Orange Caramel 


Not long ago a friend of mine told me he had seen a good K-Pop group’s video being played between the matches at a StarCraft tournament. He asked me if I had heard of Orange Caramel, which I had :) . I’ve liked them since I first heard them (I like their cute concept), but I haven’t really been listening to them much. My buddy’s interest prompted me to put their new full-length album Lipstick on my iPhone and I’ve been listening to them quite a bit the past week.

The album is good. It contains all but one b-side of their previously released material (I think). My favourite song is probably Shanghai Romance, but their new title track Lipstick is also catchy. It doesn’t have the J-Pop sound that their previous singles have had. It sounds more, for lack of a better term, international.

I actually held one of their CDs in my hand when I was in Seoul last year, but there were so many things I wanted to buy, so I didn’t buy it then.

 

Magic Girl was Orange Caramel’s first song as a sub-unit. I like Orange Caramel. I should listen to them more. But their songs (I’ve actually only heard this one and Shanghai Romance so far) sound more Japanese than Korean to me.

Orange Caramel, a sub-unit of After School, recently returned with the song Shanghai Romance. To me the song has more of a J-Pop feel to it, with it’s somewhat familiar sounding melody. I can’t really place it though. Pretty catchy!
