So I think an introduction to Kpop playlist should be specified to a person's taste....and that varies of course but I'll just go with my taste and we'll see where that gets us lol. After all, I figured out what I didnt like in kpop from the list of kpop introduction songs I was given by my bestie. But I also found a few gems that I can't live without. Believe me it was a looooooooooooong list. I was bound to find something I liked. And of course because I'm an overachiever.... I went way past the 10 song limit. Bad llama...
Big Bang__ Bad Boy Of course I had to start out this list with the song that I finally gave a chance on the very loooong list my bestie gave me. I love Big Bangs videos and the way they're shot because they find ways to showcase each member and you get to see a distinction between them....makes it easier to be like "Ohhhhhhhhhhh I like that one" to new fans. And this song gives you that feeling of Have I heard this before?? Which can quickly turn to Why haven't I heard this before.....I need more (ʘдʘ╬) Taeyang__Ringa Linga This beat is sick....there's no denying. And YBs on my bias list....of course he's on here, duhhh. Jay Park ft Simon Dominic and Gray__ Metronome Jamworthy....classy....but still sick. You all know about my love affair with AOMG... I can't praise them enough.
EXO__Call Me Baby Now I was torn between EXO songs to put on here but chose this one because my 6 month old LoveBug can't get enough of it. She dances to it which is the cutest thing to watch. Kids know a good beat when they hear one. And truth be told I put this list on for my Babygirl who's 3 and she in turn danced all afternoon. HOTSHOT__Watch Out I had to add this in....just released but no denying it's good stuff that errybody should appreciate. From the beat to the way the MV was shot....its just awesome and it really is quite beautiful. I just had to because they're my favorite rookie boy group from last year.
F(x)__Red Light This entire album is soooooooo good. They don't have a typical sound and I love that. Electric Shock was on the intro list I was given and tbh....I hated it but it grew on me. But this....idk what it is about the beat and such... it's just awesome. And they're wearing eye patches and eyeliner on one eye.....Come onnnn these gals are fierce and fearless. 2NE1__Falling In Love One of my personal favorites and my girl proclaimed it her song lol. The ladies are looking flawless as always. The beat has this reggae feel to it that just screams summer and summer screams fun. Yayyyy this song is fun.....next!
Epik High ft Beenzino, Verbal Jint, Mino, Bobby, and B.I __Born Hater This song is pretty much an intoduction to mainstream Korean hip-hop. Lol Sooooo many featuring artists....but that's the reason I love it. The song has this old school hip hop feel...it's a solid beat. If there's anything I've learned about Kpop.... it's that the beats trump all....they're hella clean. *side note to my fanman buddy....is it part of the video concept for them to embody the seven deadly sins? Tablo as Sloth, Beenzino as Greed, Verbal Jint as Lust, Mithra as Gluttony, Mino as Wrath, Bobby as Pride, B.I as Envy.....orrrrrrrr did I just work this out in my head like this by overthinking? Bc that's what I thought at first.....granted I've only seen the video a few times. Dok2 ft Loco and Crush__No More This is like my anthem. No idea how many times I've been asked "Who is this? Is it a cover? It's really good." HAH no bish no ￣ˍ￣ Then I pull out my iPod....and say "Oh you gonn' learn today".
Rain__Hip Song Its Rain....and that choreography tho.... that's all I gotta say. Oh and the song is pretty catchy too Hahahaha. Rain__ It's Raining You just gotta learn you some Rain if you're gonna get into Kpop. Kim Hyun Joong ft Jay Park__Unbreakable This choice needs no explanation....great song. Jay Park. Great visuals. Shirtless ripped men doing body rolls in a downpour complete with red lighting.... yes. Yes please.
Crush ft Gaeko __Hug Me I love love love me some Crush....his voice is just so passionate. And can't go wrong with Gaeko on a track. San E ft Bumkey __ Body Language This hook is just so damn catchy. Bumkey's voice.... I just love it. Bummer he's gone away for the next 5 years....I was quite depressed over this news (╥_╥) Zion T. ft Dok2__ Click Me Zion T....he's original. His tone....his style....just everything about him is totally his own. I've had this track on repeat for days. And Dok2..... <3 I mean what can I say about him? He kills.
Lucky J__Can You Hear Me This group is HOT. Their rendition of Run Devil Run had me actually pulling a Dok2 and yelling "Turn up!" somewhere in there. This song is addicting....Jessi has called the song typical but honestly this is exceptional. BTS__Let Me Know I could've picked any song from them but this one just pulled me into their album. Its got this ethereal sound and kind of transports you to another place. It's hard not to sing along or make some kind of connection to the song despite the language barrier. Jay Park__The Promise And I hafta wrap it up with a slow jam from Jay Park....just for the ladies. As my cousin said...."I have no idea what he's saying but damn that boy can sing to me all day any day."
Big Bang__Fantastic Baby This song is practically iconic....and it's universally a jam. I'm sure there are aliens out there with this on blast. Okay i lied.....now Im done. *Drops the mic* Tagging as always my main fanman @MattK95 *picks up mic again* Again...I wanna apologize for going over the limit by 8 songs....I get carried away.... 죄송합니다. *bows out*
