Every now and then the K-pop community gets a present from the most unlikeliest of places – This time round it was from the music channel ClublandTV  on Sky 383.

As part of their “Generation K-pop” segment, a plethora of old and new K-pop music videos were shown on UK Television between 9:00PM and 12:00 midnight. From Song Jieun, Girls Generation and Wondergirls to EXO, VIXX and B.A.P – For people like myself who have a knowledge of the Korean music scene which spans back a good 14-15 years, seeing all the older songs which began the Hallyu craze was really  refreshing, with times changing the Korean music scene was becoming a little stagnant with similarly performed songs which is in complete demand for the latest generation of K-pop fans. But through this 3 hour insight of Korean pop music, there is a hope that maybe this generation of fans can see what they missed out on, and revel in the artist who paved the musical ways for their favourite idols that have debuted recently.

Below is a list of songs that was aired on the TV channel, with the links to their respective music videos.

Girls Generation – OH!
Super Junior – This Is Love
Wonder Girls – Like This
Brown Eyed Girls – Abracadabra
Sistar – Touch My Body
B.A.P – Power
Orange Caramel – Lipstick
EXO-K – Overdose
Hyunah – Bubble Pop
G.NA – 2Hot
Vixx – Error
Girls Generation – Run Devil Run
Songjieun – Twentyfive
Sistar – So Cool
SHINee – Lucifer
T-ara – Sexy Love
2NE1 – Fire
2NE1 – I Am The Best
Big Bang – Fantastic Baby
EXO – Call Me Baby
4Minute – Volume Up
BTOB – Insane
BOA – Energetic
Beast – Fiction
Miss A – Bad Girl, Good Girl
PSY – Gangnam Style
Girls Generation – The Boys
Big Bang – Monster
Girls Generation – Twinkle
Super Junior – Mr Simple
Kara – Step
GOT7 – Just Right
Apink – Hush
Girls Generation TTS – Holler
Beast – Shock
MonstaX – Hero

It was good to see some of those Korean classic pop songs that were once the hottest thing of the year; though it would have been nice to see a better mix between male and female groups rather than a whole bunch of female acts and a handful of male groups – I think they have a secret Girls Generation fan in the ClublandTV head office. Was surprised that BTS, Crayon Pop, TVXQ and Crayon Pop wasn’t included, but it was a nice introduction for many who possibly never heard of K-pop before.
