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.
