Chocolat - Syndrome

I just stumbled onto this track digging through some charts from earlier in the year. It made a brief appearance on the charts in September, but to be honest I've never heard it out 'in the field', so to speak. Which surprises me becuase it's got a catchy chorus and the lead singer is... pretty fucking hot, to say the least.

Sistar - So Cool

Easily the best song of this autumn. I'm pretty weirded out by the dance choreography, I don't really understand it. But this song has gets you with its catchy chorus.

Orange Caramel - Shanghai Romance

Honestly watch this and tell me some melodic fragment is not stuck repeating itself in your brain. Honestly. Love how poppy and clean this track sounds.

Kara - Step

So I'm posting two new tracks from my favourite K pop group. Enjoy the Kara.

Kara - Jumping

Huge in Japan right now, making Japanese versions of all their songs. This is the K original. Enjoy.

Girls Generation - Mr. Taxi

Girls Generation, otherwise known as SNSD (because in Korean their name is pronounced seon-yeo-shi-dae), have released a catchy new track. The video somehow feels sterile compared with some of their finer achievements, like 'Gee'. And they definitely should have worked on an elevated bridge section, this one sounds sunken somehow, like a gray page behind the whole thing. Should have thrown some candy at it instead!

Nevertheless the video is very big-budget in an electronic-displays-are-everywhere kinda way, as is the trend in Korea right now, something I'm rather enjoying. Still, I'm a bit meh about the lack of sci-fi oriented videos... disappoint.

Enjoy the song!
