GTKPC: So Much K-Pop!

While we’re getting to know PyeongChang, we also have to get to know K-Pop, Korean pop music, which is super-infectious and fun to listen to. Last month, the Korean Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and the Korea Tourism Organization hosted the 2018 PyeongChang K-Pop Festival–which was held in Seoul, actually–to help the world get to know modern Korean culture.  Let’s take a look at some of the performers:

 

The Wonder Girls have a pretty complex history, with members coming and going, injuries and health issues, and even a long hiatus. This song is “Why So Lonely” off their 4th album, which came out earlier this year.

 

WSJN also goes by Cosmic Girls and released their first mini album earlier this year. This group is enormous–13 people who are grouped into four units called Wonder, Joy, Sweet and Natural.

K-pop’s not all girls…you’ve got the boy bands too! Here’s Boys Republic:

And SHINee:

Catchy stuff, right?
