The first track feels like summer, Vinx Lin's mini album contains only 4 tracks all of them ballads but all of them nice. Listen to Happy Circle, also only 4 tracks (not including the kala versions), for their indie sound. Lastly if you're liking the last track by Kay Huang, you can hear her other works in OST music from The Hospital and 101st Proposal (China version).

Hyo - 3 - 33 AM
SHINee - 잠꼬대 (Please, Don't Go)

Not much to say for this playlist. The SHINee songs are from their just released Romeo album. If you like the tracks by Dok2 you should check out the rest of the album. It contains alot of instrumentals which I like. Enjoy~

加藤ミリヤ・清水翔太 - Love Forever
w-inds - You Are..
Vanness Wu - Hello Super Star
ONE☆DRAFT - ターミナルII (Feat. Macheri)
加藤ミリヤ・清水翔太 - Looking your eyes

I'm lovin' Micro's Space Rhythm 1 album. The song I included is a nice electronic beat but the album itself is diverse. Also lovin' Utada Hikaru who is trying to break into the US market. You may know her songs if you're playing Kingdom Hearts II. My favorite track on the list though is Vanness Wu's Hello Super Star. He's only an average singer and his Chinese music is hit and miss. However, I liked the three tracks he has in his Only album. Listen to his lyrics in Hello Super Star...does anyone in Japan know what Reeses Pieces are? Hahahaha, I love the reference, he sounds like a nerd. Enjoy~

Also on here is Taegoon's mini album which I'm liking. I'll be adding his Call Me remix on the next ballad list. Finally,I had to add the theme song from "Cinderella Man" to the list because I'm lovin' the drama. Enjoy~

If you keep up with kpop news, 2NE1 has been getting a lot of attention as the new girl band. Their song, Fire, isn't bad but I like Jun Jin's (of Shinwa) comeback song, Hey Ya!. But the best on this playlist is 타루 with Bling Bling. It's a happy track that gets me running. Enjoy~

Mix 020 - TVXQ Love!!!


どうして君を好きになってしまったんだろう?-THE LEVEL remix-
Hey! Girl
I Never Let Go
Mind and Soul
Two Hearts
Try My Love

Ahh, where to start? I'm in love with TVXQ/DBSK/Tohoshinki. The first song that caught my attention a couple of years ago was Hey! Girl. I listened to their other previous albums and wasn't thrilled. A couple years later (now), I came across their concert performance of Proud and I was hooked!!! First their vocals are an almost perfect combination. Second, they are an a capella group. Third, I'm a sucker for boys that cry but that's another story. I think Jae Joong and Junsu's voices are strong and exceptional, they sing live and sound consistent to their recorded songs. I've come to appreciate how hard they work after watching some of their concert performances. They dance and sing non stop for a good 20 minutes and sound great. This playlist consists of only ballads and may have been featured in my previous playlists but this is me showin' love! Enjoy~

Fahrenheit - 你應該被珍惜
Hannah Kim - 呼吸 愛
Steve Chou - 關不上的窗
Huang Chong Xu - 我们的故事
Elva Hsiao - Ba Xin Fang Jin Lai
Wilber Pan - Be With You (feat. Akon)
Wilber Pan - 双人舞
Jia Li Yi - 旋转门
Afalean Lu 卢学叡 - 情流感
Fahrenheit - 默默

I had to put this playlist up right away because I got hold of Wilber Pan's new singles. I love his style (so RnB and his raps are not bad either) and the fact that he is singing Akon's song, Be with You. I initially wanted his single for this song but I'm loving his other song, 双人舞, for it's catchy tune. He's an American born Taiwanese born in West Virginia. Afalean Lu is another artist (I mentioned A Chord Hsieh in the last entry) that made it to the Top 10 Mandarin albums of the last week of April. Thank you to my friends Aoi and Ai for supplying my music addiction! Enjoy~

Okay, I wasn't sure what to call this mix...not my usual hip hop or dance flavor and not what I think of as pop or rock. Anyway, take a listen to this playlist, my favorite is track 3 Fusion's 我的爱呢? reminds me of the band 311. I believe A Chord Hsieh was on the top 10 Mandarin albums for the last week of April. Enjoy~

Zhang Jun Nin, aka Peter Pan, has released another new album called 小飞侠 and is very different from his previous work. I like this album because of the upbeat tracks. You may notice that the last track is a Cantonese song by Hins Cheung. Too bad, his latest album is Cantonese....hope he'll release another Mandarin album next time. Enjoy~

Had to put this out cause I'm loving 2PM's new album. As you can see,I've added three of their tracks on this playlist. The dance version of Again & Again is HOT! The Big Bang track is from their CF for Hite Beer and as SuengRi is underage he is not part of this song. Naco is another artist whose whole album is great listening. And finally Lee Jun Ki you may know as an actor from many Korean dramas. He better keep his day job(: but these songs I've added aren't half bad. Enjoy~

Thought I should make this list just so you can hear how rap is an influence (as if you didn't know if you've been listening to these playlists(: )in Korea. Most of what I picked is more mellow rap, some tracks with singing and rap. Noteworthy on this list is Epik High, They compose and write their own music. Enjoy~

Hello! Took a while to figure out why I couldn't get my URL links to work but with some luck and help from my trusty IT it's been solved. These are some nice mellow songs, stuff I'd classify as R&B but you make that decision. It was hard to choose what to put on this list because these artists have many ballads worth listening to. My favorite on this list? Fly To The Sky...unfortunately this is Brian and Hwanhee's final album together and will part ways to pursue solo careers. Let's hope they decide to collaborate for something in the future. I'm going to miss them but ten years is long enough and I'm wishing them the best. Enjoy~

Of course, I had to include the latest offering from my fav. group TVXQ which released another great album, the Secret Code. Please comment and let me know if you can not download this as a podcast.

By the way, if you're listening, rate the mix at the bottom of each post, I want to know what I should be putting out for you. Of course, comments are always welcome. Enjoy!

Anime? Yes! As I mentioned to my sister, I am an Otaku. I'm a fan of anime, manga, but mostly I'm a wota otaku! but that's another story. This mix is a collection of theme songs from anime me and my girl watch(or read in manga form). The most recognized song of the list I'm sure is the theme song to Totoro. Here are some of the anime the other songs come from: Ouran High School Host Club, Fruits Basket, Naruto, Kingdom Hearts, Totoro. Right now I'm waiting for the latest issues of Vampire Knight and Skip Beat! to come out in English. Why read manga? A lot of the Asian dramas/movies that are popular are based on manga like Antique Bakery, Absolute Boyfriend, Hana Kimi, Boys Before Flowers, and Deathnote. Enjoy!

Do you like the last song? The artist is also an actor, he's the lead in Baby and Me and Doremifasolatido (for you people that were at my house for K movie night!) Enjoy!
