This week is so stressful and filled with exams I have to study for and papers I have to write, so I thought this weeks blog should be fun! I was first introduced to K-Pop (Korean Pop) last spring when my sister-in-law (shoutout to Nicole!) showed me BTS. I soon fell down the rabbit hole and began listening to every group I could find. I cannot claim being a fan for a long time (so no hate) but I wanted to share with you guys my top 10 songs that I believe will make you fall in love with K-Pop! In no particular order of course! Enjoy!
1. Don’t Wanna Cry- SEVENTEEN
Okay, so I am going to try and not make this whole thing about Seventeen, but every song they have is a bop so it is hard not to! Also, their dances are super in sync and complex. If they come to America or I find myself in South Korea, I WILL be finding a show!
2. Shine- PENTAGON
I feel the same way about Pentagon. They have a lot of bops.
3. FAKE LOVE- BTS
Even if you know nothing about K-Pop, chances are you’ve heard of BTS. They are today’s biggest group. They are thought to be today’s One Direction and have taken even the US by storm. Trust me, I looked at their US tour tickets and they were $2,000 in the nosebleeds. When you watch this music video, you’ll understand what all the hype is about!
4. THANKS- SEVENTEEN
I told you.
5. Only one for me- BTOB
This group’s vocals are amazing and that’s all I’ve got to say!
6. Monster- EXO
This song will get you hype every time!
7. Naughty Boy- PENTAGON
This song is really catchy and the dance is a whole lot of fun!
8. My Lady- BTOB
This is my FAVORITE song at the moment. It even beats all the english songs I like right now, its that good. I have desperately been trying to find a music video for this but can’t, so this will have to do.
9. Just Right- GOT7
This is song is so much fun and has a great message! So if you like it, look up the english lyrics. Super cute!
10. Oh My!- SEVENTEEN
So that is my top 10 list of Kpop songs that will make you fall in love Kpop! There are literally hundreds more I could add, but these are my favorite at the moment. (Also I just realized I didn’t put any girl groups in here but there are a lot of good girl group songs as well!) I hope you enjoyed, and here is a video of the members of BTS trying to speak english and RM being very disappointed in them.
