The K-pop Club is back, and many Rosemont K-pop fans seem to be excited. The first meeting was held a couple of Fridays ago in Room 6201, where Ms. Cheon is the Korean Language teacher. There were many people (K-pop fans) who came to this club. In this club, people write down K-pop songs they want to listen to on the whiteboard. Then, Ms. Cheon plays it for them randomly on the TV. People requested songs such as Queencard by (G)-Idle, Back Door by Stray Kids, The Best Thing I Ever Did by Twice, Unforgiven by Lesserafim, and O.O by Nmixx, which are all well-known and loved songs in the K-pop world. She mainly turned on dance practices. Many people seemed to enjoy listening to the music. Two girls even got up to dance to some of the songs. (Memorizing K-pop choreographies is something that fans do.) Although the club members didn’t get to listen to all of the songs on the whiteboard because of time shortage, many people enjoyed the club and the music.

Many people enjoyed the music, but unfortunately, not too many people enjoyed this club. A 7th grader, who loves the trending girl group NewJeans, went to the K-pop club and came out disappointed. “I’m never going to the K-pop club again!” she exclaimed. “All we did was listen to K-pop. I can easily do that at home. I expected something more exciting. I honestly wouldn’t recommend it. But the music was good!” It seems that many people liked the music, but were disappointed in the club itself for being so simple. Another girl, who is also in the 7th grade and whose favorite group is Tomorrow by Together, gave her opinion about the K-pop club. “It’s [the K-pop Club] trash,” she said. “Like, I can easily listen to K-pop at home through my phone. I’m not gonna go again. The songs were okay, though.” However, not all people disliked this club. Another 7th grader, whose favorite group is Stray Kids, expressed her positivity for this club. “I really like it! It’s fun to learn new songs and choreographies. I can also find new friends who like the same groups that I like.” Overall, the K-pop Club is on the right track, but it needs to reach a little higher to touch the stars and shine.
