Description

Korean pop (kpop) is a style of music and dance that broadly integrates elements of dance-pop, pop ballad, electronic, rock, metal, hip-hop and R&B. The defining feature of kpop songs is that they almost always have an official dance choreography that they are produced in tandem with, and dance covers will typically be based on these choreographies. Learn the moves of your favourite kpop idols, and to unleash your own inner kpop star!
