Okay so I am doing a thing where I name five artists or groups that I reallyy like along with five songs by them that I really like. I will also list why I like the artist/group and why I like those songs by them. I will also -if I can -try to link those songs with a YouTube link.
BTS: Bangtan Boys
We have been really obsessed with BTS lately like we have been watching BTS: American Hustle and Bangtan Bomb almost every night until 5 in the morning so yeah. I like J-Hope and Sara likes Rap Monster but she has really been into V's singing. I personally have always really liked BTS but didn't start watching much of their stuff until recently and I just like them more now! I like how funny and random they are and CAN WE PLEASE GIVE THIS GROUP SOME CREDIT FOR THEIR AMAZING DANCE SKILLS LIKE WHOA MAN! I will post a video that shows their skills at the end of their post so you can check it out. It's called their Intro Performance.
So here are the five songs I like by them a lot recently.
I like Hip Hop Lover a lot! The lyrics are super catchy and one minute it's a hard-core rap song but the next it's like singy(?) and stuff! It's so cool! I recommend this one a lot.
This one is just by Suga, Rap Monster, and J-Hope like Satoori Rap is but it rocks. I love this style in music and I also really like J-Hope so yeah. J-Hope, Rap Monster, and Suga do sound great together though.
Born Singer has a good tune to it and it's super fun to listen to. Not like an upbeat way but like an entertaining way. The song is also just one of those songs you listen to that are emotional sounding so you're just like "Ah, so nice" when you hear it.
Usually with rap songs you can't learn the rap easily but in this song you can. I like a lot of songs like this by BTS and again this one is just Suga, Rap Monster and J-Hope.

I haven't watched any B1A4 lately because I've seen almost everything they're in. B1A4 are a group that even though you may not like them the most or may not pay attention to them 24/7, you still are loyal and love them a lot. They are a great group and you can tell if they are acting on-camera or not and most the time, they aren't.
So the five songs with them are some old and new ones but still great.
I got this stuck in my head randomly and I just remembered how great it is. Now this is one of those fun songs that are the upbeat, awesome kind. I also really like the choreography for the song. I always try to do it but I'm too slow. Anyways, it's just a song that is timeless.
This one gets stuck in my head often when I think about B1A4. It's funny how it's supposed to be "A Cup of Alcohol" but they had to change it since they have a lot of younger fans. That was way of track so yeah. I haven't heard this song as much as I would like, I don't know why since it's so catchy and always stuck in my head. It is one of the first songs I think of when I think of B1A4.
Such sad times for B1A4 but it got them a lot of new fans. They had a lot of problems after this song was released and they didn't do much for a while but it's still a good song. Very, very catchy too.
Why did I pick the ones that get stuck in my head most? Maybe because they are good songs. This is and older one but it's still great. I don't have much to say because it is one of those songs that you just kind of like because you like it.
If you guys know the show Sesame Player then cool, B1A4 were on it and they were really funny and stuff. One mission was to make a song for the show and they had like a day to do it so they made the song Sesame Player. It's fun and reminds me of how B1A4 were back in the day and stuff. It's so great so check out the song and even the show.

Taeyang (Big Bang)
Teayang. Vocal and dancer in Big Bang and newly found rapper in 2013. I love Taeyang a lot! He's a super great singer, dancer, and rapper and he's wonderful. His voice is like an angel from Heaven, it's awesome. I mean, who doesn't love him.
A very famous song and a very great one. It's had the Best Karaoke since it's come out. Anyone can sing to it and even any version of it! My favorite version is Taeyang's and then it would be Tablo's featuring Taeyang. I'm sure you've all heard it already. It's still good though.
I like to call this Naman Barabwa by it's romanized name, I don't know why so sometimes when I talk about it people get confused. It's another song that is fun to sing to and I like to make fun of how high-pitched his voice was back then.
This song though!!! Taeyang has such singable songs, guys! I love them. But this is a good song for when you're in the car and especially in the car at night. When we went to see Block B in D.C we listened to this song a lot.
This is from Rise just like Eyes, Nose, Lips and Body are. This song sounds really emotional when you listen to it and it's super great. I listened to it non-stop when I first heard it. Wonderful song!
This song is emotional too. It's super good and I've only seen the video like once. The more you listen to it, the better it gets. I love to listen to this song just all the time and really any time unless you are really hyper and wanna jump around a bunch.

Zico (Block B)
Nice photo, right? I like it. Off track already and I haven't even began. Well, not much to say since I tend to always talk about Zico, probably more than I should but oh well.
ONTO THE FIVE SONGS! These five were hard to get but yeah, I like them.
I am overly obsessed with this song. It's his more underground work and I think it's weird that Tough Cookie was his solo debut when he's had tons of other songs before by himself, even if they were underground songs. But yeah, this is the song that made me love Zico and his rapping skills and it also made me love Mino even before Winner had been announced.
I really like Zico's debut song and I like it better than his new song, Well Dong (Feat. Ja Mezz), even though that was good too. Tough Cookie was really Zico's style and I enjoyed it a lot.
You know, putting this one on the list is like "Do I really want to get into that?" But yes. Yes I do! I am obsessed with this song. The emotion in it sounds so real like he had experience with it before and I love it! Not many people might have heard of it but it's an amazing song and I think it is one of my favorite songs in general, even though I have tons.
When I first heard this song it gave me a headache because you just hear "Sam, sam, sam, sam, sam, sam ,sam" over and over and it was annoying but the more it got stuck in my head, the more I listened to it and the more I liked it so now it's a great song to me. Some people may dislike it but any hip hop/ rap fan or a Block B fan or a Zico fan, you will like it. No doubt.
This song is great and really underground. Sometimes it is hard to find but search up like a whole thing of Zico's mixtapes on YouTube and you'll get it, I'll link it too so you can listen to it.

At first I liked U by John Park and then I ended up liking all of his songs. His voice is just so amazing that it's like dying when you hear it. But yeah, he's super good and I love his music a lot.
These are the main five songs I listen to on my computer by him so I just did these five.
This song is so good and the amount of times I've heard it, you'd think I would've seen the MV by now. Nope. I haven't. I downloaded the song as the MV version so it sounds exactly like the MV with the crash noise and stuff in it and so I get freaked out when it makes the loud noises suddenly, anyways, the MV sounds and the song is just so sad even if I can understand certain words only. I love it.
I didn't like this song at first. I thought that it was too slow because I only like select slow songs since I like faster, upbeat songs. I get too impatient with slow songs and I thought "Oh well John Park did U which was a good faster song and now he's back to his old style" and I didn't like it but I love this song now. I just had to listen to it more is all and actually pay attention to it. It's like watching a movie you used to hate and then you like it.
I recommend this song 100% because it's so amazing. There is something about it that just makes me love it more than I probably should. This song is so great and just like "wah, daebak!" when you hear it! I can't say much more since it's so great.
This was the first song by him that I heard and I instantly fell in love with it like ever since I saw the teaser. It does sound a lot like Counting Stars by One Republic but it's so much better -in my opinion -since I don't listen to much English speaking music. But I love this song and the MV is jjang!
It's more of a cute song and I like that too because once you start listening to him, you just listen to more of his stuff and like it no matter what it is. It's a good song and I like the MV too. The concept was cool as well.
Well, I'm glad that I got to work on this and I'm glad I could just do something for our blog. I hope you enjoyed it and I'm going to steal Sara's thing by calling you rice cakes!
