Hello dear WHI friends and readers,
how are you?
Back in June I was in South Korea for the first time and it was one of the most beautiful experiences in my life. Since I was there, I didn't have time to make June's playlist, so here I am with J, a playlist of my favourite korean songs of both June and July.
Here's the link of the playlist. If you want,listen to it while you are reading my article :)

Let's start this new music Journey~

Gaho - FLY

idol, kfashion, and kpop image gaho, plt, and planetariumrecords image
Gaho's voice is a blessing. Seriously, he could sing a chapter of a chemistry book and still it would be an amazing song.

Stray Kids - 부작용(Side Effects)

gif, stray kids, and side effects mv image
Side Effects has a unique charm. With its hardcore rythm it teleports the listener to Stray Kids' dimension. I love like Stray Kids experiment different styles and beats and they master them all. These guys are overflowing with talent.
Suggested tracks of the album:
  • TMT

SAAY - ZGZG

gif, idol, and kfashion image
Saay has a powerful charisma. She puts all herself in her songs taking part in the production,lyrics and even the choreography. What a great artist!

NCT DREAM - BOOM

gif, jaemin, and jisung image
Every time NCT DREAM make a comeback I'm amazed by their growth as artists. Their songs are very different from each other, but they are very easy to listen and I always find myself singing them.
Suggested tracks of the album:
  • STRONGER
  • 119

BewhY - 가라사대 (GOTTASADAE)

rapper, khiphop, and bewhy image asia, asian, and hip hop image
If you haven't listened to this song trust me and give it a listen. Bewhy is a rap god, the way he rides the rythm is something that is not common. Not only the song I chose, but the whole album is a piece of art. What an artist!
Suggested tracks of the album:
  • The Mainland (feat. Simba Zawadi)
  • The Greatest (feat. Verbal Jint)
  • CHALLAN
  • Transcend (feat. C JAMM)

ZENE THE ZILLA - Missed Calls (feat. C JAMM)

kfashion, korean, and rapper image
I really like the way ZENE THE ZILLA makes trap, so I had a good time listening to his new album, the first since he joined Ambition Musik. Also I was really impressed to listen how good he is at rapping on a boom bap beat; you can check it too if you listen to the album track YAMANGKKUN freestyle featuring Superbee and DJ Wegun.
Suggested tracks of the album:
  • YAMANGKKUN freestyle (feat. Superbee, DJ Wegun)
  • Du-rag (feat. EK, Owen Ovadoz)
  • Bank Account

KNK - SUNSET

knk, heejun, and jihun image
Sunset is one of the songs I liked the most in July. Sexy, classy and charismatic, KNK have it all!
Suggested tracks of the album:
  • FADE

Monsta X - WHO DO U LOVE? (feat. French Montana)

idol, kfashion, and kpop image
Can we talk about how good Monsta x are at singing? Even the rap line can do it amazingly!

NIve - Liberated

This song and NIve voice have the power to heal pain.

DAY6 - Time of Our Life (한 페이지가 될 수 있게)

gif, Jae, and kpop image
DAY6 always impress me. Every time they have a comeback I never know what to expect from them, yet they always meet my expectations. Wow, this is DAY6 power!
Suggested tracks of the album:
  • For me
  • How to love
  • Best Part

WOOSUNG - FACE

Woosung has a really charming voice, so I really appreciated his debut mini-album.
Suggested tracks of the album:
  • MOON
  • lonely

SUMIN - [OO DA DA] EP

gif, kfashion, and korean image
I think that Sumin voice and music style are one of the most unique in these days' korean music. Everytime I listen to her music I can explore the worlds she creates trough it: it's a wonderful experience! Through the video I posted in the playlist you can listen to a medley of the album. The MV is very artistic, I suggest you to watch it!
Suggested tracks of the album:
  • SHAKER
  • LOVE DANCE
  • POCKET (feat. Omega Sapien)
  • STARDUST

SULLI - 고블린 (Goblin)

Image removed
I didn't expect such a style from Sulli debut. I was positively impressed and the song is very good.

Yuna, Jay Park - Does She

Yuna is not a korean artist, but this song featuring a korean artist, Jay Park, was too good to not put it into the playlist. Hope you will like it.

ITZY - ICY

gif, girls, and group image
Girl crush concept has been shaken up since ITZY debut. I love confident women!
Suggested tracks of the album:
  • DALLA DALLA - DallasK Remix
  • IT'z SUMMER

CHUNG HA - Snapping

EUN JIWON - 불나방 (I’M ON FIRE) (feat. Blue.D)
