    Not only do we get an incredible comeback, with a song that I really think manages to please their entire fan base, but Red Velvet is also heading stateside for a mini tour

    Didn't know there was a thread for K-pop. Since I'm unaware of any other SBAF'er currently living in Korea, let me chime in a little...

    TBH I wasn't much into K-pop until 2-3 years ago, when I realized Korea has its share of talented singers while watching singing competition shows on TV. I think it's a shame most so-called "K-pop fans" outside Korea tend to think of only idol groups such as BTS, Twice, Red Velvet or Blackpink, when K-pop as a genre encompasses much more than that.

    N.EX.T was one of the pioneering experimental rock bands in Korea, and I consider their 2nd and 4th studio albums two of the greatest albums in the history of K-pop. These are some of their well-known songs from those albums.

    These might be on opposite ends of the kpop spectrum, but Im enjoying them both.




    This one feels alot like a jpop song, but i love it

    Dunno how popular is this and the group above. But I like their music.

    well, the new BlackPink is kind of a huge disappointment to me..



    But good thing came out of it, I discovered one of their older tracks, As if it's Your Last, in the recommended section, which is pretty good

    The track sounds is an exact replica of DDD. They usually come out with slammers but this feels like no effort was given.

    I ended up running into Suran on my YouTube playlist and really ended up liking her vocals.

    I felt exactly the same, even the choreography was super similar to dudududududu. I don’t like many of their songs though, basically just Dududududu and now also As if it’s Your Last, most of their other singles don’t do much for me.

    I do love Solo by Jennie though, she needs to just go it alone and abandon BlackPink

    All this BTS nonsense had me looking for another one of their songs I actually like, since until the other day the only one I liked was Mic Drop. I think it was a mistake to listen to that one first, since most of their songs have a different sound.

    But alas, I found another one, Not Today
