So lately I’m obsessed with Kpop . . .well, truthfully, I’ve been obsessed with all things Korean for a while now, but recently, I’ve been listening to the music, really listening, and while some songs misuse English words and phrases, most of the music out right now either makes me want to move (shake that thing) or gives me the feels. Most of the music is connected to a Kdrama OST, but some of it is just play old comebacks.
Let me briefly explain a comeback regarding Kpop: Unlike most of the world where singers, bands, and groups have long intervals between albums, in Korea, the music scene is FAST. So a group will put out a single or a mini album, once. sometimes twice a year. Then they’ll put out an album in Japanese. And the promotion period doesn’t last long. They’re on every talk show, variety show, and music show. It’s a constant cycle of new music every week.
So…there have been many comebacks this year. And I’ve put together my current favorites. Well, these are the songs I’m listening to while I write this post. In the past, I’d buy a CD then listen to it obsessively until I got sick of it. Then I’d put it away and not revisit it until months, maybe years later. But with so many Kpop comebacks, and the discovery of some awesome singers, I haven’t had a chance to listen to everything I’ve downloaded.
