Kpop stands for Korean Pop. It has millions of fans from across the world, and is so internationally popular compared to music from other places in Asia that there are in fact more Kpop fans outside of Korea than within. It is part of a big movement called Korean Wave, the spread of South Korean popular culture across the globe. The wave hit Asia first with dramas, but is now starting to hit the West, especially with it's newer girl groups and boy bands like Girls Generation, aka SNSD, SHINee and 2NE1.
But, the artists aren't happy because they are forced to train more than is healthy by evil agencies. But generally, this crazy training makes Korean idols very talented unlike slutty Japanese girl groups like AKB48 who can't even sing or dance.
Kpop idols are also beautiful, especially YoonA from Girls Generation. DBSK was an old Kpop band which has actually passed its peak after three members sued their entertainment company, the biggest, for slave contracts. Good thing, because they can't dance as well as the ultimate SNSD.
Kpop fans, however, are less glamorous than their idols because they are amongst the most crazed fans in the world, especially DBSK and Super Junior fans who booed at SNSD for being pretty because they were jealous. But now SNSD is more famous and is leading Kpop to the West with 2NE1 and SHINee.
Kpop is spreading to Europe!! Thousands of French fans want a concert over there! We must hold SM Town live in Paris!!

An enjoyable music genre from South Korea that some people seem to love to ruin for others.

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!

short for Korean pop music

Korean popular music. Music videos are more modest in kpop, and the Korean rappers talk about more than cars, money, and women.
The best kpop rapper is JoPD.

Term for Korean Pop Music
My brother's girlfriend from South Korea introduced me to K-Pop music that she had downloaded on her iPod.

K-pop is Korean pop music. having been gained popularity by the miraculous thing called the Internet, K-pop has been renowned worldwide for it's unique talent.

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.
Hey you gonna watch the new SNSD video tonight? Their singing ability is amazing, IMO

Yeah, I heard it's pretty hot.


k-pop is my preferred genre

Korean pop music. A term that covers and is used to refer to all kinds of Korean music. Has better variety than Jpop, especially in hip hop.
K-hip hop has Honey Family, Leessang, Jinusean, Park Myung Hou, Drunken Tiger, People Crew, X-Teen, and DJ Doc just to name a few.

J-hip hop has...Dragon Ash, Soul Scream, 19 Zip, uhhh...umm... -_-;
