Korean pop or K-pop culture has truly become a global phenomenon. With BTS being the first ever Korean pop act to receive a Grammy nomination (and speaking at both the UN and White House) and Parasite being the first Korean language movie to win an Academy award, this global K-pop wave looks unstoppable and continues to grow in popularity.
