What is K-pop?
K-pop is an umbrella term for South Korean music and popular culture - and therefore includes not only pop music, but also other genres such as rap, hip hop, R&B and ballads. The spread of Korean popular culture is enormous, and is also known as Hallyu ('Korean wave'), especially in Asia and the United States. The biggest K-pop group right now is called BTS!
See you there!
