Everyone knows someone that is into Kpop. I have to be honest, I kind of like it, too. I’m not up on which bands are big, save for BTS. I saw them perform at the Grammys, on television, and I like some of their music. It is quite catchy, and their dance moves are pretty cool. They are a little different than the boy bands in the US from the past like NSYNC. Why are the Kpop bands so popular?
Their style fits what the younger generations are looking for in terms of fashion, music, dance moves, you name it. I mentioned NSYNC. I was in high school when NSYNC was popular. That was when boy bands were still functioning in America. After that, what you mainly saw were individual artists, hence Justin Bieber. Bieber is now out of that group of artists and continuing his solo career like Justin Timberlake from NSYNC.
There was one other boy band that caught on in the past decade in the US, but for the life of me, I can’t remember the name of the group. Kpop is more than one band of course, and the genre of music is catching on like wildfire. Some of the bands have been producing music for quite some time. Yet what has caused the Kpop bands to be so popular in the US?
As mentioned, they represent just about everything younger generations are looking for in boy bands. They are catching on culturally across the globe and not just in their home countries. You know how fads and trends spread, so you might be thinking this was a follow the leader type deal. Well, that does have everything to do with fashion, but you have to remember that Kpop has continued to evolve, too, in order to meet the demands of what its listeners think is cool.
What Kpop bands do you listen to right now? I would like to explore more of the music put out by some of these bands. You might think that only teenagers are listening to Kpop, but that’s just not the truth. They are the ones going gaga over Kpop, hence the screaming girls thinking that life is all about Kpop artists. Yet everyone can enjoy this genre of music. It is quite interesting indeed.
It is amazing how much Kpop has taken hold of the music world. No other bands out there are as popular as many of the Kpop bands. For sure, the trend will lose some steam. The young girls listening to Kpop will grow up and have their memories. Kpop will not go away, but it will be left to everyone collectively who took the time to listen, including the younger generations who grew up with this genre of music. Some fans even go to a Kpop Merchandise store to help support their favorite band,
Are you growing up with this genre of music? Perhaps you appreciate this music as an adult like me. There are different types of Kpop out there, too, and so there is a world of music to explore. I mentioned BTS, and Big Bang is another one of the popular bands.
