K-Pop (General Discussion)

  1. To be honest, i wasn't that impressed with the boys initially but its a grower. and the thing is, i can never get sick of the song somehow.
     
  2. Let's see your nipples then.
     
  3. Time Machine is the best MV SNSD have done in awhile. Really glad they changed it up. YoonA is so gorgeous.

    And I keep watching Hyosung's Naughty Girl + Crazy In Love performance. She has it. I need her to go solo!

    Time Machine is so refreshing especially when we've been bombarded with various MVs with dance routines. The shots are gorgeous!
     
  5. That picture reminds me of the Romeo era.

    Unpopular opinion: I want SHINee in a desert, not in tent!
     
  7. Their first non dance mv ever. It's gorgeous.

  9. Re: Korean Pop

    Welcome to Popjustice! There is a Big Band thread floating around, but a general K-pop discussion thread may be a good idea as threads centered around certain East Asian artists tend to go off topic to others because there's no corresponding thread for their peers. I don't know much about K-pop, but I do like Big Bang and some Korean BoA. Also some assorted songs from Epik High and umm... whoever sings D.I.S.C.O. I never really understood the appeal of the girl groups though - I haven't heard one decent song from them so maybe I'll check out some of your recommendations.

    Interesting little fact - the South Korean government apparently is pumping more money into the music industry in the hopes of either expanding it regionally or to counter a drop in sales due to piracy, etc. Not sure of the details, but interesting nonetheless.

    If anyone else has any recommendations feel free! I'm always up for discovering new music.
     
  10. Re: Korean Pop

    Thank you, jknza22. I've ever seen the Big Bang thread, will probably post something there some other time. Do check out Wonder Girls, I think you will like 'Nobody'.
     
  11. Re: Korean Pop

    D.I.S.C.O. is amazing, that could be massive over here! I think Lee Hyiori would do well here too.
     
  12. Re: Korean Pop

    I love Hyori and Ivy! I also quite like Shim Mina, though she's a bit of a flop-star, sadly.
     
  13. Re: Korean Pop

    Uhm Jung Hwa:
    D.I.S.C.O. (ft. TOP) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zAnsjsyEBwk

    D.I.S.C.O. is a nice song but I feel it lacks something. Oh I love the rapper in the song, he's TOP from Big Bang.

    Something I like about the Korean Pop scene is that they have weekly TV music shows (very much like TOTP, CDUK etc.) for artists/groups to perform.
     
  14. Re: Korean Pop

    It's very cute but the chorus sort of freaks me out because they sound black but with an Asian accent ...

    YOU GOTTA CHECK OUT S.N.S.D. (Girls Generation). They're addicting. SERIOUSLY.

  16. Re: Korean Pop

    Hmm I don't really like Girls' Generation much but I love Gee!
     
  17. Re: Korean Pop

    Oh good idea for a thread.. the big bang one died :(
    Korean pop is amazing!

    DBSK/TVXQ are pretty good:
    Mirotic (Yes Sarah Connor does have an English version of this!)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ILz5s0TQm8Q

    Se7en is trying to give America a go apparently.. he has a song with lil'kim which i LOVE:
    (can only find it live!)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sl_aytkTr1o

    But I think the best Korean artist has to be my baby.. Tae Yang from big bang!!

  18. Re: Korean Pop

    Digging up this dead thread, here's a couple of songs which I think are quite good:

    Sori: Newcomer in K-Pop, debut song 'Lips' is very infectious
    Lips - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uvBlUt_rDsY

    Super Junior: Literally the biggest boy band in the world (13 members), first single 'Sorry, Sorry' off their latest album is a nice dance pop number
    Sorry, Sorry - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x5LfIxRJbm0
     
  19. Re: Korean Pop

    My friend is Korean and so I got into K-Pop a little bit.
    I really love BoA but her English stuff appeals a bit more.
    I also really like the Wonder Girls. Especially So Hot. It's incredibly catchy.
    Girls Generation are alright. Gee is really catchy but a little bit lame. They're so cute though.

    That Sori song - Real Lips and Shinee - Love Like Oxygen are so good too. Love the melodies.
     
  20. Re: Korean Pop

    I think BoA is alright; I didn't include any of her Korean songs since she isn't active in the K-Pop scene these days plus I think her Korean/Japanese songs would be too 'sugary' for non-Asians' liking. If anything, I like her old song 'Valenti'. She has a few versions of it and if I'm not wrong, in English too.

    Valenti (Japanese) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HG0SHphpJd0

    I quite like the Wonder Girls. If I'm not wrong, currently they're preparing to break into the US market (like many of their Korean counterparts) which I think they will fail miserably. I really don't see why these Korean entertainment companies are so keen on launching their stars in a foreign market and in one that is not easy to crack.

    I love Gee, although I have to admit it gets annoying after one too many listens.

    I really like 'Lips' by Sori, I think it's really good but it doesn't seem popular.
