It’s the first of the month, and instead of telling you the music I’ve been listening to this week I figured that with this month looking to be a death to us all I would tell you my favorite music videos from some of the groups/soloists that I’m super excited for that will be doing comebacks.
Since Super M is a new group, I just picked my favorite from the seven. Spoiler alert: it’s Taemin. I really enjoy all of SHINee’s music, as well as Taemin’s solo work, but ‘Day and Night’ just takes the cake in being one of my all time favorites. I feel like if you have any sense in my music taste, you’ll know why.
While I’m not on the same bandwagon with ATEEZ as everyone else is (I’m getting there, friends. I am but one person I’ll get there soon), I do still enjoy the group and am excited for their comeback. I really like ‘Wave’ as a fun summer song. Which still fits, since it’s been in the 90’s here.
Ladies Code is one of my top girl groups, and a group I’ve been following for a really long time, I heard their debut ‘Bad Girl’ fairly close to their debut. While it was during my years of following kpop very casually, I’ve always kept up with them in some fashion. ‘The Rain’ is such a great song, and one of my favorite comebacks that I was actively around for.
‘Evanesce’ is not only my favorite Super Junior song, it is one of my all time favorite kpop songs. It’s so good the way the song builds, and all of the guys really do a great job capturing the emotion of the song. Kyuhyun/Ryeowook’s part at 2:37-2:56? I DIE.
Monsta X’s songs are hard to pick a favorite for, because my list is long and love them all. ‘Gravity’ is currently my all time favorite, but it doesn’t have an MV so I had to pick a different one for this list. If you haven’t listened to ‘Tropical Night’ you are missing out. Kihyun in a lower register, Jooheon’s rap is insane, Shownu being the weird dork that he is, Hyungwon being especially extroverted…it’s a just a good video all around.
‘Twenty-Three’ is my go to IU song. I just love it so much. It’s a lot of fun, and think the MV really portrays the lyrics really well.

We were promised this comeback at the beginning of the year, and then JeA came out with her solo, but it’s finally happening and I can not waaaaait. It’s really hard to pick a good MV for them, because they are all good but ‘Sign’ is a classic. And it stars a young Ryu Deok Hwan, bonus!
I’ll admit that while I haven’t done a full deep dive into DAY6 and listen to them casually, I still really enjoy a lot of what they put out. ‘Shoot Me’ is currently my favorite of theirs.
