Korean boys invade our girls’ hearts
In 2010 we saw many girls do crazy things for Korean boys, who are princes to them. Looking into one of these girl’s rooms, we will see the walls covered in pictures of Asian boys (specifically Koreans). Their music libraries are not filled with Arabic, American, or any other usual genre of music. Instead, you will find hundreds upon hundreds of songs in Korean. The really funny part is, these girls will be able to sing along to every lyric of every song perfectly, despite not being able to speak Korean! Some Korean words have also made it into their everyday vocabularies, well they must be Korean because I can’t understand them. They Because I can’t understand it. They call their brother “oppa” and their sister “unnie,” just like a native Korean would. We searched and found that what made them fall in love with Korean culture are the handsome boys that Kpop is filled with, such as Super Junior. Its members are “Leeteuk, Heechul, Hankyung, Yesung, Kangin, Shindong, Sungmin, Eunhyuk, Donghae, Siwon, Ryeowook, Kibum, and Kyuhyun. ” There is also the sexy band ’2PM,’ whose members include “Junsu, Nichkhun, Taecyeon, Wooyoung, Junho, and Chansung. “ Finally, teen favorite “SHINee” has members “Onew, Jonghyun, Key, Minho, Taemin.” Many other bands exist and have huge numbers of fans. In 2011 we see that our girls hearts’ are still pounding over Korean boys, maybe more than before. Will they stay like this?
