NCT DREAM ‘Beatbox’

Oh this is a mood…

Moon Sujin ft. Tabber ‘Right Back’

It’s the kind of KR&B that I eat up. Sorry folks.

Hit It or Skip It – May 2022 Week 4

Look at me working on my vacation.

GOT7 “NANANA”

It’s a nice vibe and catchy hook. Love my boys

LUNARSOLAR “Do You Wanna Get Down”

Really sad this is basically their last song cause it was good!

Kang Daniel “Upside Down”

At first, I was like mid. But the chorus got me

LIGHTSUM “ALIVE”

Talk about cute and actually good. Such a sassy song

BVNDIT “VENOM”

Didn’t think this worked but it did. That pre-chorus is fire

SEVENTEEN “HOT”

SVT does cowboy pop right.

BLANK2Y “Thumbs Up”

Thumbs down.

Pink Sweat$, P1Harmony “Gotta Get Back”

Usually I love Pink Sweat$ collabs but this is boring.

Lazy Unnie’s Playlist: GOT7 – Got7

TITLE: GOT7

ARTIST: GOT7

LABEL: Warner Music Korea

RELEASED: May 23, 2022

The freeness is real! GOT7 has finally reassembled like the best avengers group and we are graced with a wonderful new EP. Gotta give the boys a listen and some love.

NANANA – Title Track

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

I don’t know how I feel about this song. I love it but also don’t at the same time. I find myself really liking the easy vibe it has. It’s a nice smooth song for the summer as well. But I also love a more hard-hitting GOT7. This feels like a song I can chill to at the beach.

Feels like I’m watching one long ass TikTok and I like it.

Truth

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Groovier than the title track but I don’t think it is a strong enough track to contend with the catchiness of NANANA. What this song does do is highlight how GOT7 doesn’t have to do the most to have a decent song.

Drive Me To The Moon

Rating: 3 out of 5.

This feels more like a JayB/JJ Project song being sung by GOT7. I do like how fun and bright the song sounds. But the moment it ends, I forget about it.

Two

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Now it is a JUS2 song being sung. It’s a more sexy groove than the previous tracks and really makes me miss the duo of JayB and Yugyeom.

Don’t Care About Me

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

We’ve made it to the more hip-hop track. I don’t hate it. It has a more trap sound but quickly transforms into a more synth sound by the chorus. I actually can fucks with this song it is more of a soft thud than a hard hit.

Don’t Leave Me Alone

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

I am in love with this song. It’s the hook for me. That melody just is perfect and makes the song really stand out among the rest of the EP. And everyone really sounds amazing on it. No one outshines the other but Jinyoung and Youngjae are probably the closest with the chorus.

BONUS

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Just cause I love their chemistry we must watch.

FINAL THOUGHTS

There are no bad songs. Some boring but nothing is poorly produced. It feels like this was a promise kept between the members and fans and they delivered. GOT7 is going nowhere regardless of how many lanes they go down. It did have a little of a rushed feel because this felt like it was in more of Jay B’s wheelhouse than others. But overall I thought it was a decent release and really proud of them for taking the reigns of their career the way they have. Most are not doing it like GOT7 and kudos to them.

Hit It or Skip It – May 2022 Week 3

And we’re back to a mid level tier of music for the week.

ASTRO ‘Candy Sugar Pop’

Something cute and fun for the summer!

TNX ‘Move’

Nothing special, but I can vibe with it. Like its a try hard heavy edm but has a catchiness to it and Deep didn’t.

ONEUS ‘Bring It On’

OK THEY ATE.

HYO ‘DEEP’

ok hear me out… this is not a song to actually listen to. You put this on when you tryna bust out and tripping on molly. For that reason it gets added to my playlist..

AB6IX ‘Savior’

Idk just not vibing with it…

YERIN ‘ARIA’

Eh.

ONEWE ‘Roommate’

MYDRAMALIST

So when I started this I didn’t know that this was gonna be an actual musical. Imagine my shock when hoes started bursting out dancing. I was like oh. OH. I’m going to be transparent here guys, I don’t have much to say about this. I thought this was by far one of the most unique dramas that I ever watched and the concept of it being a musical was very intriguing.

As far as the story goes, I found it to be pleasantly dull. I wanted to care, I really did, but I just couldn’t. I think it was something about seeing In Yeop playing a high school student at his big old age of 31 that really took me out. I didn’t quite care about the motivations for needed to pass the exams and becoming an adult. I was kinda annoyed by how much the casual mention of underage girls being with older men was. Ji Chang Wook was at his finest here, but the theatrics behind the character kind of reminded me of another person’s particular performance. I was very impressed with our female lead and would like to see more of her work. It says a lot that the moment I enjoyed the most in this drama was the post credit scene of them introducing and congratulating the team.

Overall, I think what I enjoyed the most about this drama was simply the cinematography and the acting. In the end that’s what really stood out. I wish I could offer you guys more in the way of a review, but I cannot. I am sorry.
