Share my KPOP Virus for you guys,,,,,
How KPOP Virus Work on you:
1. You will end up being addicted to the music and listen to their dull lyrics over and over again.
2. You will end up being like most of them. If severe enough, a person might follow them and undergoes plastic surgery.
3. You will end up spoiling your precious ears and the true meaning of songs and music in your mind will be condemned.
4. You will end up wasting your money just to dress and look like them,(change hairstyle,buy branded clothes,etc.)Awful.
5. You will end up shacking you head non-stop because you have already used to it when you always listen to those catchy beats that cover the voices of the singer.(Meaning that the catchy beats are better than their singing.)
6. You will end up being changed to a different person because you are influenced by it.(A negative person indeed.)
7. You will end up learning all those ‘lame’ dance moves which are completely unnecessary. (waste your time)
8. Most of all, you will end up turning into a K-pop fan. Opps, did I just type an extra ‘o’ in between ‘pop’?Whatever….who cares? After all, it does make sense.
The Korean wave Hangul: 한류; Hanja: 韓流; RR: Hanryu; MR: Hallyu) refers to the significant increase in the popularity of South Korean entertainment and culture starting in the 1990s, in Asia, and more recently in other parts of the world. As one put it, it represents a surge in the international visibility of Korean culture. The term was coined in mid 1999 by Beijing journalists surprised at the fast growing popularity of Korean entertainment and culture in China. The wave has had considerable impact on the South Korean economy, as well as on the political and cultural influence of South Korea. For example, in 2011 based on international activity the Korean wave added approximately USD$3.8 billion dollars of revenue to the South Korean economy.
You could mention how KPOP is very popular in other countries like Japan. You could also show your class a sample of the music, if you’re able to. You should also mention that KPOP is “morally clean” because it doesn’t have any sexual or drug-related content in the music. Most of the songs are sung about puppy-love and breaking-up, which is quite innocent compared to American music nowadays. I think that you already have enough information to use, but I hope that I helped!
