[Album Review] Seventeen – “17 Carat”

[Album Review] Seventeen – “17 Carat”


SEVENTEEN - "17 CARAT"
Track List:

1. Shining Diamond
2. Adore U
3. Ah Yeah
4. Jam Jam
5. 20


Pledis Entertainment has debuted their new boy band Seventeen. Fans have been able to follow them since trainee days with "Seventeen TV," and now on the "Seventeen Project" TV show. "17 Carat" is their debut mini-album. The 13 boys are apparently split into different teams depending on their specialty.

"Shining Diamond" is an energetic dance track, full of kickin" raps and an exuberant chorus. The hooks come easy here, and it"s catchy as all hell. Despite the fact that it"s fun and loud, it also serves as a 3-minute long intro track, the boys promising they will "make you shine." But the "dance around like [Michael] Jackson" line cracked me up every time I heard it.



The second track, "Adore You," manages to be entirely different from the first -- in a good way. Riding in on a funky bass line, the song starts in much the same way as the first track with whispered hooks. From there it takes on a sort of hip-hop groove, and does it well. Woozi wrote, composed, and produced this track and Hoshi helped create the choreography for the performance. Can"t argue that they produced an awesome song to debut with, catchy, energetic, with the same loud in-your-face chorus as "Shining Diamond."

"Ah Yeah" features the Hip-hop Team: S.coups, Wonwoo, Mingyu, and Vernon. This is more pure rap than the hip-hop/pop fusions we"ve been treated to lately (UNIQ, MONSTA X). There"s a bouncing synth line that reminds me a lot of the rap version of 4minute"s "What"cha Doin" Today?" on Gayo Daejun. It has what I usually ask of rap: confident and to the point.



"Jam Jam" is handled by Hoshi, Dino, The 8, and Jun -- the Performance Team. Appropriately, "Jam Jam" is a dance track with more than a little trap incorporated. I like it. It"s sharp and danceable, and the overused dubstep breaks are thankfully absent.

"20" gives us a more soft-rock groove and an acoustic guitar, sung by the Vocal Team (Joshua, Junghan, Seokmin, Seungkwan, and Woozi). It"s got some odd falsetto quirks, but is otherwise fairly pleasant. I"m not sure what the number has to do with anything, though there is the line "you"re my twenties."



Seventeen is a bit surprising as they"ve got something different from the other boy bands I"ve heard. The album itself is like a sampler of the different styles of each team. Rather than create another EXO or something of that ilk, Pledis has gone down a different road. I"m hoping they keep it up. Variety is the spice of life, and Seventeen fits the bill nicely. They"ve even got their own subunits already lined up if Pledis chooses to go there. This is a strong and unique debut, genre-jumping with some bite to it.

Crown J Asks You to Keep It on the “LOLO” in New MV

Crown J makes his first Korean comeback in years with title track “LOLO (Life of Luxury Only)” off of his comeback EP of the same name.

Released on June 2, the music video for “LOLO” is just as suggestive as the lyrics of the song, which Crown J penned himself. “Can you keep it on the down low, low low, down low” he croons to his second woman. He also slips in references to his past run-ins with the popo, “Let’s get in some trouble, ‘cause I’m done with probation.”

After three year absence from the Korean music scene, it’s rather nice to have a Big Bang comeback that spans months rather than days. As we enter the second stage of Big Bang’s MADE comeback, expectations are still high, though some of the excitement has been lost.

Many fans were, overall, not very impressed with the offerings of Made Series [M], “Loser” and “Bae Bae” (though “Loser’s” lyrics and melancholic tune did sway listeners); and after saying that the first stage of this comeback was just the ‘appetiser’ and that the ‘main course’ was to follow in June, YG’s hype for [A] needed to pay off big time.

[Spoiler] “Splendid Politics” Han Juwan realizes Lee Yeon-hee is the princess

On the 16th episode of MBC"s Monday & Tuesday drama, Kang In-woo (Han Juwan) realized who Hwa-yi (Lee Yeon-hee) was.

In-woo met Heo Gyun (Ahn Nae-sang) and asked questions about his secret meeting with Hwa-yi previous night. Heo Gyun mentioned about Eye of Lady Buddha, "People say it belongs to Princess Jeongmyeong. I don"t know how he got it. But he has it".

In-woo was walking on the street while he was trying to piece his memories related to Eye of Lady Buddha together. He walked into Hwa-yi. In-woo asked her, "Is Hwa-yi your real name? I"m asking you if it is your real name". He asked her again, "Are you by any chance Her Highness Princess? Were you really Her Highness Princess?" Hwa-yi was silent.

Anyone out there who missed Jay Park from back in his crazy, funny and childish days? We love Jay Park as the cool, chic rapper he is, but we don"t mind seeing a bit of his silly side too!


The talented, original b-boy posted a video of him showing off his moves on his official Facebook page. The video starts off with him showing off his talent with popping, locking and moonwalking. And then the dance eventually veers towards the silly side, as he sways back and forth, has some crotch grabbing and eventually falls down.
