Hello and welcome to this weeks Modern Seoul KPOP Song of the Week, the first for August 2014. Although there were a number of very interesting new releases this week, we’ve chosen the new release from Hyuna (현아). The song is titled “Red” (빨개요) and it was released last Sunday July 27th. Since then it has been viewed over 3,400,000 times on YouTube. Here are our reasons for choosing “Red” for our KPOP song of the week:

  • Firstly the song has some high level rapping as well as an enjoyable beat and flow.
  • Secondly the video is certainly interesting if a little weird at times.
  • Finally Hyuna is maybe the best known member of 4Minute and at only 22 she’s already a big name KPOP Star.
  • On the negative side; It’s very similar to number of other recent releases.
