CRAXY’s challenge to the term “Nugu Group” [MUSIC&NEWs vol.25]

Don’t overlook the nugu group ever! 

It’s quite shocking that a 4th generation girl group used the straightforward expression ‘nugu’ on their title song. ‘Nugu’ is used by the K-pop fans to refer to less popular idol groups. CRAXY‘s ‘NUGUDOM’ sends a message towards the people who look down on the nugu groups!

As (G)-Idle did with ‘Nude’ to combat the sexualization of the K-pop industry shown on internet, the google search result page of ‘craxy nugu’ is now filled with their new release ‘NUGUDOM” instead of the tweets mocking CRAXY, calling them a nugu group.

CRAXY’s live performance is insane, so you must check it right away!

The ‘Salmon Master’ is back!?

Lee Jung Kwon’s performance on KBS talent show <National Song Festival> has hit 5M views on YouTube. The song he chose was ‘Like the Salmon That Tracing Up the River’ and this made his name as ‘Salmon Master’. A rumor(?) that he is controling the wind was made there? Lee recently appeared on JTBC <Sing Again>, took the 5th place by receiving much love and support.

For those who remember him as a ‘salmon master’ who was just a participant that was attending university, they would’ve never known he could also write and compose by himself. Check the new release ‘I’ll be your everything’, self produced by Lee Jung Kwon.

Adios Audio

March 24, 2023

Adios Audio started their career by performing at various venues including Busan International Rock Festival, and debuted in 2016 by releasing the single ‘Bam Bam Bam’.

The harmony between solid piano melodies and emotional top lines is the band’s identity. Check one of the most popular single ‘Make One’s Way’ here. The frontwoman MAHO reminds me of the most influential band ‘Jaurim’’s Kim Yoon-Ah. Her charismatic performance and powerful vocals are iconic!

The new single [Ping] is the first album released in two years since [The Guide for Tomorrow]. Check how the band expresses the sense of melancholy.
