Transcript of KPOP!

What is K-Pop? Korean pop music!
Usually has a very catchy beat and melody.
Most songs have at least one line of English in them. Who listens to K-pop? I do! :D K-POP! Megan Moseley Why listen to K-pop if you can't understand what they're saying? K-pop fans are generally open-minded, and are able to appreciate the music just for the music. The fact that the singers are speaking a different language doesn't make the music any less awesome to us. The Harsh Reality of Being a K-pop Idol Now that we've got the intro down, let's dig a little deeper. What does it take to become a K-pop star? Is it as easy as you would assume?
All I can say is that it's completely different from here in America, where you can get famous by simply posting videos of yourself on YouTube. Image A big part of K-pop is the image.
Female stars usually wear overly short shorts, while the men usually wear cool outfits, suits, or are shirtless.

K-pop stars are called idols, and for a good reason. They try to represent an image of perfection, and therefore, even the boy idols wear make up.

And that leads us to our first video, "Electric Shock" by f(x)... 20% Time: Mariela Kridzelis and Abby Labonte do, too. In fact, K-pop is rapidly growing in popularity and there are millions of fans worldwide. Not All K-pop Groups Make it to Fame... Some Are More Successful Than Others... Though male k-pop groups are mostly for girl listeners, there are quite a bit of boys who listen also.
Boys are more likely to listen to the girl groups out of any of them, though, because the female singers are often very attractive, and wear cute clothing. In 2013, Block B filed against Stardom Entertainment, their company, at the Seoul Central District Court, stating, “During the signing of the exclusive contract, it was promised that in addition to providing proper training opportunity and facilities, we would be paid on every 25th of the following month… However, the agency has not paid us for nearly one year..." Idols also can't be in relationships, as it will lead to a decrease in their fanbase. Becoming a K-pop Star To become a member of one of these bands, young children go through years of grueling training – all without any guarantee of success in the end. During that process, the company may require the aspiring star to live in a boarding house with colleagues, go on a strict diet with regular weight checks, and put in more than 10 hours of practice a day. The last video was by a group called "Block B", and they are one of my favorite groups, and have gained many fans in the short period of time of their debut...but they have had some bad luck while trying to make their mark in the K-pop industry. In addition to them not being paid, Mr. Lee, the CEO of the company, was reported to have collected 66,000 USD from the member's parents, but no one saw where the money went or what it was used for. Unfortunately, on May 20, 2013, it was reported that Mr. Lee had committed suicide. Block B immediately began receiving backlash from fans who claimed that they had "driven" Mr. Lee to commit suicide by filing the lawsuit, and that they should disband. Another Example... A.K.A.
Jiyong... Girls Generation (SNSD) Super Junior SHINee 2NE1 He's Also My Favorite Singer... G-Dragon always makes his videos unique, and lets his personality shine through.

Which leads us to our final video... He is one of the most popular K-pop artists worldwide~
