K-Factor An Exploration of K-Pop

This video includes Orchestral versions of Idol by BTS, Kill This Love by Black Pink and an encore with a medley of Red Velvet songs. Did I mention that SM Entertainment sponsored this event? Hugs Cohler was the Conductor.

    i sincerely love the percussion/xylophone bits in ktl as well as the vocal line's parts; they really created two sides with the rap and vocal parts. idol had awesome string utilization since it's perfect for classic music and blew me away with that crescendo at the hook. rv's medley just screamed perfection with fairy tale bliss. lol that audience gasp for bad boy's intro had me shook

    IDOL: It is like an opening or introducing the KPOP History🥰 KILL THIS LOVE: based on mv itself, its like a Majesty or Highnest vs theirselves. Ego vs Self like that. Also Rose part is like a girl crying and running. The violins before the last chorus are great too. RV Medley: over all its just like listening to a Disney background music medley. Full of fairytale, adventure and fantasy. Great Job!

    Aije Alcala People reacted that way because it was a surprise that they were going to end the concert with a Red Velvet medley. It made sense after the fact due to RV getting ready to start promoting their next comeback. The audience reacted to all the songs because they were all great.

    BTS Idol lowkey reminds me of James Bond,as if they dropped James Bond in Africa or in Brazil (due to the whistles) and he had this while he fights people. Kill this love is like Disney's The Descendants. The Red Velvet Medley is like a OST for a Disney Movie 😔✊
