Posted: May 21, 2012 in Uncategorized

A nice day to know a bit about K-pop music!!

Since 1995, the Korean government considered to promote Korean media and music industry as an export industry. K-pop (an abbreviation of Korean pop music) has grown as a most popular music among young age groups of Asian. Teenagers and young adults from Pacific Rim countries such as China, Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines are currently influenced and set by the K-pop trend of numerous hot and talented boys and girls bands and start imitating Korean fashion and music.

It is interesting to see the report from Youtube, only in 2010 the numbers of K –pop views on Youtube reached 793.574.005 around the world, especially from several potential markets as China and Japanese. To be quickly become aware of that great benefit, three giant Korean record companies (YG Entertainment, JYP Entertainment, SM Entertainment) decided  to break the Japanese music market by releasing albums in Japanese and launch wide marketing campaigns in the cherry blossom country. Although Japanese are quite keen to keep their young people’s culture from being influenced by Korean entertainment industry but it seems to be a difficult task for Japanese government, especially Korean entertainment companies seriously keep an eye on this potential market.

Let’s enjoy some music clips to see if anything special in K-pop attracting you as Asian teenagers and young adults:
