30 Day K-Pop Challenge - Day 12: The very first k-pop song you’ve ever heard
비 - Rain Is Coming
The year was 2006. Stephen Colbert and Rain were having a feud over who was more influential, and my stepfather and I were trying to figure out what the big deal was. This didn’t get me hooked on K-Pop, but it was my first impression of it.

Big Bang - How Gee
30 Day K-Pop Challenge - Day 7: A k-pop song that makes you cry
This technically isn’t “K-Pop,” but it is a Korean song that comes from a popular artist in Korea so there. Whether or not you understand all the lyrics, you can feel the emotion in the song. Especially after you read his story (I know it’s lengthy, but it’s definitely worth the read! Soooo moving). This man was the victim of the most brutal example of cyber bullying I’ve ever heard of, and I’m surprised he came through the other side. You know it’s bad when Ashton Kutcher tweets to tell people to stop, and he didn’t even know the guy.
30 Day K-Pop Challenge - Day 6: Your favorite k-pop song from your favorite girl group
2NE1 - Follow Me (Try To Copy Me)
This song is what really made me fall for 2NE1. I thought “I just found my Korean Spice Girls!” Even though I really love several of their songs, I always come back to this one.

It changes fairly often, but as far as their Korean songs go, my favorite BIGBANG song at the moment is Bad Boy.
