Diya Jain, Delhi: The world offers an endless amount of fresh and breathtaking art in the form of movies, films, songs, paintings, and much more. But we often find ourselves cocooned in our world, to an extent that the majority of cultures remain alien to the average individual. Even in the case of diverse musical cultures, as a fan of K-pop, I’m often asked the reason to choose and appreciate the music I listen to. After all, it is in Korean, they say. But the beautiful thing about music that most fail to notice is that one does not need to understand the language in order to enjoy it.
Susmita Sanyal, Kolkata, West Bengal: K-pop idols are known for their smooth moves and visuals on stage, but fans, who truly admire these idols, know that there’s a lot more than meets the eye. In reality, these K-idols are much more than their stage personas. It is their real-life image that is equally appreciable and needs discussion. To be honest, every passionate fan must have fallen in love with her/his idol once due to their kindness and good nature.
