In this series we remember songs that have been forgotten or were never even given the attention they deserved. Today's Hidden Gem is No Jam by Kisum
In 2015-2017 Kisum was EVERYWHERE. She was basically the Korean female Pitbull for two years and she was quite successful due to her popularity from Unpretty Rapstar. This song wasn't her biggest hit from that era but it was my favorite. It's super catchy and just lots of fun. Also hi Heize! The only thing with this song is there was an overused BTS meme about Jimin having no jams, so the ARMYs got carried away in the comment section.
Kisum is a really weird situation. She had was featured in lots of comebacks in 2017. Then all of the sudden she just stopped doing music essentially. In 2018 she only released two songs, one song in 2019, one song in 2020, and nothing since. In 2016 she made her acting debut in a Netflix drama, but hasn't done anything since beyond a variety show in 2019. It's just weird to see somebody who was everywhere basically completely vanish. According to her YouTube it looks like she lowkey released something 6 months ago, but that's about it. And I guess she streams on Twitch and plays for a football team.
