  3. Seriously though thanks for organising this.

    Let's just keep this towards the top of the page shall we?

  4. Ddd if anyone has any suggestions / corrections for the top and how it's organized, let me know. I thought about doing it Girl Group / Boy Group / Soloists, but thought it wouldn't be helpful to let people know who isn't making music anymore.

    Some of these groups in active haven't released since like 2014 but won't say they're disbanding, so if you know someone's in the wrong spot, let me know.
     
  5. f(x) are coming back next year. I can feel it.

  6. You could potentially do a Hiatus section for those that are in limbo but it might end up being too much work to juggle everyone around every time a comeback rumour reveals itself.

    @Sanctuary such amazing work. The graphics, the organisation, the sheer volume of content... Somebody pin this quick.

  8. Thanks for this sis. I need to catch up on my K-POP teebs.
     
  9. I stan @Sanctuary so much. Tell us if you needed help for recommendation songs, sis.



    This thread must be pinned. But I suggest to unpin the ''New to K-Pop?'' thread cause we already have 4 pinned threads.

  10. I asked the subforum's mod to unpin that one and pin this when they have the chance ddd.

    I'm thinking of possibly listing notable groups by debut year and next to their name having suggested songs since breaking down kpop groups by generation seems easiest for people to follow. I was going to copy/paste the suggestions from the other thread, but if y'all have others for groups, let me know.

    For things like soloists, I mainly did what is popular in Korea for a good reference point (see: including Soyou because Some is one of the most successful songs in Korean history), but also included some K-PJ fave (Jessi ddd), so if y'all have suggestions for that too (including what songs the forum best things represents artists), let me know.
     
  11. Could you add the Queen of pop Uhm Jung Hwa to the list of soloists?
     
  12. THANKS FOR DOING THIS, @Sanctuary UNNIE!

    Honestly, the reason why I never bothered with the "New to K-Pop" thread is because it's so... obsolete so a revamp of it is absolutely amazing in my book. I had a plan to do a revamp of it myself but because life is a binch, I just didn't have enough time for it.

    One of my ideas was to ask y'all unnies to write about your favourite K-Pop acts - a simple introduction to the act, essential singles and albums, interesting trivias and shit. We can all 'reserve' an artist we want to talk about then we'll post our 'introduction' post about them here. And then those posts will be linked to the first post of the thread. I hope I'm making sense? ddddddd But yeah I hope we can do this. Dibs on NCT Dream xoxo.

  13. Also, I think we're missing some people here like Lee Hi, Park Jimin and Baek Yerin of 15&, Nakjoon (Bernard Park) and Baek Ayeon.

  14. This is beautiful.

  15. Might I suggest we add the queens of trash to the list?



    Maybe some of our newer members will appreciate them as much as D and I do. kii yeah right

  16. This is incredible going into 2018, great job @Sanctuary !
     
  17. Hello, the 2nd post is updated dddd.

    Let me know if I've missed anyone essential.
    I'll be copying/pasting the suggestions from the previous thread.

    This is your time to post any suggestions you think represent the best of the acts in the 2nd post and I'll link them in the post.

    Also, are T-ARA and Brown Eyed Girls active? I had trouble figuring that out. And do we as a forum consider SNSD active?
     
  18. Maybe we can have a "limbo" section for them and f(x)?

  20. Added both. Let me know if you have different suggestions since I just put their most known / successful singles from what I can tell. It doesn't have to be a single, I just rely on those since they usually have videos and it's easier to get into k-pop for many with visuals.

    I just added SNSD to active. I misread and we don't even have a BEG thread ddd. Let me put out positive vibes for all girl groups that they'll return.
