- Radio speaker: Gangnam Style is currently the Hit, but what is all behind this hype around the korean solo artist PSY? Korean Pop, Kpop, had already cought long before Gangnam Style, the attention of people in America and Europe through internet sites, such as Youtube. Especially in Germany, France and the U.S., korean bands are holding concerts which are already sold out after only 10 minutes. Steffi Goerend
(me 8D)a Kpop fan...
- Me: 8 years ago I started to listen to Japanese music and came across a Korean band which sang in japanese. I was getting curious and reasearched about Kpop and found many other bands. Now I listen to Kpop since 8 years.
- Radio speaker: The special manner of those artists is really different from the usual charts.
- Me: I don't like it that Kpop became famous here through PSY because he's making fun of all the commercialisation of music, what kpop is, and people might think that all the korean bands make music like him, are as stupid as him well I don't like that. Instead of PSY I would recommand people to listen to music from Big Bang, which won in the European Video Music Awards 2011 the Best Worldwide Act, and 2NE1. Those bands make more dance music and Luxembourgish people might like that.
- Radio Speaker: Bands, which sometimes have to 10 members, stand out with their looks and their special style. The music doesn't only appear with catchy songs but also with complex choreographies which lots of fans and even flashmobs all around the world start to imitate.
I also got my shoppingholics order this week. I was so surprised because I got one pair of lenses for free! So happy~ Because the lenses are blue, I don't have blue ones yet, and they even have the prescription I need. I love that shop!
