COLDPLAY IS NOW K-POP: here's what you need to know
So I was surfing around YouTube when I came across "K-Pop", which is Korean pop music generally sung by girl groups.
So I decide to expand my cultural horizons and view a few videos by a band called Girls' Generation. (Background: the band consists of a large number of leggy skinny girls, and they sing songs about boys and dancing.)
Then I realize there's something funny on the right-hand "recommendations" pane at YouTube:
So apparently, YouTube assumes that if you like K-pop, you must also like Coldplay.
That's pretty sad.
