What is K-Pop?

Postby malinaflaming on Mon Apr 16, 2012 11:31 am

K-pop or Korean pop music refers to not only types of music but to a musical movement that swept South Korea in the early 1990s and continues to dominate. Much of the music is similar to what you’d hear on American pop radio stations, though more often sung or rapped in Korean. In fact, early versions of Korean pop leant heavily on certain American forms, like R & B, hip hop, and a little bit of rock and techno. Boy and girl bands, sometimes called bubblegum pop are very well received, but so are the contributions of older artists.

One of the first bands thought to have influenced the wave of k-pop was Seo Tai-ji and Boys. Seo Tai-ji is actually considered an icon of pop music, along the same lines as Americans might view Michael Jackson or Madonna, particularly at the height of their careers in the 1980s. Seo Tai-ji’s first album was released in 1992, and its danceable tunes were a huge hit. Other bands soon followed and hip-hop groups like Deux quickly gained huge audiences. Following American trends, a host of teen idols became popular by the mid 1990s, and k-pop has continued to grow.

K-pop (a shortened form of Korean popular or Korean well known music) is a musical class comprising of electronic, hip bounce, pop, shake, and R&B music starting in South Korea. Notwithstanding music, K-pop has developed into a well known subculture among adolescents and youthful grown-ups all through Asia, bringing about far reaching enthusiasm for the design and style of Korean icon gatherings and vocalists.

K-pop (abbreviation of Korean pop; is a music genre originating in South Korea that is characterized by a wide variety of audiovisual elements. Although it includes all genres of "popular music" within South Korea, the term is often used in a narrower sense to describe a modern form of South Korean pop music drawing inspiration on a range of styles and genres incorporated from the West such as Western pop music, rock, experimental, jazz, gospel, Latin, hip hop, R&B, reggae, electronic dance, folk, country and classical on top of its uniquely traditional Korean music roots. The more modern form of the genre emerged with one of the earliest K-pop groups, Seo Taiji and Boys, forming in 1992. Their experimentation with different styles and genres of music and integration of foreign musical elements helped reshape and modernize South Korea's contemporary music scene.

K-pop has gone a long run with great success and influence. Personally, I think K-pop can represent a good part of Asian pop music as it's been growing really fast and impressively.
