Here are 10 songs, according to Korean netizens, that have cringe-worthy lyrics that make them facepalm hard – in no particular order.

Ayo, GG! Should we get started? Omo- look at her. What made her cut her hair, hmm? Omo- Just look at her. She changed her style from head to toe. What made her do that? I’m so curious. What made you do it? C’mon, tell me!
