The Massive Popularity Of KPOP Music

Kpop bands have a massive number of fans in Japan and China where they regularly sellout concerts in large venues weeks in advance of their arrival. However, kpop is also becoming very popular in America, Australia, and Europe, as the internet has enabled more people to see the musical talent in South Korean. Kdrama streaming with English subtitles is particularly popular in America at the moment and many people living in the country first learn about kpop bands by hearing their songs played as the background music during various scenes in popular TV kdramas.

One of the main things that sets Kpop groups apart from western pop groups is that all members of the groups have to be exceptionally good at dancing. Energetic, professionally choreographed dance routines are a big part of the Korean pop industry and band members often have to spend up to 10 hours a day practicing their routines. It is not uncommon for parents to enroll their children in dance schools from the age of 4 to ensure they have a chance at becoming a member of a famous group when they grow up. The reality is that being able to dance is just as important, if not much more important than being able to sing if you want to enter the music industry in South Korea.

It is not a secret that the kpop industry gets a lot of criticism for the pressure they put on young singers to look good at all times. Many kpop members have to spend thousands on painful cosmetic surgery procedures and almost all of the female members have to be on very strict diets year-round to keep their slim figures. Members of K-pop boy bands also have to take extreme care of their appearance with many spending hours each day at the gym in addition to thousands of dollars on plastic surgery.

There are lots of great websites online where you can learn more about kpop music. You can also view lyrics for all the most popular releases and access the English translations. If you go to YouTube, you can watch music videos from South Korea’s biggest pop stars and groups for free. You are bound to be impressed by the dance routines and lights displays when watching footage from live concerts. You can also use the web to find out when your favorite groups are next touring in your home country.

Immerse Yourself In The World Of KPop Culture & KPop Music

What is the biggest band representing the KPOP music genre right now? it is BTS of course, and they were on AGT or America’s Got Talent at the close of last season. Any appearance that this band makes really brings a lot of attention. BTS made AGT blow up in popularity the night that they performed.

I like KPop music. I’m not the biggest fan and don’t claim to be, but the genre is interesting. The actual music that these bands produce is catchy, too. I also happen to like the style that comes with the music genre. It’s really interesting how these bands are set up, too. It’s a completely different culture than how things go down in America.

You see, when a boy band is formed in America, it is all about a few particular group members. They run their course, and they are not replaced. New band members aren’t typically introduced. With Kpop, however, that’s not the case. BTS is full of quite a few members, and the band gets new members from time to time as well.

It’s interesting how fans of BTS are devoted to both the individual members and the band itself. No one person is really the face of the band, and the way the band is handled, it could continue for decades. New generations could grow up with the newer members that consistently get introduced to BTS as a band.

From what I know about KPop, it seems that all the bands have the potential to be handled this way. There is not one mold or one way in which the bands are handled, but the point I’m making is about the culture. It’s also interesting to read about how KPop bands are formed initially. Those kids work hard to be selected, and Korean culture makes them work hard once they are part of a band, too.

There are cultural differences for sure between boy bands in the US and boy bands in Korea. It’s really neat how KPop has become such a worldwide phenomenon. If you haven’t listened to this type of music, give it a chance. It has many ties to what is popular right now with bands in the US. The beats are good, the music is good, and the lyrics are good. Step into the KPop culture, and see what you think about the music that is being produced.
