Abstract:The Hallyu or "Korean Wave" may be a familiar term, but with more interest in K-Pop due to international spotlights such as the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics or BTS’ recent success on US music charts, award shows, and radio play, you might be interested in adding K-Pop albums to your music collections. But what if you don’t know where to start?

Learn more about the history of K-Pop, its many genres, common traits, popular groups, special considerations and unique elements to be aware of for collection development and processing these albums for your library! Q&A to follow. Leave with a better awareness of K-Pop and ideas for promoting this catchy music –there’s so much more than "Gangnam Style!"

Recommended for public librarians and those interested in adding Korean music albums to their collections.
