Spotify Playlist: K-Pop Work Out

Spotify Playlist: K-Pop Work Out

I’ve been focusing on my health journey for over 3 years now. It’s a lifelong commitment, one that has been difficult, but rewarding. It was hard to get over the numbers on the scale and focus on my health instead of how small I could be. Working out with a personal trainer for over a year gave me confidence in the gym and the knowledge of how to work out safely, when and how to push myself, and helped me improve my relationship with food.

I was given so many recommendations including a master YouTube playlist from Mel in Anime Land that had so much early K-Pop for me to try out. Unfortunately, a lot of these songs aren’t on Spotify so I made a much smaller YouTube watch list of songs from Mel’s wonderful and extensive list. I even had some individual songs recommended to me from some of my blogging friends! Then, like the universe had heard me, a few of my fellow bloggers shared their K-Pop playlists and favorite songs. Before I knew it, I had fallen down a rabbit hole of amazing Korean/English lyrics, sweet vocals, and beats that lifted me up.
