Top 10 Kpop Boy Groups songs of 2013 – Hyde

Happy new year!! (Yeah, I know it’s 1 day late…) Anyway, 2013 has been the best year in my whole life and it has been a great year for Kpop! So many new groups debuting and so many great comebacks!
I’m going to list my top favourite 10 boy groups songs in this post, and I think I will post “top 10 girl Group songs” tomorrow ^^

AlphaBAT – AB City

AB City is their first Single and I absolutely love it!! I love how the song seems like an “Badass” song in the beginning but then J:eta comes with his Aegyo and sings “ABCDEFG” , and yes, I fell for him and his aegyo in the MV..

Teen Top – Rocking

Even though they released 2 other songs this year Rocking beats them all, it’s my second favourite song from them! Crazy is their best song, but Rocking almost knocks it down… It has the best beat and party feeling to it and I love the choreography in the Music video. It’s simple and funny.

VIXX – Hyde

What can I say? It’s definitely one of the best songs of 2013. I love the dark concepts that VIXX is Always experimenting with and the Jekyll and Hyde concept is on of the best concepts of all time. Wearing Black to express the evil and White to express the good. The dance choreography really shows these 2 sides of one person and the lyrics makes up to it.

SHINee – Everybody

2013 was a great year for SHINee with many comebacks but the best comeback must be Everybody. I love how the dubstep fits in to the Music and the choreography is so cool! They literally threw Taemin up in the air haha. I love the dark colours mixed with the SHINee colour and the uniforms they are wearing *___*

I really liked Dream Girl and Why so seroius but Everybody has something special that beats those 2 songs..

100 % – Want U back

First time I heard this song was when my friend showed the MV for me and I didn’t like it at all but after some days I found myself humming on the song and I started to love the song. As an 100% fan from their debut days I already knew that they had powerful vocals and in this song it really shows and it makes the song even more perfect. I love the dance and the “party” feeling of the sound.

B.A.P – One Shot

One Shot is definitely B.A.P’s best song of all time. It has meaningful lyrics and the MV concept makes up to it. I cried alot when watching this MV like the most fans did but somehow it made the song more special. One thing I always loves about B.A.P is that their sound is “badass” but in every song there is also a “kinder” side to the sound, I don’t know if that was an good explaining but I think you know what I mean haha.

EXO – Growl

“The High School concept” as I call it, is the thing I like the most about this MV apart from the choreography. It’s filmed in “one cut” style and the song is one of the best songs from EXO.

Boyfriend – I Yah

Also an “High School concept” wich I totally fell for this year thanks to Boyfriend and EXO. But this has more darker feel to it and ever since Boyfriend released Janus and I Yah I have been a fan of them. Iyah gives me the feeling of being proud over myself in some strange way and the song always makes me feel better if i’m feeling down.

Beast – Shadow

And again, a darker MV. Haha i’m really into this kind of concepts… Beast is a group that I have listened to for a very very long time and I have seen them grow up trough the years and Shadow showed a more “grown up” side of them. Shadow is a song I can listen to when i’m sad or stressed out and it always helps me to feel better.

VIXX – On and On

This is seriously the best song of 2013 and it’s also one of the best Kpop songs out there. It only took me the first 30 seconds of this song to fall for it. The concept, the choreography, the makeup, the beat and the vampire look. SERIOUSLY, i’m a sucker for this kind of things… I love vampires *__*  Ever since I heard the song for the first time I always dreamt of seeing the performance live one day and the dream came true! I saw VIXX live in Sweden and they performed with On and On, so this song really means alot to me. ❤

SBS Gayo Daejun – Shadow

I had planned to celebrate the New Year in Stockholm, but I got sick the last minute and had to stay home. So what’s better to do, than cheering myself up with some Kpop?

SBS Gayo Daejun started 8.45PM KST, and here it started 12.45pm. I enjoyed most of the show, even though I didn’t see the fun in the parodies of The Master’s Sun and The Heirs. But the whole concept was really cute and I loved how they all came together at the end (and on the stage) to sing the song together. To me it was emotional, and I couldn’t stop myself from smiling!

Also, SHINee, EXO and Taeyang did an amzing job, even though I would’ve liked it better if Taeyang sang Ringa Linga instead of G-Dragon. Their stages were .. special, and I liked how they tried new things. I loved how half of EXO showed up first, and how you could see how the other half were hiding, waiting for their turn. SHINee’s stage was cool since it moved above the crowd, but let’s be honest here; BEAST did it first. And what would you expect from a duo like G-Dragon and Taeyang? Nothing less than sitting on the stage. The only thing, in my opinion, to make the whole stage even better, would have been if Daesung, Seungri and TOP showed up unexpected.

But my favorite performance has to be Block B’s “Very Good”. The make-up, the clothes, the hairstyles, the hair colors… everything! I loved it! Block B, to me… they’ve been through a lot, and I admire them for getting past it, putting it behind them and coming back with such a powerful and beautiful song as “Be The Light”. “Be The Light” is nothing like “Very Good”, but I love both of them.

My 2nd favorite performance was pretty much unexpected. I usually don’t like her as an artist, I’ve always had a hard time for her groups music. And I’ve never really gave the other a chance. But when it’s Queen Hyori, I guess I have to give her a chance?
I did, and I ended up loving their performance together. Hyori and CL did an amazing job, and I loved the intro for bad girls. And when CL later on came back with “My turn “, it was really well done. 

Overall, I really liked SBS Gayo Daejun, and I’m looking forward to MBC’s on Tuesday! ~

SBS 2013 Gayo Daejun – Hyde

showToday was the second show for the “New year show” in South Korea out of 3 shows with the last show being broadcasted on 31th December.

Most of the big groups performed today such as EXO, SHINee, 2PM and BTS but my favourite performance was by VIXX.

VIXX – Voodoo + On and On

This time they performed with a remix of Voodoo and On and On that had been put together in one song. There is seriously nothing bad about this performance. The dance for Voodoo switching perfectly to On and On without any problems and the remix of the both songs were the best.  When some groups remix their songs it sometimes ends up with sounding totally different from the original song but the remix VIXX performed with still had the original sound there.

The beat had more power and they had the “typical” sounds in the background from the original version of the 2 songs. It fitted perfectly to the stage performance. It was also their first time performing on this show and they owned the stage!

F(x) – Shadow + Rum Pum Pum Pum

One of my favourite songs from F(x) is Shadow from their latest album. I was surprised over that they choose to perform with Shadow.  It’s a really good song with a “cute” sound to it.

They also performed with Rum Pum Pum Pum which is the main track from their latest album. It was a really good stage and F(x) always have wonderful vocals live.
