The phenomenon of K-pop music video reached an all-time high thanks to a low-budget parody by a group of teenage girls from Thailand.

Their YouTube video mimicking the South Korean all-girl group Blackpink singing ""Ddu-du Ddu-du" has now amassed over 42 million views and 298,000 subscribers.

For the Blackpink, this brilliant video is the highest form of flattery.




Mommaem, Kungten, Som, and Kwang are between the ages of 7 and 12 and are from the town of Deksorkrao in Thailand.

The girls pay homage to the prop-heavy production of Blackpink's video by demonstrating their resourcefulness in using everyday household objects and outdoor equipment.



They've become quite the sensation on their own terms through their gimmick of masterfully recreating K-pop music videos. The girls prove that you don't need a massive production budget to make a memorable impression.

They're nailing the choreography, and their performances are on point.

Thanks to Kungten's older brother, Sitthichai Rakpinit, editing prowess, their parody virtually matches every angle and composition frame by frame.

Blackpink is a famous South Korean girl group consisting of members, Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa. The group formed in 2016 and were hailed as the New Artist of the Year at the 31st Golden Disc Awards and the 26th Seoul Music Awards, according to Wikipedia.

The original "Ddu-du Ddu-du" music video became the most viewed online video in 24 hours by a Korean performing group, and became the most watched music video of all time with over 36.2 million views within the first 24-hour period of its release, just shy of the record set by Taylor Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do" video.



Here's the video with a side by side comparison of the parody and Blackpink's original music video.

There's no shortage of excellent horror fiction out there. Recently I read The Terror by Dan Simmons and can't remember the last time I felt that claustrophobic and nervous. But I am also a fan of quite a few classics. Are there any other horror books that capture grief as effectively as Stephen King's Pet Sematary? What other book evokes folk horror as beautifully as Thomas Tryon's Harvest Home? Let's not forget this wonderful classic: The Haunting of Hill House. I could rave about that one (and Shirley Jackson) for days. All of these books left their mark on me and yes, I'd include them on a list (if I were to make one) of some of the scariest books I've read.

People had their own opinions to share––and books to recommend––after Redditor Tylerisdumber asked the online community,
