Meet Latin America's Teenage Korean Pop Fanatics

Meet Latin America's Teenage Korean Pop Fanatics | Culture in Geography | Scoop.it
"K-Pop really changed my life," says Samantha Alejandra, 18. "I'm addicted to it."

Megan Salveggio's insight:

I personally agree with the majority of this. Although "Gangnam Style" by PSY did create an effect in culture in the US, and other contries rather than Korea, it is a 'one hit wonder'. Where as those other bands (BigBang, SHINee, EXo, AlphaBAT, and BAP to name a few; along with Super Junior, mentioned) have constant feed. Why do I have this opinion? I myself am a K-pop fan. This style of music is vibrant and full of life, along with the fact that the lyrics have nothing to do with anything of that in America. It's great and all, the popular music in the US, but I don't like hearing a third grader singing "Thrift Shop", "Blurred Lines" or "Wrecking Ball"; it shows that the upcoming generation in going downhill.

So what if you can't fully understand the words in a K-pop song? Look up the lyrics once, and you'd see right away why it's better. Another factor for K-pop, little to no swearing. It's absoulty a different culture, and I like it more. You'd be suprised how many people listen to K-pop, C-pop, J-pop, or T-pop (Chinese, Japenese, Thai).

And to be honest, I screamed when I saw this article. I never see stuff like this, and I got excited to have proof that others are being effected by the K-pop culture. I'm listening to G-Dragon while I'm writing this, and as Samantha put it "I'm addicted to it".

I'm not your typical movie crier. Unlike most of my friends, I don't tend to cry at big romantic gestures or when anyone in a Nicholas Sparks movie dies. But there is one thing that will always get me, as well as most of the other ...

Megan Salveggio's insight:

Little things like this restore my faith in the human race; it just makes me smile. If more people tried to help homeless by giving them even a bit of money, or clothes, it's taking a step towards less strife.

It's Thanksgiving So We Asked Brits To Label The United States — We're So Sorry, America

It's Thanksgiving So We Asked Brits To Label The United States — We're So Sorry, America | Culture in Geography | Scoop.it
What do you mean there's no such place as Further South Dakota?!
Megan Salveggio's insight:

Americans probably do get a kick out of this, but give them the same blank map and (depending on the age, etc.) it may remain blank throughout the majority of the region. But then there are some people that can label all 50 states under three minutes.

I'd like to see Americans label Great Britain's provinces; then the tables would be turned. Commonly, people just learn geograhy of the region, continent and country names, not specific locations like states and provinces.
