The Korean pop music, commonly referred to as K-pop (it being an abbreviation of the term Korean pop), has actually become a greater part of the Korean pop. The K-pop's popularity has been notably attributed to individualism and also talent. It is also worth noting that the music has been having a wide diversity through the collaboration with different musicians. K-pop has been however termed as being widely manufactured. In the recent years, the Korean entertainment companies are now heavily depending on the YouTube as a key medium for the purpose of spreading of the Korean culture.

K-pop music has actually been, and is increasingly music for charlatans. There always been a place for those who are unable to neither play instrument nor sing. This has been ironically 'dressed up' or otherwise inflated with something that is remarkable and excellent. After making a close scrutiny as pertains to the type of music the current K-pop plays, it is apparent that a lot has been neglected and the original test for the music has actually been lost. This may however been highly influenced by the current generation and the fact that many youths are not very keen on the kind of message passed by this particular music but the physically attraction and the kind of costumes by the dancers.

Pop and rock music has been, and is increasingly, music for charlatans. There has always been a place for those who can neither sing nor play instruments and this has been "dressed up" or inflated as something remarkable and excellent. Apparently it is certain that the term discipline never exists in the rock musician's existing vocabulary. It requires a couple of years of distinguished in order to be conversant with how to write the kind of music that is composed by Beethoven or even Stravinsky. Not in Korea but most of the pop musicians tend to let amplification to replace the well…...

...No matter how you look at it, we have all been influenced by something. This something could be anything a person, place, or even a fictional character. In my case it was a fictional character. I loved batman when I was younger, I wanted to do what he did, talk like he did, eat what he ate, its a little weird but that is how I was influenced. A bigger influence would be the influence Martin Luther King Jr. had on Barack Obama. President Obama would say how large of an influence MLK had on him. Influence can be a small impact or a huge impact in someone’s life. We ourselves also make a huge impact on family, friends, and peers. Anyone that has a younger sibling has heard his or her parents say “Set a good example.” This is an example of influence we have on family members. We influence everyone around us. A person may think its cool or normal what you do so they follow what you do. Everyone is a role model in a way. We are influenced and we also influence and family is a huge part of that. Think about the group of friends that you hang out with. Now think of why you all are friends. There has to be a common denominator amongst yourselves to show why you all are friends. It could be you all listen to the same music, play the same sport, or act the same way. This is an influence. Everyone influences each other. We are all influential. This is why people say to surround yourself with good people because those people influence and impact your life. Usually...

Kpop Biggest Export of Korea

Korean popular music or Kpop refers to a musical genre fromSouth Korea, which includes a wide variety of musical and visual elements According to CNN Towards the turn of the 21st century, the K-pop genre began reaching out to other regions of the world as part of the global Korean wave. Music production, music video making and artist promotions define the 3 specific sections vital to the Korean popular music industry. Music production is vital to the production of KPOP music . Music producers who have collaborated with various K-Pop idols include many recording artists from the American music community, such as Akon, Kanye West,  will.i.am., Snoop Dogg and Teddy Riley. Andrew Hampp of Billboard magazine states that "The American hip-hop community's recent interest in K-pop has helped open a lot of doors for other artists and managers stateside." Another factor in Music production is the Singer or the artist itself. Entertainment companies in Korea have weekly auditions to find the best singers and performers all over the peninsula. Those who lucky enough to be discover signed long term contracts and spend years in a trainee program.

...The world of Kpop In a world where music dominates and influences everything we do, there is a new type of music that is quickly progressing in popularity, not only nationally but globally as well. Kpop is Korean pop music, although it is not only pop music, it is also trot, hip hop and R&B and Rap. It is a competitive field that requires hard work and determination. Kpop is not only music though; it is a guide that can help give a person more insight about the world around them. It is a hard thing to be an idol in Korea, there are so many values and difficulties they must overcome in order to achieve recognition and fame. If someone were to want to be an idol in South Korea then their best bet would be to go to “The Big Three”. YG Entertainment, JYP Entertainment, and SM Entertainment, These three companies are named “The Big Three” because they are three of the most highly distinguished and accomplished companies in all of South Korea. “The Big Three” have led many idols to fame in not only South Korea but globally as well. In comparison to Canada or the US you could call South Korean’s harsh with the way they train upcoming artists, but they have higher standards. The training process consists of around three year’s minimum of being a trainee and there are many hardships that must be overcome through that process. The trainee years are what determine whether or not a person can make it in the competitive field of being a Korean pop idol. Have you ever looked around...

...CONNECT THEN LEAD In puzzling over whether it's better to be feared or loved as a leader, Machiavelli famously said that, because it's not impossible to do both, leaders should opt for fear. Research from Harvard Business School's Amy Cuddy and consultants Matthew Kohut and John Neffinger refute that theory, arguing that leaders would do much better to begin with "love"—that is, to establish trust through warmth and understanding. Most leaders today approach their jobs by emphasizing competence, strength, and credentials. But without first building a foundation of trust, they run the risk of eliciting fear, resentment, or envy. Beginning with warmth allows trust to develop, facilitating both the exchange and the acceptance of ideas—people really hear your message and become open to it. Cultivating warmth and trust also boosts the quantity and quality of novel ideas that are produced. The best way to gain influence is to combine warmth and strength—as difficult as Machiavelli says that may be to do. In this article, the authors look at research from behavioural economics, social psychology, and other disciplines and offer practical tactics for leaders hoping to project a healthy amount of both qualities. Machiavelli says that when we judge others especially our leaders we look at two characteristics: how lovable they are? and how fearsome they are? These traits are so important because they are said to answer two critical questions “What are this person’s intentions toward...

Hello Kpop

...K-pop swing Although Korean dramas remain popular among Malaysian fans, K-pop has garnered an equal, if not bigger, number of followers over the last few years. In 2006, TVXQ became the first Korean band to perform in Malaysia, opening the gates for other K-pop stars such as Rain, Super Junior, Wonder Girls and Girls' Generation to showcase their music here. Nini Yusof, country manager (advertising sales Malaysia) with Universal Networks International (which runs the E! channel, among others) feels this growing interest is reflected in the increasing number of K-pop acts that have performed here. “Now, you can see at least one K-pop act performing here every three months.” DiGi, which has been hosting various K-pop “parties” with stars like 4Minute, Beast, G.NA and recently Jay Park, is also a proponent of K-pop here. “K-pop is a music genre that is very close to the hearts of our customers, especially among the youths,” DiGi's head of marketing services Sulin Lau had said at a press conference promoting K-pop star Jay Park. In fact, a KTO survey conducted in May last year showed that K-pop has indeed overtaken K-drama as the main purveyor of Hallyu in Malaysia and elsewhere. The survey revealed that, driven mainly by the Internet and social media network, more than 53.3% of 12,085 fans from 102 countries chose K-pop as the Hallyu aspect that interested them most. The K-pop influence online was proven when YouTube invited K-pop stars TVXQ and Kara to...

...When you think of the term “K-pop” what comes to mind? You may think of a can of pop or maybe even a cereal brand, but think again and reconsider it in another perspective. Try thinking in terms in of culture and a different, unique genre of music. Take the time again to think of the term again in a different perspective, would you get the concept? If not, to ease the thought process, Korean Pop, or more commonly known as “K-pop”, doesn’t simply focus on the music itself but has become an influence and musical movement that has swept South Korea and other regions of the world since the early 1990’s and continues to dominate to current day. K-pop consists of dance, electronic, electropop, hip hop, and R&B music originating from Korea. Korean pop, or “K-pop”, has become a popular genre of music because it has become one of Korea’s largest exports, the unique structure of how entertainment companies produce they’re music including their training system, and not only does it influence music itself, but also fashion, culture, and television dramas. In 1992, dance and rap became very popular due to a group called Seo Tae-ji & Boys, which is believed to be the beginning of what we see as modern day K-pop. As the 2000s came about, social media and the Internet began to play a major role in K-pop since it became more accessible and began the driving shift on the exposure and popularity of the genre. Known as the “Korean wave” or more commonly known among Koreans, “The Hallyu Wave...

... uses, resulting in tracts of native coastal sage scrub and chaparral wildlife habitats. Harmony living with wild habitat neighbors could help tone-down the urban influence on those wildlife animals that live in your adjacent natural areas. With urban development increasing and consequently diminishing their native habitats, wildlife species are losing places to hunt for food, roam, and peacefully exist. Having a healthy rich wildlife population is necessary for a healthy ecosystem, which in turn creates a cleaner watershed, space and air among many other benefits. Isolating and condensing wild life species, especially medium and larger sized animals could alter behavior of wildlife and have many adverse effects of isolation thru fragmentation on species ecological process negatively (Crooks 2002, Hunter 2006).

What does social psychology have in common with folk wisdom and philosophy? How does social psychology differ from both folk wisdom and philosophy? Social psychology, folk wisdom and philosophy all deal with people’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors; they stay influenced by what other people think. Social psychology differs from both folk wisdom and philosophy in a multiplicity of ways. Social psychology is an experimentation-based science, which tests guesses, assumptions, and ideas about human social behavior. Folk wisdom is common sense or the opinions and insights of philosophers, novelists, and otherwise in the ways of us human beings. Whereas philosophy is the insight about human nature by philosophers or intellectuals. 2.

...The focus of this book is exploring the seven different weapons of influence, or motives to convince or persuade people. But before it gets into the actual weapons, it introduces a concept called “Click Whirr,” which is an automated fixed-action pattern that causes animals and even humans to have an automatic reaction to certain behaviors without thinking about it. In humans, this automatic response can be beneficial when trying to save time and or the energy it would take to make the decision. However, it can be detrimental in certain cases and cause one to make mistakes especially when one makes the decision based on just a small part of the information, without taking it all in. The first weapon of influence discussed in the book is the weapon of reciprocation. Essentially the concept that it is normal in human culture for one to try and repay another after being provided with kind acts, goods or services, even when it is not explicitly needed. Eventually this rule of reciprocation can cause relationships and transactions to carry on for long periods of time because one person always feels they owe another. This chapter covered the fact that the way the reciprocity rule is often used is by giving someone something before asking for a favor. The book gives 3 reasons why this works, the first being that the rule is very powerful and often takes the place of other decision making factors. Second, the rule is used even when the first favor was uninvited. Third, the rule...
