Teens without electronics viewed through K-Pop #KNK

They’re on a “mission” – survive 12 hours without electronics.  In their cases, it’s cell phones.  I can just see many of the teens I know reacting like this (if not worse), funny to see through the eyes of K-Pop group KNK.  (These guys are in their early twenties, fyi..)

Fortunately for me, my two teens are good without electronics.  Can you and yours?

So, while the teens are doing their own thing, I still find things from them to share.   It’s just an erratic thing until I find a whole sequence of things to share.  This summer is the summer of the KPop and the things I learn while my daughter is willing to share.  This group is considerably bigger than the other KPop groups.  Most have 7, this one started with 17 but currently has 13.

My daughter enjoys the girl groups, but not as much as the boy groups.  She says it’s the speed/tempo/beat of the music?  Something like that.  I’m trying to interpret teen, so, forgive me if something is lost in translation.  Anyway, here’s a sample from one of the girl groups.

My daughter is very much into KPop.  She’s been slowly introducing me to the music since I got my Jeep.  Why then?  She can plug her phone into my car and share her music through the car’s stereo.  She learned recently that one of the top groups (Got7) is coming to Atlanta.  By the time we found out, though, the show was effectively sold out. The only tickets we’re finding now are $300+ per person, so that’s a no go.  However, I decided it would be a good place to start and introduce the rest of the parents who, like me, are somewhat clueless as to what it is the kids are enjoying but interested in hearing about it.

This is the title track from their upcoming tour – Fly
