R.EF’s FAREWELL FORMULA!

Now, before anyone starts thinking questions, this group debuted back in 1995 with hit song “Farewell Formula”. Group consists of three members; Park Chul Woo, Sung Dae Hyun, and Lee Sung Wook.

R.EF went on a haitus in 1998 and since then released a spontaneous song “Love is Hard” in 2004 and has not performed as a whole since.

(From this point on, click on the pink titles to see video performances!)

(The Fangirls from the 90’s tho!!!)

R.EF has inspired many artist to spread the message to not be sad from a break-up and to be happy!  This song has made many cameos in dramas, reality shows, competition shows (popular being Immortal Song 2), showcases, and music covers!

Korean Pop Idols also participate in showing the love~

And last but not least,

ZE:A & R.EF’s SUNG DAEHYUN

(That is correct! Former member of R.EF, Sung Daehyun!!!)

An episode of Immortal Song 2 aired with the theme of “Heartthrobs of 90’s are back!” had former member,  R.EF’s Sung Daehyun (located in the middle), as a guest and contestant with boy group ZE:A (surrounding Sung Daehyun) for this episode’s round! Sung Daehyun has shown to us that he still quite comedic and goofy and wishes for everyone not to be sad when going through a break-up or a sad moment!

This is a very much recommended song in yo’ playlist, if I do say so myself~
If I were to compare a real life situation, it would be an ended-small-term relationship where both parties are trying to move on in a happy way–

ANYWAYS~

This has been XO, BRO!

~Until Next Time, TURN UP!

Jam #1 – ‘I am your Boyfriend’

That is right!

Today’s song is Boyfriend by BOYFRIEND! Also known as their debut song! BOYFRIEND debuted back in 2011 with their first album titled “Boyfriend” and the release of their first Music Video, featuring  Bora (of label mate group, SISTAR).
Boyfriend is a six member group consisting of members (Oldest to Youngest) Donghyun, Hyunseong, Jeongmin, twins Youngmin and Kwangmin, and maknae Minwoo. This is also a group where half of the members are 95-liners!

This song conveys the image of cute, flirty and playful love in an innocent level! Not to mention that these boys try to help their band mate get the crush of his life’s attention!boyfriend-7

This tune gives off an all-smiles aura as soon as the song begins. The guitar chords being stroked delegates already a nice beat to follow, then suddenly withing a 5-10 second intro of guitar playing, snaps can be heard and BOOM 

ENTER THE RHYTHM.

You will see yourself bobbing your head up and down and swaying side to side. The beats are pretty simple to jam and listen to, too! I always find myself in a trance with how cute this song is. It also contains a small rap portion that makes the beat even more amazing!

Anyways, as for me comparing this song to a real life situation…let’s see….
It would be a cute couple that has just started dating and have to remind each other that they are a couple, all while acting cute!

So go ahead and open up a new tab! NOW.

TURN UP, TURN UP, JAM TIME!

TURN UP, TURN UP, JAM TIME!

AYYE!!! What is up my fellow K-listeners!? Or should I say, ‘K-Jammers’??
HAAA, just playing, just playing!

The name is XO and I will be handling the music tab! I will be providing music suggestions/recommendations, song questions, random song comparisons to everyday situations and what we all like to feel every once in a while…

THE FEELS.

Now, to make things clear, I, myself, am not a music major nor an experienced person in music. I am measly saying things by the basics! If by any chance someone requests for my opinions or such (questions, sides of stories etc.) I will gladly contribute to the suggestion upon request!

This section tab is made for those who wish to have a new song in their playlist or a wide scope of music, genre, artist, knowledge or just TURN UP.
Occasionally, throw in some nice fun activities for the day!

My taste in music….

BOIIIII, let me tell you.
I am an avid listener to ALL genres. I have no favorite, but I do like to say that I get krunk with K-Hip-Hop, JYJ being my ultimate favorite group! Let me give you a range to what I listen to though, from boy group BOYFRIEND to ballad ladylike LYN all the way to sexy Nine Muses taking it to krunk Illionaire bringing it back up to old SECHSKIES to cute CRAYON POP to solos, duets, collaborations, osts, Jazz, Opera etc. I LISTEN TO WHATEVER NOISE IS BROUGHT TO THIS WORLD.

For the FEELS part…
I’m pretty sure everyone experienced them from watching music videos…but!
Have you ever felt the FEELS through music?

IT’S TWICE AS AMAZING OF THAT IN A MUSIC VIDEO.

 

Psychologists convey that when video and audio played at the same time, there is a small percentage both are being taken in. So, if you listen to a song individually from it’s visual, you will be finding yourself hearing the lyrics and beats more precisely…and you’ll probably be like this…

.noooo

and of course that one high note once in a while you find in the background…

No, but, being real here, music is a universal language that sounds the best when shared. Don’t you guys feel the thrill when open-minded people listen to your taste in music and enjoy it? Well, that is exactly my goal. To share, and show how well music can be delegated even if it isn’t your type or theirs! There is nothing wrong with jamming to a trot song when you’re all hip-hop nice! And definitely not wrong to show others that you listen to K-Music. Isn’t it more fun to turn up with others than yourself?
So with that being said, BRUH, LET’S TURN UP TO SOME KO-KO MUSIC!!

~Until Next Time, Turn up!
~XO
