Korean popular culture has expanded its reach to an international audience at an astounding pace in the past several years. Most notably, Korean pop music (commonly referred to as K-pop) has engaged and entertained many individuals and has crossed language barriers, becoming a beloved genre of music around the globe. This study will compile research to present insight into what has made K-pop so successful in the past several years from a sociological standpoint and how this has also spurred interest in Korean culture and language. A history of the cultural and social effects of K-pop on a transnational scale will be tracked from the 2000s to present.
