K-Pop Throwbacks To Add To Your Playlist

K-Pop has become an undeniable worldwide phenomenon in recent years thanks to artists such as BTS, BLACKPINK, and EXO. However, before today’s K-Pop idols, there were artists such as Kim Sung Jae, 1TYM, and Turbo. The songs that made these artists famous are still covered by newly-debuted idols, showing the lasting impact that these singers and rappers have had on the K-Pop industry.

We recently compiled some of these songs into a playlist for newer K-Pop fans to explore the roots of the genre. Check it out here.

I couldn’t remember lots of the artists or titles because I was younger when I heard my aunt and uncle playing these, so thank you for creating this list! <3
