A different kind of pop
Friday, February 03, 2012 | Author: Dav

Recently I've been peppered by a different kind of pop, namely K-Pop. I blame MTV (MTV Asia to be precise) because they tend to lace their normal music video programms with K-Pop music videos.

From what I've seen so far Korean Pop (K-Pop) comprises of a special formula:
  1. Male artist - androgynous
  2. Female artist - as many as you can pack into a bus
  3. Female artist - legs, as many as you can pack into a bus
  4. Any artist - must be able to say these words in English - "Yeah. Oh baby. Yes. OK etc"
  5. Not afraid of glitter and makeup
Seriously, some of these Korean bands have up to 13 members.


Hi, can we just have the band in here please? Oh, you ARE the band?

Its not surprising that many of the female bands dress the way they do, its a multi million dollar (Won or Won, you pick) industry. Being sexy translates into more album sales, and more work.

For the Korean won before the North–South division, see Korean won.

I'm not going to throw around K Pop band names, that's what Google is there for. Super Junior, Wonder Girls, 4 Minutes by the way are just to name a few. Band shelf life goes from anywhere between 6 months to 10 years, depending on the Scoville scale of how hot you are.

One bit of news I found a little amazing while reading up on K Pop is that there have been plans by South Korea to weaponize it, just to annoy the hell out of North Korea. Just imagine playing Avicii - Levels, over and over again just because your idiot neighbor does home improvement work on a Sunday morning.

These aren't cute girls, they're actually Voltron in disguise.
You just need to know how to assemble them the right way

I think the boots market should be doing very well in Korea.
