Top songs of Kpop girl groups during the first 5 years this XXI century

News via soompi.com

Gyms in Korea were playing this for years after it dropped because its relentless beat is not only catchy, it is actually relatively fast. At approximately 130bpm, it is even quicker than American dance hits like Rihanna’s “Only Girl in the World” and Maroon 5’s “Moves Like Jagger.” If you are making a running playlist, basically, you will want “So Cool” to start playing at the point when you are kicking for the finish line.

Fitting in with the exercise theme, the music video was (loosely) inspired by the Daegu-hosted IAAF World Championships in 2011, which explains all the spangly batons, hurdling, and this sort of thing:

And not forgetting this technically perfect-looking Fosbury Flop from Bora in the high jump. A gold medal for that lady, please.

Kpop Feature (Part Two): Unsung - 9 More Underrated Boy Groups

News via allkpop.com

Block B Block B, too, has seen an increase in popularity starting from last year. However, I don"t think they"ve reached the popularity level where they should be. I was surprised to learn that they actually debuted in 2011. They garnered a lot of interest from fans prior to their debut despite having many of their early videos banned by the Commission of Youth Protection. I personally think that "Very Good" was a turn around track for this group, and I"m really excited to see that this group is finally starting to take off. Their new single, "HER" haswon them multiple live-music show number ones. Although they"ve been much underrated for much of their career thus far, I"m confident that this is now their time.

MBLAQ MBLAQ had a lot of attention in the beginning because of their connection to legendary artist, Rain. They had a strong debut in 2009, and their hit, "Y," released in 2010, garnered a lot of popularity for this new group. This group has made a strong appearances on variety shows and dramas showcasing their singing and acting chops. Although this group has accomplished a lot, to me, they are still underrated, especially when compared to their "rival" group, B2ST (as both groups debuted around the same time). It"s no shock that these guys are extremely talented, and they are always hovering near the top of the music charts. I just hope it won"t be too long before these hits become all-kills.
