4 Korean Groups I Stanned Because of their Music

September 18, 2019

There are a lot of reasons why we become a fan of a certain group or duo or artist. When I entered the KPOP fandom, I admit, I became a fan because of their good looks and cool MV. The music just followed. But these groups that I'll be sharing to you in this post are the groups that attracted me because of their music.

I barely stan other groups outside of SM and JYP. Although I have heard of BTOB before because of Yook Sungjae, I still didn't stan them.

Last April 2015, I was able to watch them live during the Best of Best Concert together with Red Velvet, Girls' Generation, and Super Junior which was held at the Philippine Arena. I was pretty impressed with their energetic performance. I started following them but I can't call myself as a "Melody" (fandom name) yet.

On that year, BTOB released a new song entitled "It's Okay". I listened to it and eventually I fell in love with the song. Not only because of their beautiful voices, but also because of the melody and message of the song. Starting then, I became a lowkey fan of BTOB and I'm always looking forward to listening to their songs especially the ballads.

2. DAY6

Aside from dancing groups, I was also interested in K-bands. I was a fan of CNBlue and FT Island. To be very honest, I plan on not being a fan of DAY6 because I don't want to add another group on my list. But because I am a JYP stan, and I have been hearing about them since YG's WIN, I watched their first trailer MV and immediately got hooked with it.

Of all the groups I will or have shared in this post, I guess DAY6 is the group I follow the most. Because definitely they do not have any bad songs. There may be some songs that I still need to listen over and over again before I like it, but that doesn't mean that song is not good.

If you're gonna ask me which DAY6 songs will I recommend for you to listen first, maybe I'll go with Congratulations, the song that started all.

3. Akdong Musician (AKMU)

I am not a YG stan. My main reason was their kind of music is not my type. Like what I mentioned earlier, even if it's not my type doesn't mean it's a bad song. It's just that I prefer other types or genres of songs.

I have heard about AKMU since they joined K-POP Star. But I was too deep with GOT7 when AKMU debuted so I didn't really care about them before. When the drama "Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo" came out, I became a fan of Nam Joo Hyuk and started searching about him. That's when I got into AKMU.

Nam Joo Hyuk was the actor in AKMU's Give Love. When I heard about it, I remembered their time during K-POP Star. I started listening to all of their songs in their album and I love all of their songs. Whenever I feel down and sad, I just put their songs on and I felt a little calmer.

4. Bolbbalgan4

Another duo that I recently checked out. I have been hearing about them in music shows and award shows and I was really curious why they win awards. I saw on Twitter that they have they are strong when it comes to digital. Still, I didn't listen to them.

Suddenly, when I was watching a web drama from Playlist Global, they were there and even their song was featured. When I first heard of it, I knew that this is the type of music I will love to hear always. On that same week, Produce X 101 contestants sang one of their songs, "To My Youth", and I really love it!

I may be late in listening to them, but I know I made the right decision. I am looking forward to more of their songs.

How about you guys? Who are the groups that you stanned because of their music? Share it to me and I will listen to their songs. Who knows, I might like them too!
