K-POP

For this who, what and why Wednesday I am going to discuss one of my very favorite forms of entertainment and that would be music, but not just any genre of music today we’re talking kpop. I had heard it before but never really payed attention much it wasn’t until i discovered the ulzzang makeup style that I became absolutely obsessed. First I liked the japanese gyaru style then I saw the ulzzang makeup style and I liked it better so I would watch youtube videos on how to achieve the look and playing in the background was Ma boy 2 by Electroboyz feat. Hyorin of Sistar.

I was immediately hooked. I had to find the video to watch which I put above and from the super cute boys, pretty girls and just really fun happy styling of the song that’s where I fell in love with kpop. I know I know I’m a little late it’s been around for so long now but that doesn’t make me love it any less. I used to work all by myself in this big building on the weekends and when I got there I would go in turn everything on put my phone on Pandora and put it on my kpop station and blare it as I worked. Pandora is what really helped me find other bands that I like as well as just browsing around on youtube. Everyone has their favorite groups and so help you if bash their bias lol but my favorite of all time is Big Bang.

G-dragon is and will always be my bias he’s so cute and incredibly talented I could go on and on. This group as a whole though is what makes me like it. I have yet to find a song that I don’t like and all of the members personalities are so great. I also have a favorite girl group and that would be 2ne1.

2ne1 2

I know keeping it in the yg family. I love this group so much just like big bang they have the cutest personalities and seeing them interact with each other is very entertaining. They are all so talented but my favorite from this group is Park Bom. She has a power house voice and is so beautiful. She’s my inspiration when it comes to my hair and makeup 🙂

What makes me love kpop so much is just the amount of work they really put in and all of the dances to the songs are amazing. The songs range from high energy getting pumped up to really soft and sweet emotional songs. It has a bit of everything I love all rolled into one phenomenal genre. Below I’ll list my top 10 Favorite songs for the guy groups then the girl groups. They are in no particular order except for the number 1’s. If you have a favorite song or group just leave me a comment I love discussing all that is kpop 🙂 -Kelly

  1. Are we the same person?! I got into kpop earlier this year because one of my friends kept bugging me to watch Eat Your Kimchi. A few videos in, and I was a goner.

    Big Bang is my favorite group! And GD is my favorite in Big Bang too! (Although I don’t know about his image lately…)

    • He can be a bit out there I prefer him best when his hair is black and in that wolf style Taeyang usually has and in normal street clothes. Or no shirt at all lol. And I love Simon and Martina! I watch their videos all the time 🙂

      • I don’t even mind when he’s being weird, he’s just been… REALLY out there for a while. I’m not too worried though. He changes his image every two seconds, so this one probably won’t stick around for long.

        I actually haven’t watched his weeks Kpop Music Monday yet! Maybe I’ll go do that now. 🙂

      • I loved his looks in michigo especially the Mohawk and when he’s rapping really fast that little bob thing he’s got going on lol (insert one of a kind I LOVE IT) I haven’t watched in a while I go a few weeks then sit on YouTube for hours watching them.
