Kpop is Korean pop music, and is not only an interest to some people as it is a lifestyle.
Kpop groups can be made up of only boys (example BTS), only girls (example Girl's Geniration), boys and girls (example COED SCHOOL), or there can be a stand alone artist (example Jay Park). You don't have to speak or read Korean to enjoy Kpop (though I assure you that you will pick up a few words)!
If you watch and compair any three Kpop groups, you'll notice one thing. Dancing. Kpop artists always have a dance to go along with a song for when they preform it live, and many people will agree that it makes Kpop concerts all the more fun and entertaining.
TV SHOWS AND MOVIES
Kpop artists are often invited to be on TV shows such as After School Club. These shows will have the artists answer funny questions, or do crazy things. They're mostly just fun and entertaining, but you can also learn a lot about your favorite artists!
Kpop idols can also be asked to act in movies called Kdramas. It's always fun to watch your bias (see terms section) acting in a movie!
Now that you know a little bit about Kpop itself, let's go over some basic terms you'll need to know.
Bias: You're all time favorite artist (you also have a bias group)
Oppa: Brother, or boyfriend. You call your bias (if he's a boy) oppa.
Noona: Sister, or girl with a lot of admirers. You call your bias (if she's a girl) noona.
Hyung: What younger boys will call older boys.
