This was a 3 member group. Back in the early 90's 3 memeber groups were popular. The members of this group were Seo Taiji, Yang Hyun-suk and Lee Juno. They were know for working with an array of different genres. This group was way before their time. Many songs they created made many people upset (parents) due to having heavy influences from gangsta rap and rock music which was very popular during this time in America. Some songs were called unfit due to the lyrics and screaming in the background. Keep in mind this was during the time politicians were pushing for parental advisory labels and blaming music for the wild behaviors of the youth. Source "Come Back Home" by Seo Taiji and Boys This song was a huge hit in 1995. This song has a huge influence from American gangsta rap which was hot back in the USA during this time. 1993: Deux ( 듀스) This was a two member group (1993-1995). They were a well known Korean hip hop group back in the day. These guys hard work was helpful in building what we know as Kpop today. Kpop is not just pop music per se, but it has influences from other genres. The members are Lee Hyun Do and Kim Sung Jae. These two had major influences in the dance and fashion world as well. Source "Turn Around and Look at Me" was a hot song introduced in 1993. You can look at tell how their style as influenced today's Kpop artists. 1996- 2001H.O.T. (에이치오티) They were also known as High-five of teenagers. This was a group of 5 guys. This group was under SM. They were very popular and were the first group in Kpop to produce an album that was brought in a million dollars. Source "We are the Future" by H.O.T. This was another number 1 hit for this group. This song was released in 1998. Wow look at the difference in fashion and technology! 1999- present Fly to the Sky (플라이 투 더 스카이) This is a two member group under the SM umbrella. Unlike the other groups mentioned in this card this group is still active according to sources. Brian Joo and Hwanhee are the members of this group. Brian is American and Hwanhee is from Korean. That itself represents the merge of two different cultures. One big thing about older groups that still are active today is that they all learn to evolve and remake themsleves. This is exactly what this group has done. They were more into techno and very pop like music in the past. However, later in their music journey they began producing more R&B music. Source "Sea of Love" was released in 2002. I couldn't find any older m/v of them! I'm so sorry!

Confessing Your Love with Classic 00's Pop
With all these flash mob engagement videos going around, it has got me wondering why more people aren't using this style when it comes to asking a girl to the movies or finding a prom date?! This is a fool-proof way to confess your love! Do it now!! 1. BBMak - Back Here There will never be anything more romantic than BBMak's Back Here. Nothing. You will melt hearts from the very first line. 2. 98 Degrees - I Do Super cheesy and super smooth, you can't go wrong with Nick Lachey & co's "I Do (Cherish You). Make sure you have the hoop earrings in both ears. It's all part of the package. 3. N'Sync - I Promise You The best part of this is even if you panic and stop singing, your audience will pick up the slack for you. No one can resist singing along with this chorus. 4. Savage Garden - Truly Madly Deeply How can you think of a 90s pop song and not think of Savage Garden!? Guaranteed your crush will want to stand with you on a mountain. (Shout out to "I Knew I Loved You" - I could only put one of you on the list!) 5. Backstreet Boys - I Want it That Way If the object of your love is not jumping into your arms before you hit this chorus you need to find another crush. This one clearly isn't worth it. This is arguably one of the best love song in history (coming from a serious Backstreet Boys fan...) so people who don't appreciate it don't deserve to be loved. 6. Enrique Iglesias - Hero Best way to get anyone to fall in love with you: look like Enrique Iglesias. If you can't: sing like him. 7. Avril Lavigne - Sk8ter Boi I don't care how you do it, but taking a few minutes to change the lyrics to Sk8ter Boi will win anyone's heart. Or at least mine. Call me. 8. A-Teens - Can't Help Falling in Love This doesn't need an explanation. Bonus points if you can get the choreography down too. 9. S Club 7 - You'e My Number One I am smiling like an idiot right now just listening to this song. It's catchy, sweet, and fun. S Club 7 can seriously do no wrong. They won't let you down.
OLD SONGS WILL CATCH YOUR EARS
I love music. Yes, I do. That's all. My friends say songs that you hear define your age; for me it is more to era. My friends are about 10-15 years older than me, but I'm more to the songs that they hear in 80's or 90's than to the songs that my friends who are 10 years younger than me (read Katty Perry, Jessie J, Nicky Minaj,etc). Even, that 70's songs or less still catch my heart. My friends who are younger than me laugh at me when I play these songs or even know what the lyrics are and how to sing it. They will put me in the same taste with their parents'. It is fine and I don't mind. Why do I have to? These songs are everlasting. I will remember how my dad played the songs everytime we were in the car in our way to some place and we sang, my dad,my mom,and I. Everytime we were together he always played songs. Yes, he loved music as well. I have these 10 songs that are always in my mind. Of course I still have hundreds,but I just give us 10 songs that may take you back to a moment that probably the moment when you dated your wife or husband. A moment when you broke up with your lover, or maybe a moment like mine when you were just this 4,5,or 6 year little kid who loved the songs because your parents loved them. Here they are: 1. I'll remember you by Atlantic Starr 2. I don't have the heart to hurt you by James Ingram 3. Hard to say I'm sorry by Chicago 4. Just the way you are by Billy Joel 5. If you leave me now by Chicago 6. Till I find you again by Richard Marx 7. After all by Al Jarreau 8. After the love has gone by Earth, Wind,and Fire 9. Why goodbye by Peabo Bryson 10. Stuck on you by Lionel Richie Let's listen to them and tell me what do you feel?
Is Science Too Hard to Understand? Try Religion
Disclaimer: If you are easily offended and in any way devoted to the Christian faith, I suggest not reading this. Atheism is the rejection of belief in the existence of deities. In other words, it is thinking for yourself. Despite popular belief, I am truly in support of religious freedom and respect all religions until they begin negatively affecting others. Based on my own personal experiences, Christians have used their self-help book to not only revoke basic human rights from citizens, but they’ve also murdered people in the name of it. Christianity instills fear into the minds of those who participate in it. Despite your creed, more people have been slaughtered in the name of religion than anything else, and that is repulsive. If I were to spend one day doing absolutely anything I desired, I would put an end to Christianity. Regardless of who you speak to, Christianity is always going to trace back to one item in particular, and that is my favorite fictional book: the Bible.  It’s typically the most recommended book by Atheists because it is pure boredom laced with ridiculousness. I stand in awe of the all-time novel of false promises and exaggerated claims. Not only has this book convinced people that an invisible man is living in the sky watching all of our actions without exception, but it’s also convinced people that if they don’t follow his list of rules, they’ll be sent beneath the ground to a place of outer darkness where you’ll know nothing besides pain, suffering, burning, choking, screaming, and eternal agony…but he loves you with all his heart.  Nowhere in these commandments is there a condemnation of slavery, genocide, child molestation, or cruel treatment of homosexuals or non-human animals, but it does suggest that a wife is the property of the husband.

I Said No to a Religious Friend as She Lay Dying. Was I Right?
Religion is nothing but a crock used by people to fortify themselves against the frightening prospect of death, that chillingly inevitable end of life.  And when death impends, be that at war, in hospital, or on death row, people cling more desperately to that delusion.  Even nonbelievers walk on eggshells when faced with a dying person. We wonder: Is this really a good time to tread on their sensibilities and disabuse them of their crock? Not long ago I found myself in that quandary.  Someone I knew was dying, and I went to her deathbed to pay my respects. She was a woman who respected me as an elder of the Nigerian community in Cleveland.  She was also something of a protégé, having sought my advice repeatedly as she considered the proper advanced-degree path to pursue.  In my days as a scientific educator—when, also, two of my sons were in the university—I had become something of an information resource for my fellow Nigerians on matters like the choice of college to attend and the discipline of study, and especially how to tap into financial assistance programs available to good students and their parents in the U.S.  I chose to visit her when most of her friends and well-wishers would be at work. I was wary of the perplexed reactions of my fellow Nigerians when it became known that I am an atheist.  My friends told me I would come across much better as an agnostic or a pagan than an out-and-out atheist, for Nigerians are often ranked alongside Americans in sheer religiosity—of the pushy and loud sort.  It’s amazing that the very people whom religion has historically oppressed and denigrated the most (i.e. women, Blacks, colonized people) are the ones who cling to it most tenaciously!  The Nigerian media go so far as to estimate that one in three houses in the cities and townships of the Christian south of the country are used nowadays as churches, chapels, temples, tabernacles, or other places of worship.  “Nigerian atheist” is considered an oxymoron. Those who know I was raised a Catholic—and, to boot, an altar boy able to recite the entire Eucharist liturgy in Latin and English—profess themselves baffled by my apostasy.  Read the full article: https://www.fadewblogs.eu.org/2021/11/I-said-no.html
