Trot (트로트), other wise known as 전통가요, is one of the oldest form of Korean pop music. It is distinctive in that the lyrics are purely Korean, unlike the modern Korean pop where the use of English is common.
Trot is associated with the ‘oldies image’, but with more and more modern pop icons (eg. Daesung) venturing into the genre, trot is being revived again.
Aurora is a new girl group that has just debuted under Hi-star entertainment and their first album is entirely trot, which makes it a refreshing change.
Go under the cut for more! ^^
Here’s the live version of their title song 따따블. It’s funny how their dance steps are typical girl-group style but yet their music is ‘oldies’. I’m still trying to get used to it ><
Definitely a group to look out for in the future! ^^
