STEP 1: VOCABULARY
K-TRAINING 101
BY SEDA PIAS AND SHANTEA MOFFETT
EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW TO BECOME A FAN AND CEMENT YOUR KNOWLEDGE.
STEP 2: HONORIFICS
STEP 3: THE SYSTEM
STEP 4: THE MUSIC
STEP 5: IMMERSION
When becoming a fan of K-Pop, there is some vocabulary you should learn to help further your understanding of the group dynamics and the culture from which they come.
In the Korean Culture, all people are taught to respect their elders. There are many ways they are taught to do so and understanding this will help you become a fan with more understanding of what is going on.
In Korea, the groups are made. Instead of bands forming of their own free will and hunting down a company to sign them, Korean entertainment companies will sign individual people and train them to become the best at singing and dancing they can be before choosing a group for them.
Now on to the more fun things.. THE GROUPS! This is what K-Pop is all about. Our idols. In this section you will learn about different groups and all their members. You will get a glimpse at some music videos and how hard our Oppas and Unnies work for us!
Now that you have a basic understanding of the culture of K-Pop and you've listened to some groups, it's time to immerse yourself in it. Listen to it, watch interviews, pick biases, read fanfic and above all else: fangirl hard.

HOW THE SYSTEM WORKS:
In Korea, when someone aspires to be an idol, they audition for companies. (Some major companies are SM Entertainment, JYP and YG.) The companies will either reject them or accept them and sign a contract with them. Once you are signed to a company, they will train you in dance and give you vocal lessons. You are now what is referred to as a trainee (most trainees audition young, about 5th or 6th grade). Training is very intense and often lasts years. After the company believes you are ready, they form groups. Once your group is chosen, most of your training will be done with the other members in preparation for debut. Debut is when you are first revealed as a group live on stage. After debut, schedules get hard. You have to do promotions, record videos, do interviews, travel for concerts and then go into recording again. It continues like this in cycles, until their contracts run out.
THE BASIC DYNAMICS OF A GROUP:
In a group, there can be anywhere from 1 to 17 people (though there surely could be more). Usually, there is one leader and one or more of the following: vocalists, rappers, dancers and visuals. Vocalists obviously sing, rappers obviously rap, dancers obviously dance and as you may have guessed, the visuals are the face of the group. The eldest typically gets the most responsibility and the maknae gets spoiled.
