In feat Xiah Junsu

If you’ve been reading my blog I’m sure you’ve noticed that I am a DBSK fan :D. And like I’ve mentioned, among the 5 gorgeous (and not to mention sizzling hot) guys, my favorite is Xiah Junsu — I just love his voice and the way he dances. The song I am posting now is a duet he had with Jang Ri In, a Korean singer of Chinese origins. If I’m not mistaken, this is Jang Ri In’s first single, which was released sometime in 2006 (yup its kinda old). I’ve been listening to this song for quite sometime but I never got to watch the video until now. The song of course is another ballad and is kind of sad. But I like the way their voices blends — and I’m especially biased when it comes to Xiah’s voice.

The video has 2 parts, there a story to it. I won’t be telling you the details because I think its worth watching — just a comment though, Korean’s really know how to make good plots even though its only a music video (perfect example is Kiss’ Because I’m a Girl). The Music Video features Choi Siwon (yay!) and Han Kyung (Han Geng) of Super Junior and actress Lee Yeon Hee (East of Eden).

Timeless (Romanization)

Ahn dweh yoh, nal no ah bu lee myun,
Himdeul uh do yuh gi duh muh mool luh yo.

Jo Geum man duh bol soo it da myun,
Nam eun sarang man keum oo suh bol ten deh

Timeless, e byul eun a ni jyo,
han bun eh salm e la myun gi geum bboon in deh, Hold tight, baby,
Timeless, e ga seum eh mood uh yoh,
Soongan eh yul byung churum jam shi man, ah peul bboon e ni,
We both argree…
This is timeless love…

Seh Sang Eul Darah nan ga ji man (ga bo ji man)
Seul peum mah juh ham keh ga neun gun ga yoh?

Nu muh ge li wot dun nal bool luh bon ge deh,
Ma eum bboon eh sang chyu neun ah mool geh jyo

Chun bun eh noon mool sam ki myun, ge ddeh suh ya al geh dwel ka yo (dwe na yo?)
Neh son jab a yoh, dduh na geh mal a yo

Timeless, e byul eun a ni jyo,
han bun eh salm e la myun gi geum bboon in deh, Hold tight, baby,
Timeless, e ga seum eh mood uh yoh,
Soongan eh yul byung churum jam shi man, ah peul bboon e ni,
We both argree…
This is timeless love…

Yeah…baby its timeless…oh baby it’s timeless
Timeless, dol a gal soo it da myun,
Soongan eh yul byung churum jam shi man, ah peul bboon e ni,
We both agree.
This is timeless, this is timeless love.

Timeless (Translation)

No, you can’t let me go.
Even though it’s hard, stay longer.

If I can see you a bit more,
I’d smile for the rest of our love.

Timeless, this isn’t a goodbye,
If it’s one life, it’s now, hold tight baby
Timeless, put it in your heart,
It’ll just hurt for a while, just like the flu
We both agree,
This is timeless love…

I leave with the whole world (I try)
Will the sadness leave as well?

You called me because you missed me,
The pain inside my heart will heal

Swallowing the thousand tears,
Will I find out by then (will I?)
Hold my hand don’t leave

Timeless, this isn’t a goodbye,
If it’s one life, it’s now, hold tight baby
Timeless, put it in your heart,
It’ll just hurt for a while, just like the flu
We both agree,
This is timeless love…

Yeah…baby it’s timeless…oh baby it’s timeless

Timeless, if we could go back,
It’ll just hurt for a while like the flu,
We both agree,
This is timeless this is timeless love
