Day 27: A song you make fun of

To be honest, as much as I love K-Pop, I can’t help but make fun of it. I think a true fan of something can laugh at it when they recognise that it’s either not that good, or just unintentionally funny. For example, take a look at the way English is often used in K-Pop in the clip below. Fortunately, this is improving, but in the early days of K-Pop you’d have a hard time understanding what was being said as an English speaker! (Feel free to ignore the uploader’s comments in green, just pay attention to the lyrics in white).

Secondly, K-Pop is really well known for its misheard lyrics. Often these are Korean lyrics that just happen to sound like English words, and sometimes they’re mispronounced foreign words. The main problem is that once you’ve misheard the lyric, it’s very hard to hear it back the correct way!

Of course, this isn’t something that’s unique to K-Pop, you can find instances of both of these things in English songs. It just happens to be more common in this genre. Do you know any misheard lyrics or bad grammar that you always notice when listening to a song?
