Last week, I wrote an article for Dallas Observer about Korean pop . The genre rose in popularity through the world in the last few years. PSY’s video for the song “Gangnam Style” increased Korean pop’s global profile and started discussions about the genre and the video’s satire of class in South Korean society.
At first, I posted videos of another popular K-pop group 2NE1 on my social network to raise interest. I later thought to write an article to foster interest in another Korean group trying to send an evocative social message through commodity-driven pop music.
