It's like Nsync right?
K-Pop is huge on Vingle, and as an avid Vingler, I've attempted to engage with K-Pop...but there is a lot I don't know. In fact I have no idea what or who it is. Is it a person?
Here's my not so professional, not so correct, but probably humorous interpretation of K-Pop.
Here's to my favorite K-Pop aficionados on Vingle
Feel free to make fun of me forever.
Ok so K Pop, short for Korean Pop music right? Cool...I think I get it.
So they must be like, boybands and stuff right?
I know Hyuna, she's pretty cool. Good style. That Bubble Pop song came on at some parties I went to in college.
But she's not a boyband, she's a solo artist.
So K Pop isn't just about boybands... in fact I've never heard of a Korean boyband...except Big Bang...right? They're a thing. I think they just played in New York.
Hey they're cute.
I'm also digging that Eagle sweater, so like...that's good right?
K Pop seems like a fandom thing where people get really obsessed with certain stars right?
I could get behind that, kind of like my obsession with Justin Timberlake. He was in a boyband.
If Justin Timberlake were a pop star in Korea, would he be a K Popper!?
I THINK I'VE CRACKED THE CODE.
So K Pop is a genre of music, a group of people and a way of life. I think, just like American Pop music, and the people who are obsessed with it.
Psy, also isn't a great representation of all K Pop right?
It's still catchy though.
