A Spanish Teachers Top 10 Kpop groups (Male)

So today I wanted to write about my top 10 favorite KPOP male groups. Quick background, I got into Kpop about 3 1/2 years ago and I got hooked from watching Kdramas, (or Korean Drama shows). So if you're a Kpop fan, a casual listener, or maybe you've never even listened to Kpop, this list is just to introduce my favorites. Maybe you'll be persuaded to give some of these groups a listen. Okay, let's get started.

 Now this list is going to be going from 10 to 1. I love all these groups and think they are all amazing but the number one spot is going to be reserved from my ultimate bias group. I will write a bit about why I put these groups on my list.

10. Pentagon

I don't know why it took me so long to start stanning Pentagon, but they definitely deserve more love and recognition. They have some great songs. 

9. Monsta X

Monsta X is a group I just recently started listening to and I have to say they really are an amazing group.

8. Seventeen

Seventeen is one of those groups that have many members that all have so serious talent and dedication. One of my favorite Kpop dance videos is from Seventeens performance unit. If you want to check it out click the link to watch. It's really mesmerizing. 


7. BigBang

BigBang is another group I started listening to at the beginning of my journey to being a Kpop fan. I had their song Bang, Bang, Bang, was on repeat for literally weeks.

6. Super Junior

Super Junior is a kpop group that has really grown on me over the past few years. Considered a part of the "older" generation, this group shows that you can stay strong and still make good music years after debuting. They are still making great music, even with many members in the military. Being a Spanish teacher, I also love that they collaborate with Spanish speaking artist. Check out their song Lo Siento. It's amazing. 

5. IKON

Another great band that makes really great music. I find that many of their songs really just speak to me in different moments and I can really connect with the feelings portrayed in their songs. Kudos to the group for being able to display such raw emotion in their music. Some of my favorite songs are Love Scenario, and Goodbye Road.

4. Day 6

I recently started stanning this group, and they have quickly rose to the top of my list. I love their musical style and I think the members are so incredibly talented. 

3. NCT (includes all subunits)

NCT is a group that is split into many different sub-units. It can be confusing to new kpop listeners, but no matter what sub-unit is active or putting out music, they all bring hits to the table and that's why they snag the number 3 spot.

If you want to try listening to some of their songs here are some suggestions including different subunits: The 7th Sense (NCT U), Cherry Bomb (NCT 127), Limitless(NCT 127), Boss(NCT U), Baby Don't Stop (NCT U), We go up (NCT Dream).

2. Got7 and BTS

BTS

I know technically kinda cheating by choosing two different groups for the number two spot, but they really are very dear groups to me. When I first got into Kpop these two groups were the groups I started out with and I really love all the members and wish success to both groups. 

I seriously have so many favorite songs from these two groups, I would have to do a whole separate post to list them all. If you are new to Kpop, I will suggest a few that could possibly get you hooked. 

Got7 - Teenager, Lullaby, Eclipse, Just Right, Miracle, Stop Stop it, etc.
BTS - Dope, Mike Drop, house of cards, The truth untold, Boy with Luv, etc.

1. EXO (including sub-unit EXO-CBX)

I love EXO. This is the first group I started listening to when I got into Kpop. I spent so much time memorizing each member, watching Exo live, and listening to their music. I think they have a great range of music and every thing they put out, I love. Additionally, I love EXO-CBX and any solo music from the members. I just support them as much as I can because I think they rock! Plus, my ultimate bias in Kpop, D.O. is apart of the group. (P.S. I'm so sad he's going to be enlisting soon but I wish him the best!)

Again, I have so many favorite songs from Exo I would need to make a whole separate post. They just make so many great songs it's hard to choose. So I will just list a few that pop to mind, if you're new to kpop you can check these out.

Songs- Love Shot, Sing for you, Tempo, Ko Ko Bop, Growl, Call me baby, Diamond, Sweet Lies, Playboy, The Eve, etc. (I could go on and on. :) )
EXO-CBX - Thursday, Monday Blues, etc.

Solo stuff from EXO members:

Lay - Honey, Lose Control, What u need?

Chen - whole album April and Flower is golden!

D.O. - tell me

Chanyeol - Stay with me (with Punch and this song is on an ost)

Okay, that's my final list. Hope this was entertaining or helpful. Do you agree with my list? What would your top 10 Kpop groups be? Comment below!

Million Yen Women - Japanese Drama Review

Hey!

In this post I'm going to be reviewing a Japanese Drama called Million Yen Women, that I watched on Netflix. First a little background. One of my favorite things to do is watch TV. I love finding a good show and binge watching. I started watching Asian dramas my sophomore year of college and since then I've been hooked. I've watched dramas from Korea, Japan, China, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Pakistan, Philippines, and India. Now I don't exclusively like shows from these Asian countries, I still watch American shows as well, but I do find myself binge watching these more often because they are usually one season with anywhere between 10-30 episodes. Short and to the point. Now there are shows that are longer but generally that is the episode range. In addition, I also watch telenovelas occasionally, but let's save that for another post. Through my blog I want to review and recommend some TV shows that I truly enjoyed and I hope you will too!

Anyway lets get on …

A Spanish Teachers Favorite Horror Movies

Hey! So, I am an avid horror movie fan. I just love all things scary, creepy, and spine-chilling. Today I want to share my list of top horror movies. Warning: There may be spoilers below, so if you haven't seen a particular movie you might want to skip over it. (Most of these movies are pretty old but it's impossible to see every movie unless you're a horror movie buff like me.)


1. Nightmare on Elm Street 1 & 3
Honestly, Nightmare on elm street is my favorite horror movie and franchise. I just think the concept of a dream demon like Freddy is so smart on Wes Craven's part. I mean a serial killer that you can't really prove is even real. Freddy Krueger is also one of my all time favorite villains. I mean he is extremely scary but also funny. What more could you want?
2. Halloween
Seriously, Michael Myers has got to be one of the scariest killers in movie history. As good ol' Dr. Loomis says in the movie Michael is "...purely and simply...evil."
