Since I started listening to this type of music, I’ve been curious, but a professor at Busan University provided the solution.
I can recall my introduction to K-Pop. The view, which captured every movement of the young stars that emerged on the screen, complemented those piercing sounds in my head. I suppose the fact that it didn’t appear simple was what captivated me. How were they able to move that quickly while still smiling?
As I continued my research, I came across more organisations and artists who provided content that was different from one another but comparable in terms of aesthetic impact. I could only break out of that loop if I deliberately set out to do so.Even though I was successful, my mind kept going over everything I had done at the speed of light. I wondered, “Where did those sounds come from?” once more.
The answer came from SONG Hyangkeun, a professor at the Busan University of Foreign Studies’ College of Korean Language and Culture and the head of both the Korean Linguistic Association and the International Society for Applied Linguistics of Korea. That specifically occurred while he was delivering his speech at the Korean Cultural Center in Madrid. “Koreans love to sing.” This was the beginning of Pop’s explanation of K-history, the South Korean music history he says is the result of an evolution of sounds.
Today, the nation’s more than 33,000 karaoke bars serve as evidence of this population’s love of song. In reality, the Chinese papers Mr. Hyangkeun displayed in his discussion claimed that “Koreans like music, dancing, and alcohol.” In the same way that he also said, “If you want to get along with Koreans, you should sing to them,” while pointing to a foreign business tour leader.
K-Pop is a component of their popular songs, or those that are “the most liked and sung,” for the Koreans. However, it was first interpreted around the end of the 19th century when Western concepts were translated. Once turntables were introduced to the nation, a new avenue for musical expression.
They loved all of these songs so much that they decided to write their own in the late 1920s. However, it took until 1950 and 1960 for the arrival of American sounds to really fuel the success of all these singles. Music has evolved throughout history into a weapon that can occasionally be more effective than actual weapons. It has been exploited by society as a means of protest, and Koreans also went through this in the 1970s. Political and social instability began to emerge at that period. The younger generations attempted to establish their legitimacy through culture, but how can a clear message be repeated again and time again without getting old? the music.
