(Translation below the video)
“-KPOP is getting famous in coutries like USA and Brazil. Drunken Tiger and T, Eastern hiphop stars, sent a special message to the fans and for “Leitura Dinamica”.
The country with the most online games? If you thought about USA or Japan, You are wrong!
South Korea has almost one and half million in habitants, the thirteenth PIB in the world, already hosted the world cup, has the fastest internet of the world, and has the largest number of online games of the latest century.
Just needed to dominate the pop music. Yeah, it needed.
KPOP is fact! At least four different styles take over the eastern charts since 90’s.
The huge success in countries like Japan, Singapore and even China, catch the world’s attention, which still have some barriers with Korean language.
Until the spread via internet, which made possible the kpop’s success in other places.
Each group that debuted ended up in video sites. Concerts are broadcasted via stream, awards are accumulated, and the world begins to notice South Korea. Including us, Brazilians.
The impact of Kpop in Brazil, we gonna show you later, dont miss it!
And from the distant South Korea.. For now, a little tease.
Stay tunned, i’ll be right back.
South Korea is here!
KPOP took advantage of the Brazilian charts, invades the minds of the youth and creates new idols.
All of this without a single show in Brazilian territory.
The reason for the pop explosion in Brazil are many.
The fascination for the Eastern musicality, the unusual lyrics and rhymes, at leats for those that understand Korean.
Pronunciation is almost a tongue-twister!
TVXQ for us, and Don Bang Shin Ki for the East.
Highlight also to the musical style: Wonder Girls made a pop song inspired on a retro sound from the 60’s.
And explode out there due to this approach. The different musical styles please us Westerners.
BoA recorded this one with Akon.
But does a different sound in Hurricane Venus.
2NE1 already has an album produced by Will.I.Am from Black Eyed Peas.
The recorded will only come out in April, but it’s already on the billboard list of potencial successes.
And it’s not only of girlbands that KPOP lives here.
Big Bang is the boyband of the moment, and one of the most awarded in Asia.
It derived names like SeungRi and G-Dragon.
Now to end the subject we bring you So Nyuh Shi Dae.
The dancing pop that hypnotized the charts, Hoot has many versions but this here “dance” is already on the set of many famous DJs, including Brazilians.
And to the sound of So Nyuh Shi Dae is that today’s Leitura Dinamica says goodbye. You know that you can review this and other information on our site
