Hello everyone, I'm aboslutely thrilled to bring to you Round 19 of the K-Pop Song Contest! I originally started workshopping this concept as a separate game in March last year, but I found it always ended up being too similar to KPSC's format, so I never bothered bringing it to the forum. So now I'm so happy I get to see how it goes! So what's this concept you may be asking? You will partner up with one other player of your choosing. You can find your partner privately, or you can advertise in this thread. I will enter last with a teammate as well (@lovechoerrymotion, as they knew the theme beforehand, and made all the lovely graphics for me!). If there are players that still haven't found a teammate, I will pair you up randomly and you can decide whose idea you want to go with - or I can decide that for you randomly as well. If we have an odd amount of players, that one person left over may submit two songs. You might be thinking "@thommyh, a partner, two songs?... What type of songs do they need to be..?" Well... This looks like a lot of rules, but it's simple, trust me!!! You will submit one (1) song each, the condition being that each song title must be the same word, or the word must appear elsewhere in the song title. For example: Person A submits Butterfly by LOONA, and Person B submits Butterfly by WJSN. Karma Butterfly by SNSD would count too. I'll also accept Korean-titled songs (or another language in certain cases), if the word translates appropriately. So Navillera (which means the flight of a butterfly) by GFriend would be acceptable. In another case, Loca by TRI.BE, and LOCO by ITZY (the Spanish word for "Crazy") would also be an acceptable pair - as the words are the feminine and masculine form, respectively. The songs can be from any year by any artist, the only other condition is I don't want y'all to submit songs if the only word in common is, like, "The" or "In" or "This" or something lazy like that. (That said, if you can find a way to have "THE THE" by Rocket Punch included with something... I would like to see it.gif) The word or theme is a first-in, first-served basis, so you better get creative!! I know "Butterfly" is gonna be tough to beat and has a lot of options, but otherwise people will just be submitting twenty songs of it! Songs entered in previous rounds will not be eligible here. Otherwise @eliminathan's round of colours will just get copy & pasted! Artists may have more than one entry, and aren't restricted to one team. If you're really struggling to find a theme that hasn't been taken, I may be able to help with suggestions! so pleek ask!!

Once all the song submissions are in, you will then fill your ballot out where you vote for your favourite pair of songs. Once all the results are in, there will be another voting stage: the pair of winning songs will now compete against each other, and every other player will vote for the song they want to win out of the two! You and your partner will have your own, individual ballots. You and your partner cannot vote for your own or each other's entry in either stages. Obviously, you might hate one song but really love the other in a pair, but please try to cast your votes based on the pair itself. This is to make sure the final stage is more evenly matched!! (It wouldn't really be that exciting if TWICE's "Icon" obliterated Hot Issue's "Icons", would it?) Your deadline to find a partner and submit your two songs, is in five days, January 30th, at any timezone. An extension may be given! After this, I will reveal the entries in the thread, and you will have to select your favourite ten and rank them. I will explain this later once the song list is revealed, but most of y'all know how this works by now.
