I saw this discussion on another site and I really wanted to hear what you were thinking!

We've talked before about songs that are great to show to your friends to introduce to Kpop, but what about the opposite?

What song do you think is a little too wild or different for fresh ears? As Kpop veterans, we're used to different sounds and beats that new people might be turned off by.

So, what songs do you think aren't the best for introducing a friend to this crazy world?!

Here are some of mine:
Doom Dada - Don't get me wrong, this song is great! But I think for fans who aren't used to TOP's voice and style, they might be a little bored or confused where people like us are excited and pumped!
Rookie - You guys know I love these girls more than anything, but this song honestly took me a couple of listens to get into, I can't imagine what it would be like for a brand-new kpop listener! It's catchy but maybe a little too odd ;)
Mazeltov - I still can't believe that this is a real song to be honest haha! The horrible English would make new listeners think that kpop is a little silly I think :/ Maybe I'd show newer ZEA stuff, but defintiely not this song!

What songs can you think of that might be a little too new for first time Kpop listeners?

I don't know. Usually when I first show my friends kpop I literally throw them to the wolves and show them 2NE1 "I'm the Best" and Big Bang "Fantastic Baby". With my nephews though, I first showed them VIXX's Rock Ur Body and my best girl friend Got7's Just Right. So it all depends on what age range they are and what kind of music they like, and whether or not if you know how open minded they are
Red velvet is a good group but rookie is one of those songs I can't listen to for more that 5 seconds. Like the way they say rookie the exaggerate how Korean say r like it is l , like I can't take hearing lookie over and over repeatedly. All their other songs are bops tho
