K-pop is a genre of popular music originating in South Korea. While the modern form of K-pop can be traced back to the early 90s, the term itself has been popularized since the 2000s, replacing the term Gayo, which refers to domestic pop music in South Korea. Although it indicates "popular music" within South Korea, the term is used in a narrower sense to describe a modern form of South Korean pop, influenced by styles and genres from around the world, such as experimental, jazz, hip hop, R&B, electronic dance, folk and classical on top of its traditional Korean music roots; the more modern form of the genre emerged with the formation of one of the earliest K-pop groups, Seo Taiji and Boys, in 1992. Their experimentation with different styles and genres of music and integration of foreign musical elements helped reshape and modernize South Korea's contemporary music scene. Modern K-pop "idol" culture began with the boy band H. O. T. in 1996, as K-pop grew into a subculture that amassed enormous fandoms of teenagers and young adults.
After a slump in early K-pop, from 2003 TVXQ and BoA started a new generation of K-pop idols that broke the music genre into the neighboring Japanese market and continue to popularize K-pop internationally today. With the advent of online social networking services and Korean TV shows, the current spread of K-pop and Korean entertainment, known as the Korean Wave, is seen not only in East Asia and Southeast Asia, but in India, Latin America, North Africa, Southern Africa, the Middle East and throughout the Western world, gaining a widespread global audience. Although K-pop refers to South Korean popular music, some consider it to be an all-encompassing genre exhibiting a wide spectrum of musical and visual elements; the French Institut national de l'audiovisuel defines K-pop as a "fusion of synthesized music, sharp dance routines and fashionable, colorful outfits". Songs consist of one or a mixture of pop, hip hop, R&B and electronic music genres. Management agencies in South Korea offer binding contracts to potential artists, sometimes at a young age.
Trainees live together in a regulated environment and spend many hours a day learning music, foreign languages and other skills in preparation for their debut. This "robotic" system of training is criticized by Western media outlets. In 2012, The Wall Street Journal reported that the cost of training one Korean idol under SM Entertainment averaged US$3 million. K-pop is a cultural product that features “values and meanings that go beyond their commercial value.” It is characterized by a mixture of modern Western sounds and African-American influences with a Korean aspect of performance. It has been remarked. For some, the transnational values of K-pop are responsible for its success. A commentator at the University of California has said that "contemporary Korean pop culture is built on transnational flows taking place across and outside national and institutional boundaries." Some examples of the transnational values inherent in K-pop that may appeal to those from different ethnic and religious backgrounds include a dedication to high-quality output and presentation of idols, as well as their work ethic and polite social demeanour, made possible by the training period.
Modern K-pop is marked by its use of English phrases. Jin Dal Yong of Popular Music and Society wrote that the usage may be influenced by "Korean-Americans and/or Koreans who studied in the U. S. take full advantage of their English fluency and cultural resources that are not found among those who were raised and educated in Korea." Korean pop music from singers or groups who are Korean-American such as Fly to the Sky, g.o.d, Yoo Seung-jun, Drunken Tiger has both American style and English lyrics. These Korean-American singers' music has a different style from common Korean music, which attracts the interest of young people. Foreign songwriters and producers are employed to work on songs for K-pop idols, such as will.i.am and Sean Garrett. Foreign musicians, including rappers such as Akon, Kanye West and Snoop Dogg, have featured on K-pop songs; the entertainment companies help to expand K-pop to other parts of the world through a number of different methods. Singers need to use English since the companies want to occupy markets in the other parts of Asia, which enables them to open the Western market in the end.
Most of the K-pop singers learn English because it is a common language in the world of music, but some singers learn other foreign languages such as Japanese to approach the Japanese market. Increasing numbers of K-pop bands use English names rather than Korean ones; this allows artists to be marketed to a wider audience around the world. However, the use of English has not guaranteed the popularity of K-pop in the North American market. For some commentators, the reason for this is because the genre can be seen as a distilled version of Western music, making it difficult for K-pop to find acceptance in these markets. Furthermore, Western audiences tend to place emphasis on authenticity and individual expression in music, which the idol system can be seen as suppressing. According to Elaine W. Chun's research though hybridity appears more and more in K-pop, sometimes may make fans admire K-pop stars more because it is fresh
