Two boy group debuts that actually give me hope for them going forward, at least musically. Also two soloists who haven’t been on my radar for a while making me not regret that fact.
MSG WANNABE – “Do You Want To Hear”
I have no idea what the point is of doing this whole show and stuff and then dropping generic songs.
Super Junior – “Callin”
For fans, I guess? I dunno, obviously they have the vocalists but this is just utterly boring.
BLACK LEVEL – “INFECTION”
Extremely busy debut, but I actually have some hope for them based on the hints at melodies in there.
Cheng Xiao (WJSN) – “Lonely Beauty”
Standard Latin-influenced track, but man she just has no impact as a soloist. Like the song just feels empty.
The Boyz – “Echo”
As far as the aggressive, macho boy group sound goes, this is preferable in the sense that it has room to breathe and attempts a melody. Probably one of the better efforts form The Boyz of late, for better and worse.
Bang Yong Guk – “UP”
TEMPEST – “Bad News”
Actually think this is an extremely promising debut from Yuehua Entertainment‘s new boy group. It didn’t have that one hook/melody to really reel me in completely, but I could definitely see this having appeal.
