I know you were probably not expecting to see this blog come from me.  But I think it could turn out to be one of the more entertaining entries from this year.  K-Pop is the phrase used to refer to Korean Pop music.  When a song is big here, it is played everywhere, and all the time.  We have shared a-lot about Korean Culture historically, but this will give you a glimpse into the music scene.  All of these songs have a bit of English mixed in with the Korean.  The English phrases are always the catchiest part of the song, and every single one of these songs has gotten stuck in my head over the past 12 months.  There are also catchy dance moves that our students teach us(Alison will be glad to show you all of these upon our return) Please let me know if any of these get stuck in your heads. haha.  Enjoy.....

"Tell Me" by the Wonder Girls.

"So Hot" by the Wonder Girls

"Nobody" by the Wonder Girls(Let this one run its course, it starts out with a guy singing, but then he gets stuck in the bathroom.  This is when the girls come in and save the show.

"One More Time" by Jewelry

"Lies" by Big Bang
Big Bang is HUGE here.  Seriously, 99% of the kids at our school will say that they like them.  
If you hit this one up at 1:25 you will hear what our students sing to us every time they forget to do their homework.

"Look At Me" by Tae Yang
This is one of Alison's favorites.
