It was born in the early 90s as an eclectic mix of musical styles, mainly influenced by the West, and is now recognized as a cultural phenomenon that sweeps the world with its own light. We are talking about K-pop, South Korea's flagship industry. Also known as one of the most important elements of Hallyu, and the Republic of Korea's most important export product (according to Unesco data), it will soon be celebrated by the millions of fans it has won internationally.
