Of course, kpop is Korean pop music, but what exactly is kpop, how does it sound and why should you love this type of music?

Korean pop music had its international breakthrough when Psy's “Gangnam Style” broke all records and also became the most viewed video of all time on YouTube. Since then, at the latest, Kpop has been an international phenomenon that has spawned music groups such as Girls Generation, Big Bang, BTS, EXO and SISTAR. These bands have won countless international awards and have established themselves at the top of international download charts.

In 2016, Kpop was the most searched and used hashtag on Instagram among all genres of music. Kpop is an international success!

Kpop videos are awesome

A lot of money is poured into music videos in South Korea, and the results speak for themselves. Kpop videos are huge productions, with fantastic costumes, backgrounds, colors and makeup that go perfectly with the video.

Kpop idols work hard for their fans

Before a Kpop band makes its debut, the members train for a long time as trainees in their record companies. Some train for ten years before releasing their first album. That patience and perseverance should be recognized.

Learn new words that you didn't know before

Fans call their male kpop idols OPPA, a word that women use to show respect and appreciation for an older man. The word FIGHTING is also often used, which means “hold on”, “good luck” and “fight your way”.
