Just like in any other fandom, getting into KPop requires a bit of education. The KPop world makes use of English terms you may not read anywhere else, some of which are in this list.
As of this posting, there are seven songs that achieved perfect all-kill status in 2013, with "The Red Shoes" by IU being the latest.
2. FAN SERVICE
Performing in drag and wearing animal costumes are other examples of fan service.
Look at it as how college basketball fans chant during offense and defense.
4. GUERILLA CONCERT
Established artists also perform in guerilla concerts, albeit a bit more elaborate. Here's PSY performing on the streets of Seoul's Hongdae District in 2010.
5. HOT ISSUE
One of the many hot issues that are burning the KPop scene is CL of 2NE1 appearing naked in their music video for "Missing You".
The road to becoming an idol is never easy, as only one of 10,000 trainees is likely to debut, and that is even half the battle.
7. LOVE CALL
Word on the street is that Taeyang of BIGBANG has received love calls from American record companies for a possible solo career in the US.
Cute selcas, such as this one taken by actress Clara (center, with Lizzy and Nana of After School), often land on Korean news sites.
9. UNCLE FAN
Crayon Pop is not only popular because of its out-of-the-box concepts, but also because of its dedicated uncle fan base.
10. V-LINE/ S-LINE
Meanwhile, the S-line is associated with a woman's hourglass shape.
