Your Two Cents: What k-pop song are you just SICK of hearing???

New week, new question! =)

Okay, so I thought I'd change it up a little this week. Actually, this was DJ Young's question. We're always harping about how good a song is, or how talented a certain artist/group is... Let's be real here. K-pop isn't ALL good. And even if it IS a good song, after the thousandth time or so of hearing the same songs played over and over again... it gets OLD! This question actually might help us out too because if a lot of you are saying the same songs, perhaps we should be a bit more careful with what songs we play on our shows. The last thing we want is to play songs that a lot of people are sick of over and over again! Haha So here's the question....

What k-pop song are you just sick and tired of hearing? Perhaps it's overplayed. Perhaps it's not overplayed, but you hated it from day one. Well, what song and by who?? It doesn't necessarily mean you hate that artist/group. It's just that song in particular!

It's a gloomy, wet and gray Monday here in Seoul, Korea. Hope the weather's a bit better wherever YOU all are! And even if it's not, don't let it get you down!

Meet you guys on air^^


  1. I have to admit that GEE by SNSD was totally overplayed (not on KBS) but in general. I liked the song when I first heard it, but soon that song and the dance was pretty much seen everywhere from comedians/artists doing parodies on variety shows and of course people uploading their dance routine on youtube. Oh! and I did hear couple of guys listening to it on their ipods in the school library...(and probably wanting to get up and dance while at it HAHA)

  2. I have to admit that Oh! by SNSD is kind of annoying. hehe ~ I admit it takes me awhile to like their songs but this I just can't get my ears to listen to it.

  3. Haha I would say 'nobody' by wondergirls. But I don't think it's been recently played over the radio. So it's fine if KPI plays it. Haha... Just overplayed in general...

  4. On another note, I may be wrong, but I realized that the songs played are usually the latest or the top songs. It'd be interesting to listen to past top songs or less well-known tracks again occasionally. :) for eg, I've some songs that are probably not as well known but I still like till today, like Typhoon's "I Will Wait", Lim Chang Jung's 오랜만니야, "The most precious story in the world" by Yesung and Lee Se Jun, etc... :)

  5. hmm i disliked 2pm's heartbeat and wondergirls nobody when i first heard them. There are more songs but i can't think of them right now..mind block ahha. Usually when hear the songs i don't like being played on variety shows, friend's mp3 etc i'd skip to the next part/song

  6. Hi Angie!

    I don't really get sick of Kpop songs, dance moves, movies, k-dramas or variety shows easily. Every individual intellectual work are just so AWESOME that i won't get sick of.

    However, if i have to choose a few, it'll be

    Wonder Girls-Nobody
    SNSD- Gee
    Super Junior- Sorry Sorry.

    Don't get the wrong idea, i love these groups! Especially Super Junior <3

    Because of the catchy tunes, these songs have been introduce most in the Asia. Also, due to the popularity of these songs, it has been playing since last year or even last last year and for up-to-date 'K-popper' like us, we do find it sick at times. Please support new groups/band as well! HAHA!

  7. I listen to some songs over and over and not get sick of them, but I got sick of these two songs because they were overplayed everywhere you looked (radio, TV, live performances, and even in variety shows).

    2PM - Again & Again

    Brown Eyed Girls - Abracadabra

    I love love love these artists and their music, so I feel bad commenting on their songs like this. But I'm sure most of you would agree with my picks.

    (I agree with other users' picks for SNSD's "Gee". That was in everything last year.)

  8. The song that I got sick of is the song by Wonder girls... TELL ME!

  9. Hey..everyoNe..!
    oh I think, All hits song of SNSD and Super junior make me got sick..and feel bored. Example..sorry sorry and Gee, I am totally tired to hear that soNgs. They are too famous and have many fans, so their soNg always overplayed..everytime everywhere. it makes a lot of good songs from other kpop singers are not known because The singer not quiet popular. i feel fame conquers all.
    Hohoho.. it doesnt mean i hate them. I am very admire their talented. Because i doNt have ability like them..! I will always appreciate their creativities. Yoyoyo..kpop..aza aza hwaiting! do the best!

  10. I support these artists but IM REALLY TIRED OF THESE SONGS!! Please play some DBSK songs (: , Big Bang songs, and BEAST!!!

    tired of:
    Oh! By SNSD
    Gee by SNSD
    sign by Brown eyed girls
    Abracadabra by brown eyed girls
    Heartbeat by 2PM

  11. Ring Ding Dong by SHINee

  12. I agree with some of the others. I love the Wondergirls but "Nobody" has been played to death. It's been almost 2 years now and they are still doing that song? They must be tired of it themselves by now.
    I might catch hell with this but pretty much anything by 2ne1 is also played way too much. I love them too but it has gotten to the point where I can't even listen to their album anymore.

  13. honestly there's quite many..but most of it were old nobody by wonder girls,heartbeat by 2pm,gee by snsd and love like this by ss501.


  14. No offense, but I don't like songs from snsd. I don't why but maybe it's because of the overly cuteness sounds.

  15. Uhh, I love all these artist but I think these are overplayed:
    -Nobody_Wonder Girls
    ...okay, nevermind just this one! I Love the Wonder Girls, though!!!!
