MY FAVORITE DEBUT SONGS

I have a weakness for debut songs.

I believe so much in first impressions that it is impossible not to judge a group by the song that brings it into the spotlight.

Is true that having a regular/bad debut does not mean you can’t do better later, but It helps a lot if you were succesful from day one… right? You create a large fan base that will help you for future comebacks. You get more media coverage, you are better known and you already have a hit song in your portfolio.

So here are my 30 favorite debut songs. Not all fo them were great achievements for their performers, but I loved them… that is enough to make it on this list… enjoy:

30. Apink – I Don’t Know

So sweet that it can give you cavities. But no one can deny it was a good debut, the best rookies of 2011.

28. Nine Muses – No Playboy

I dont want no playboy…NO! So you have model like girls and a catchy song. Isn’t that what Kpop is all about? haha well no, but they did the trick. This song is very good and I believe it deserved better.

[DEBUT] JJ PROJECT

I know I am terribly late with this, but  I´ve been working my ass off this past two weeks.

JYP´s new act is finally here… a really hyped duo called JJ PROJECT.

I have mixed feelings about this debut, I do not hate them, I do not love them. I just feel they are good rookies in a year filled with them.

They are really cute thought, and is fun to watch them perform. I like JB voice a lot, not the usual high peak note but a soft one, and Jr. has this fun swag ….I can`t help but to find him adorable.

The fact that they are a duo and not a full member boy band makes them different. At first when I heard that they will be a two members act I thought they were going to be ballad-singers, but oh how wrong was I… Now they just need to show why only 2 guys can compete with 6 or 7.

The tittle track of their album is really catchy, kind of makes you BOUNCE literally! A fresh hip hop / kind of rock wanna be song… if that is possible.  All and all is great to show their unique charms, a good song to stand out from other boy bands #NOTBAD. I’m not convinced yet… but I am getting there, lets see what JYP has store for them.

Check out  the MV

XIAH JUNSU FIRST SOLO ALBUM TARANTALLEGRA

Shall I call him XIA? I don’t know!

This album is so amazing… I don’t believe I’ll find words to describe it.

Junsu has been chosen many times now as the best  male vocalist among idols, so It is not surprise his first solo album is so close to perfection.  I enjoy listening it so so so much!

My dear Junsu transforms like a chameleon for each track… delivering fierceness, emotion, and flawless vocals like no other. My very favorite “No Gain”.

The title song “Tarantallegra“ is different from what I was expecting, I wanted a ballad! haha. For  a moment  it brought me back to JYJ. But no, I was wrong, is pure Junsu once you get used to it.  An electronic catchy sound, rich in meaning and interpretation (like everything in this album).

The MV is a little too much for my heart to take. I LIKE IT but.. .IDK…I mean, his dancing is neat and the choreo is great. The scenography is pretty awesome, It is  a great production…but so many “sexy” scenes make me feel a little awkward. Is not like Junsu can’t be touch by girls in leotards with chains… I am sorry I lost my point writing that, I guess that in my fangirl head he just CAN’T. Delusional here.

Anyway check it out:

[DEBUT] HELLO VENUS

V-I-C-T-O-R-Y Girls Da da da da da

Their debut song got stuck in my head for two days now, so they deserve a post 😀

The lovely ladies of Hello Venus, the highly anticipated Pledis girl group project, debuted in style!

Not only the members are gorgeous, but their tittle song is great. A FUN CUTE FLIRTY TRACK!

Not bubble gum cute, fill with aegyo, but playful cute… the lyrics and the rhythm are there to give you an upbeat fun moment.  It is not pretentious, Venus is meant to be a good shallow time. And I like it… already looking forward to see more of them!

They also seem to be having fun in the MV, It is so colorful and consistent with the lyrics…just watch it!

So sad Yoonjo is injured, she is not performing in the debut stages, why would Pledis do that? I mean, It couldn’t be posponed until the 6 of them were able to perform?  Anyway… wanna watch the debut stages? scroll down down down

SNSD’S SUB UNIT TAETISEO DEBUTS WITH TWINKLE

Girls’ Generation‘s first sub unit ever released TWINKLE mini album.

Taeyeon, Tiffany, and Seohyun are back as TAETISEO and looking better than ever!

This was so unexpected, when SME announced the sub-unid I thought it was a ballad thing for sure, and then the teasers pics came and admit it…we all were like WTF?

I know I am a little biased for anything SMTOWN, but I am trying hard to be imparcial here, and I must say I LOVE IT! The mini album is great and it shows each member talents so well.

About the tittle song TWINKLE, it sounds like a KPOP version of Lady Marmalade, with a PG content of course.  I completely like it! Their powerful voices sound amazing and so in sync with the lyrics and the whole vibe of the song.

The MV is so  colorful and pretty, the girls look stunning with every outfit . They smile a lot and flirt with the camera,  the MV  feels their own, like nothing SNSD has delivered before. There is an interesting twist in Twinkle, they are grown ups… so they are not cute girls, but beautiful women, and they target a larger audience, boys and girls equally.

Are those EXO members running around? I am liking this cameo!  … the ad for the perfume NOT SO MUCH!

All and all this is the kind of funky sound and fun MV I like to see more. It goes with me!

Watch the MV and see what I am talking about:

[DEBUT] EXO-M

I know Its not KPOP but Its not fair making a post about EXO-K without making one for EXO-M

It is my blog  and I cry If I want to #lalala

Long story short, S.M. Entertainment create a 12 member boy band, divided it into two groups, one to promote in Korea EXO-K and the other to promote in China EXO-M (almost all the members of this unit are Chinese).

I know I could be making enemies, but I must say I like them better than EXO-K

Not a loooot more, just a tiny few!

I find them so adorable…want to squeeze their cheeks so bad! … I give you

EMO-M:

[DEBUT] EXO-K

This is my first post about a rookie group, and since I am a SMTOWNER….  EXO it is!

Long story short, S.M. Entertainment create a 12 member boy band, divided it into two groups, one to promote in Korea EXO-K and the other to promote in China EXO-M (almost all the members of this unit are Chinese).

After 128,754,654 teasers SME released their new boy band EXO.

The teasers must have worked, because I already know the name of each member… and I take my time learning names!
