Every year, I get more and more excited about the future of kpop in conjunction with innovative technology. SM and other companies are doing such a great job making kpop new and refreshing all the time, with things like AR (augmented reality) technology in online concerts, new apps, creating dance trends on Tik Tok, and new camera techniques for music videos. I am surprised every year, and it's honestly so cool!
