I’ve been a fan of K-pop since I was in high school (I graduated in 2011). The first groups that I listened to were Girls’ Generation, 2PM, and 4Minute. This was back before Gangnam Style and BTS were breaking world records. As an avid K-pop fan, I’m very proud of how far this music movement has come and that many are finally recognizing the talent of Korean artists. However, I also feel bad for past groups. That’s why I thought I would share some amazing songs by artists and groups from the past because without them you wouldn’t have the groups and artists we have today.
That’s why I wanted to start a new series on my blog where I share songs from artists from the past. Introducing, The ABCs of K-pop. I will be posting an ABC-style playlist featuring songs or artists that begin with a letter of the alphabet from certain years. This way new K-pop fans can discover some rad songs from older groups.
I’m starting with 2011-2012 because that’s when I started actively listening to K-pop. I’m not biased when it comes to K-pop, I’ll listen to any artists or group from any company. I choose songs that I really enjoyed based on the letter from the alphabet. Hopefully, those who weren’t listening to K-pop music around this time will discover not-so-new songs or artists that you’ll love!
