AMERASIA FILM FESTIVAL PRESENTS:
The KPOP! Night Saturday March 10, offers Montreal a taste of the Korean cultural phenomenon that conquered the Internet and is sweeping the globe. Known as ‘Hallyu,’ or the Korean Wave, K-pop is an eclectic mix of pop, dance, hip hop, rock, and electronic music born in the 1990s and growing since. Characterized by flashy outfits, teenage icons, energetic choreography, and a huge hyperactive fan base, K-pop is arguably the most distinct expression of popular Korean youth culture. As a musical genre, K-pop has become mainstream across the Asian continent and has gained an avid following across the world.
