God, I’ll probably regret this after posting it, but who cares because I’m in a good mood today!
I woke up early, unwillingly, but my dog needed to use the potty. I studied, drank my coffee and have already written one post, despite my wrist deciding to burn like the fiery gates of hell.
I was just listening to a song on my Korean playlist…because that’s really all I listen to now, and this post idea came to me.
And, stop right here🤚 I do not listen to BTS. Why does everyone assume that when you like Korean music, that immediately means you like BTS? It’s getting old.
Anyways, short rant over. My husband’s birthday is today and he is still asleep, so I have some time to kill before he wakes up and birthday celebrations ensue. Although, he is kind of a party pooper and refuses to do anything for his own birthdays…
But, hell, my sister and I are getting tattoos on my birthday! I mean, it’ll be the big 30! I need a mini life crisis and tattoo my body more. Plus, I love tattoos and just can’t stop inking myself up.
I remember when I first started listening to Korean music, I was pretty embarrassed, even though I was alone in my office and no one could see me. Still, I kept looking away, then back again, wincing some, and forcing myself to stare at it.
Eventually, I couldn’t look away. Mostly, because my brain was so confused. I mean, it can be really weird.
After spending a year and a half listening to the same group, I decided to try a music video of theirs that I just couldn’t watch before. Lowkey, I’m kind of addicted to it now…
It’s so weirdly fun and entertaining. Plus, the dance is really complex and interesting. I actually heard them talk about it during an interview, saying that after performing this dance, they would taste blood in their mouth. I’m not sure why they did, but obviously this can’t be good.
I mean, I love the song on it’s own. It’s ridiculously catchy and I can’t not sing it when I’m doing literally anything in my home. Chores, laundry, dishes. You name it, I’ll be grooving to it.
So, now I’m going to put this catchy song into your head forever and ever! Enjoy the weirdness!
I know, I know. You don’t have to thank me, but you’re welcome 😊
Disclaimer: To be fair, this group HATES all of their music videos. They like their dances and performing live on stage, but have always said that they despise their own music videos and have a hard time watching them themselves. Keep in mind, most groups have very little say in this process.
But even though they hate the music video, they do their best to act like they don’t, as most Korean performers do. So, I’m also posting a live version, which they prefer (granted it is in Japanese and not Korean).
Also, I get that these videos are really silly. I mean, come on 🤣 However, if you just listen to some of the songs on their own, they are very good. But I won’t get into posting about those because it would literally just become a long ass playlist that 90% of you could care less about.
I love music and sharing it with people, so I become super passionate about it once those flood gates open. However, it’s sometimes best to keep those gates closed.
Even now, I’m holding myself back from posting other songs of theirs because they are much better than this one, but FLOOD GATES MUST STAY CLOSED FOR THE WELLBEING OF EVERYONE!
It’s painful though to not show you the really really good ones…God, I feel like I’m giving you a bad impression of kpop in generally with this video.
Why the hell am I posting this?! There is really no rhyme or reason at all 🤦♀️
