This Is Why You Hear The Same Word At The Beginning Of All Your Favorite K-Pop Songs

Did you notice this? 😳

If you’ve ever paid close attention to some of your favorite K-Pop songs, you might have noticed the same mysterious phrase, “Moonshine,” being called out at the start of each song…but what does it mean?

From TWICE to TXT, many K-Pop artists have worked with Swedish songwriting and production duo known as Moonshine, consisting of Ludvig Evers and Jonatan Gusmark.

Like many producers, Moonshine leaves their signature stamp at the beginning of songs they’ve participated in writing, producing, and more. However, there’s a reason you might not have noticed this until you listen really closely.

The word “Moonshine” is integrated almost seamlessly into each song’s intro to the point where it sounds like part of the music.
