do not know what k-pop? relax.. you will understand now!

The term K-Pop (Korean Pop) emerged in the '90s and is the meaning, in English, for the songs that come from South Korea, specifically. Since North Korea does not have much pop music of that culture. And if you think those songs are ancient Eastern traditions, is slightly wrong! The K-Pop has a mixture of various rhythms such as R & B, Rock and Pop Bubblegum (mixture of pop and soul, as were the Jackson 5).
It mostly consists of dance songs, clips full of choreography and visual artists with an overproduced. It is strange to see how they seem the embodiment of the popular anime (cartoon): hair color, men effeminate faces, full of clothes for what it ... But anyway, here in Brazil the guys really like!
Incidentally, Eastern culture has always had a placeholder in the hearts of Brazilians. Look: you turn on the TV and watch the anime, vai walking down the street and comes across a young man reading a manga, finally, at night, go with the guys eating sushi in a rotation, to lying? Just missing the music...
The artists often expand their Korean hits Japan only, which is closer, maybe he did not have to make sense of how successful here! Then you get into the mood for the K-pop evaluates only the list of some of the various Korean Pop artists.
