Transcript of History of Korean pop music

History of Korean pop music History Korean popular music was influenced from other countries, especially the United States and Japan.
An old-fashioned style of Korean pop music called Trot.influenced by a Japanese popular music of Enka during Japanese rule over Korea (1910-1945), was popular in South Korea until the 1980s As Korea was liberated from Japanese annexation in 1945, the country was divided into two nations: North Korea and South Korea.

After the Korean War, which started on June 25, 1950 and lasted for 3 years, U.S. troops remained in South Korea for protection. With the continued presence of the U.S. military, American and world culture began to infiltrate South Korea. During this time, Western music became more accepted to a wider crowd of young adults. Improvements in the recording systems encouraged the production of LP records in the 1960s The founding of South Korea's largest talent agency and record label, SM Entertainment, in 1995 by Korean entrepreneur Lee Soo Man led to the first K-pop girl groups and boy bands. By the late 1990s, YG Entertainment, DSP Entertainment, JYP Entertainment, and FNC Music had burst onto the scene and were producing talent as quickly as the public could consume it. According to Mark James Russell from the global politics magazine Foreign Policy, K-Pop has now spread to the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and parts of South America. He acknowledges that Korean popular culture "may not yet turn heads in Los Angeles or London" and claims that "the West is actually late to the party".However, this may soon change because K-Pop's influence continues to spread as it finds more fans in the West. because, One of the biggest examples of the globalization of KPOP is the emergence of PSY's "Gangnam Style" on the market.

The Kim Sisters, Yoon Bok-hee and Patti Kim were the first singers to debut in such countries as Vietnam and United States.This resulted in the introduction of more folk singers, such as Chang Sik Song, Young Nam Cho, and Hee Eun Yang. In 1977, the Seoul International Song Festival was launched, which encouraged cultural exchanges with other countries. In 1980, the Asia Music Forum was launched. In the 1990s, early versions of Korean pop incorporated American popular music styles like rap, rock and techno in their music.Since the debut of Seo Taiji & Boys, multiple singers began to switch their positions while singing and dancing, a strategy called "formation changing" and a turning point for the establishment of K-pop style choreography.
