Underrated Kpop Boy Groups You NEED to Know About!

Almost every Kpop fan knows our beloved favourites like SHINee, BigBang, and Girls' Generation. But underneath all these famous idols and companies are tons with unrecognized talent! Let's take a look at ten boy groups who need a whole lot more lovin'!

Check out the girl group version HERE!

HOTSHOT

It's extremely sad that I haven't met many other HOTSHOT fans yet. They are practically bursting with talent! There are a total of six members, each with their own bundle of surprises! Some of their songs include Midnight Sun, Take a Shot, and I'm a HOTSHOT. Get to know these boys HERE!

AlphaBAT

I'll have to admit, these boys have a clever group concept. Who ever thought having them named after the Greek alphabet would add so much charm? Check the out! I guarentee you'll be coming back for more. Some of their songs include AB City, Tantara, and Surprise Party. Get to know these boys HERE!

100%

I don't know much about this group, but I do know enough to say they definitely need more recognition! Please show these boys some love, as they really deserve it. Some of their songs include Beat, Want U Back, and U Beauty. Get to know these boys HERE!

History

History is no doubt one of my favourite kpop groups. Their songs are outstanding, and have their own unique touch. Not to mention, the five members each carry a fierce and sexy vibe in every frame! Some of their songs include Psycho, What Am I to You, and their latest one, Queen! Get to know these boys HERE! Follow @LeeKyungil 's History collection HERE!

UNIQ

I simply cannot express my love for UNIQ. These boys know exactly how to steal your heart within one glance. Seriously, you're missing out if you don't know who they are. Some of their songs include EOEO, Falling in Love, and Luv Again. Get to know these boys HERE! Follow @MadAndrea 's UNIQ collection HERE!

SPEED

Don't even get me started on these boys. They have unbelievable synchronization in their choreography, their vocals and rapping are killer, and their songs have such catchy beats and choruses! Some of their songs include Don't Tease Me!, What U, and Look at Me Now. Get to know these boys HERE!

LU:KUS/L.A.U

I'm fairly new to this group myself, but I wanted to include them because they are sooooo underrated! All the members have beautiful visuals and talent, so please check them out! Some of their songs include Break Ya, Beautiful, and So Into U. Get to know these boys HERE!

Romeo

I'm extremely happy these boys got more recognition after being one of the guests on After School Club. However, they are still (unfortunately) on the underrated list. Though they are fairly new, Romeo is still an adorable group! Some of their songs include Target and Lovesick. Get to know these boys HERE!

MADTOWN

Catchy beats? Eyecatching choreography? Alluring music videos? MADTOWN's got it all! You may have heard one of their songs, but they've got many more that need to be heard! Some of their songs include YOLO, OMGT, and New World. Get to know these boys HERE!

MYNAME

This boy group have songs that get stuck in your head for days! The members are all so gorgeous, and their talent will literally knock you off your feet. Please give them a listen, I promise you won't be disappointed! Some of their songs include Just Tell Me, Too Very So MUCH, and Baby I'm Sorry. Get to know these boys HERE!

And the rest are on my to-do list: meaning I've been want to check them out I just haven't yet 😅😅👍
UNIQ and History😍
History yep yep yep 😏
I think I'm becoming a fan of history tbh but I'm trying not to fall for kyung il but he's so hot it literally hurts my lil fangirl heart 😂😂 he's so tall though I just want to hug him omg BUT THEN AGAIN YI JEONG IS TRYING TO PUSH KYUNG IL OUT OF THE WAY and I also Just recently became a fan of boys republic 😍😍😍
I think you can try to avoid Kyungil for a while, but I tried because I didn't want any more biases. I failed. But HISTORY and Boys' Republic are both soo good. :)
@PassTheSuga It's so sad how so many amazing groups debut, then disband so quickly 😭 Hopefully all the other groups stay with us for as long as they can! 💕

My Sister Describing K-Pop Groups, Plus Memes
So my older sister, 29, got into k-pop about 6 months ago. She used to give me a ton of shit for my K-pop love. So it makes me happy when she wants to listen to it or add it to play lists for parties. But the thing is, she never remembers names of the groups or members. So she has great ways of describing them to me so I can tell her what to look up for songs she likes. "They sound like legit hip hop, just in Korean" aka BTS She's a huge fan of West coast rap. Like Coolio, Khalico, and Warren G. When I told her they were recognized as talented and worked with them, she was all in. I showed her War of Hormones first and she was hooked. She's definitely into them and knows who BTS is. Except the members names... "The group with way too many guys too keep straight." or "The one that does Monster and I love that one." aka EXO She'd ask if she was consistently calling them attractive or cute to make sure she wasn't getting them too mixed up. She really likes a lot of their music. The only song she didn't care for was Call Me Baby. She's a fan though. "Bunny alien" group aka B.A.P She knows them now. Not their individual names, but she knows them by looking at them. She basically had to learn who they were considering they're mine and her son's all time favorite group. She likes a few songs. "They're all tall, it's Chinese, they do like...everything" group aka UNIQ The fact they were all 6 feet or close to 6 feet tall really surprised her. "Is this how they decide who becomes famous or something? Like if you're tall they find you and make you an idol?" She's funny. I showed her singing clips, choreography videos, beatboxing, and told her about their random talents. So she basically refers to them as the does everything group. She knows there's Koreans in the group, but since the company they're under is Chinese, she goes with that. "That fast rapper in BTS, the one that's always going hard" aka Suga aka AGUST D She finally knows and recognizes Suga and even knows his other moniker AGUST D because she loved that album. She actually gets irritated when my nephew pronounces Suga wrong. She likes her some Suga. Especially since he loves producing. *bias alert "abs guy with a baby face in BTS" aka Jimin I basically killed her by showing her the dance battle that Hobi and Jimin did at an award show. When he tore his shirt off, her jaw dropped. So he's abs guy until further notice. She loves when he does the flip over Hobi. "The really good dancer in BTS, the one that raps in a, uhm, different way" aka J-Hope We all know he sounds a bit different than Suga and Rapmon. He's got very different inflection and speech patterns that make him a pretty unique rapper. Better believe she loves 1Verse. "I wanna fuck that rapper" aka Rap Monster of BTS Yeah...she really liked him. Like immediately. Pretty sure he was her first ever bias especially since he was pretty deep with his solo stuff. But she doesn't get biases yet. "Aaron Carter" aka Seungyoun from UNIQ aka Luizy The platinum blonde hair and haircut in the Listen To Me choreography video is all she remembered. But after hearing and watching Recipe, she doesn't see Aaron anymore thank goodness. Now she knows Luizy. She sees a real rapper and thinks it's cool he's working on the lyrical and production side of music at such a young age. "Baby-faced Deer" aka Luhan She learned his name pretty quick. Mostly because of the song Lu. But she really loves his music, which always makes me happy. She's constantly and randomly going, "Luuu, Luuu." That's when she doesn't replace it with, "Moooo, mooo." "The tall one from the huge group that I found really attractive. Lots of bass in his songs" aka ZTAO She knows his name and loves his singing and rap. She'd say he was attractive in each video we watched. She was happy she was consistently calling him good looking and/or sexy. In Call Me Baby when he was standing with the other guys she lost her shit. "He's so fucking tall!" "The singer who's like a cute awkward penguin, you know, the short one" aka Kyungsoo of EXO When I showed her the Open Arms cover, she saw him and thought he looked so awkward compared to all the others. He swayed nervously and stared at the floor. She thought he was cute in all the music videos. When I said people call him a penguin, she says, "Yeah. I can see it." "The one that was cute until they dyed his hair way too blonde" aka Kai of EXO She thought he was cute, but Overdose changed her mind. She thinks he's cute in every other video, so long as he doesn't have the super blonde hair. She's pretty entertaining and has a different way of remembering things that totally crack me up, because I always know precisely who she means. Hope you got a chuckle out of these too.

Kpop is Actually Born from Korean Protest Songs
Alright so I'm a total history nerd, I majored in East Asian Studies and eat stuff like this up. Read the full (long!) article here - I will try to explain it basically, but its really worth the read. Here we go: It all started with Japan. As you might know, Japan colonized Korea eventually trying to erase Korean culture all together on the peninsula. In the very beginning though, that wasn't the case. Japan was willing to share Korean and Japanese culture, and the Japanese and Korean elite often spoke together and traded pop culture. Japanese elite brought over Western-influenced music because of their connections with the Western world (which Korea didn't interact with other than missionaries at the time) The Korean elite wanted to be modern and successful like Japan, so they adopted this music (called Changga) as their new favorite genre. (You can hear a lot of European influences in early Korean music...) This is where it gets interesting. The Korean elite wanted to be independent of Japan. They wanted Korea to stand alone as a strong nation, not pushed around by China or Japan anymore. They stared the pro-independence movement. Now, most revolutions like this would turn to traditional music, traditional culture to strengthen the country (for example, Korea would use ancient Korean songs to protest the Japanese occupation) but the Korean elite didn't! They wanted Korea to be strong, and to be strong they felt like they needed to modernize - ie be like the West. They used this Changga music (ironically brought to them by Japan) to protest Japanese rule! To this day Korea is always trying to "keep up with" the Western world so that they can be considered modern and powerful. Most things that they do is to modernize and stay trendy because that is how the country has always defined strength. But then, Japan decided to make money off of that... Japan had seen its first real pop music hit in 1914. People were buying records, following tabloids, and really getting into pop culture. That was really the birth of the Japanese music industry. In 1926, Korea had a similar experience. A song called the "Death Song" appeared, sung by Yun Shim-Deok. The singer committed suicide with her lover right after the song was released and the story made HUGE headlines. It was chilling, 'romantic,' and dramatic. Korea ate it up. Japanese record companies came in and started selling the record, selling over 50,000 copies! (In 1926 that number is totally insane!) You can listen to the death song here: The record industry after that was run mainly by the Japanese yakuza and their partnered Korean gangsters. The industry was set up very similar to how it is now, with entertainment industries doing everything in-house (SM has specific song writers that only work for SM, and their artists are actors, singers, models, etc) This is also why so many Kpop artists become actors...because even back in the 1920s musicians couldn't make enough money so the real way to make a living was through acting. That still stands today. So, today's Kpop is based off of this first "Korean pop" hit (the death song) AND protest songs against Japan. So when people say that Kpop is just a copy of Western music, they're sort of right but not in the way that they're thinking. Yes, its a reflection of Western culture, but the reason behind it is that Korea has been fighting to be recognized as a modern, powerful force to be reckoned with since the early 1900s. They want people to know Korea is strong, modern, and a country to look up to, not look down upon. So the next time someone tells you Kpop is a lame copy of American pop - give them this little history lesson. Again, PLEASE read the full article - its so interesting! HERE it is!

Who's UNIQ? Well Basically...
They're awesome, but there's more to it. Several of you may know some of these facts but I want to introduce the group and its members in a series of cards since a lot of the people who wanted to be tagged didn't know much about them! This first card is about the basics. After I get all of the intro stuff out of the way then I will get to the more goofy and creative posts! But first, let's talk about the group! Profiles: Yixuan, Sungjoo, Wenhan, Seungyoun, Yibo Group Name: UNIQ • Name comes from the English words “unique” and “unicorn”, this stands for their unique idol presence and unicorn pride which is a symbol of a pure spirit Official Website: http://uniqclub.com/uniq/ YouTube Channels: • UNIQ channel has all their videos like making of, MVs, and dance practices https://www.youtube.com/user/officialuniq5 • UNIQ Global has their Chinese and English songs https://www.youtube.com/user/UNIQGlobal Labels: Yuehua Entertainment, with Starship Entertainment for Korean promotions Official Debut: September 15, 2014 Members: 5 • Zhou Yixuan - Chinese • Kim Sungjoo - Korean • Li Wenhan - Chinese • Cho Seungyeon - Korean • Wang Yibo - Chinese Singles: • Falling In Love- Their debut single, "Falling In Love", was released on October 20, 2014 in both China and South Korea.
