Annyeong! Reporter Taemi here! This week's theme is appreciating underrated kpop groups. I choose 'Hyukoh' & 'Say Yes' because I feel like they don't get a lot of attention and there's many people who probably have not heard of them before. Their music is beyond amazing! Like so many people are sleeping on them, they should wake up because they are the real deal too! What I like about them is that their music is so unique from the others. They are very talented & handsome!
Hyukoh is a South Korea indie pop and rock band who formed in May 2014 and is under Artist Management Company DRDR from 2014 & present and under HIGHGRND from 2015 & present. HIGHGRND is a sub-label under YG Entertainment. Epik High's Tablo is the president of HIGHGRND. Anyway There are 4 members, Oh Hyuk, Im Dong Gun, Lim Hyun Jae, & Lee In Woo. They released their debut EP '20' on September 18, 2014. Hyukoh have experienced success in the underground music, selling out small venues! They were on the the popular variety program "Infinite Challenge" and they received many positive feedback. They broke top ten of the Billboard World Albums Chart two months after their release of their second mini album '22'. So far, Hyukoh have won 7 awards! ● 2015 - 7th MelOn Music Award ~ -Top 10 Artists- ● 2015 - Naver Yearly Ranking~ -Most Downloaded Song: "Wi ing Wi"- ● 2016 - 25th Seoul Music Awards~ -Performance Culture Award- ● 2016 - 30th Golden Disc Awards~ -Best Rock Band Award- ● 2016 - 5th Gaon Chart K-Pop Award~ -Discovery of the Year (Indie)- ● 2016 - 13th Korean Music Awards~ -Newcomer of the Year- ● 2016 - 13th Korean Music Awards~ -Best Modern Rock Song: "Comes and Goes"-

I think they are seriously on hiatus because I have not heard from them in a long time but I think you should still hear their songs and watch their mvs! 1.) Not A Dream -Omg love this song so much! it gives me chills throughout my body! my feels!! These guys are really sweet, kind, and handsome! They will make your heart melt! 2.) Get Out -This song and MV is crazy good! This is more of their wild, free, & fun loving side of them!
