Which KPOP group\act pulled off the 80s\retro trend the best?

  • In the past year or so there have been multiple groups releasing retro\80s inspired albums\songs due to the popularity of songs like Don't Start Now, Blinding Lights, etc worldwide. But which groups do you think pulled it off the best?


    IMO:


    EVERGLOW(La Di Da) - I think this is probably the BEST song that was released during this retro trend period. I was pleasantly shocked too because I didn't really like many of their songs beforehand. It really reminds me of a Korean Blinding Lights and I LOVE that song.


    GFRIEND(MAGO) - Probably one of the best disbandment songs of all time. The whole shift in sound and concept was something very new for Gfriend, considering they were known for their schoolgirl concepts and anime intro-like songs very early in their career.

    For days on end I couldn't get the chorus out of my head and the styling was really great too. I really stanned them after this but then they disbanded </3

    I love the album too, their best.


    TWICE(I CAN'T STOP ME) - I still have this and the EYES WIDE OPEN album on repeat like a year after release lmao. It aged really well and the production is immaculate. :yesr:

    simple is best, less is more, you know?

  • I really wanted to like ICSM and Latida but i ended up disappointed. They're not flop songs, just not as good as their previous comebacks (More and More and Dun Dun) so i was let down. I was particularly let down by ICSM cause i was SO HYPED from the teasers, but the song ended up sounding nothing like them.


    Except for rock which will always be #1, retro is literally the best thing to happen to Kpop. I hope it continues.


    Mago, Star by Loona, and So Bad by StayC were my favorites from 2020. All three are SOTY contenders. Sunmi's Ppoporipam deserves honorable mention.


    This year, i loved Dun Dun Dance, Chi Mat Baram and After We Ride from Brave Girls, and this song nobody knows about from Rocket Punch is slowly rising up my playlist:

    Edit: this is focused on the synthpop 80s trend rather than the disco trend because that's another retro trend altogether.

  • I didn't notice that the pporappippam MV had direct reference to Winner's Baby Baby MV until today. It's the part with the fireworks and the car on the road as well as the fireworks reflecting in Sunmi's eyes. In the Baby Baby MV, Taehyun is driving a car on the road in the midst of fireworks and the fireworks reflect in Seungyoon's eyes.
