You have probably saw the news feed in your social media accounts many times filled with contents about the hottest releases in the world of K-pop music. Most of the time (if not all the time), you end up wondering why certain words or phrases are trending online, but a little bit of research will tell you that these are all because of the latest single or album launch by some of the biggest K-pop superstars of this generation.
You really do not have to dig K-pop music as much as the hardcore K-pop fans (or stans, in the Gen Z term) do to really appreciate the beauty behind its sound and aesthetics. However, you sometimes could not help but wonder why many people around you are hooked to K-pop music. For starters, the entire world has every good reason to be into this wonderful musical treat.
Language Barrier Is No Reason For You To Not Appreciate K-pop Music
The number one reason why some people do not get how K-pop music has conquered the entertainment scene in several countries is because most K-pop songs are sang in Korean. This will not be a problem to those K-pop followers who are willing to learn how to read and speak in Korean to really connect with their K-pop idols. However, for a regular listener to good music, it is important for one to understand what the performer is singing about.
If the lyrics are written in Korean, how else would other people appreciate the music, moreso include it in their everyday living?
The answer here is simple: no matter how different the language being used in K-pop music from the universally-accepted English language, the beauty of the songs simply captivate more people once they hear it. It has already become a special universal language of music.
The way the K-pop stars perform the songs are so unique and special that listeners would instantly be curious about the rest of their performances. Aside from the singing, the background music and over-all aesthetics of the K-pop music videos are more than enough to keep everyone interested to K-pop in general.
For the fans, loving K-pop music is more than just playing their favorite K-pop tracks all day, for it is already a part of their own little culture. Don’t be surprised if there are cleaning crew from well-known home cleaning services who are a big fan of K-pop and suddenly blasts an addicting K-pop song while they clean your house. If this were really the case, then you know that you have hired people with great taste!
The way they dress, the way they speak, the way they move, and even the way they think, K-pop music has this special way of invading one’s life for a very long time.
