You say Big Bang, Kara, Super Junior... I say NELL!

Lately it's been a huuuge boom with korean pop music around the world. Mostly in Asia I think. Maybe I'm one of the few girls who don't care much about Korean boy groups and girl groups. I'm sorry, but to me most songs sound the same and I get the feeling that the music is not as important as the looks and attitude are.
By this post I don't mean that you can't like K-pop girl and boy groups, but I just feel like people are missing some really good music! And I actually do listen to Girl's Generation sometimes too ;D

So now I want to introduce some other S. Korean music because Korean music isn't just about the boy and girl groups. :D


Nell - 어떻게 생각해 (What do you think)
This is my favorit song from my favorite Korean band Nell. They are an indie rock band. Very emotional. I'm so in love with this song.


 Clazziquai - Robotica
Another song that I like is this one. It's by an electro pop band.


Yozoh - 허니 허니 베이비(Honey Honey Baby)
Her music is too cute~ I used one of her songs in my last circle lens review. She also made music to the Korean drama called Coffee Prince.


MC Mong- Ice Cream
Just because we need a little bit of rap here~ I like that he doesn't take himself too seriously.


What do you think? Do you have any great Korean songs to share? ^___^

  4. Hi LOVEEE your blog and I just have to sayyy hell yes on the nell and Clazziquai mention.  these bands really need more recognition! Especially in a market like Korea that seems to be completely over saturated with idol groups. 8D

  10. omg I LOVE Clazziquai & Yozoh ♥
    I used to really like KPop, but I think ever since it kind of 'boomed' all over the internet, I've lost pretty much all interest in it :/ Overloaddd, haha~

  11. supreme team is super underrated too -___- they're a great hip hop duo and crazy talented but nobody's satisfied with just talent and skill anymore :/ 

    ReplyDelete
  12. HAHAH you like NELL? I think they made ONE song (that I can remember) that became quite the hit in Korea. *nods* I'm more into those funky hiphop/pop/r'n'b groups, tho. I never really liked indie. The music is usually a bit to 'odd' for me.. if that makes sense >_<"

    ReplyDelete
  13. I'm sorry if you got offended by this post. It wasn't my purpose :/ I understand that music like NELL is not for everyone, but I feel like you laughed at me because I like them. O_oAnd I didn't say that it's not okay to like the boy bands and girl bands, I listen to some of that too (as I mentioned).

  14. I listened to them now! Thank you for recommend them! They're actually really good! Yeah, I feel the same way :/

  25. Tbh, I don't really get this Korean pop music boom. I agree with you on what you said about it. + it feels like they're trying to hard to be american-ish. xD I do like Nell and Clazziquai though (and a bunch of other korean rock groups) but I still prefer Japanese music. :D

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love the songs! Do you have any Japanese band suggestions? I would love to listen to japanese music but I do not know where to start! :)
