Purfles is the poor man's Bebop

It had to be said.




Rookie group Purfles debuted this week, and everyone slobbered all over themselves blabbing about how it's the best group to debut this year. And by everyone, I mean the five people I saw correctly spell "Purfles" on Twitter.

The trio has been winning people over with its fierce look and sound.




Their debut track "1, 2, 3" is good and all — certainly better than most of the releases from kpop's top veteran groups this year. I'm looking at you, SNSD.


You just had to shit on us one more time 
before dropping Sica, didn't you?


Purfles is a hot group, with a great song and a polished boxing-infused video. That's all fine and dandy. But this "Best rookies of 2014" talk? Nonsense. They aren't even the best trio to debut this year with a strong song and fierce boxing concept.

That honor goes to Bebop. Remember them?


Well you should, asshole, because I slobbered all over myself
blabbing about this earlier this year.


And if we're going to throw around the "Best kpop debut of 2014" label, it belongs to Mamamoo anyway, and then, why are we even talking about anyone else?


When will your faves?


Never —  that's fucking when.

  1. The sad thing is, these groups will probably stay nugus for the foreseeable future. Bebop will probably do better in Japan, considering their preference for girl bands, especially the hot ones.

    I found out about Bebop because some asshole keep spamming the clip of ayeon playing drums with the video titled as "hot korean girl playing drums".

    1. Ugh, it's true, especially for Bebop, I'm afraid. It sucks because these three groups are really strong.

    2. There is simply no appreciation of band music. If busker busker is considered to be good in Korea then there is not a single hope for bands in Korea.

      Especially AOA Black where AOA White won before Black.

    3. AOA Black was a thing of beauty. I still rock Moya every time it's on.

    4. I will never understand Korea's craziness for Busker Busker. They seem to treat them like gods over there. Whenever BB is mentioned in an article together with another groups, you would always see the other groups getting bashed for getting compared to BB. This is one of the reasons why South Korean's music industry will always be behind Japan. I swear to raptor jesus, if BB try to break into the Japan's or America's music scene, nobody will give a fuck about them. Not even indie fans will like them.

    5. Because the kpop industry murdered krock with hip pop boy bands and girl group who either trying be Korean Beyonces or generic jidols because jpop is banned from broadcasting

    6. "Because the kpop industry murdered krock with hip pop boy bands"

      I agree that boy bands should die, but 90% of 'krock' bands I've got to hear suck gigantic dick and they always will.

  8. When will Bebop have their next comeback? I quite enjoyed "I'm the Best".

  9. So how do you pronounce Purfles? This is a legit question.

    1. I'm notoriously bad at kpop pronunciations, but in my head, I've been saying it like "purrfulls." I'm sure this is wrong.

    2. I feel you. I only recently learned how to read BTOB a few months ago from a commenter here. I forget which article it was haha.

  10. Their song is okay, Bebop was better definitely. I really want to find some good rock bands or non pop. Found Bebop with that maem maem song first, they're good whether it's that style or rock.

  11. I didn't like this song at all, the chorus is the most annoying. Minx and Scarlet shit on their head.

  12. I read their name as "Pour less"

  13. (sorry for my previous misunderstanding) Thanks a lot Fany...I never know these three groups before ...and they are fricking awesome (^_^)

  14. Wow you people are brutal. Purfles are very talented and have amazing vocals that's why people like them. Not saying other groups don't have that, but people in these comments are seriously rude. Stop hating on people for liking a group lol?
