I’m just a college student living in the Midwest of the US who loves K-pop. My favorite group is Super Junior, but I’m pretty much open to anything with a good beat. Welcome to my world!
This blog is for me to both talk about things I’m noticing about K-pop and how it is changing as well as post reviews of music videos, songs, and albums. I have a more… let’s say “conservative” perspective when it comes to music videos, being a practicing Muslim, and I hope you will hear me out on my maybe sometimes unique opinions.
At the end of each of my posts, I will include a song recommendation. So if you’re ever looking for something new to listen to, check out one of my posts!
A little story about how I got into K-pop (To see my full post about this, click here):
The first music video I ever saw was Girls’ Generation’s “Gee.” My sister showed it to me and I’m not gonna lie, I found it pretty hilarious. They just seemed like dancing and singing Barbies to me. My sister also showed me Super Junior’s “Sorry Sorry” which I was much more drawn to. The catchy beat and amazing dance got me completely hooked. Before really getting into Super Junior however, I became completely obsessed with SHINee after watching “Ring Ding Dong.” I fell in love with all of the members and watched all of their music videos and a bunch of their variety shows.
Through SHINee, I started seeing more of the Super Junior members and when “Bonamana” came out, it was love at first sight. Bonamana began my journey to completely loving everything about Super Junior. I watched all of their live performances of Bonamana, discovered Sukira and watched a bunch of clips from that, then learned of the millions of variety shows Super Junior has been on and watched all of those.
I eventually gave other groups a chance and discovered Beast and UKISS and rediscovered Girls’ Generation who I am a huge fan of now. The rest is history.
So yes, I am an ELF. But I’m also a Starlight, MeU, B.A.B.Y, Aileean and so much more. I do still listen to American music, but K-pop has pretty much taken over my phone. #KpoppingSince2010
To get an idea of the kind of music I like or the songs I’m currently into, check out my My Tunes Playlist. Whenever I hear a song that I particularly like, I add it to this playlist. If you want slower, softer songs, check out my Ear Candy playlist. These are songs that I could just get lost in.
For even more variety, I have a Workout Playlist specifically for when I work out. Upbeat. Fast-paced. Perfect for getting your blood pumping.
Yes, I am very particular when it comes to my playlists.
I also make youtube videos!
