What is your advice for new K-pop fans? I watched BBMAs and was curious about BTS hence I'm here :)

I’m so happy that you have gotten curious about BTS! For new K-pop fans I would check out various music videos from different groups. A few YouTube channels that have the right to distribute various groups’ music videos are 1theK, ktmusic, and cjenmusic.

Personally, I am more into the hiphop and rnb side of Korean music a bit more than the pop side. If you are curious about Korean music in general, I would like to recommend DEAN, DPR LIVE, CRUSH, Giriboy, and a label called AOMG (all the artists are so good I can’t just name one). For K-pop groups beyond BTS, I would look into MONSTA X. [EDIT: I’ve been into Korean music for 8-9 years and I started with BIG BANG then moved to groups like SHINee, BEAST (now five members and renamed Highlight), MBLAQ (now only three members).]

After you figure out what groups or artists you like, I would learn their names! You can do this through watching videos of them on YouTube and looking at their profiles (official and fanmade). Often times artists have real names and stage names. In the case of BTS, the leader and main rapper for the group is Rap Monster, but his real name is Kim Namjoon. 

After this, I would go onto iTunes and look up their full albums. Then, I would follow the official accounts for the artist on social media (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube channel).

One thing different between American artists and Korean artists is that Korean artists make more TV appearances whether this is through live music show performances (Music Bank, Music Core, Inkigayo, M!Countdown) or variety shows.

Unlike American artists, Korean artists have much more content released on the daily. For this reason, people (like us) create updates accounts. If you decide to follow BTS and join the ARMY fandom, our blog posts updates on nearly everything that BTS does. If you get into another group, there are still other updates accounts both on Twitter and Tumblr. 

I can’t really touch on everything because my advice differs for each artist/group, but I hope this helped! If any of you guys have any other tips, please leave them in the replies~^^

Let the high A flat be strong ladies. Imagine a firefighter bursting through the flames with a new-born child! Strong yet beautiful, graceful yet secure. Let it radiate from your heart in the most genuine way possible. Don’t lose that image.
