While the modern version of the genre emerged with the formation of one of the first K-pop groups, the Seo Taiji and Boys a boy band, in 1992.

The word "K-рор" beсаme рорulаr in the 2000's. Рreviоusly, South Korean рор music was саlled gаyо. Аlthоugh "K-рор" is а соmmоn term fоr рорulаr musiс in Sоuth Kоreа, it is оften used in а smаll sense in the genre desсribed here. In 2018, K-рор exрerienсed signifiсаnt grоwth аnd beсаme а 'роwer рlаyer,' mаrking а 17.9% inсreаse in revenue grоwth.

And the K-pop industry has reached new heights with the success of BTS, because of which it also has made a significant growth in the tourism industry where BTS alone brings 8, 00,000 tourists to South Korea per year.

While it can be seen that boy groups in Korea are extremely popular, but it wouldn’t be wrong to say that even girl groups have created a name for them as well. But being a female K-Pop star is not easy because female K-pop stars it is a fight between the strong, sexy and independent women (a product of westernized male gaze) to that of being submissive, cute, lovable and innocent (a product of the patriarchal South Korean society). And body proves as very important role in the lives of the K-pop artists especially females that they often end up saying that they can’t even get hurt without permission as their bodies are the nation’s treasure and that is why have to cherish it always at all costs.

Another aspect that comes along with idea of K-Pop and bands is disbandment of these girl and boy groups after a certain period of time, and when this happens it makes all the fans very emotional and right now the fans of the girl group Lovelyz are going through the same.

It was just a few days ago that the rumours started spreading regarding the disbandment of the girl group Lovelyz and soon enough Woollim Entertainment their agency issued an official statement confirming the disbandment and providing additional information to fans.
