Fad is an intense and widely shared enthusiasm for something, esp. one that is short-lived; a crazed. The K-pop movement has spread widely (international) in a short span of time intensely fast. Now I understand fans of K-pop might bash me for saying K-pop is a fad, but if you read the definition of fad, you would see that all the evidence relates to K-pop. People share a high enthusiasm for the music and the idols who create it but, this genre is not different from any other genre, especially since some people define K-pop as a culture more than a segment of music in the Korean culture. Korean Pop music-also known as, Pop music (mainstream cultural genre.) Let me make this this clear-ALL culture have pop as a GENRE. Pop can intertwine or collaborate as they say in the music world with other genres, such as, classical, folk, R&B,Hip-Hop, which seems to be the main genre that Korean pop idols collaborate or incorporate in their music, as well as ballads. But remember that POP is a separate genre, that should not be defined as any other genre unless you are defining it as a POP Culture, which POP music is not, but offend get mixed up with. So tell me why people think it's okay to say group who make hip-hop music or rock bands or even movie stars are apart of this K-pop Movement? Is it just a common mistake that doesn't get much thought-maybe. I get the Hullyu Movement is a Korean cultural spread, but Korea is not K-pop, or is it? Korean idols do seem to be in every part of the Korean cultural. Posters everywhere, clothing brand "lines" Fashion slash every type of Magazine, variety "a varieties of shows," they are MC's, they are commercials of all kind even Ramen noodles, sneakers and liquor (Soju), actors and actresses, models, they are everywhere and involved in EVERYTHING. Since Korean pop seems to be the dominate genre in Korea, I will define it as the Korea culture-my view, my opinion-period. Let me show you a couple of examples-
