    5 Things You Like About K-Pop

    Good morning all (well at least it's morning here)!

    Today seems a fine day, and wouldn't it be sweet if we show our love to old k-pop?

    K-pop is great isn't it? It's why we're all here on this board for heaven's sake!

    Like any great thing, it means something different to each person. That's the wonderful thing about art, it means something totally unique to each individual. People like it for a whole slew of reasons!

    Today let's share what yours are!

    Tell us.... 5 things you like about k-pop!

    Go! Go! Go!



    5 Things Emanresu Likes About K-Pop


    5. Seolhyun & Her Dimples

    Thank god I found Seolhyun and her pretty dimples. When I am down, I simply see the girl smile and all is well.

    4. ALL. THE. PRETTY. GIRLS.
    Need I say more? Okay I will. There's perhaps no greater concentration of pretty girls in all the world. I feel bad for those who haven't discovered kpop yet. Boy are they missing out. ;)

    3. Growing With Groups
    There's nothing quite like following a group from infancy to maturation. Being able to be follow them from their trainee days all the way until they perhaps become "legends". One can only hope!

    2. The Idol System
    I very much love the idol system that kpop is built on. The idol system in utilization in Asian popular entertainment allows so many more points of interaction than comparative industries like that of the U.S. music scene. Not only to you get to enjoy a given idol's music, but for many you get to explore their efforts in hosting and variety, acting, and social media, etc. It's a much more enveloping experience than being a fan of traditional "singers" or "musicians".

    1. Yoona
    Yoona. The girl that got me into kpop 10 years ago. I remember the exact moment.

    It was this moment:
    [​IMG]
    I was watching this weird new MV my Korean classmate showed me. I wasn't too impressed at first....

    Then.... Yoona. "Who is that girl?" I asked. My classmate responded.... "Oh that's Yoona. Do you like her?"

    All I could do was nod silently like an idiot.

    Well the rest as they say.... is history!

    I like everything about Kpop tbh

    Kpop Trash Alert

    @emanresu10

    1. Vocals -
    I like Vocals that are unique and easy to distinguish from others.I also like vocalists who are able to stay in pitch and in key. Good stability of the voice, meaning it’s not off pitch and it doesn’t sound wobbly, shaky and unsupported. Unsupported means how the individual vocalist uses their correct breathing technique with the diaphragm to better support, project and hold their voice together.When an idol sings with their Chest voice, lowest range , head voice, highest range , mixed voice, the belting area of the voice that makes me fall in love with them.

    2.Personality - I like idols who have a good personality and are easy going or bubbly.I also like ones that support their members or support their friends / people their close with because that just shows they can give a shoulder for someone else to lean on.

    3.Dancing - I think dancing is very important when it comes to idols and for me I like different types of dancing for e.x Hip Hop , Urban and Electro - Dance. I also like Kpop dancers that bring in a lot of different choreographers from outside of Korea to choreograph their music videos.Because it shows how multicultural they are. I like it when they use their hands more often in dances for some reason (I know i'm weird)

    4.Rapping - Most people who don’t know about rap think that rapping is just saying words fast with end rhymes(I'm no rap god tho)All the rappers sound different, and rappers with ‘special’ or ‘odd’ voice get more attention. Rap listeners usually agree that a good rapper is a rapper with a special voice and a flow.I like rappers that can easily go with the flow or something

    5.Groups- Don't get me started:p

    here you go emanresu

    1. fashion
    They look dope AF
    and I love fashion
    I actually wanted to be a fashion designer at one point when I was a kid


    2. dancing
    I was interested in dance way before kpop
    because I personally enjoy watching the things I cannot do
    so it's a plus that they include dancing

    3. visuals
    They are just really appealing
    Almost unrealistically pretty in the MVs
    and that draws me in

    4. rap
    It's also a plus that they include rap in their songs
    and korean rap is pretty interesting

    These four things are basically everything KPOP is about
    and my fifth would obviously be the reason Im still here

    5. BTS

    I'll have to say the coordinated dancing is a big plus for me as well. You just don't get that generally in most mainstream Western pop acts. It's sort of novelty here.

    1. That almost every group has a Rapper

    2. I like it that they're mostly groups, so you can pick your favourite

    3. The music in general and the dances

    4. The pretty physical copies

    5. The Language, Korean sound so nice

    Bonus ;)
    Korean industry really cares about Rap and I love it that Rappers got support, trough Mixtapes and stuff.
