Korean Pop music is horrible... and unfortunately catchy. It's so awful that you can't help but hum along the tunes. Could it be because they always play the same top 10 songs, over and over, for a year? Apparently Korean pop is big all over Asia, with well-known boy-bands, a la Backstreet Boys- young boys that make all the middle school girl's swoon. All-girl bands, such as the Wonder Girls, are also pretty famous: they were featured on Perez Hilton. All Korean songs have a key element: the lyrics are in Korean, but there's always a (cheesy) chorus in English.
Check out K-Pop's biggest hits... a.k.a. the music I HAVE to hear all the time:
ShinEE- they have the funniest dance moves
Enjoy MC Mong with English subtitles
And the hot Wonder Girls, "So Hot"
Now... after listening to some horrid things, check out my boyfriend Aaron's Quietly Loud for some really, really good playlists, mostly from the Montreal music scene. Great picks ;)
