Welcome to the official K-Pop discussion topic!

 

 

Feel free to discuss everything from favorite K groups to your biases.

If you're new to the genre or have a casual interest, you're most welcome here.


When did you first discover it, have you seen any K groups in concert? Got any fan art, fancams? This is the place for it all.

Whether you're a SONE, Blackjack or V.I.P please refrain from starting fan wars or flaming others biases,

that's not why I made this thread. We all have one thing in common, we're crazy about K-Pop! I encourage users to stay on topic.

Q. What is K-Pop?


A. K pop or Korean Pop is a fusion of dance, electronica, electropop, hip-hop and R&B that originated in South Korea.

It is mainly known for its bouncy melodies to vibrant fashion overload and it became widespread in 2012 when Gangnam Style went viral by artist PSY.

Below are some music videos from K groups you may have heard of:

 


 

  • Mister Pink, Fireman, Mr. Scratch and 3 others like this

Currently listening to Rise from Taeyang, this album was on repeat for most of my summer last year. for those who know me, they know that I'm seriously YG biased. :p

I've been kind of trying to get into K-pop but I've yet to find a band/musician that I really like. Care to recommend me stuff?

I didn't like most of the k-pop songs I listened to, but there are some pretty good songs I enjoyed listening to (mainly the instrumentals)..

 

 

This one reminded me of Nujabes a bit.

I'm glad you appreciate the music.

Beenzino appeared on Epik High's 2014 album and collabed with Dok2 a few times. He's definitely raw talent and I hope he does a collab with IKON who are debuting next month. :D

I really liked this one. Didn't understand the lyrics but I like the flow and the beat is pretty good.

Does anyone here have fave tv/concert performances?

These two below are definitely my favs, I obviously have more than two favorites but it won't post more than two videos.

'Come Back Home' unplugged ver from 2014



I love the Reggae-ish twist on this version of 'Lonely

Slightly disappointed in CL's mv, YG could've put atleast a bit more effort into it.

CL is making a solo debut in the US any time now. She's already filmed 2 MVs apparently.

I'm ready to share my queen with the world, as for Doctor Pepper she featured in the song with Diplo, YG was not involved.

CL has some Korean verses in her upcoming EP/album so she's still keeping to her Seoul roots.

 

Diplo stated that CL is working from the ground up, which is honestly the best way for her to go. She's already gained a lot of attention from Doctor Pepper MV and there are a few confirmed track titles for her album

 

YG did confirm 2NE1 are making a come back stateside but it won't be this year. Park Bom (whom I miss a lot) is still out of the lime light, Minzy and Dara are doing their own thing in Korea. CL has promotion to do for her album, I'm not expecting a 2NE1 album anytime soon.


Edit: finally found the instrumental.

 

I'm just here trying to rap in Korean with Mino's part and failing miserably. :p


 

I love everything about this video.
