Artist: 몬스타엑스 (Monsta X)
I am currently watching the Men’s Luge Singles competition at the 2018 Winter Olympics, which is being held in Pyeong Chang, South Korea. This is, let’s be honest, a totally bonkers sport, but nowhere near as crazy as the phenomenon that is K-pop. So, today and tomorrow I shall be choosing a couple of tracks (by a male band and a female band) in order to celebrate this music and share some love for Korean music.
Today’s track has a rather nice video with a meaningful time travel motif. Or is it about making the correct choices first time, as until someone invents cool watches like the one in the video, we can’t go back in time. While my brain was trying to work out exactly what was going on, I was also considering the immensity of K-Pop. It’s *huge*! In a format that will be familiar to British music fans, Monsta X were brought together on a TV show. However, the professionalism, the slickness, the focus, the planning…these things take fabricated pop to a whole new level. Gotta respect that!
