Women of Kpop - Fun/Support Post
I've been inspired recently by the huge influx of comebacks, debuts, and successes that have occurred since the end of February and will be occurring for the women of Kpop.
It all started with Brave Girls' resurgence with their now #1 song Rollin' that sits 3rd all-time in hourly PAKs in Korean online streaming!
So I decided to create a fun post of all the female groups and soloists that I follow, the songs that got me into them and my favourites songs of theirs.
I think it might be a good way to help any Kpop newbies, people who are thinking of getting into Kpop, or Kpop fans who are focused on just one group to get into more Kpop.
I also think it's important to support women in Kpop because the men are doing just fine. Korea is the country with the highest difference in wages for men vs. women at 35%! So more streams, interest, and support for women is an easy way to help!
How it Will Work
I will list the groups then soloist in order of debut year. Only active groups and soloists. Formatted like this:
