K-Pop. K-Pop. K-Pop.

There are so many reasons why K-Pop “slave” contracts should be made illegal and I believe there is so much evidence to prove that they exist and why they shouldn’t be used anymore.

South Korea’s music industry is slowly, but surely becoming internationally popular. K-Pop. If you’ve never heard of K-Pop, you will. You’ll find that one song and soon your phone will be filled with them. You probably won’t understand a word of it, but it doesn’t matter. Music is music. How do I know this, you may ask. This was me. As I write this post, I am listening to K-Pop.

From colorful outfits, to catchy tunes, to perfectly choreographed dances, to girl groups with 9 members and boy groups with 12 members, it’s hard not to fall in love with some aspect of K-Pop. As much as you wish you didn’t, you can’t help it.

I know what you’re thinking, “A boy group with 12 members?! How do you remember all their names?” It’s crazy, I know. Just know it’s doable. In our western society, we’re use to boy groups with only 4 or 5 members. Like Backstreet Boys, NSYNC and One Direction. But K-Pop is more of a, go big or go home, type of industry.

However, K-Pop isn’t all rainbows and sunshine. There’s a much darker side to this industry.

  1. Your topic is very interesting to me. I come from a country where Kpop is very well known and my self enjoy listening to Korean MV quite often even without understanding the lyrics. I will keep following your topic to see what ur point until the final end. Fighting.

  2. A very interesting and unique choice of topic! I like how you explain some background to K-Pop for those who don’t know about it. I enjoy listening to some K-Pop songs myself so I never really thought about what they go through behind close doors as it does convey ‘rainbows and sunshine’, so this will very interesting to read further about in terms of their rights and freedom. Your writing style is very inviting, casual and approachable which makes me want to read more.
    I look forward to the rest of your argument 🙂

  3. This is a good introduction in the way for a person like me who doesnt know so much of k-pop regarding what it sounds like, what the groups are like or what kind of messeges they are choosing to send out through their catchy tunes. But with this introduction I get a clear understanding of what K-pop is. I also like how you describe K-pop as a “go big or go home type of industry” giving me the idea of k-pop being a pop genre that stops at nothing but perfection with everyting thing they do and release. Your use informal language and a casual writing style makes me find this blog even more interesting. Good work.
