Ok, I decided to open the K-Pop thread coz I think we could share somethin' on this Asian Genre..
for those who don't know what K-POP is... is Korean Pop.. music from South Korea... it is slightly different from Japanese music and they have they're own music industry and differ from J-Pop...

My favorite K-Pop singers are
Lee Hyo-Lee,

sexy singer... wonderful look, hot body and MUSIC-wise.. amazing.. her songs are like a combination of R&B with Hip-Pop.. this is her song TOC TOC TOC which she released last year...
http://youtube.com/watch?v=44EuK430VOo
and I could tell she's like the biggest celebrity out there, se combines music with gossip and the media has a frenzy over her...
and here she is performing LIVE:
http://youtube.com/watch?v=8EazXunu_CE

BoA

She's very successful in Korea as well.. although some of you may know her since she's singin in japanese too... she hasn't realesed a Korean album for a long time.. but it is said she'll come back to her roots this year (probably)... she's broken some records like bein' the first Korean singer to have a no. 1 hit in japan :P

here's her video Milky Way, one of her korean sngles ;)

BoA pretty much rocks all.

However, I think my favorite Korean artist (specially for Korean music) is:

Image

LENA PARK

Her music is always beautiful, she doesn't have any cheap stunts, and she has a lovely voice. Plus she doesn't stick to just R&B, she's done some rock and pop. Thankfully not country :P

Other Korean artists that I like:

Image

CLAZZIQUAI

GENRE: Electronica, Jazz, House

Clazziquai is a Korean fusion band that combines several genres (including electronic music, acid jazz and house). The group's first short unofficial albums were released online in 2001. Since then, their music has been used in various TV shows and movies, and has given them the chance to perform at various events.

The group's unconventional style has proven popular enough to have the group widen their focus to other countries, signing a contract with Japan's Avex Trax in 2005, in addition to gaining a licensed album in Taiwan. They have contributed to works by Japanese artists Fantastic Plastic Machine and m-flo.

I love Uhm Jung Hwa! She's awesome. One of my fave K-pop artists. I love her song "Kiss me" but the whole of her D.I.S.C.O album is pretty good :D
