Can you recommend some Korean music?

    Day6, The Rose, CNBLUE, and FT Island are Korean rock bands. Love them all. K.Will is a ballad singer with a voice that melts chocolate.

    Don't forget N.Flying, their music is really good, its rock but In wouldn't be able to pinpoint the exact type of rock ;)

    Stray Kids!!!! Specifically the songs "I am You", "My Pace", "School Life", and "District 9". Feel free to look around for more Stray Kids stuff though :) There's also a subgroup of Stray Kids called 3RACHA. (Look for songs "Placebo" and "Broken Compass") Definitely listen to BTS's stuff- you won't be sorry. ("DNA", "Airplane pt 2" "Fake Love" "So What" "Blood Sweat & Tears" "We are Bulletproof pt 2" "Boy in Luv")

    Other groups worth researching (and a couple of their songs): Blackpink ("Boombayah" "As If It's Your Last"), Dreamnote ("Dreamnote"), Got7 ("Hard Carry" "If You Do"), Seventeen ("Thanks" "Oh My!"), EXO ("Ko Ko Bop" and "Overdose"), M.O.N.T ("사귈래 말래"), Day6 ("I Wait" "Shoot Me"), Pentagon ("Shine" and "Cosmo"- cosmo is a japanese song) Hope this helps and enjoy!!

    a lot of people do like bts (me including!) and my recommendation is to go on youtube, look up 'kpop' and click on any song! if you don't like that one, youtube always gives suggestions. :))

    January 21, 2019

    https://www.duolingo.com/blackpinkXblink

    I recommend 1. Blackpink songs they're pretty catchy and the melody is good I especially recommend Ddu-du Ddu-du and playing with fire- As if its your last is goood Also Solo by Jennie is a pretty interesting melody too

    1. BTS Yep BTS songs are definately great I recommend I'm Fine, Dope and Save me- those are my favorite Airplane pt. 2 is interesting too- Danger is a good song and so is Mic Drop if you like raps

    2. Mamamoo I recommend Wind flower, Starry night, and Decalcomanie Mamamoo's songs are all great in my opinion

    3. Some other songs that I recommend I recommend IU's Palette Winner's Millions (G) Idle's Latata and Hann I also like Haon's raps :D Twice songs are definately popular here- some examples are Yes or Yes, Merry and Happy, Ooh- Ahh, and Cheer up!

    Koreans also enjoy G- friends songs- they came back with the new song Sunrise

    I guess I recommended a lot.... The ones that I really recommend from these are Blackpink songs and BTS songs and Mamamoo ones- trust me! You'll like them

    January 21, 2019

    https://www.duolingo.com/blackpinkXblink

    Oh and also Bol4 and Akmu's songs are good too- they're sort of duets Mellomance is also popular in here (they sing ballads)

    January 21, 2019

    https://www.duolingo.com/Psychreny

    Seventeen, ikon, bigbang, exo, pentagon, wanna one and shinee (RIP) are pretty good (svt being the best IMO) Some good songs are Last dance (bigbang), Don't wanna cry (svt), Thanks (svt), Love scenario (ikon), Shine (pentagon), Energetic (wanna one), Clap (svt), Home (svt) and many more of course :3

    There's this kpop weekly ranking youtube channel I follow and they usually keep me updated on the latest kpop. I'd recommend you to maybe watch their top 100 from 2018 or any of kpop song charts.

    Hope you have fun finding some sick beats :)))))

    You bet! I'mma start with what I think is the best and what I haven't seen others post, since I see the groups with really big fanbases and lots of mainstream music are mainly being posted.

    B.A.P : Moondance, Dystopia, ThinkHole, Honeymoon, Warrior, Wake Me Up, Hands Up, Diamond 4 Ya, That's My Jam, Pray (Confession, you'll find the lyrics for it on YouTube under "Pray"). B.A.P has a little bit of everything, you'll find something you like, they even have rock (which is Dystopia and Bangx2).

    Monsta X: Hero, Beautiful, No Exit, Lost in the Dream, From Zero, Tropical Night, Gone Bad, X, Oh My, Perfect Girl, Amen, Myself, Be Quiet... just as with B.A.P the list goes on and their music is very varied, they're one of the few groups that can pull of R&B. They have some really great covers like Mirror by Lil Wayne ft. Bruno Mars and Runaway Baby by Bruno Mars. Watch the selfie version YouTube videos of their song, you won't be disappointed.

    Block B: Very Good, Nalina, Her, Toy, Yesterday, Jackpot (make sure to check out Bastarz they have good songs like Rain, it's Block B's sub unit).

    N.Flying: The Real, HotPotato, Lonely

    Big Bang: Alive, Bang Bang Bang, Sober, Loser, Haru Haru, Blue

    Hyuna: Red, Lip & Hip, Roll Deep, Troublemaker, Retro Future

    Pentagon: Shine (istg you'll fall in love with this right away), Naughty Boy, I'm Fine

    I can relate to the Shine comment- I listened to it once a few days after it came out and now it's towards the top of my Most Played list. Speaking of Shine, that reminds me of another Monsta X song: Shine Forever.

    For Korean music I can only think of BTS and Twice. I am not sure if Korean music outside of Kpop exists since I hardly listen to music other than songs from Grand Theft Auto radio stations and anime. Although I downloaded a handful of kpop and jpop music that I have yet to listen to.

    It will be nice if you can ask for Chinese music recommendations as well, since Chinese music is largely dominated by Hong Kong Cantopop and Taiwanese artists/songs but hardly any popular music/artists from mainland China are known.

    January 20, 2019

    https://www.duolingo.com/hobissunshine

    As for K-pop I recommend BTS, VIXX and Mamamoo. To be more specific, DNA, Shangri-La and Yes I am (respectively) are good songs by them that I absolutely recommend. As for rap I would recommend Jessi (although her music has quite a lot of English) and any of the BTS' rappers' solos (Agust D, RM and J-Hope). There are also many bands and alternative artists in Korea. I do not listen to them myself but I have heard DAY6 and FTISLAND (bands) and Dean (soloist) make really good music.

    I hope you find music that suits your taste! Good luck learning.

    I'm not personally a huge fan of K-pop, but I would definitely recommend the band 산울림 (Sanullim) and the guitarist/singer-songwriter 신중현 (Shin Joong Hyun) if you want some good older non-K-pop Korean music.

    I can recommend you the one's I get addicted to and listen to the most. Here are some random types of KPOP songs. Since a lot of people recommended BTS, I will put that last on this list.

V: Singularity, Jin: Epiphany, Suga: Agust D, RM: Forever Rain, RM: Joke, JHope: Baseline, JHope: Boy Meets Evil.

    https://www.duolingo.com/RoseBTSarmy

    Same. Most days I listen to BTS the whole day. I try to separate myself from it for at least on day but it's hard. But I am discovering more and more Kpop groups especially Momoland and Stray Kids. Come to think about it, I hardly listen to American music nowadays. It's just KPOP and JPOP.

    I can recommend Korean folk singers, too. Ask YouTube. There are numerous 아리랑s, not just the best-known one.

    밀양아리랑 (MirYang Arirang)

    아리아리랑, 쓰리쓰리랑. 아라라리요오

    늴리리야 is my favorite.

    늴리리야, 늴리리야, 니나노 당실로 내가도라간다. 늴늴늴리리, 늴리리야.

    We learned a number of these songs in the Peace Corps back in the 1960s.

    January 30, 2019

    Well, I mostly listen to kpop, so that's really all I can recommend. I love BTS, Super Junior, Black Pink, anything by Taemin, lots of Henry Lau's stuff, and Twice. Classics include Girls Generation, EXO, Shinee, Big Bang, and 2NE1. Also, look up who the new up and comers are - it will help you hear what's current and who knows, you may become a fan of a famous group before they hit it big!

    I really like IU. She started off as a mainstream K-pop artist (what Koreans typically refer to as 아이돌) with catchy and somewhat cheesy songs such as 좋은 날 and 너랑 나 but has since moved into other directions. She has recorded two albums with refreshing and often captivating cover versions of classic Korean pop songs and has worked together with other well-respected artists, such as Seo Tai-ji, Epik High, Lee Byung-Woo and Kim Dong-Ryul. She has also published some more sassy songs that are still popular with mainstream audiences, such as 스물셋 and 삐삐. My personal favourites are her ballads, which are soulful and uplifting. Examples include 싫은 날, 마음, 무릎, 밤편지, and 이름에게. She writes most of the lyrics herself, often in elegant and/or playful but fairly plain language.

    Sam Kim, Eric Nam, Sik-K, Penomeco, GRAY, EXO, SHINee, BTS, DEAN, Crush, Zico. Most of the artists I recommended are rappers and are more "k-hiphop" than kpop,, but I love their music. Hope you'll check them out :)
