Hello and welcome to this weeks Modern Seoul KPOP Song of the Week, the first for September 2014. Although there were a number of very interesting new releases this week, we’ve chosen the new release from Orange Caramel (오렌지캬라멜). The song is titled “The Gangnam Avenue” (강남거리) and it was released this Tuesday September 2nd. In the past 5 days the video has been viewed over 320,000 or 100,000 times on YouTube (depending on which video you view). Here are our reasons for choosing “The Gangnam Avenue” for our KPOP song of the week:
- Firstly the song has a fun dance vibe with a catchy chorus.
- Secondly the video it once again fun, well produced and the Cinderella style story is interesting.
- Finally Orange Caramel have found a interesting and popular niche in the KPOP market.
- On the negative side; it’s not gained a huge amount of interest as of yet. But we do hope it’s a sleeper hit.
