I’m new to k-pop but I’ve often enjoyed what little I have heard in the past, far more than American counterparts in the sugary pop game. Other than Taylor Swift, there’s nothing currently on Top 40 radio that I’m remotely interested in. I like to hear pop that crackles with audacity.
This brings me to the earworm-worthy tune below: Red Light, the first song I heard by Korean pop stars 에프엑스 – aka f(x).
Also, here’s my favorite comment on the video page:
Patrick Bateman: “They seem like nice Amish girls.”
I know I’m not supposed to look at the comments. Especially me. I even have an award at my office for Angering The Most Racists in light of certain shenanigans. Still, I’m perpetually drawn back, beating my eyes against the tide of Internet Comments. At least I’ve learned to stop commenting myself. Some of the time.
Following that tangent, I’ll leave you with a request:
Please comment here! I miss getting regular feedback from friends and strangers! I miss hearing new music when someone sees what I’m into and has a suggestion of their own. That interaction is the genesis of this post. I was curious about k-pop and a knowledgeable friend shared a few key songs that he felt I’d enjoy. This sort of art discovery is just the best.
Thanks for reading and listening, everyone!
