K-POP cannot be stopped!

Since its large-scale assault on the world stage a decade ago, K-POP has defied a cynical musical industry and defined a generation of musical talent, creating a soundtrack to the 21st century in the process. Today, more than 80 million K-POP albums are sold each year, with tens of billions of streams and MVs to boot, uniting the millions of K-POP fandoms together into one demilitarized, and friendly, army.

Much like K-POP blends together the genres of electronic, pop, hip-hop, rock, and R&B, The Little Guide to K-POP fuses together all the facts, stats, quotes, quips, wisdom and trivia you'll need to keep up to speed with this lightning bolt of an evolving genre.

From BTS to BlackPink, Seventeen to EXO, Red Velvet to SuperM, and everyone else inbetween, The Little Guide to K-POP celebrates ten years of musical revolution, throwing a bite-size spotlight on the viral dance moves, songs, groups, agencies, MVs and the heart-throbbing idols at the center of this global cultural phenomenon.
