and i'm talking like more than 40% or something not .2% lmao
, you speak korean, have been to korea, you have your grandmother's binyeos, and love kr music, etc...
(BASICALLY IF YOU'RE NOT A KOREABOO AND ACTUALLY SOMEONE CULTURALLY INVOLVED)
(personally, i didn't stay long enough to really immerse)- but i wonder if in korea, being a k-pop fan...does that make you a "pop" fan or specifically a "k-pop" fan?
what i'm saying is, if you have an understanding of it, that people wouldn't think of it as korean pop, because it's their native language! and if you're someone who is bilingual it's all just "pop" right? there's no difference for you? the classifications (k, j, c) it helps in other countries/talking to foreigners but other than that, why use it?
i know american songs chart in korea but you don't hear the term "a-pop" lol
i've heard the usage of the term "pop" in korea to describe some k-pop artists, so i guess it goes both ways?
(i think it is because the implied k- part is redundant lol)
Korean girl somewhere in a k-drama in Korea: ah, I love k-pop...
GIRL IT'S REGULAR POP FOR YOU WHY DO YOU NEED TO CLASSIFY YOUR POP YOU'RE IN YOUR OWN COUNTRY
this makes no sense and went off the rails but
watch someone get triggered by this lmao even idk what the fuck i'm talking about
