Some of my readers may be aware that I've become just a little bit obsessed with KPop over the last year or so. And JPop. And CPop.

You see, one Sunday morning early last year I discovered SBS PopAsia. It was around the time that Psy's Gangnam Style was still going crazy, but that wasn't what caught my attention. It was a five member boy band doing a synchronised dance routine in their music video. I don't even remember who it was now, but I had an instant flashback to the 90s! I watched a few more videos featuring multi-member boy bands and girl bands, and I was fascinated by the catchy music, great production values and energetic dancing. After a few weeks, I was hooked.

SBS PopAsia is on Sunday afternoons now, and I don't manage to catch it very often. But that's okay because I have YouTube :) I follow a bunch of KPop/JPop blogs on Tumblr and Feedly, so I keep an eye on the latest releases and news that way. And I have an extensive YouTube playlist called 'Fave Asian Pop' that now has over 100 videos on it :)

I was thinking of sharing a few of my favourite videos in this post, but it would be impossible to limit myself to any number that is remotely reasonable *lol*. So instead I'll just include a couple of my favourites that are in the charts right now.

The first is 200% by Akdong Musician. They're a brother and sister duo who write their own music. They're cute and quirky, and this song is so adorable! Although I like the video, I actually find it a bit distracting from the music and prefer to listen to the song on its own merits.

My other fave right now is Eternity by VIXX. It's a good example of the high production values I mentioned earlier, and the song itself is quite addictive. I have a bit of a crush on Ravi, the group's rapper - he's the one with blue hair in this video (in KPop lingo, he's my 'bias' in VIXX).

No, I don't understand any of the words (except for the English parts), but that doesn't matter a jot. I just love the music, the videos and the KPop culture in general. Most of my KPop fanning happens on my Tumblr account, where I also happen to love making the occasional gif :)
