Podcast for Real: Episode 3

America, Meet K-pop!

(We are on iTunes now! Search “Drama for Real”, hit subscribe and leave us a five star review!)


We are all familiar with kdrama, but what is this new craze that’s taking the world by storm? Perhaps you saw them on TV, heard them on the radio or read a couple of articles about them. That’s right, we are talking about BTS, and more specifically the phenomenon of K-pop in the western hemisphere. Who knew that a country so closed off to foreign language music would embrace K-pop so easily? Yet despite the number of fans, there still seems to be a sense of closed-off-ness, turning a blind eye to chart climbing hits.

Intrigued? Listen to our podcast, walk down the memory lane with us, hear us talk about the past and present of K-pop, and what this all means (and what we hope this means) for the future of Asian music in the Western world.

Who started you off on K-pop? Are you surprised by the recent wave? Tell us in the comments below!

Stay Real,

Anna & Estelle
