Hotpot: April 19th 2013

Introducing….THE HOTPOT SERIES!!

Since life has gotten busier and I haven’t been able to post nearly as much as I would like, I have decided to start posting my current playlist of favorite trending k-pop songs, because well, since they’re songs that I like they all deserve to be mentioned on this blog (but unfortunately, we just don’t have the time to review all of them!).  Moreover, not every great k-pop song has a music video that’s worth talking about, so some of those might find their heyday here as well.  Hotpots will be posted every now and then, as waves of comebacks and debuts find their way to the stage and battle for my heart.  Of course, any and all songs listed may still get reviewed..just know that if they’re by me they’ll most likely be absolutely glowing.

Without further ado, here are the newest k-pop songs that have made it onto my top favorites k-pop playlist!

First Impressions: 2Yoon’s “24/7”

MV:

I wish I made k-pop MV reaction videos so I could have recorded my expression from watching this for posterity.  Not only is the track for “24/7” composed primarily of banjo, the heart and soul of country and bluegrass, but it’s pretty much Miley Cyrus’ “Hoedown Throwdown” with just a little more synthesizer thrown in.  Seriously, from the “BOOM CLAP BOOM BOOM BOOM CLAP” to the huge group line dancing, the country band in the background to the melody of the chorus, this song copies “Hoedown Throwdown” almost down to a T.  And I’m not the only one who thinks so; just go to the “Hoedown Throwdown” music video and you’ll see almost all of the recent comments have to do with “24/7”.  HONESTLY I think one “Hoedown Throwdown” is enough for this world.
