Reasoning: Honestly bands aren’t acknowledged enough in the Kpop world, not that there are many to begin with. They are an extremely talented group. And Hongki’s voice is amazing. It’s so unique and different. You really need to listen to him.
Reasoning: Seriously I feel like so much could have been avoided had U-Kiss had more popularity. I mean I won’t talk about all the member line up changes and stuff here but honestly I think things would have turned out better for U-Kiss if people didn’t sleep on them all the time. Their vocals were/are really good and their songs are good too. [Well maybe not so much their earlier stuff but you know..]
Reasoning: Seriously if you are still sleeping on Beast/Highlight…I don’t know what to say to you. Amazing songs, amazing talent like….what else could you want. Sadly Beast is no longer Beast and now only 5 members but in my heart Beast is still Beast and I’ll forever be a Beauty.
Reasoning: UGH WHY SLEEP ON INFINITE!!!??? They are amazing, all members can sing well. They are literally known for their synchronization. Their songs are amazing. Like what is there not to like? And all their personalities are different so I promise there will be one that you like. Also check out their non title songs as well. I swear that list of fave songs is so long like I can’t even put them all on there. LOVE INFINITE I’M BEGGING YOU! Also check out their sub units: Infinite H, Infinite F, and Sunggyu’s solo albums and Woohyun’s solo album.
Reasoning: Well….have you heard of them? I honestly happened to just stumble upon them and fell in love with them. Sadly their sales are pretty much shit in Korea and so they mostly promote and release songs in Japan which unfortunately are not as much of my taste. I like that one that I listed. But their Japanese singles don’t fit them as well as their more manly Korean ones. But whatever money talks and they do what sales. That’s why you won’t see them promoting much in Korea.Sigh….if only they were more popular.
Reasoning: Honestly has anyone even heard of them? Do you know them? Most people don’t. Except maybe now with Hyunsik making waves in the acting world. But still….they are relatively unknown. Unfortunately they are on hiatus, there was a statement that the group disbanded but members themselves have said that’s not true. So maybe when they eventually come back more people will know of them.
Reasoning: Truthfully they are much more popular than most that will be on this complete list. But they honestly don’t get the amount of recognition they truly deserve. They are so talented; Sandeul and Jinyoung’s voices are so beautiful. CNU and Gongchan are talented as well despite not being the main vocals. Baro’s rapping is great as well. Their songs are all amazing and a lot of them are upbeat and cute and playful and I love it. They are so adorable you should honestly listen to and love them.
Reasoning: Boyfriend is one of the most looked over 3rd generation idol groups. [that’s debatable but in my own little system they are 3rd generation] Anyway point is they aren’t very popular, you hardly ever see them on any variety shows, they haven’t even had a proper comeback since 2015. Their company screws them over and has basically thrown them in the basement not to see light of day while they focus on their other more popular groups. Someone support Boyfriend please omg!
Reasoning: Have you heard of them? Probably not. They aren’t very popular, aren’t promoted well. And basically no one hears of them. But I really like their songs and they are really talented so you should at least give them a chance.
Reasoning; I’ll be honest I’m not like stanning them in the sense that I know their names or personalities or anything like that. But I do enjoy their music and when they do come out with new stuff I always make sure to check it out. You should too. Honestly they deserve more popularity.
Reasoning: I swear no one has heard of them, they are never on any shows. I seriously only know one member because I’ve only ever seen them on one show. So I haven’t really got to know them. But what I do know is they are talented and I like their music so you should listen to them.
Reasoning: Seriously BTOB gets mistreated and underrated all the time. Even some music shows don’t like to have them because of their unpopularity. It’s so ridiculous I just don’t understand why they aren’t popular. They are adorable and cute and sweet and talented. They are versatile too. Originally being a normal kpop group but they have transformed into an absolute beautiful ballad/pop group. Honestly they are amazing you should love them. Everyone should love them.
Look at them, just….look at them. When I look at 24K now, I
see men who have been through it all. I see how far they have come over the
years. It hurts my heart to think of all the pain they’ve been through. Member
changes. Injuries. A forced 2 year hiatus. Byungho’s messy leave. The fuckery
Jinhong had to deal with about Double A (don’t even get me started on how the
ball was dropped on that group). Every comeback, there was a new maknae, it
seemed like (remember when this all started and DAEIL was the maknae?! Holy
shit, can’t even believe that hardly now!) Everyone’s screaming because of how
amazing they look in this new video. They do look amazing, as they always do.
But to me, “Still 24K” is a rallying call for these boys who grew into men
under a harsh spotlight, one where everyone whispered, “You aren’t good enough,”
“You’ve been gone for too long, just disband already,” “Nugu group for life,” “Nobody
cares about 24K,” “Adding members won’t help a group that sucks.”
all this and last year, they came back with new members and a new sound and a
new concept and blew everyone away. They might not be the top group, but they
have respect now. People see how hard they work, how much they throw themselves
into every single promotion, because they want to make their name look good;
they want to show their fans who have never wavered in their support that they
deserve our adoration. “Still 24K” says, no matter how many members come in or how
many take breaks (Daeil hasn’t left, fact check your info before you spread
rumors), 24K will always be 24K, the group that never gives up, never ever
lets their 24U’s down and never, NEVER backs down.

hahaha guys the musical version of Romeo and Juliet is just so quality, honestly:
French? Hungarian? You can listen to the soundtrack in English probably, but pick a language and prepare for An Experience
French version is Romeo et Juliette, and it’s the original play/music
the Montagues and Capulets are color-coded. Pretty sure it’s supposed to be red and blue, but honestly, it’s more like magenta and violet. Sharkboy vs Lavagirl, omg
everyone’s hair is so Extra in this version
the d a n c i n g
Les Rois du Monde. Just that song/scene
everyone looks like MCR Killjoys era, and the general visual and musical theme is like, Mad Max if governments still existed
everyone! is so! gorgeous! and amazing!
i just love Juliette a lot in this version, okay?
dialogue updated to more modern language (as far as my subtitle-reading self can tell) and it works really well
nobody cares about Romeo’s lonely soul because everyone is too busy TEARING UP VERONA IN SYNCHRONIZED DANCE STEPS
okay, so I’m a bit biased. I think you should watch both! Definitely, you should watch the French version, because it’s amazing and original! but actually, if you’re going to only watch one of them, you should watch the Hungarian version because:
Benvolio is like 97% more Personality in this version
T H E DANCING
alas, the color-coding is not nearly as obvious, but do not fear, because the hair is cranked up to 300% to make up for it
idk if this was a mistranslation or if this is genuinely the closest English meaning to match the Hungarian, but somewhere in the middle of a really serious song, Romeo says something like “my buddies, my friends” and I can’t stop laughing
Juliet is so pretty and cute and she’s just so excited to fall in love! and meet someone who is cute and nice and wants to kiss her!
if you didn’t already ship R&J you’re freaking going to now they’re so cute i’m literally covering my face with my hands and squealing
pretty much every time Benvolio and Mercutio are sharing the stage, I cannot stop smiling
this Romeo is like Romeo+Hamlet. he’s all introspective and premonitions of doom, so it punches you in the feels that much harder when it turns out he’s RIGHT
the Montagues are a pack of young, feral, hedonistic, heathens and it’s fantastic
the serious parts are actually serious, and they’ll tear you up, let me say. if you didn’t feel feelings about the deaths and the suicides before, you will while watching this musical
(those last 6 are true of the French version, too, I just stuck them in here because I’m biased)
