KPop = Korean Pop

So, this is a parent looking at KPop as a generic movement.  My first thoughts when I started watching the videos and hearing the music was that it reminded me of the boy groups in the 80s and 90s.  The big difference, though, is that it looks like Korea has a farm plan going for these groups.  Kind of like baseball with the pro teams having their AAA teams farming the upcoming stars out.  They create new groups fairly regularly, to replace those that aren’t gaining the attention (or that have members that retire), though they also use the farms to replace members of groups.  Knowing that, I’m not sure what to think about the kids that retire or go to “normal” life after being a KPop star.  Hopefully, they aren’t just dropped to figure out the world after growing up in the music industry.

At any rate, if you can get past the language barrier, the music itself is reasonably enjoyable.  Assuming, of course, that you don’t mind girl/boy group pop music.  If you go to youtube, you can, of course, search kpop and find all sorts of groups.  There are a lot of them.  I’m highlighting the ones my daughter thinks should be mentioned, except for this one which came across my newsfeed and I decided to add in.
