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.
