kpop, a playlist: kard, the perfect margarita-sipping soundtrack

today is national margarita day. celebrate by breaking out the salt and putting on our kard playlist

For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure yet, meet KARD. They’re a coed kpop group that debuted in 2017 made up of 4 members: BM, Somin, Jiwoo and J.Seph. And there is absolutely nothing else like them in kpop.

It’s not just because they’re a coed group either. KARD has a super unique sound that combines classic kpop with everything from Bollywood to Latin rhythms. The latter is why we’re here–it’s National Margarita Day here in the states, and tonight we intend to sip while listening to one of our favorite groups. We want you to do the same–even if you don’t have a margarita at your disposal.

Here’s a rundown of what we have for you:
