Here are some of my favourite k-Pop songs to bust a move to! *slips on floor*
1. BTS: "Fire"
As soon as the beat drops, "Fire" oozes with energy. The chorus has your feet dancing instantly! Check out the dance version to see how intense the song really is:
2. EXO: "Call Me Baby"
EXO have numerous hits to their name but this one has to be my favourite. The way the song builds from zero-to-100 has your head bobbing before you know it! (Plus Sehun’s epic line: “Never don’t mind about a thing.” Classic)!
3. SISTAR: "Shake It"
I can’t help but get my groove on to this track. SISTAR’s smooth vocals and playful beat make it such a fun and addictive track. Sometimes in life...you just gotta shake it!
4. INFINITE: "The Chaser"
This was one of the first songs to get me into k-Pop. At first, I dabbled in a few K-Pop songs but when I saw this music video it showed me a whole new light. If you’ve never seen or heard an INFINITE song, I highly recommend this one!
5. Super Junior: "Sorry Sorry"
When a song sweeps over Asia you know it’s gotta be good. That’s exactly what Super Junior did with this track. SM Entertainment are known for making catchy songs, but I feel this one tops their list; one for the ages!
6. 2NE1: "I am the best"
Easily my favourite 2NE1 track. The confidence and swagger in this song places the group apart from every other girl group out there. I mean CL is holding the WWE Championship belt in the music video, if that’s not confidence I don’t know what is!
7. BIGBANG: "Fantastic Baby"
If you know k-Pop you know "Fantastic Baby." Artists all over the world have recognised the song. It has appeared in Glee and in a Trailer for Pitch Perfect 2. Even though the song is 5 years old, jamming out to the music video will never get old!
