    Sexuality is for girls. Sensuality is a sign of the maturing woman.

    I love the move to sensuality in Kpop and I hope it sticks or at least weeds out the more overly sexed up stuff. I think it takes the right group that has talent and class to pull off sensual and those are the girl groups I like. I think you brought up some good examples of this. Exid’s Every Night quickly jumped into my top 5 of the year right next to Sistar’s Alone for being great smooth tracks from groups with vocal talent and a classy catchy choreography. Also I would like to point out that Secret quickly came back with Talk That after Poison got some backlash for overt sexuality. Talk That is a great example of sensuality used right, In my eyes the difference is that sexuality looks cheap (in that you are literally trying to sell yourselves without substance) and tries too hard to say “have me, I’m yours”; sensuality on the other hand takes a confident woman that knows she’s sexy but also has talent and goes about it in a classy way so that it rather says “come to me, if you think you can”. The dancing of both styles show this difference pretty well too. Sexy dances are legs open and chest popping with “hot pants”, while sensual is more side shots and body waves, and leg swaying. Don’t get me wrong, I love the eye candy of a sexy song and MV, but the girl groups that pull off sensual and confident keep my attention even more so than the “fierce” concepts and the songs are in my head for much longer. Just my overly complicated two cents.

    Sensual songs always stick with me for some reason (maybe its a coincidence!), the first time I truly gave Sistar any attention is when they came out with ‘Alone’ and my current favourite Exid song is ‘Phone Call/Every Night’, I love the jazzy feel to these songs though they don’t really remotely sound like jazz.

    Its so much more empowering to see women being portrayed as sensual than sexual personally…

    I’d have to agree with most of this article except for the part about Troublemaker.  Loved the song, hated the dance.
