It’s heeeeeere!

Ok, so today’s post is technically just songs — B-sides don’t get their own MVs. I have to hunt high and low to find a YouTube version of the song, but I do it because I love it. (Ok, yes, the dance practices for some songs are ridiculously easy to find. Let me have my little exaggerations.)
**For educational purposes, back in the day, B-sides were the songs from the opposite side of the record that recording companies would send to the radio station to play on the air. A-sides were the hit songs, or potential hit songs, while B-sides were usually personally selected by the artist because they felt that it was as strong as the A-side song, and they really, REALLY hoped the DJ would like it enough to play it. **

I love a good anthem, a song that is triumphant and empowering and makes me want to stand up and shout, “Yes! I will do the thing!” Admittedly, sometimes I don’t know what the thing is, but these songs always invigorate me and make me want to do something with my life. So clench those fists and get ready to punch the air as you listen to my top five kpop anthems!
It’s almost Halloween! And while this holiday is not really celebrated in Korea the way it here is in the US, I thought it would be the perfect time to bring out those music videos that cover the more spooky/odd aspects of life. So come join me and celebrate the holiday Kpop style. Continue reading
I have to start this post with a disclaimer: I know nothing about the technicalities that go into making a good rap.
