I've never liked K-Pop (Korean Pop) for my WHOLE life until the year 2010 when I saw how much it has evolved.
Seriously. Kpop will get you hooked. ABSOLUTELY eye-popping, colorful, well-produced music videos. Amazingly good-looking singers and girl groups/boy groups with great personalities and quirks whom you'll come to adore. RIDICULOUSLY catchy hooks and ear worms that will stick in your mind for days on end.
If you're currently bored of music, and looking for something new and interesting, you'll love Kpop. It has a LOT of fans worldwide. South Americans leaving spanish comments in Kpop videos, French people oogling over the newest music video, etc. Sure it's nothing very DEEP and "artistic" but it's mass-manufactured fun music at its best.
Kpop is making its way into the American music scene soon as well, with Will.I.am from the Black Eyed Peas producing an album for the absolutely "Americanized" girl group: 2NE1.
www.allkpop.com is the ABSOLUTE best source for Kpop news if you get interested, and if you do, then you'll check up on it daily like many Kpop fans.
The most popular Kpop artists are mostly girl groups/guy groups. The QUEEN of Kpop is SNSD, also called Girl's Generation. Groups like Kara, T-ARA, 4minute, After School, 2NE1, Wonder Girls, Miss A, Rainbow, Brown Eyed Girls, f(x), and Secret are very well known as well. The most popular guy groups are: BIGBANG, 2PM, B2ST, INFINITE, MBLAQ, and Super Junior.
Here's a list of the ABSOLUTE most best representation of what Kpop is like:
