Question #6: A favorite k-pop song from your favorite girl group
My response two years ago would have been Blackpink’s Playing with Fire.
Now it is a toss up between (G)I-dle’s Uh-Oh and LION. I’m going to go with Uh-Oh, though:
I love this live performance, BTW. They look like they are having fun!
Question #7: K-pop song that makes you cry
I hadn’t had a k-pop song that made me cry until the release of BTS’ I’m Fine.
It’s possibly due to the fact this song came out at the perfect time. We watched Burn the Stage (docu-series and the movie) and heard their struggles. We saw BTS members breaking down and crying on stage in front of thousands.
The lyrics and choreography is very emotional – ARMY will understand. There are three distinct parts of the dance where each of the maknae line (Jungkook, Jimin and V) fall to their knees and the rest of the members picks them up. Or the part where J-Hope (the resident sunshine and positive energy of the group) motions each member up right. And of course, it’s the conclusion to Save Me from three years ago to signify their personal growth as individuals and as a group.
I still get chills whenever I watch a live performance of this song.
