A while back, it occurred to me that getting acquainted with K-pop is no easy task. When you want to get into it, it can be hard as all hell to figure out where to go next. How's a beginner to learn???
NEVER FEAR, THIS THREAD IS NOW HERE!!!
I compiled a list of essential K-pop music for each artist based on forum consensus
. This will need to be updated every year or so, but it should prove useful to get any new kids on the K-block started in the right direction to find out who they like and don't like.
The songs that scored the top three highest for each artist are in the lists below. I've linked almost every song to a Youtube vid to make things easier. There are three lists, depending on what you're looking for: solo artists, girl groups, boy groups and mixed groups.
By the way, if any mods want to go ahead and sticky this, I have no problem with it. In fact, I'd recommend it Solo ArtistsBoADrunken Tigere.viaG-DragonG.NAGummyIUJay ParkJung In
