'dance, electronic, electropop, hip hop, rock, and R&B music originating in South Korea"
a somewhat catchy genre, its bands usually consists of attractive groups of both gender. Through the Internet it has gained worldwide popularity. Being in korean, it has been untested if its fans understand korean or they have no idea what the songs are about. Described by the Times as 'catchy but derivative' it is possibly the shallowest form of music ever to gain popularity. Known to cause various facebook posts, usually in all caps, about how much they heart k-pop. The names of the bands are ridiculous, such as 'Big Bang', 'Girls Generation' and '2pm'. These are, respectively, a scientific theory explaining the expansion of the universe, a process of which girls generate, and a time in the afternoon when eating may be considered 'a late lunch'. These are the meanings of the names obeying grammar, but may have some other meaning to the South Koreans, but one can only fathom what they think it means. These are still ridiculous names compared to the names of other, non-korean bands.
The description above contains opinions. Everyone is entitled on their own.
k-pop fan: why u hatin' just shut up if u got opinion dont say , etc
1. People claim it is the best music ever and much better than American music, when they know damn well kpop was heavily influenced by American music. But delusional fans constantly go around being hypocritical by saying its okay when kpop stars rip of other artists, but go batshit when other people steal from kpop artists.
2. Crazy fangirls tend to claim guys as theirs and become suicidal when they learn their "Oppa" has a girlfriend he loves and does not give a shit about said fangirl. Said fangirls tend to generalize the Korean race and say Korean guys as a whole are the sexiest asian guys when they should know that is a creepy generalization. They also think all other celebrities from other countries are ugly compared to Korean stars.
3. About 65% of fans do not give two shits about South Korea, and if it was destroyed tomorrow, they would ask if (insert Korean celebrity here) is okay instead of thinking about the millions of respectable and innocent South Koreans who are not famous.
4. People who enjoy the genre have their nice kpop experience ruined by stupid people who do these things mentioned above. JUST LIKE HOW IT IS BEING RUINED FOR ME!
SERIOUSLY PEOPLE SHUT THE FUCK UP AND STOP GIVING KPOP A BAD NAME!!
Sane fan: -shoots girl- STFU
K-pop usually has music videos involving choreography, Multiple group members, and extremely attractive people. (Nevertheless, it also has it's share of solo artists.)
K-pop artists also have fanbases based on them, such as S♥NES, (Who are SNSDs' fanbase) They tend to get a bit pissed off when someone badmouths a certain artist.
People have their opinion on which music they like the best, But it is not fair for ANYONE to trash someones' preferred music genre. Even though I am A K-pop fan, I respect the American music industry (Except for some artists) and I'm disgusted how we treat each other this way. Have some decency.
Yeah, I heard it's pretty hot.
k-pop is my preferred genre
J-hip hop has...Dragon Ash, Soul Scream, 19 Zip, uhhh...umm... -_-;
