K-pop: Changing Perceptions

When I first got into K-pop many actions were incredibly strange and foreign to me. Sometimes I couldn’t understand why they did the things they did and that was understandable considering the cultural difference. As I continue to immerse myself into the world that brings me K-pop, I begin to understand the thinking a little more. Of course it’s not possible for me to gain the absolute understanding that I would if I lived in Korea, but as a person who has been interested in the genre for the past few years it began to skew my thinking. By skew I don’t mean negatively, just differently.

One thing that has changed is the way I view people who wear short outfits. Before I almost always connected it to wanting attention or promiscuity, but after seeing it being worn all the time amongst women young and old(er) in Korean society my views have somewhat changed
