I wanted to write a post about an ongoing obsession of mine for as long as I can remember, Korean pop. It started one night while I was surfing Youtube that I started watching the following video from the K-pop group Girls Generation.
It was interesting video and considering I don’t speak Korean it was great to just watch a video and analyze it from a purely aesthetic point of view and how the video tells a story.
I have been hooked ever since and over the years I have watched many Girl’s Generation videos, Genie is one of my favorites. I always look up the English lyrics for each song, but these songs are beautiful in Korean.
It is also kinda cool to watch Girls Generation grow as a group over the years.
My two favorite songs from Girls Generation are these two songs Maybe, Baby & Promise.
As all artists do, some of the members of Girls Generation went solo. One of the Artists, Jessica, came out with her single Fly (among others) and it is the song that has gotten me through a lot. The English and Korean versions of this song are really amazing.
I listen to this song just before I start writing.
The last video I wanted to share another Girls Generation alum Taeyeon, this is really an amazing song and I love listening to it daily.
I chose to write this post because one of my New Years resolutions is to learn Korean. I purchased my 12-month subscription to Rosetta Stone. Korean is such a beautiful language. I realized how much K-pop has been a part of my music playlist over the last year and I thought it would be great share this with my fellow bloggers.
I am also putting South Korea on my list of travel destinations in the following year.

Please Help me Publish my Memoir
I am almost done editing my memoir “The Bipolar Writer,” and I have decided to go down the self-publishing route. If you can donate anything towards my goal, it would mean the world to me. I am still working towards enough to pay an artist for a good cover. Those that donate will get a special mention in my memoir on a page dedicated to those that made my memoir possible. Thank you in advance!
