6 Reasons Why You Should Get Into K-pop

Time to hope on the bandwagon and realize how awesome K-pop is.

6 Reasons Why You Should Get Into K-pop

Within the past two years, I have recently discovered the music phenomenon K-pop. It all began with my sister who is known to surf the "tube" as they say and one bored day, we both discovered our first band: Nu'est. For the longest time that's all I thought there was to this genre, but my pro sister began exploring and found all these knew bands and before I knew it, I became hooked on K-pop bands.

K-pop stands for (South) Korean Pop Music and the genre consists of mainly groups of boy bands and girl bands, although there are some single artists out there; one that you may know is Psy. These bands can consist up to 21 members (Double B) and be as small as two or three.

When people first hear or even see a K-pop video they get pretty weird, and they have a right to be. I mean, it was a huge culture shock for me with all their fancy outfits and unique dancing styles. K-pop is actually pretty intense. But some people still don't know what K-pop is or they shun it saying that is really, really, weird. (Which it can be if you watch the right videos.)

K-pop, though, is a really awesome genre and more people should appreciate this new and incoming popular art form. Here are some reasons why people should get into K-pop.

1. They're cute

K-pop band members are awkwardly aesthetically pleasing; for both the boy and girl bands. But it could also be because they always wear make-up in their videos in their videos.

2. They're funny

A lot of the bands have a great sense of humor and are know to goof off in their practice sessions and interviews.

3. They're definitely entertaining

All of their videos have some sort of story or theme that plays into the song. Although a lot of times it gets really hard to relate everything that's going on. They are even fun to watch as they film or make their songs and music videos.

4. They're totally skilled

They are trained in both the vocals and dance moves to the extreme.

5. Their dance moves

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F05%2F16%2F6359902335995625461124512657_53617318a8b2fb5cd0f53c7cb86ca3af8a0a549d_hq.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=195&h=5bcba6d9f0ad7186c550c374a8fcee3961d59913b7e3dfb3cdf7581d41783785&size=980x&c=3045040033 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F05%252F16%252F6359902335995625461124512657_53617318a8b2fb5cd0f53c7cb86ca3af8a0a549d_hq.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D195%26h%3D5bcba6d9f0ad7186c550c374a8fcee3961d59913b7e3dfb3cdf7581d41783785%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3045040033%22%7D" expand=1]

The dance moves they pull off would even put a dance major to shame. These moves are so intense and in-sync that it just makes you go, "Wow."

6. They put on a show

Their music is awesome, their dance moves are on point, and they work hard. When you put all these qualities together, you get an amazing experience. You get to see an music video filled with dancing, a story line, interesting music, and (sometimes) cute members.

So why aren't you listening to them now? If you need some help to start, here are some bands you can look up; Girls Generation, EXO, Got7, 4MINUTE, and Block B.

Marching Through March

Some appreciation for the month of March.


I love the entire year. Well, for the most part. I'm not a big fan of Winter, but even then, every month has something that's pretty great. November? Thanksgiving. December? Winter Holidays. January? New Year's. February? Valentine's and Single Awareness Day. May? Existential dread during finals. But for me, March has always been my favorite month of the year, and for good reason.
