Hello any and welcome to another Modern Seoul KPOP Song of the Week. This week we’ve chosen “Rum Pum Pum Pum” (첫 사랑니) by F(X) (에프엑스). It was released this past Wednesday July 24th and has already been viewed over 3.5millon times so far on YouTube (that’s roughly 1million views a day). Here are our reasons for choosing “Rum Pum Pum Pum” for our KPOP song of the week:

  • Firstly the song is catchy, fun and a perfect summer tune.
  • Secondly the videos style matches the song and it’s in a familiar f(x) style.
  • Finally F(X) have stayed true to their style and haven’t gone down a strange new road.
  • On the negative side; the video is a little safe and doesn’t really include any story but that’s only a tiny issue.
