K-Pop has become a real phenomenon in recent times and has spread like wildfire throughout the world. The spread of popularity of K-Pop artists can be rivalled with the biggest pop artists in the world, and Korean news is always trending; the waves and waves of the following seem to be rising every day.
A rise in popularity always has factors behind them giving them a boost, and K-Pop is no different. Not only do people look up to them for their looks and personalities, but they also follow them for beauty tips. Let us have a look at how the artists from the land of Kimchi and Korean Barbecues have taken the world by storm:
1) A Real Spectacle:
K-Pop as a genre is not just about music and lyrics. The overall package of K-Pop is filled to the brim with exciting acts, dance moves, and it is a sight to behold. All of the outfits they wear during their stage performances and otherwise become fashion news and sell out quickly. A K-Pop performance stands out from the rest of the world due to its over the top moves, singing, and various sound effects.
It is almost like a perfect blend of American Pop combined with the attitude of Brit-Pop topped with the dance-related performance of Bollywood. An overall power-packed act.
2) Mix of English and Korean:
There is something about music that mixes languages. K-pop songs always have a perfect mix of Korean and English, making them more accessible to a wider audience worldwide. Hearing a blend of two languages makes it much more interesting, and the songs are written in such a way where the transition from one language to the other does not feel abrupt or out of place.
3) Catchy Songs:
Certain songs have a way of getting into our brains and staying there for days, even if we have heard them once. K-Pop songs have a catchy groove and melody to them, which makes the songs stick into a person’s memory.
The addictive tune and music make it easy to hum along even if we do not know what the words mean. Such music always remains popular as it transfers its energy to the user with its popular beats, music and lyrics.
4) Talented artists:
In line with the point regarding their performances being stellar, K-Pop artists are not born with such abilities. They sharpen their skills and bring out their talents through training and practice. The artists are skilled in singing and performing over the top moves while maintaining expressions and portraying emotions as an actor or actress would. The celebrity gossip of K-pop idols is trending all the time.
These skills are brought together and formed in sync only after much training in their early years.
The phenomenon of K-Pop is here to stay and will inspire a whole new generation of young performers worldwide. It may have its share of naysayers, but the real essence of performance is that it should be entertaining. The energy, talent and skill of the artists from Korea are on full display and, without a shadow of a doubt, entertaining to watch.
