K-pop (an abbreviation of Korean pop music ) is a musical genre, which consist of electronic, hip hop, pop, rock, and R&B music originating in South Korea.
Слайд 3: What is K-pop ?
K-pop can be described as a globalized music; as it is a mixture of Western and European sounds with an Asian flavor of performance.
Слайд 4: Also you should know that…
K-pop artists called idols. Korean pop idol is a popular celebrity that have trained hard for many years after having passed various stages of auditions held by South Korean talent agencies such as SM Entertainment, YG Entertainment, and JYP Entertainment. Bias – it is your favourite member in group. Each idol or idol group has its own fandom.
Слайд 5: Dance
Dance is an integral part of K-pop. Every video or song has a dance that goes with it. However, this choreography is a good way to connect with fans. By having a signature move, like in “Gangnam Style” the audience can participate with the artists. I especially like this part of K-pop because it’s really fun to watch and dance.
Слайд 6: Fashion
K-pop also influences fashion, especially in Asia, where clothes and accessories worn by K-pop stars, as well as their hairstyles and the cosmetic brands they use, are sought after by young listeners. Fashion brands release copies of clothes worn by idols.

Colors play an important role in fandoms, as fans express their unity and loyalty this way, especially in concerts where other artists also perform: fans from a certain fan club create their own sectors with the represented colors, usually with light sticks or official balloons and create a " K-pop Ocean“.
Слайд 19: Reasons why the K-pop fandom is not like the rest
1.The first thing you might notice is that not everyone in the fandom is Korean. In fact, there are fan girls and boys of almost every single race in the world. And no, not everyone understands Korean either. Some people ask why we listen to it even when we don’t understand it and here’s how we answer it: We say, “Because it sounds nice.” And this is why we love subtitles ^-^

3. When a group makes a comeback, fangirls are crazy waiting when a new teaser and music video will be released.
