The first time I heard K-pop I thought:
Sure, it’s mass produced, focused-tested, creatively bankrupt pap that reinforces negative conceptions of gender, ethnicity, and self-esteem, but that’s no different than American pop music, right? And I do love me some Nicki Minaj.
Yeah. And then after a few months I began to realize that every damn song/artist/group sounds EXACTLY THE SAME. And when I hear K-pop now? Well…
Let’s just hope they don’t start playing K-pop on public transportation. I’d be liable to Hulk out on some poor, unsuspecting commuter.
