I wanted to create a thread the covers one of the most popular musical genres in the world. I have been getting into K-Pop recently and I have a few groups that I really like(Red Velvet, Twice and Blackpink to name a few). I'm not sure how many people around here listen to K-Pop but I figure I would create a thread that talks about it.

To start it off, I've been really listening to GOT7's new comeback, "Not By The Moon." It came out last week and I really like the song and music video for it:

I decided to change the thread title since I didn't want it to be overly serious. I wanted to make it inclusive to all. Here are a couple songs that I've liked this week:

NCT Dream: "Ridin":


Chung Ha: "Stay Tonight":


Cignature: "ASSA"

It's not the worst genre in the world, but man, the K-Pop fandom on Twitter is so unbearable. They're everywhere over there and they spam fancams or "Maybe if you stanned (insert name of K-pop musician)" comments on tweets that has nothing to Korean music. I'm glad to see normal and sane fans like you instead of the crazier and ruder ones.
