Kpop is the abbreviation of Korean Pop (케이팝). It began with the boy band H.O.T. in 1996 and then TVXQ and BoA started a new generation of K-pop idols that broke the music genre into the neighboring Japanese market and continue to popularize K-pop internationally today through social media.

Kpop includes different kinds of groups.

We have the cute group like Apink or Astro.
