Abstract:

"'This is the book on K-pop everybody has been waiting for. It explains for westerners what K-pop music is really all about--a must-read!'"--Charlotte Naudin, PR manager for Torpedo Productions. K-Pop Now! takes a fun look at Korea's high-energy pop music, and is written for its growing legions of fans. It features all the famous groups and singers, and takes an insider's look at how they have made it to the top. In 2012, Psy's song and music video 'Gangnam Style' suddenly took the world by storm. But K-Pop, the music of Psy's homeland of Korea has been winning fans for years with its infectious melodies and high-energy fun"--Provided by publisher.
