A friend of mine who's just getting into kpop asked me to recommend some girl group songs to her (because we've all seen that there's usually a lot more boy group related cards here lol). And so! I've tried to recommend a good variety of songs :)
Here's a few songs by female groups or singers that I love
+ a little info about each of them so you can get to know them if you don't already :)
1. Ga-In "Bloom"
I love everything Ga-In does, but this song and MV was just amazing, and I still rock out to this song really often! Ga-In is known to be very comfortable with her sexuality, and while the song is mostly about love, the video depicts a young woman coming to terms with her own sexuality which I think is really cool and should be portrayed more often.
Ga-In is from the girl group Brown Eyed Girls (whose songs I don't love as much) but her standalone work has always been my favorite.
And because I know you'll love Ga-In, I also put the MV for her song "Paradise Lost" on there. Both videos have captions for English!
2. Sistar19 "Gone Not Around Any Longer"
Sistar19 is a sub-group of Sistar, and this song was one of my favorites for a really long time! The dance of it is cute (I didn't include that here) but mostly I'm so impressed by their vocals in this song, and just the beat of the song is really catchy. One of their other songs "Ma Boy" is also worth checking out!
3. Crayon Pop - "Uhee"
I want to provide some variety, so have some Crayon Pop! @kpopandkimchi described Crayon Pop really well once when she said they were MADE to go viral! All of their songs have a really positive message, which I love.
This one is one of my favorites because it takes K-pop and blends it with trot, which is an older style of Korean music. Yes, it's kind of ridiculous, but I love it! If I could join any group, I think it would be Crayon Pop! Plus their dances are iconic.
4. Wonder Girls "I Feel You"
80s vibe + Wonder Girls + cool lyrics = LOVEEEEEEE. I love this song!!! It's been repeat on my phone pretty much since it came out, and I like to sing it as loudly as possible while doing dishes :)
Wonder Girls are on of the "original" girl groups that had world-wide popularity though their member line has changed a few times since then! I still think they're rocking it, though!
5. Red Velvet - "Ice Cream Cake"
This song is like liquid sugar, set to the catchiest perfect pop beat. That's a horrible description but I'm sticking to it!
This is Red Velvet's second song, but their first song with 5 members which is how I like them best! Mostly I just love the song of this song, but the dance is really cute, and the fashion and the look and the style of the MV....it's just a jam!
