Riot games got popular because of K-pop. Especially League.

K/DA pop stars has 571 million views/ half a billion people watching it.
It was sung by G-Idle a K-Pop group that is older than Le Sserafim.

If any of you never heard of Blackpink or BTS, they get over 1 billion views for every single MV they release.

Blizzard is very smart to take on this K-pop wave right now. It doesn’t matter that most of Blizzard’s fanbase are not Gen Z and don’t like Kpop. What matters is that it is going to attract newer players to WoW (or other Blizzard games) and in return give more recognition to Blizzard.

Now that Le Sserafim has performed at Blizzcon and they even made a MV for Overwatch. I feel like K-pop has officially integrated into Blizzard now.

This is a thread we discuss all things kpop related and we can recommend songs just for fun.

Some of my personal favorite kpop songs (not all):
Dreamcatcher(드림캐쳐) ‘Scream’ MV - YouTube
BLACKPINK - ‘마지막처럼 (AS IF IT’S YOUR LAST)’ M/V - YouTube
BTS (방탄소년단) ‘피 땀 눈물 (Blood Sweat & Tears)’ Official MV - YouTube
(여자)아이들((G)I-DLE) - ‘퀸카 (Queencard)’ Official Music Video - YouTube

This Gen X likes BTS, Tomorrow X Together, among others. KPop has come a long way since when I first heard it some time ago. :wink: But I love music, so feel good music is good music, and can go beyond generations.

I’m glad you all enjoyed their performance and video (assuming you did. :wink: )

Sadly, our icons never returned after the forum upgrade. Same Neth… It’s been nearly 17 1/2 years at Blizzard. Still here somehow. Shhh… don’t tell them. :wink:

You no take candle!

Some are, yes. Not all. It reminds me of when MarineKing, if I recall correctly, (OG StarCraft Pro) had to go in.
