Is Ali Zafar’s ‘Game Bun Gayi’ Inspired by K-pop?

Ever since the teasers were released, the singer was hyping up his fans by giving a reference to K-pop, but is it really inspired by Korean pop music? Let’s find out.

Game Bun Gayi

Ali Zafar’s Game Bun Gayi ft. Alistair Alvin was released last week in collaboration with Free Fire, a Battle Royale game. Ever since the teasers were released, the singer was hyping up his fans by giving a reference to K-pop, but is it really inspired by Korean pop music? Let’s find out.

“Desi tarka with some k-pop looks and vibes!,” reads the YouTube description of the video.

Last week, Ali Zafar shared his new avatar with his fans, hinting that the song might have a touch of K-pop. Game Bun Gayi is a blend of hip-hop and electronic music, with pure desi vibes and lyrics. However, calling it K-pop or relating it to K-pop is overstretching it.

The only thing K-pop about this, if you ask, is the singer’s lavender hair color and dance moves during the pre-chorus and chorus.

Korean pop music is widely recognized for its upbeat music, superb choreography, and of course vibrant hair colors, but there is so much more to it and limiting it to a few categories is totally unfair. Rather than comparing his music to K-pop, why can’t we enjoy them both separately?

And do you know that you can get a chance to win a signed Free Fire t-shirt from Ali Zafar and a set of gaming headphones too?

There is actually a #songcovercompetition and #dancechallenge going on right now, where five lucky winners will get the above-mentioned gifts. To participate, you can register yourself here.
