There’s nothing more exciting but to start this website with Girls’ Generation’s debut song.. Into the New World. 

Annyeong everyone!! Annyeong world!! I’m Emji from the Philippines. I’m a kpop fan since 2013. I know.. I’m kinda late 😓 but it’s better late than never, right? 😁✌

So just like any fan, there was a certain IDOL who made me a fan. (Who’s yours?? Comment the name below. 😉) Well for me, it was YOONA of Girls’ Generation. I was (well, I’m still one) a KDRAMA addict, and she led me to this world. The world of KPOP.

Jang Geun Suk was my OPPA back then. I watched all his drama.. including LOVE RAIN.. starring JGS and Yoona. I fell inlove with Yoona instantly. She’s beautiful and really knows how to act. I started researching about this Goddess. And then I learned that she came from a KPOP group, SNSD. 😍😍😍

I searched Girls’ Generation in Youtube.. and booyah!! I GOT A BOY was on the top result. I watched the video x number of times because I was hook!! And the rest is history. 😂

Words are not enough to describe how KPOP helps me in my life. Kpop gives me reason to smile from my tiring work. Kpop gives me reason to save so I can watch concerts and buy albums. Lolssss.. all in all, Kpop is my other world. 

I wanna know your kpop story, too. Comment below!! 💗💗💗

The Red Summer Album by Red Velvet – Tracks Insight

Happiness!! ❤💜💛💚💙

This album “review” / “insight” is kinda late Luvies. Sorry!! 

Have you read my “The Red Summer” album review? If not, you can click this link: The Red Summer Mini Album.

Just a heads up, I am not professional musician and this review is purely an opinion from a kpop fan. 😁

Let’s start! ☉

1. Red Flavor – this title track is very vibrant, catchy, and SUMMERY. There are kpop songs that are not that great if MV and live performance are not seen. But this one, even without MV or live performance, it is lit AF. Wendy and Seulgi’s vocal is daebak! Joy’s unique vocal stood out and ofcourse Yeri and Irene’s rap is the most awaited (we miss it!). There’s an autotune (Re-re-red flavor!) distributed all over the song which will be kinda disturbing to some but not for me. Please watch and like the MV, click the link: Red Flavor by Red Velvet. I rate this 9/10. ❤

2. You Better Know – MY FAVORITE! 😂 Red Velvet’s side tracks are ALWAYS lit. And this one is not an excemption. For me, the song is playing between their Red and Velvet concepts. It is giving us “feel good” vibe. Everytime I listen to the last chorus repeat, Wendy’s harmonization is giving me an “awwww” moment. The performance is as perfect as the song, it’s so sexy! There’s also an MV for this song (click the link), The Red Summer Vacation. Rating is definitely 10/10. 💙

3. Zoo – one word, Tarzan!! As you listen to the song, all you can imagine is forest, sky, animals. The song will take you to different places (zoo!). When Yeri, Irene, and Seulgi sang this in acapella, I can’t help but to love it. By the way, they also perform Zoo during their first ever concert and the choreo is AMAZING! This song is 9.5/10 for me. 💛

4. Mojito – not flashy, relax, and just good feel song. This is the best transition song from Zoo to Hear the Sea. I love how they manage the flow of the tracks very well. For me Mojito is best played during your alone time, sipping your cocktail (mojito!) And just relaxing after the long hours of work or school. 8/10 rating. 💜

5. Hear the Sea – last track from their Mini Album. Yep, there’s only five and we want more! Lols. 😂 This song is kinda emotional. When I listen to it, I imagine myself near the beach watching the sun goes down with my love one or friends. That’s why I love RV’s song, it always bring us to different world. It has an MV as well. It is BTS of Red Flavor MV making. Here’s the link: The Red Summer Memories. I rate this 8.5/10. 💚

The whole album for me is 9/10 (includes packaging and tracks). Missing one point since it’s only mini album. Five songs are not enough to showcase their vocals and over all talent. Honestly, I’m hoping for another comeback this year, early December! Lols. But I know they need to rest so I will be more patient. 😁✌

Thank you for giving time to read. Hope you can write a comment (for my own improvement! Hahaha. 😘)

The Red Summer – Red Velvet’s Mini Album Unboxing

So it is summer time in Korea right now. Woooooo!! 😳 Really getting hot, right? But I am from the Philippines and we always feel the ‘Summer Heat’ like half of the year. Lolss.. 😂😂😂

But one of the best things to do to ease the rushing high temperature is to listen to refreshing summer songs! And Red Velvet’s new mini album, The Red Summer, will definitely make you go.. “Oh yeah Summer.. Game on!” ☉😎

Back Cover – The Red Summer

I preordered the album about a month ago via KpopMart but SM just released it on July 9th. And BOOYAH! I received the package on July 25th. The shipping only took 16 days and I think that’s kinda fast considering it was sent via mail postage. So I’m very satisfied and happy! 😁 Thank you Kpopmart! 🤗

(I will make a separate review on different kpop online stores where you can buy kpop albums and goodies. 😉)

Sealed Package – The Red Summer Mini Album and Poster via http://www.kpopmart.com

Since I preordered the album, I got a chance to receive an official poster as well. I haven’t put that at my wall yet but what I like most about the poster is, it is NOT FOLDED. So the poster retains its crisp texture. No dents and obvious marks of folds. Btw, girls are looking very HOT!! 💓 I have seen this photo online, but having this on-hand is a different story. 👌

Red Velvet’s 5th Mini Album, The Red Summer, has 5 tracks including the carrier single, The Red Flavor. 

The front cover of the album only says, FRUITS, SUMMER, and give me more FRUITS. Lols.. 😂 Red Velvet always gives us quirky and unique vibe. So this album front cover speaks it all. It is weird, unique, and full of HAPPINESS. Booyah! 😁

    The Red Summer Track List and Back Cover

    Look how thick the Photo Book is. I was so excited to open it!! I know most of the photos are now can be seen and downloaded online, but definitely a physical album is something a fan cannot compromise. 😘

    Sealed ‘The Red Summer’ Mini Album. Good things are inside. ❤💜💛💚💙

    Upon opening, we will see cover page of the photobook (same image as the poster). The disc has slices of each fruits which represents our girls. 

    • Pineapple Seulgi
    • Watermelon Irene
    • Grapes Yeri
    • Kiwi Joy

    And unexpectedly.. tadah!!

    • Orange Wendy

    Why SM? Why not blue? 😣

    Lolsss.. 😂😂😂

    But nothing to worry,  since Wendy was able to pull off being “Blue Orange” 😍😍😍

      Slices of Fruits for our Summer 🍉🍊🍍🍇🍈

      And my favorite part.. the photocard!!

      Just so you know readers.. Hahaha. I’m so inlove with Pineapple Kang Seulgi Bear. 🐻💛

      So when I saw Seulgi’s photocard.. I screamed on top my lungs. To the point that my husband rushed to our room to check me out. 😂😂😂

      I’m super duper happy with the random album that I received. Sooo lucky me! 💛

      I believe there are 10 different photocards, randomly inserted in the album. Two photos for each members but only one photocard per album. So, getting Seulgi is only 20% and luckily I have hers. ✌

      Waaaaahhhh!! My HAPPINESS! 🐻💛🍍

      Pink Top, Yellow Sunnies, and Gorgeous Face. Only Kang Seulgi 💛🐻🍍

      Her autograph is A-MA-ZING!! I don’t understand the Hangul though. 😣

      Here are the other photos which are all awesome and visually captivating. 💛💜❤💚💙

      Seulrene. ❤💛❤💛❤

      This one is giving us SNSD’s Party vibe, right? ❤💜💛💚💙

      Flashlights on color coding as well. ❤💜💛💚💙 Again, no blue for Wendy. But that’s OK. Wendy is still blue on Reveluv’s heart. 😁

      Last page of the album. 🌞🌞🌞

      Red Velvet never failed to make us smile and feel good on their music and style. They have Summer concept (just like with other groups) but definitely there’s something about RV that makes them different. Not cutesy or girl crush concepts.. but just Red Velvet concept. ❤💜💛💚💙
      They are really busy nowadays – Red Flavor promotion, Red Room Concert prep (oh yeah!), SMTown concert, and many more. Let’s keep supporting our girls. Fighting! 😉👌

      ‘Holiday Night’ with Girls’ Generation – Yoona Teaser

      How many of us are waiting for Girls’ Generation COMEBACK? I guess.. MILLIONS! 😍

      The QUEENS are back! 👑

      So last night, around 11:00 PM Ph Standard Time, I was watching Red Velvet’s live performance when a VLIVE notification pops up. I read something about, Yoona!! I clicked, and my heart was bursting with happiness. My Goddess Yoona’s comeback video teaser for their 10th Anniversary is now here!!! She’s so beautiful, elegant, and I want to party with her! The clip also shows the ‘young’ Yoona. How she started and who she is now. I almost scream but I need to hold back my voice since my husband is already sleeping. Lols. 😂😂😂

      Upon reading some of the comments, somebody translated Yoona’s narration. She said that meeting the other members of SNSD made it easier for her to achieve her dreams. She also said that she has alot of fantastic memories because of the girls.

      I almost cried watching the clip and also knowing how Yoona felt after being in a group for 10 years. That’s legendary, indeed.

      Here’s the link for the video: Yoona Teaser Clip – Holiday Night

      After watching the clip, I checked my Facebook, and here’s a beautiful image of Yoona. She’s wearing this metallic mini skirt with multicolored sequin top. I LOVE HER OUTFIT! Just right for a Goddess like her. She can pull off any outfit, doesn’t she? ❤

      This morning, another photo of Yoona was uploaded. This one is kinda opposite of the first photo. The first one, she looks like seducing us in an assertive way. 😘 The second photo, she looks like seducing us in an innocent way. 😉

      I want to know the translation of the Hangul on both photos though. I’m curious as hell.

      This comeback will be LIT, for sure. I’m sensing a very catchy song and dance from our girls. This one will be very special since they will be celebrating their 10th year as well.

      I can’t wait for the other teasers!!

      They will be releasing their 6th full album ‘Holiday Night’ physically on Aug 7. 

      The album contains a total of 10 tracks including double title songs ‘All Night’ and ‘Holiday.’
