An argument over K-pop breaks out on a bathroom stall at Fresno State. (Samantha Domingo/The Collegian)

Letter: K-pop music gains popularity in America

There I am, sitting down, doing my business in the Kremen Education Building restroom.

As I sat on the toilet, I looked at the door in front of me and to my surprise, I found a group chat composed of K-pop fans.

Graffiti literally plastered all over the door had to do with K-pop, with different handwritings, opinions and an argument even broke out.

To my humor, I wonder if the people who contributed to the vandalization were also casually sitting on the toilet and decided to bring out a sharpie to add their input on the door.

I found it quite hilarious and came to the realization that K-pop is no longer limited to just Korea, but worldwide.

It’s interesting that although most do not understand the Korean language, they still listen to it.

Why? Is it the beat, melody, voice?

I’ve questioned this so many times and though I am still searching for an answer, I like to believe that people listen to the songs because music is a universal language.

You don’t have to understand the language to feel the type of emotions that are being expressed.

K-pop, over the year, has been spreading worldwide due to the uniqueness and catchy beat, dance and did I say beauty?

They really know how to catch people’s attention from the production, composition, over-the-top outfits, dances and basically everything in the culture.

Hence the reason for why K-pop has become so well-known all over the world, and I’m bold enough to say that it’s dominating the world quickly.
