It’s been a couple of weeks, but time for another Current Obsession! This week, we’ll be looking into idol group 100% and their recent comeback with their newest mini-album Bang the Bush. I know what you’re thinking, and yes—that is the title of the album. Wondering why there are only five (out of the original seven) in that photo above? Well, you’re about to find out….
This week’s Current Obsession is a beautiful offering from S.M. the Ballad, a ballad group formed by—you guessed it—SM Entertainment. The entertainment company has recently released a new album sung by various singers from different groups under their label in three languages (Korean, Japanese, and Chinese). For today though, we’ll focus our attention on SNSD’s Taeyeon with her solo “Set Me Free.”
Now for something different: Welcome to my Current Obsession, wherein I’ll weigh in on music that currently plays on repeat on my playlist. As a longtime Kpop fan, I’ve always wanted to share my love for the music, whether that be an idol group, a band, a solo artist, or anyone else I fall in love with at the moment (or for years).
Think of this series of posts as an experiment—each week might focus on a different genre or artist, but hopefully the music will speak louder than the words ever could. This week, I’ll be diving into CNBlue, who recently released their newest mini-album “Can’t Stop,” and also appeared on variety show Running Man.
