And of course it’s coming in late again *sighs*
Warning: This month’s compilation is quite LOOOONG, I had to take out most of the singles. It’s like every artist just had to release some kind of single, duet or album. This month’s list apart from the comebacks and debuts it also includes projects and duets.
After the sorting out the change in members, they are back with a mini-album DAY & NIGHT and also the Japanese version Mamma Mia.
2. San E
San E is back in the house with Body Language feat. Bumkey. I have this song on replay since it got release lol!!! There’s nothing special about it, but it’s San E feat. Bumkey, that’s enough reason for moi.
3. Zhang Li Yin
This is an artist signed under SME. She came back with Agape featuring Tao of EXO and f(x)’s Victoria, which was released on the 2nd of August in China. Zhang Li Yin’s voice is heavenly!!!
4. Clazziquai Project
Another single from Clazziquai Project – Madly. I like the choreography and what’s with the trumpet guy’s nose? O.o
Japanese BAP’s fans most have been quite excited as they dropped their 4th Japanese single titled Excuse Me.
Bangtan Boys bacame all WILD & DARK for their latest album. They also released series of webtoon characters of each member.
7. Orange Caramel
After School’s sub-unit released two MVs for My Copycat and continued their promotions on music shows. Their MVs tend to leave me wondering who exactly thinks up the concept lol!!
The group’s awaited collabo with Duble Side-kick has been released titled Bingbingbing (One Way), they also put together their first mini-album. Bingbingbing sorta fell below anticipation in every way – lyrics, dance, setting….. -_- Below is the full mini-album BING BING BING.
9. Super Junior
I actually thought they would release the Mamacita’s MV along with their 7th album on the 1st of Sept……. I obviously thought wrong. Anyway, I am happy they are back. They dropped their 7th album MAMACITA. If I am not 3 different version of Mamacita has been released, promotion at it’s highest lol!!!
10. Ladies Code
They also made a comeback with Kiss Kiss.
YAAY!!! They are back with a mini-album SECRET SUMMER and the title track is I’m in Love. BTW, Han Sunhwa is doing a good job on Marriage Not Dating, a Korean drama.
The girls are back with Mask. All I can say is the MV for Mask is very much better than Mariontte, check it out below.
13. Sunny Hill
Sunny Hill releasing SUNNY BLUES (1st album) with Monday Blues as the title track. Did anyone get the wordplay there? XDD
The 9 – member boy group is back with Oh My Gosh.
15. Lip Service

23. Park Jung Min
Park Jung Min of SS501, I have barely heard about him in ages, he’s also joined the bandwagon and dropped a mini-album SUMMER BREAK.
24. Jo Bum Jin
I actually have no idea *scratches head* if this artist is making a comeback or just debuting, but from the looks of the album (BJ GROOVE Vol1) I will go with the former.
25. Kim Woo Joo
Totally wow!!! I saw his picture and I was thinking rookie, but then I looked him up and he is NO rookie. I think he made his debut sometime in 2005 or maybe not, but according to his profile on Jpop Asia it seems so. Anyway, he’s back with a single – 이 도시의 여름.
This artist looks like an underground rapper to me, just saying. There’s little info about him, apart from various collabos he has had. He dropped his mini-album THE VGINS. OMG!!! This is freaking gooood!!!
27. Jo Kwan Woo
He’s been around since 1994, that’s quite a long time. He’s back with a single Sad Romance
OMG!!! I absolutely had no idea she released a single. Closer was released on the 6th and it features Wu-Tan.
29. Hyungdon & Daejune
These two comedians/MCs/artists dropped their mini-album – DARK GANGSTA RAP Vol1. Below is a song from the album, I couldn’t find a link of the full album on YT.

Rare Breed ft YDG – single. I don’t think there’s need for words when it comes to Vebal Jint. But YDG on the other hand, I had no idea he was into hiphop until I saw clips of Show Me The Money and this single.
40. Joe Rhee
Album -ilLUSTrations, I think the title track is ilLUSTrations…… Should I call this anagram of illustrations? Ich thinks it clever.

3. Wheesung & Bumkey

4. Big Byung (Jackson, N, Hyuk & Sungjae)
I was a bit skeptical about this single, Stress Come On, since Hyungdon was going to produce it. But it turned to be ULTRA funny and good actually.
5. Lee JongHyun (CN Blue) & Melody Day
I have liked Melody Day after listening to the OSTs they sung, especially All About for The Master’s Sun. Here they are again with JongHyun, another k-idol I like with Young Love

Lena Park has such a wonderful voice, meawhile this is my first time hearing about Don Spike.

1. Red Velvet
SME’s latest new girl group made their debut on KBS’s Music Bank on the first of August with Happiness.
Four Ladies make their debut with Move after putting out 3 teasers.
Uri maknae is rapidly becoming a man XDD. SHINee’s Taemin made his solo debut by releasing his first solo album ACE, which really delivered, especially the title track Danger. If I am not wrong, he promoted 3 songs actively – Danger, Ace and Pretty Boy (Ft. Kai of EXO).
After so much teeeeeeeaaaasers that lasted for almost a year, they finally finally made their debut. I finally accept YGE is the god of teasers!!! They debut with a full album 2014 S/S, it has double title track – Color Ring and Empty. Empty was co-composed by B.I, Bobby and MinHo. Also, it’s likely members of Team B will debut soon through iKon. I am positive about B.I and Bobby 😀
LABOUM is girl group under NH Media and Nega Network consisting of members Haein, Solbin, Yulhee, Soyeon, Zn, and Yujeong.Tthey made their debut by dropping an album – PETIT MACARON.
6. Park Boram
Superstar K2 contestant Park Boram made her debut with Beautiful feat Zico
4TEN is Jungle Ent.’s new girl group consisting of members TEM, Hyeji, Eujin, and Hyejin, they made their with Tornado. Something seems to be missing, the rap is actually better than some of the K-girl groups out there.
