Watch This! The New Edition Story

A you a big fan of Boy bands? K-pop? Pop in general?  Have you heard of New Edition? If not you should. Considered the trailblazers of the modern boy band  New Edition was founded in 1978 in Boston, MA. Unfortunately like many pioneers they are often forgotten and the credit given to those who became more “successful” in their wake.

Their former manager Maurice Starr went on to create another boy band comprised of members of the caucasian persuasion named New Kids on The Block who became a huge success and the face of the boy band  in the U.S.and around the world.

All you K-pop and boy band fans should watch this movie to get a little history.

Let’s go back…..Christmas in 1999

Christmas 1999 the last Christmas before the millennium  and in the K-pop world SMTown’s  first Christmas album Christmas In SMTown.com. Featuring the hottest artists of time and the original pioneering groups of K-pop.

I like how music video gives the feeling of the SMTown  artists as an family.

Even though these next songs are from  albums  released in 2000 and 2001 it still has the 90s vibe their predecessor contains.

One of my favorite Christmas songs. I even include this song in my Christmas mix for Christmas parties lol.

Another great music video with the SMTown “family”. Angel Eyes is not your typical sounding Christmas song but is upbeat and joyous (and it also sounds like songs from the  Sonic R video game lol).

Do you have any favorite K-pop Christmas songs?

 

Merry Christmas!
