    Favorite Kpop #10: BTS

    BTS (Korean: 방탄소년단; RR: Bangtan Sonyeondan), also known as the Bangtan Boys, is a South Korean boy band formed in 2010 and debuting in 2013 under Big Hit Entertainment. They consist of seven members Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook who co-writes and co-produces much of their own material. Originally a hip hop group, their musical style has evolved to incorporate a wide range of genres; their lyrics have often discussed mental health, the troubles of school-age youth and coming of age, loss, the journey towards self-love, and individualism. Their work also frequently references literature, philosophy and psychological concepts, and includes an alternate universe storyline. They have two current webtoons called Save Me and 7Fates: Chakho. Their music genres is kpop, pop, hip hop, r&b and edm. They have an anthology album called Proof that consists of 48 songs in total including their title tracks, solo and subunit songs also demo songs that was never released for the public to hear.

    They’ve accomplished a lot. I’m sure any fellow ARMYs out there are proud of them too. More info on their Wikipedia page here. My bias is Jungkook 💜 I like his vocals when he sings and he dances good too. The other members are awesome also. I like a lot of their songs even their solo songs that I’ve already listened to. My favorite Jungkook solo song is Euphoria 💜 Their last song as a group is called “Yet to Come” before the start of their solo projects. So far Jhope finished his solo album called Jack in the Box, he was at Lollapalooza and featured in Crush’s music video called Rush Hour which can be viewed here. His previous solo album, a debut mixtape it was called Hope World. RM was featured in Balming Tiger’s music video called Sexy Nukim. Also Suga was featured in Psy’s music video called “That That.” Almost Jungkook was featured in Charlie Puth’s song “Left and Right.” I’m excited when the other members are gonna release their songs too or featured in someone else’s video. I wonder what Jungkook’s next solo album is gonna sound like also it’ll probably sound awesome. Comment hi or something if you’re a BTS ARMY. Does anyone like their songs too? I’m just curious so I thought I would ask if there was a song you liked. If you don’t wanna tell me your favorite then that’s fine too. Bye for now until next review.

    In case you wanna watch/listen to the songs I had mentioned
    That That – Psy Ft. Suga
    Left & Right – Charlie Puth Ft. Jungkook
    Sexy Nukim – Balming Tiger Ft. RM
    Rush Hour – Crush Ft. JHope

    Favorite Kpop #9: Super Junior

    Super Junior is a South Korean boy band formed by Lee Soo-man, the founder of SM Entertainment in 2005. They’re also known as SJ or SuJu. Over the years, they have been divided into smaller groups, simultaneously targeting different music industries and audiences. The members have also individually branched out into hosting, presenting and acting. Their successes and popularity as all-rounded entertainers have led other Korean entertainment managements to also begin training their music groups in other aspects of the entertainment industry. Super Junior was the best-selling K-pop artist for four years in a row. The group has earned thirteen music awards from the Mnet Asian Music Awards, nineteen from the Golden Disc Awards, and are the second singing group to win Favorite Artist Korea at the 2008 MTV Asia Awards after jtL in 2003.

    Before the group settled with their current name, the company simply referred to them as juniors, a representation of the members’ young ages when they first became SM trainees. After the members showcased their different talents to the company at a picnic, the company finalized their group name to Super Junior, and the first generation of Super Junior officially became Super Junior 05. Super Junior 05 made their pre-debut performance on the Korean channel Mnet on September 11, 2005. Super Junior received seven nominations at the 2007 Mnet/KM Music Festival, winning three of them which included Artist of the Year, termed by many as the highest recognition of the ceremony. Super Junior collected two more recognitions at the 22nd Golden Disk Awards, including a Disk Bonsang award (Record of the Year).

    In short they won a bunch of awards and over time their other achievements too, some of the members had to leave for the military service once they came of age to go. For the rest of the info go check out their Wikipedia page. It’s sad when these kpop males go off for their military service but it’s good they’re helping out their country and that their fans will miss them but happy when they return safely. They had subgroups too where some could work on their solo activities. I never paid any attention to that part of Suju but Wikipedia explains it better than me or other sites that have information about them that’s current. I don’t have a bias for the group but I’ve enjoy their songs and the songs listed below I’ve enjoyed listening too which you might like as well.

    Sorry Sorry
    Mr. Simple
    Sexy, Free & Single

    I don’t have a bias in the group as they generally all look good when they sing and dance together. It’s cool they accomplished a lot as group until some had to depart for their military service but the members that stayed did solo projects. Their fandom name is E.L.F which stands for ever lasting friends. Not much else I can think of to add so here’s the review. Here’s their official website below that you can check out
