For many fans of K-pop and K-drama, it’s more than just watching a computer screen for the latest releases; you’ve taken your love for the music and stories and transformed it into something so much more! By looking up lyrics to your favorite K-pop songs, you may have learned how the Korean language is romanized. You may have also studied Korea’s royal history to find out what happened in real life to your favorite king in that historical K-drama you just marathoned. Or you could have been one of the more lucky fans who just grew up with the language and culture.
