Stan Loona

Usually with mainstream pop albums (including K-Pop), I don't expect much in terms of content. It's mainly about how much I enjoy what I'm listening to overall. I'm happy to say that this sub-unit project from LOONA was a really fun and enjoyable listen! This is the type of dreamy, nostalgic, feel-good and somewhat unique pop music that mainstream pop from the West has been severely lacking!

In terms of K-Pop, Max & Match is just one banger after another, with also a pretty ... read more

I must admit that I didn't expect to take any pleasure from such music, but it's fucking amazing. These songs have so much cool energy and are so joyful that I might become a fan of It haha.

The energy brought in this album is immaculate, I've never had so much fun (in a long time) with a project and I would recommend it to everyone in order to feel what ... read more

First of all, I would like to thank @dumbmoonlight for recommending this record to me, I know absolutely nothing about K-Pop and this mini album is certainly the best way to get into the genre.

I always told myself that K-Pop was not a genre for me. I had my prejudices, I had listened to some BTS albums and I thought that my opinion on this genre was unchangeable... I was wrong. Because yes, WhatTheFunk has loved a K-Pop album. I guess there's a first time for everything ... read more
