Have you ever just listened to a kpop song because of a vibe it gave or how the song made you feel while listening to it? What about kdramas? Have you ever watched a kdrama because you liked the themes portrayed in a drama or liked how a character/couple was portrayed in the kdrama?
Now I am aware that not all kdrama watchers listen to kpop and not all kpop listeners watch kdramas. THIS IS WHY I WANT TO START THIS SERIES! Maybe you have been a kdrama watcher and want to venture into the world of kpop? Maybe you listen to kpop and want to try a kdrama but don't know where to begin?
This monthly series is where I match up a kdrama with a kpop song. If you liked or are liking the kdrama, you can listen to the kpop song and maybe that will be your gateway into kpop or vice versa. I also just think it will be fun and unique to see what I come up with!
CHECK OUT: What TheKThree thinks of Search:WWW
A popular kdrama this month is Search: WWW. Why are we loving it? The couples that are paired up in the drama and their chemistry? The cinematography (which is beautiful by the way)? The plot and where it is going? One thing I know everyone is loving about this kdrama is the STRONG female characters. They are career driven and unapologetic. They know what they want and they strive to get it. They are confident women who are not afraid to speak their mind and even though they all have men in their storylines, it doesn't mean that they need a man
A Kpop song that is PERFECT to be paired with this kdrama is Hwasa's TWIT! Hwasa is a powerful vocalist and a member of the kpop girl group Mamamoo. This song was her solo debut. The music video portrays Hwasa as a woman who just doesn't seem as interested in her relationship as the male in the mv (remind you of anyone in Search: WWW?). She is a confident, unapologetic woman in the music video which exudes girl power and independence. Even her singing in the song has the tone of a woman who knows what she wants in life and has the ambition to go and get it, not unlike the females in Search: WWW.
Who doesn't love a Strong, Confident Woman!?
What do you think? Do you think it is a "Match Made in Heaven?" Can you think of any other songs or artists that would be a good pairing with Search:WWW? Can you think of another drama that would be well matched with Hwasa's TWIT? I want to hear your thoughts, please comment below.
