11 Feelings Every Queer Twentysomething Will Relate To

The Wonder Girls are back as a four-piece band with “I Feel You,” the '80s hit song that you have never heard of. 

Just in case you’re not familiar with K-Pop and its legendary girl groups, the Wonder Girls rule Korean music and charm their fans with their retro-infused songs that are undeniably catchy even if you don’t understand 90 percent of what they’re singing. If this would be the case, the message and theme are open to non-Korean listeners who don't know any Korean word except kimchi or bulgogi.

Let's break down the music video and make it seem as if they're singing about the feelings queers have in everyday life. (HINT: "I Feel You" is just basically about a girl who 'feels' that her crush is 'touching' or surrounding her.)

1. When a foolish stranger asks you about your gender and sexuality, and you just smile and show them what you really are:

You're literally a neon-rockin' party down there!

2. When you come out as polyamorous:

3. When you stop caring about gender norms and just celebrate your freedom:

4. When you try to fit into the society and you basically give up in the end:

You're not fooling anybody.

5. When you destroy the norms by literally playing drums while wearing a maillot:

Blow 'em a kiss!

6. When your strict parents ask you what you really are and you're like:

JUST LET ME BE ME.

7. When you're completely fed up with patriarchy:

8. When a conservative politician tries to take your human rights from your community:

9. When you're burning from rage against the haters but you choose to cool off and look fierce instead:

10. When you catch someone of their hypocrisy and you judge them while looking cute:

11. When everyone around just endlessly throws buckets of hate at your squad...

and you just stood firm, strong, and continue to do you:
