So my older sister, 29, got into k-pop about 6 months ago. She used to give me a ton of shit for my K-pop love. So it makes me happy when she wants to listen to it or add it to play lists for parties. But the thing is, she never remembers names of the groups or members. So she has great ways of describing them to me so I can tell her what to look up for songs she likes.
"They sound like legit hip hop, just in Korean" aka BTS
She's a huge fan of West coast rap. Like Coolio, Khalico, and Warren G. When I told her they were recognized as talented and worked with them, she was all in. I showed her War of Hormones first and she was hooked. She's definitely into them and knows who BTS is. Except the members names...
"The group with way too many guys too keep straight." or "The one that does Monster and I love that one." aka EXO
She'd ask if she was consistently calling them attractive or cute to make sure she wasn't getting them too mixed up. She really likes a lot of their music. The only song she didn't care for was Call Me Baby. She's a fan though.
"Bunny alien" group aka B.A.P
She knows them now. Not their individual names, but she knows them by looking at them. She basically had to learn who they were considering they're mine and her son's all time favorite group. She likes a few songs.
"They're all tall, it's Chinese, they do like...everything" group aka UNIQ
"Is this how they decide who becomes famous or something? Like if you're tall they find you and make you an idol?"
"That fast rapper in BTS, the one that's always going hard" aka Suga aka AGUST D
She finally knows and recognizes Suga and even knows his other moniker AGUST D because she loved that album. She actually gets irritated when my nephew pronounces Suga wrong. She likes her some Suga. Especially since he loves producing. *bias alert
"abs guy with a baby face in BTS" aka Jimin
I basically killed her by showing her the dance battle that Hobi and Jimin did at an award show. When he tore his shirt off, her jaw dropped. So he's abs guy until further notice. She loves when he does the flip over Hobi.
"The really good dancer in BTS, the one that raps in a, uhm, different way" aka J-Hope
We all know he sounds a bit different than Suga and Rapmon. He's got very different inflection and speech patterns that make him a pretty unique rapper. Better believe she loves 1Verse.
"I wanna fuck that rapper" aka Rap Monster of BTS
Yeah...she really liked him. Like immediately. Pretty sure he was her first ever bias especially since he was pretty deep with his solo stuff. But she doesn't get biases yet.
"Aaron Carter" aka Seungyoun from UNIQ aka Luizy
"Baby-faced Deer" aka Luhan
She learned his name pretty quick. Mostly because of the song Lu. But she really loves his music, which always makes me happy. She's constantly and randomly going, "Luuu, Luuu." That's when she doesn't replace it with, "Moooo, mooo."
"The tall one from the huge group that I found really attractive. Lots of bass in his songs" aka ZTAO
n Call Me Baby when he was standing with the other guys she lost her shit. "He's so fucking tall!"
"The singer who's like a cute awkward penguin, you know, the short one" aka Kyungsoo of EXO
When I said people call him a penguin, she says, "Yeah. I can see it."
"The one that was cute until they dyed his hair way too blonde" aka Kai of EXO
She thought he was cute, but Overdose changed her mind. She thinks he's cute in every other video, so long as he doesn't have the super blonde hair.
She's pretty entertaining and has a different way of remembering things that totally crack me up, because I always know precisely who she means. Hope you got a chuckle out of these too.
