Curious about K-pop but don’t know where to start? Longtime veteran of the most interesting genre in music? Just an all-around happy-go-lucky music lover in general? Well, you’ve come to the right place because it’s an exciting time in the world of K-pop.

Since we at Celebuzz! love any and all music, every week we’ll be taking a look back at the best things that happened in K-Pop. This week’s highlights include: the new boyband NCT U, Conan O’Brien and The Walking Dead’s Steven Yeun’s surprise appearance in JYP’s music video, and much more!


SM’s new boyband NCT U have made their debut with “The 7th Sense,” and it’s killer. The boys in the subgroup (Taeyong, Jaehyun, Mark, Ten, and Doyoung) are not only super cute, but their choreography is so on point, flawless and simply addicting to watch. Following the release of their music video, NCT U (which stands for Neo Culture Technology) then released a performance video showing off their entire choreographed dance.

A second music video for their song “Without You” was then released, this time featuring Jaehyun, Doyoung, and the newly revealed sixth member Taeil. Watch them all below, if you haven’t already.
