On the strength of Pegg's endorsement, I listened to 30 seconds of one of their songs.

Never again.

It's electro.
Prick.

BTO is vastly superior.

Me too, except when the damn thing tells me to turn the wrong way down a one-way street or guides me toward any roundabout within a 10-mile radius.

Can't say BTS ain't TCB.

I'm an old man and I fell for it too.  Even went to a few concerts.

Unlike Pegg I only liked the girl groups.  For fairly obvious reasons.

But after a while I got over it.

I have a confession. I read an article about K-Pop beat drops and I've been listening to nothing but K-Pop for 2 weeks. I'm not a fan of BTS, there are far more interesting bands out there.

Try this one. Oh, and I can give Pegg almost 2 decades

Hoo boy you are deep into the fever.  Enjoy it while it lasts.  Eventually it will all sound the same and you'll realize it's overproduced pablum churned out by organizations that severely abuse their "talent".

I burn through music, so yeah it won't last, but it will be fun. And I'll have a few playlists I might dip into once in a while. Any recommendations to speed me on my way?

My fever was 5 or 6 years ago.  Back then it was Girl's Generation, After School, 2NE1, Kara, Spica, 4Minute, Girl's Day, and so many more I can't remember anymore.

Fark is at fault for sending me down that dark path.  There was an article greenlit here about Girl's Generation having a show at Madison Square Garden.  Prior to that I had never even heard of Kpop.  After that I was hooked.  So I would check that out first.  It's in the YouTubes.

Oh, and when you need a break, check out Babymetal.  They got me right off of Kpop.

Thanks. I've already found Girl's Generation and 2NE1, so a good start.

I downloaded (pre streaming days) the first Babymetal album back in 2014. Not followed them since.

i dont hate boy bands but they arent my cup of tea.  however, i am a huge fan of kpop girl groups and soloists.  mamamoo, yezi, pixy, itzy, and loona are some of my favs. 

i have a ticket for the denver loona show and am hoping to get a ticket for the la itzy show when they go on sale next week.

Serious question. Why are they all male or all female ( maybe they aren't...)? Seems like a mixed gender band would show up eventually.

Also, and I know this is crazy... Sometimes bands participate in the creation of the overall effect by playing musical instruments.

Oooooooooh Simon Pegg likes BTS WAAAAH BRB gonna burn my copies of Hot Fuzz and Spaced!, then gonna put my headphones on and listen to my vinyls of the Pixies and the Ramones for the 19 bazillionth times because I can't accept there's someone that likes something I don't like!! WAAAAH!!

Seriously who gives a fark what kind of music he likes?  This isn't junior high school. It doesn't farking matter what music someone listens to. If he finds joy in it, then I'm happy for him. Why is it so hard for people to just accept something so farking simple? It does not affect you in any way.

Before Loona debuted, each member did an interesting thing where they did their own solo song/vid.  I was especially fond of this one:

But I've never cared for any of the group's songs.  After the Yves single I suppose my expectations were too high.

yves' solo was such a pleasant song, you may want to check out their new song called flip that, it has a kindof similar vibe.  my fav of the solo debuts was chuu's heart attack, but then i am a chuu bias so of course it is.

my fav song of theirs as a group is still ptt.

Honestly, the last Kpop song I really liked was Red Velvet's Peek A-Boo.

Since then it's kind of like when Kyle from South Park hears shiat whenever he listens to music.  This is not a knock on Kpop really, it's just how my taste for it has developed.

His fifteen year old sat him down to listen to BTS and, as you say, their songs are quite nice.
