Koreans are not only famous for their fermented foods and their wonderful cuisine but are also known for their pop culture and fashion. Who can forget the popular ‘Gangnam Style’ song from Psy which took the world by a storm with record number of views?

K-pop also known as Korean Pop, comprises all genres of popular music within South Korea and the term is more often used in a narrower sense to describe a modern form of South Korean pop music covering dance-pop, pop ballad, electronic, rock, metal, hip-hop, and R&B.

Fashion, of course, is an integral part of the Korean culture and has a unique style that has influenced worldwide trends.
