With this post, I’ve finally caught in terms of haul posts. So, you’ll be seeing my October haul sometime in November. This month’s haul was a mix of new releases and some old ones. I also got my very first concert merch purchase shipped to me this month!
As for the comebacks for the month of September, the one that I was most excited for was FT Island’s Korean comeback with their 7th Mini Album “Zapping”, which I pre-ordered and got myself a signed copy as well. This was an important comeback for the group as it was the first time they put out an album as four members and the last comeback before their military hiatus starting with Lee Hong Gi enlisting last September 30. I will miss FT Island as a group, but I will continue to support the individual activities of the members before they enlist themselves, and will wait for them to come back. Hopefully it won’t be too long of a wait.
“Zapping” was a great album, and a great way to send them off to their hiatus. I can’t believe they’ve been doing music for over twelve years now!
Another one I looked forward to was Seventeen’s comeback with their 3rd Album “An Ode” with the title song “Fear”. Although I do prefer “HIT” over “Fear”, I loved “Fear” as well. However, I didn’t think that Pledis would want to try to break my wallet by actually giving us FIVE different versions (each with a ton of random things inside), which made me just a bit stressed. However, I decided to pre-order one version before getting the rest, and I’m still waiting for it to arrive.
I got a little bit into VIXX recently, which means I’ve only listened to their music, but because of that, I did look forward to their digital single “Parallel”, and I was not disappointed in it at all!
I also got into Oneus, so I looked forward to their comeback on September 30 with their 3rd Mini Album, “Fly With Us”, and the title track “LIT”. While I loved “Valkyrie” and “Twilight” more, I liked how “LIT” was able to showcase a brighter and more fun side of the boys. I also loved the entire album as well!
For many multifandom fans, this October is going to be a pretty stressful month, what with Monsta X and Super Junior making comebacks, and with SuperM debuting as well. For me, the comeback that I was waiting for since August is ONF’s comeback, which just happened on October 7. They came back with their 4th Mini Album “Go Live”, and with the title track “Why”, which I was very excited for as MK actually co-composed it, U co-choreographed it, and Wyatt helped write some lyrics for it. It’s also a big milestone for the group as it will be the first time that they’ll be promoting a new album and song with just six members, and I’m glad that it didn’t disappoint at all.
AB6IX made a comeback on that day with their 1st full album “6IXENSE” and the title track “Blind for Love”, which was great as well. I was actually waiting for this comeback to see if I would really stan them, and after this, I can say that I am a fan.
Stray Kids also released a digital single on October 9, “Double Knot”, which I highly enjoyed as well. And because of this, I actually just went and pre-ordered the limited edition of their upcoming “Cle: Levantar” mini album which will be released at the end of November.
Yesterday, EXO released the Japanese single “Bird”, which was good, and is a big thing for me as I just recently started liking EXO’s music.
Lovelyz’s Kei also made her solo debut, although I have yet to watch the MV and listen to her album. More on that in next month’s post!
Others that are making comebacks that I’m keeping an eye out on include N.Flying,Day6 and We In The Zone.
Now, let’s take a look at what I got in the month of September.
1.VeriVery’s 1st Single Album “Veri-Chill” (Official Version)
So, despite the fact that it only had two actual tracks, I went and pre-ordered BOTH versions of Verivery’s “Veri-Chill” album. Also, somehow, I managed to get two clear cards and two photocards even though your only supposed to get one of each. I got Minchan’s Wanted poster, Minchan’s and Hoyoung’s clear cards, and Dongheon and Yongseung’s photocards. I was happy to get Yongseung’s photocard as he is my second bias in the group and I’ve never pulled him before. This album also came with a poster.
2. VeriVery’s 1st Single Album “Veri-Chill” (DIY Version)
Again, I managed to have two photocards in this album although it only supposedly should come with one. Minchan really loves me as I always pull him, and it was no exception for the DIY version of Veri-Chill as well. I pulled his post card and I got Yeonho’s and Kangmin’s photocards. This also came with a poster.
3. Seventeen Ode To You Concert Merch- Shirt (Joshua)
When Pledis put out photos of the “Ode To You” concert merch, I knew that I was definitely going to get Joshua’s version of the Ode To You shirt. I didn’t expect it to be soooo big though! So, my plan for this is that I’ll probably modify it a little so that it can fit me better. I’m excited to wear this when I go to their concert when they come here to Manila in February 2020!
4.Golden Child’s 1st Single Album “Goldenness” (Red & Black Versions) (Pre-Loved)
I wasn’t kidding when I said that I had fallen head over heels for Golden Child, as I managed to get a bunch of Golden Child albums including the Red & Black versions of their 1st Single Album, “Goldenness”. Also, as much as I love each and every one of them, I have decided to only collect the random items of my four biases- Jangjun, Joochan, Donghyun, and TAG. For the red version, I got Bomin’s photocard and Jangjun’s ticket.
For the black version, I got Jibeom’s photocard and Y’s ticket.
5. Golden Child’s 2nd Mini Album “Miracle” (Version B) (Pre-Loved)
I also got myself a pre-loved version of version B of Golden Child’s 2nd Mini Album, “Miracle”. It came with Jang Jun’s student ID, Seung Min’s name patch and TAG’s photocard.
And that’s all I got for the month of September!
‘Till the next haul!
