There are many reaction videos of K-pop songs on YouTube, but what would happen when you get some classically-trained musicians to give their thoughts on some popular K-pop singles?
In the latest edition in the "Classical Musicians React" video series by YouTuber ReacttotheK, 11 classically trained musicians were asked to watch 2NE1's "Missing You" and "Come Back Home" MVs, and the results were equal parts enlightening and entertaining!
For "Missing You," all were super impressed with both the song's composition (breaking it down in terms of key changes, major and minor chord progressions, and demonstrations on what's happening musically with a piano) and the vocals of Park Bom, CL, Sandara Park, and Minzy, with the vocalists saying that all four members have unique voices but their harmonies were all on point.
As for "Come Back Home," everyone was taken in by the song's reggae-esque introduction before immediately being blown away by the song's first big drop - which garnered some hilariously positive reactions from each musician!
Check out 2NE1's "Missing You" and "Come Back Home" as reviewed by classical musicians right here and let us know what you think.
