Home > Blossary: Terms frequently used in K-pop
"K-pop" is an abbreviation of "Korean Pop", which is a musical genre that encompasses popular music from South Korea. It incorporates elements from several other genres, such as R&B, hip-hop, rock, electronic and dance-pop. It is also characterized by being a highly visual experience, since a lot of emphasis is put on the idols' appearance and dancing performances. It has been met with ever-increasing popularity since the 90s, to the point that it has been fueling — alongside South Korean dramas, films and technology — the advance of the Hallyu (Korean wave) throughout not only neighboring nations, but also the West. This blossary aims to define terms that are commonly used among K-pop fans.
