Kpop Music Video: Day 1
“Gee” by SNSD under SM Entertainment
This music video is the second most watched Kpop video on Youtube, coming second only to the most watched video on Youtube: “Gangnam Style”. The band is called So Nyeo Shi Dae (소녀시대), which is abbreviated to SNSD and translates into English as Girl’s Generation. The nine members are most noted for making cuter music videos than some of their Kpop counterparts, however, their music style has evolved since this 2009 video.
There are many popular Kpop videos that I could have started my list with; I chose this video because it was the video that inspired me to look for more music in this genre. While it is not the first Kpop song I listened to, or my favorite band, I think fondly back to the first time I heard it as the start of my Kpop journey.
Until next time,
