(laughs suddenly) Mainly 'cause of the, "Ah!" - (shrill) ♪ Squad! ♪ ♪ (dramatic chord) ♪ - (Finebros) So prior to today, how familiar were you with K-pop? - Um, I knew of it. I know it's, like, massive. - Maybe I've looked at a video for 10 or 15 seconds and then been like, "Ah, just can't do it." - I don't think I've ever seen a music video, like a K-pop music video. So that was really cool. - I just kinda wait until you guys call me in, and then that is the extent of my K-pop experience right there. - I haven't been keeping up with it, just because now K-pop fandom is just so huge, it's a life. And I'm just in so deep with so many other fandoms, I'm like, I have to dabble in K-pop. I can't fall down the K-hole. - Bro, oh my-- can we talk about that last time? If you guys have some good K-pop, please send it to me. Tweet it to me right now. My feed is still going crazy to this day. A lot of BTS. I have checked out some BTS. - (Finebros) So first band we showed you this time, the song was called "Monster," and it's by Exo. - Exo. - Exo, I'm a fan. - I've heard of Exo, because Teens React reacted to Exo. And somebody on Teens React said that I looked like one of the members. And ever since that happened, I have gotten millions of tweets and tumbles and everything. I wasn't even involved in this. - (Finebros) And that single is the group's first to be number one on the Billboard world digital charts. - Damn! - Damn. - (Finebros) What'd you think about that song and video? - I thought it was all right. I thought the dancing was quite cool. - I didn't necessarily get so hooked on the song. But I'd be definitely willing to listen to more. - What's not to like, you know? A bunch of pretty Korean boys with colored hair? - I liked it. I mean, the video itself engrossed me wanting more. - I really liked it. The boys were cute... and talented. - (Finebros) The next song was the girl group I.O.I... - I.O.I. Lots of letters. - What is up with these abbreviations, man? - (Finebros) ...which stands for "Ideal of Idol." - All right. - (Finebros) And their song is called "Dream Girls." What'd you think about that? - Super poppy. A little too poppy for my taste. - It was very dreamy. I liked the color saturation. - That song and the message, I would be very happy for my eight-year-old sister to hear that. - They were a little bit rubbish at what they were trying to do. And then they kept at it, and they followed their dreams. And then they got better. So I actually quite liked that. - (Finebros) I.O.I was put together on a reality show. where the 11 members were chosen out of a pool of 101 singers from different entertainment companies and then put together into this band. - Really? - Oh, that's awesome. - Wow, cool. - That sounds really confusing, business-wise. - Sounds like a lot of contractual drama. - It's a unique thing. - They represent teamwork. - Okay. Oh, and that's what their song was about. Teamwork. - They're just like, ♪ All our labels get along ♪ - (Finebros) So the last video was some Korean hip hop. - That was weird. - That was awesome. - (Finebros) The song was "It G Ma" by Keith Ape, featuring several K-hip hop artists. What did you think about that one? - I just couldn't take it seriously. Is it bad to say it just seemed like they were trying too hard? - They focused on a lot of weird noises. - It had elements that you would definitely hear in jams here in this country, you know, hip hop. But it definitely had some of its own flavor that was really cool to hear infused. - Someone showed me "It G Ma." And at first, I was like, "What is this?" But you can't help but get into it. - (Finebros) Every year, we talk about how big Korean music is getting. And once again, this was a huge year. What do you think about the fact that Korean music is gaining more worldwide appeal not just on the pop side but also in the rap and hip hop side? - It just shows that they're talented. - I love the fact that it can expand on other genres. What I'm looking forward now is Korean country. - I want to see Gucci Mane and a few of those guys go over there and try to start collabing with these guys. - K-pop has gotten a lot more edgy and urban. - I don't think it's a bad thing. - No. - They're branching out, and they're trying new things. And they're expanding to different genres of music. So I think that's cool. - K-pop is so cookie-cutter, and controversial things are kind of touchy. I think it's interesting that the more aggressive stuff is kind of making a move. - K-pop paved the way into those other genres. People are now looking more into it and paying more attention to that. - YouTube is definitely the one thing that is helping new artists and new genres find an audience, because without it, I wouldn't know of half the things I like to watch or listen to today. - (Finebros) So we put subtitles on the videos. Did you like having them there? - I liked having subtitles. It's a full package when you listen to music. It's the lyrics, it's the visuals. And I liked having all of that. - I'm a songwriter. I like to listen to lyrics and think, "What did you mean by that?"
