    Kpop is part of the korean cuture. I feel like kpop is the place where asians can be pretty proud of,  and this is more like american pop or style, their mvs,sets etc. except their just singing in korean. the song is not bad tho same with EXP.

    i don't think Kpop is a specific type of anything that everyone is trying to say. I think Kpop is just music that is manufactured in and released in Korea. They should of just said they are artist trying to get popular in Korea, which is why they sang in Korean. Even CL said Kpop is not just a genre it's just Korean music. The music she makes in America isn't Kpop. That's just my opinion on it. Trying to define Kpop is kind of weird too since other countries music isn't defined. American music is just music made in America.

    I honestly think that people forget that this is not K-pop. It's more so K-hip-hop and R&B, and the way they came about were doing dance and song covers (on Youtube). They entered into contests and performed in festivals, some very big ones in Korea and the people loved them. Also as Jenna stated that they do not want appropriate the Korean culture nor even think about doing so, and there is a responsibility to be held by the K-pop industry itself for appropriating the stereotypes of African-American culture (incorrectly many times over). Also, the thing that is bugging me is that they have been doing this since about 2012 or 2013 and people are deciding to get angry over an article that Allkpop put up right after this EXP fiasco ... A little suspect... (But that's none of my business).

    I think what makes kpop kpop is that their target audience is koreans, and asians. So not necessarily the language. I wouldn't consider this kpop because I personally don't think it would appeal to asia very much. It's (generally) more fun to see idols that look like you, and this is the case everywhere.

    I don't consider it Kpop either. I consider it music, and good music at that. Whether or not it appeals to someone is another case entirely. For those it doesn't appeal to, they have the option to never click play :D

    It is not K-Pop just because it is in Korean. K-Pop has clearly defined, musical and aesthetical components, that this lacks. It has nothing to do with the singer. It has all to do with the concept. In K-Pop there is different styles depending on the concept. So a big group will have dances, a solist will hire actors, and so on. There will also most likely be in the video representations of the Korean culture, most commonly its dating and love culture as well as its modesty one. K-Pop has a formula. To be K-Pop you must follow a formula. If you do not follow the formula, regardless of signing in Korean, you are not making K-Pop, you are JUST singing in Korean. All the same as Korean traditional music is sang in Korean and it is still, not K-Pop.

    Colors are rather pertaining to that style of american editing as well as clothes, hair style and makeup selection. The set as well lacks of certain points you will always see in K-Pop, the box, the "fake-village", the cars on the back, and so on. It does also not comply to the usual, cute, sexy, rebelious and variations that K-Pop music videos concepts are based on. I could go on. The lyrics are, as well, too straigh forward when talking about sexual themes. K-Pop, due to Korean modesty mainstream music culture will be muted or will take on the use of metaphors and euphemisms. In summary, if you put the american version on top, I could have never ever guessed it was K-Pop, it lacks of K-Pop's formula. As I said, tho, that does not mean it is not valid or a good song, for that matter.

    Actually, when Koreans do JPop it does sound like Japanese Pop, and it takes on the themes and styles that pertain to the cathegory. You can definitely tell when a Kpop group is doing a JPop song for the Japanese market. Watch SNSD's videos for examples. Provided, of course that they are not just simple Japanese covers of Korean songs, but JPop style songs specifically made for the Japanese market.

    K-pop has been greatly influenced by western culture though. From the music to fashion, visual effects and themes. The combination of all these elements makeup what we are used to seeing in k-pop but a lot of it doesn't even represent Korean culture, as many music videos are not even filmed in Korea. Big groups not always have dances and soloists not always hire actors. You're talking about stereotypes here, so since it's incorrect to assume all Asians are good at math, it's also incorrect to say k-pop has defined musical and aesthetical components. Perhaps this was the case 10 years ago, but as a global phenomenon k-pop is now in constant evolution and idols want to experiment and express themselves with different sounds and visuals. Soloists are not just ballad singers with sad romantic MVs anymore. Zion.T, DEAN, Crush, Jay Park, Jessi and Heize are a good example of it. And idol groups are a lot more than synchronized dancers in colorful boxes since many MVs now days are more artistic and have deep meanings.

    I highly suspect that K-pop is a term popularized outside of Korea. I say K-pop to refer to pop music in the Korean music industry, so I think that K-pop should represent Korea in some way. To me, nothing about this video indicates that this is K-pop except for the language they're singing in, which may imply that they did this while in Korea, which is possible since there are non-Asian people living in Seoul. I doubt they have an agency in Korea to support them financially because no Korean agencies are going to see mainstream potential in them, and thus they're most likely not a K-pop group.

    I think it has little to do with the style or aesthetics because most elements in K-pop are borrowed from overseas, and they tend to give it a little twist from a Korean aspect. Nowadays I start to see even less of those twists, and resemble even more like western music and MVs in K-pop.

    Not sure why I'm catching so much salt here. "Kpop is not simply just singing in Kpop" As I said, I guess you can say the same thing about Jpop. Oh and Koreans doing Jpop does NOT sound like actual Jpop. This is coming from a fluent speaker.

    K-Pop HAS been greatly influenced by western culture, as it is, the mere genre of Pop was not conceived in South Korea. An element does not have to pertain or represent the Korean culture to be a forming part of what a category or sub-genre is regarded as. All the same as the location implies little in a piece’s categorization. “You're talking about stereotypes here” I am not talking about stereotypes, I am defining a category, that as any other will have exceptions (Zion.T, DEAN, Crush, Jay Park, Jessi and Heize, all regarded as somewhat underground in the midst of the K-Pop mainstream scene) exceptions that, as we say, make the rule. The only way to define something is that of taking its most notable characteristics and pointing them out. Rare will be the time, when even exceptions do not fall into one of these categories. “Big groups not always have dances and soloists not always hire actors.” Evidently, but most of the time, and most importantly, in a mainstream fashion, they do. “And idol groups are a lot more than synchronized dancers in colorful boxes since many MVs now days are more artistic and have deep meanings.” I don’t think you will ever find someone that denies that, I certainly do not, however, for what a definition is, and that is not interpretation and subjectivity, these are points to focus on, when defining something.
