What is K-pop and why is it so popular?
K-pop, or Korean popular music, is a unique form of music that originates in South Korea and has since become worldly popular. It encapsulates all types of music from hip hop and R&B to electronic and rock that has quickly become popular in the Korean music world.
Korean pop stars are idolised in Korea and tickets have been known to be resold for prices sometimes more than ten times the original ticket, highlighting the popularity and following that it has gained. As well as this, tickets to the most well-known K-pop groups and artists sell out within minutes.
It is now a global phenomenon with Korean pop bands playing globally and receiving the same amount of attention wherever they go. The use of colour and costumes by the bands and artists has captured the attention of anyone who gives a moment to watch. With such refined graphics, costumes and make-up the popstars are made to stand out from the crowd as exceptional musicians.
The Korean music stars are also very good are conveying story and showing their true personality regardless of how it fits in to ‘everyday society’. Their songs are meaningful and often convey a strong message. Their personalities are often out for everyone to see. They express themselves in a unique way and this captures the full attention of the public as they begin to idolise these stars.
In conjunction with their outgoing personalities and eye-catching costumes, the stars of Korean pop bring a whole new meaning to fashion. Their outfits on a day to day basis often surpass that of their western counterparts, interpreting modern trends in their own way. They don’t shy away from standing out from the crowd and bringing in a new look, they embrace it and the fans take note.
The music itself is always catchy and easy to sing along to. Even if you don’t understand the words, the songs have such a catchy tune – and often the chorus is easy to sing – that it doesn’t matter as people will still enjoy themselves.
Combining this with exciting choreography means that fans are treated to a genuine show of talent and hard work all at once. Korean pop music stars are truly talented at what they do. We can assure you that going to a k-pop concert will be unlike anything you have ever seen before in your life!
The success of these Korean stars lies behind all of the hard work that they do before entering the scene. They are groomed and mentored by managers and agents prior to recording their first single so that they are well equipped with all of the right tools. This intensive training makes the artists appear to be experienced performers by the time they enter the music scene.
This is training is critical to the complex dance moves that they perform on stage during routines. These stars are often able to dance as well as professional dancers do and they have the talent to sing whilst they do it. This adds a unique element to the Korean idols and contributes to their popularity.
Many of the stars are also acting in conjunction with their music career. They are just as skilled actors as they are singers and dancers and this adds to their already impressive resume making them even bigger stars and increasing their popularity.
The final trait of these Korean music stars is that many of them are multilingual and will include phrases from western languages in their songs. Because most students are required to learn English from an early age, they are able to smoothly include English phrases into their songs.
This helps them to connect with the rest of the world on a global scale, broadening their reach and therefore increasing their popularity. It’s easy to see why Korean popular music is so popular due to its adversity, creativity and catchy beats. This type of music is extremely inviting and ensures that everyone who wants to be included, is indeed included, no matter who you are or where you come from.

Their attire can also be quite extravagant but can also be simple and quiet with a few funky elements. Their styles range from classy, to girly, to preppy and even laid back swag, however they are forever changing and adding new elements to their style to keep up with a new trend in the clothing world.

How to style your K-pop clothing
When styling your K-pop clothing it is important that you fully omit to a style and do not try to only do little parts of a style here and there. The idols are always committing to a style and it often entails their hairstyle as well as their attire.
The first step is to determine which star you are going to model your style on. Identifying how they dress is crucial to successfully replicating their look. The next step is getting a new hairstyle. Each Korean star has their own hairstyle and it’s important that you do the same.
This may involve colouring your hair and styling it every day but when it comes to looking like your favourite Korean music idol it is definitely worth it. If you don’t want to do anything too permanent to your hair, a good alternative is chalk/ temporary hair dye. This type of hair dye will usually come out after a couple of washes. This also means you can have different colours every week!
If you’re not sure exactly how you want your hair, it is always possible to go to the hairdresser and ask them to model your hair on your favourite idol. But remember that everyone’s hair is different, so do not expect you to leave the salon looking exactly like the picture you showed the hairdresser, it’s okay to add a little bit of your own style to it as well.
Once the hair is complete, it’s about matching the merchandise of your favourite artist with the genre of every day clothes that they wear. This is where determining whether the look is classy, swag or over the top is crucial.
It often takes a lot of confidence to go out and fully embrace your favourite stars look but it is always worth it. Getting a group of friends together to all go out in a themed look is often a great way to help each other fully embrace the Korean popular music look without the fear of embarrassment.
