a abbreviation of korean music that consists of
'dance, electronic, electropop, hip hop, rock, and R&B music originating in South Korea"
a somewhat catchy genre, its bands usually consists of attractive groups of both gender. Through the Internet it has gained worldwide popularity. Being in korean, it has been untested if its fans understand korean or they have no idea what the songs are about. Described by the Times as 'catchy but derivative' it is possibly the shallowest form of music ever to gain popularity. Known to cause various facebook posts, usually in all caps, about how much they heart k-pop. The names of the bands are ridiculous, such as 'Big Bang', 'Girls Generation' and '2pm'. These are, respectively, a scientific theory explaining the expansion of the universe, a process of which girls generate, and a time in the afternoon when eating may be considered 'a late lunch'. These are the meanings of the names obeying grammar, but may have some other meaning to the South Koreans, but one can only fathom what they think it means. These are still ridiculous names compared to the names of other, non-korean bands.
