8 Misheard K-Pop Lyrics

One of the main problems of being an English speaking fan of K-Pop is not fully understanding Korean. Add the fact that music writers like to throw English words and phrases into the songs and you have opened the door to confusing the lyrics.

That’s why we made a quick list of misheard K-Pop lyrics we thought meant one thing at first, but actually mean something else.
