BlackPink

My students like BlackPink. I'd watched, or tried to, a couple of their videos. I couldn't get through them but that's another thing.

Nonetheless, life has been slow and lonely lately and I was looking around Netflix on the weekend for something to watch. I saw this documentary and figured what the hell. So I watched it. It was, much to my surprise, excellent. Those young ladies work hard at their craft. I respect that. I learned a lot about the group.

Ah, Blackpink. Probably the biggest girl group on the planet right now.

They're the only k-pop group I genuinely like and listen to regularly. Got some legit bangers and the members seem to have real chemistry which is obviously lacking in some other groups. MAD respect for all their hard work and multi-language skillz, too.

...also Jennie *swoon*

That doc is excellent and does a good job of giving noobs a crash course in BP's origins while offering some interesting/cute "behind the scenes" moments for established fans but if you're thirsty for more content check out

Boy bands do too. I know its easier for us as men to feel sympathy and appreciation for the girl groups because dey hawt and all, but BTS and the other boy groups do the same things and just as hard. They really put a lot of work, thought, care, and so on into what they do. I think some people on this board have some unfounded prejudice towards those groups and just to easily dismiss them without really knowing anything about them. Now they don't have to be your cup of tea, but you can respect what they do. Think Neil Patrick Harris at the Tony Awards for the opening musical number. It can be "Too gay for Jack MacFarland" "gay" but you still respect it because of the massive amount of work and talent involved. I couldn't name one BTS song, but that doesn't mean I don't appreciate the talent and work they do. Same with Blackpink. It usually isn't until you get to the drecks of Kpop groups that you get ones who are barely a step above the girls dancing in the Bongo truck. The one hit wonders whose "hit" was #15 and got a smidgen of airplay.

Yep. And this is standard for the Korean music industry; the Confucian work ethic and belief in the perfectibility of “man” (girls in this case) thru continual education and development.
