ONTD Original: 13 KPOP BOPS FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION



So, there are four types of people in the world

1. The ones who had a K-pop phase, those who may have had their ringtones set to "Gee," and purposely let their phone go off in class so that everyone knew just how cool they were... and now cringe every time they think about it.

2. Those who are currently in their K-pop phases, and can tell you the difference between lead and main singers and dancers. Visuals. Sub-vocalists. Those who can recommend you some cool songs from outside the Big 3, or the Big 4 (SM, JYP, YG, BIGHIT) now

3. Those who make their entire lives about Kpop stanning, which is not healthy in the slightes, so, let's avoid talking about that

4. And those who don't know it yet, but will inevitably find themselves casually enjoying a K-pop track whether they want to or not. It just happens



I am both #1 and #4, and that cringey memory I just had about my phone ringing in 11th grade biology class has inspired me to share 10 of my favourite KPOP BOPS that I still dig no matter what stage I'm in


"Boy With Luv" — BTS feat. Halsey (2019)
Yes, the first track is from BTS. "Boy With Luv" is the perfect bubblegum banger, idc. It eclipses "Dynamite" 10x over, and the sheer unadulterated joy I feel when this comes on shuffle is almost embarassing. Almost





"Gashina" — SUNMI (2017)
"Gashina" is "Solo's" bad girl cousin, who sneaks out of the house to do hookah with her friends on a weekday with her fake ID. The beat, that gun dance, the word 'gashina' being a euphimism for 'bitch' in itself. Come on now



"Coming of Age Ceremony" — Park Ji Yoon (2000)
Where Britney had "I'm a Slave 4 U," Christina had "Lady Marmalade" and "Dirrty," and Jessica had "Irrisistible," Park Ji Yoon had "Coming of Age Ceremony." The track may be 20 years-old now, but it is stil routinely covered by current-day idols looking to be bad à la Willa Ford



"MIROTIC" — TVXQ (2008)
R.I.P. TVXQ, thank u for delivering us this sex-on-a-stick bop before it all went to hell



"Tell Me Your Wish (Genie)" — Girls' Generation (2009)
I once sprained my leg trying to imitate that leg dance, and I have to mentally force myself every time I listen to this song to keep still so I don't accidentally break a bone on my brittle body



"Crazy" HyunA & the HyunA-ettes 4MINUTE (2015)
The aesthetic, the dance breaks? Come on



"UP&DOWN" — EXID (2014)

"I Feel You" — Wonder Girls (2015)
When Sohee and Sunye left the group after all the shenanigans JYP pulled throughout their careers, I truly believed the group was over. But then, Sunmi came back, and the girls delivered this '80s-fueled nostalgia-tinged SLAP. They didn't have to go that hard, but they did



"DDU-DU DDU-DU" — BLACKPINK (2018)
Though the group's name was inspired by American singer P!nk's R&B era from her first album in 2000, this song is nonetheless an earworm



"Abracadabra" — Brown Eyed Girls (2010)
Too busy thrusting my hips to type commentary



"U-Go-Girl" — Lee Hyori (2008)
IT SLAPS. IT'S CAMP. THE AESTHETIC. THE DANCE BREAK. IT COMES FROM AN ALBUM CALLED IT'S HYORISH. GOD BLESS THIS SONG AND LEE HYORI



"Bad Boy" — Red Velvet (2018)
KPOP + DARKCHILD = PERFECTION



"Milky Way" — BoA (2003)
No Kpop list is complete without mentioning Queen BoA. She has too many bangers to name, not just in Kpop, but Jpop too. It's been 20 years since she debuted, and she's barely crossed 30 years-old. "Milky Way" is one of those cheesy songs that make me smile no matter how downtrodden I feel about life
