America vs. Korea?
So, today at work I was watching bts, and a coworker came and started watching it with me. My coworker started asking me why I liked watching Korean things, and I said because it different from American things. And of course he asked me to explain, but I had no response! I know they're different besides the languages, but I had no idea how to explain how to him, and he told me to just tell him when I knew how to explain it xD Could you help me explain it? What would you respond?

I would say the music speaks to me in a different way the American pop. Kpop is it's own generation I feel like it was made just first me. the k-stars are AMAZING in every way the things they do opens up a new window of life saying it's OK to be different! it's OK to like different! it's OK to be ME!! that's why I watch, listen, dance to, learn, and love Korean shows, music people and so much more 馃槏馃槏馃槝馃槝馃挒馃拫

Its different because you get to interact and relate with the idols... specially when they are in shows, because TV programs are also different and they show you how they truly are, and work together or how the group functions... you get to know them more and their secret or hidden talents, you get to see their wacky sides, you get to see the real them...(get to know them in a personal level, which not many American artist don't like to show sometimes because then they feel like those are their weakness). You get to see them grow along with you, and get to see what they struggled to get where they are... and like @JennyRodriguez there is a culture difference.

Not only is the way they start to be idols is different but they also train for usually years before they're out into a band to debut. Then they practice even more between complex and synced choreography to actually singing the songs. The production of music videos are almost treated as movies and a lot of groups go on reality TV or act in dramas. And not only do they dance, sing, act, but a lot of them compose their own music and lyrics. A lot don't get to see they're parents much after they debut because of they're schedules and/or company. It takes such self discipline, dedication, talent, and a love to live such a busy life for music. They're not just artists but they're idols.
