"BTS' 'butter' is 110bpm, stable. BLACKPINK is usually 130bpm, so I don't think they'll be allowed to play in the gyms."
Mark Savage, a music journalist for the BBC, published such a unique K-pop analysis on the 12th.
The Korean government's four-stage upgrade to the Seoul metropolitan area has attempted to analyze how the gyms landscape will change.
First of all, he introduced in detail the regulations that apply to fitness centers and the purpose of introduction.
"Songs faster than 120 bits per minute are not applied at the gym to prevent the spread of corona," he said. "Treadmill running machine is limited to 6km per hour."
He also explained, "It is a measure to prevent people from breathing fast or sweating on others."
He then said that eight out of the top 10 K-pop songs passed the speed test, considering which songs would be allowed at the gym depending on the bpm.
In particular, he said, "BTS, Korea's largest export music, is in a stable range of 110 to 115 bpm, while Black Pink is about 130 bpm, so it doesn't look okay."
Savage introduced himself as "a kind of person who wanders around the back seat and looks at the clock during exercise classes," and evaluated the bpm rule as "good news" for these people.
However, it was pointed out that 120-140 bpm of songs fit better in sports such as aerobics and jogging, and faster songs are needed in high-intensity sports such as Zumba and CrossFit.
Savage also released his own list of recommended songs.
On the list titled "Do you look for slow and cool songs that do not exceed 120bpm when exercising?" BTS' "Butter" (110bpm) was listed at number 1, Dua Lipa & Silk City's "Electricity" (118bpm) at number 2, and Robin's "Dancing on My Own" at number 3.
In addition to Justin Timberlake and Lady Gaga, a total of 15 songs were selected.
