Girls On Top? Album titles with no imagination

Girls On Top? Album titles with no imagination
From clockwise: 2AM, BOA and Kara.


Some K-pop stars might not be the most inventive or imaginative when it comes to album titles.

More often than not, they seem either inane (think Girls' Generation's Gee and Oh!) or just mind-boggling (T-ara's John Travolta Wannabe and TVXQ's O-Justice.Opposition.Solution).

Then, there are those like BTOB's Thriller, which instantly ring a bell - and not in the best way. LOUD checks out three others which throw originality out the window.


Album: F. Scott Fitzgerald's Way Of Love (2012)

Vocal quartet 2AM's second EP could go down in K-pop history as the album with the most pretentious - and deceitful - title.

It boldly namechecks legendary US novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald, giving it a slightly aloof literary air, which is unique in the glossy world of K-pop. If you scroll through Fitzgerald's list of works (which includes the well-known The Great Gatsby) you'll find that he has never written anything titled Way Of Love. Perhaps 2AM were trying to express how they felt their songs were so powerful they could make up Fitzgerald's latest posthumous prose collection?
