Signifiers of Korean Pop and 4Minute’s “Crazy”

On Episode 9 of Pop Unmuted, Scott Interrante and Kurt Trowbridge are joined by New York-based Korean artist and Columbia MFA student Bora Kim and Seoul-based American writer Jakob Dorof to talk about K-pop. We discuss what makes K-pop unique from Western pop and the potential CL of 2ne1 has in crossing over to an American audience. Then we shift our focus to the latest 4Minute single “Crazy.”
