This month’s underrated K-Pop releases contain singles and albums from June 25 through July 29. JQ and 1sagain return again with new upbeat hip-hop singles while Taeyoon, Jinri, and indie singer-songwriter June Bug debut with their first singles. During this month, there were many catchy musical releases, especially from Illy J, Melody Day, and Alley Cat. Many of these artists showcased strong vocals and addicting melodies.
Melody Day and S.E.A Time showed us emotional ballad tracks bound to win over your heart, while So Hye, June Bug, and Healing Project shared indie-type songs, perfect to relax with in this summer sun. Illy J, Taeyoon, and Hami feature rapping in their title songs that are quite refreshing for the music scene.
There are many rookie artists who should be looked out for in the near future like Ella and Jinri. They possess soulful vocals that are quite charming. We even have a trot release by Yun-Ah. The music video for her title track “Sorry Sorry” is a good watch if you need a little laugh.
