So this year, GiCC have invited the popular K-Pop group ‘Smile and be Happy’ to kick off our K-Pop competition with a bang, gundam style…but what is K-pop?
What is K-Pop?
K-pop or otherwise called Korean pop is a musical genre of electronic, hip-hop, pop, rock, and R&B music originating in South Korea. In addition to music, K-pop has grown into a popular subculture among teenagers and young adults throughout Asia, resulting in widespread interest in the fashion and style of Korean idol groups and singers. So it’s not a drink? Nope, sorry – we’ll be selling drinks at the con though! Do I need to be Korean? Thanks to the internet, people all over the world now enjoy K-pop, even when they don’t necessarily understand the words, so in short answer, no!
