“Gangnam Style” introduced the world to K-pop in a way that is still being felt to this day. While K-pop can be defined in a broad sense as popular South Korean music, the rise of Psy introduced the globe to the electronic pop anthems more specifically associated with the genre.
On YouTube, South Korean pop stars are blowing up and receiving hundreds of millions of views to the point that Time Magazine crowned K-pop as “South Korea’s Greatest Export.”
