I've been trying to figure out the whole Kpop music scene now for about 6 months. It's a very fascinating genre of music that has incorporated many North American music influences, especially that of Michael Jackson, Madonna and Lady Gaga, along with Korean and Asian culture. There are a ton of videos online, many of them very very popular. For the teens in my family it all started with Korean dramas and then gradually led to the music.
Here are two of my favourite videos by 2NE1, a South Korean girl pop band. Formed in 2009, the group's acronym means "New Evolution of the 21st century. 2NE1 is comprised of four members, CL, Dara, Bom and Minzy.
I'll be featuring more of these in the coming weeks and months. Do you have any favourites you'd like to share.
