K-pop, or Korean pop music, is a musical genre consisting of electronic, hip-hop, pop, rock, and R&B music originating in South Korea.
K-pop is characterized by a wide variety of sounds and styles, as well as its use of electronic music, dance, and Auto-Tune. While the music has been around since the early 1990s, the Korean wave, or hallyu, of K-pop began to spread internationally in the late 2000s and early 2010s.
K-pop has become increasingly popular in the Western world, with artists like BTS, BLACKPINK, and EXO gaining mainstream success. In the United States, K-pop has become one of the most popular genres of music, with concerts sell out within minutes and dedicated fan bases.
