Banhana's new release is actually pretty decent

It's the type of song that the koreans usually like: a soft melody that can be considered a ballad. Singers like IU weren't always famous from the start, so it's acceptable that this music can do well on charts for being adorable. Banhana is from the same label as the k-pop legend Nilo, Limez Entertainment. The company use new social media strategies to boost their artists popularity, and it seems to work.

The song talks about forgetting difficult memories from the past.

What's up with the title? I don't think that title should express an opinion...

Well I had a good laugh at the title. It may be colloquial, but it gets the point across effectively.

Never underestimate older Korean's love of cheesy ballads.

First off, the title. Really? "Actually pretty decent" - nice way to instantly make a group sound like pure crap (based solely on your opinions, of course) before someone even gets to know them or listen to them. By saying it that way, not only are you further making a point that none of this credible beyond just being your opinion and two you're in essence trash talking their work up until this point (even if that wasn't your intention). Not to mention, using the word "decent" is akin to calling food you don't want to vomit, decent.

Secondly, using a phrase like this (including the clearly-not-capitalized word for a group of specific people, KOREAN): "that the koreans usually like" comes off rather....awkward. I get what you were going for, trying to refer simply to the general perceived taste of Koreans in their music genre and style choices. But by adding "the" before the ethnicity makes it sound as if you are not seeing them as on your same level.

I'm likely reading too much into the wording you used. It's just really strange to me, I guess, especially after reading the title of the article with what seemed to carry a tone in how it was stated.
