I quite like it, it's a very girlbossy song. I do have a serious question though: What can be considered Kpop? Does a group debuting with the Kpop "format" or structure make them a Kpop group even if they sing in English? Because personally I've always thought of Kpop as Korean pop meaning songs sung mainly in the Korean language, but when I really think about it - are there certain rules an artist has to follow to be considered "Kpop"?

I think I'm making a big deal out of nothing, Kpop surely has structures and stereotypes that makes Kpop, well, Kpop. But genre wise, if I found this song for example randomly on Spotify, I wouldn't categorise it as Kpop. At the same time, songs like Arcade Love by LYNXCATS really sounds like a Kpop song even though it's fully in English.

I'd love to hear some other thoughts about this.

Aren't they just a JPop group tho? They are under a Japanese label and all the members are Japanese lol.
