[Press Release] Stars of K-Pop: Your Guide to the Hottest Acts in K-Pop Today

2014/03/31 | 461 views | Permalink | Source

Watermark Publishing has released boy- and girl-group editions of Stars of K-Pop, the authorized guide to the biggest stars in the K-Pop genre. K-Pop (Korean pop music or hallyu) is one of the hottest trends in music and online media today. How hot is it? Top K-pop group Girls' Generation took home the Video of the Year Award at YouTube's inaugural Music Awards ceremony. The ladies of 2NE1 made an appearance in the current season of the hit ABC-TV show The Bachelor as collaborators on a dance lesson date. Leading social and online media site Mashable has given multiple accolades to K-Pop artists and sites, including "Must Follow Personality" (Super Junior), "Must Follow Brand" (AllKPop) and "Viral Video of the Year" ("Mr. Simple" by Super Junior). And of course, there's the international sensation Psy, whose "Gangnam Style" video made him the first artist to ever amass more than one billion YouTube views, and whose follow-up release, "Gentleman", racked up over 18 million views in its first day online.

Compiled by Asia's STARNEWS Media, a top source for K-Pop news, Stars of K-Pop is now offered for the first time in English in two softcover volumes: one covering female artists and one devoted to male artists. Each volume features 15 of today's top acts and includes artists' vital statistics, interview transcripts and hundreds of full-color photographs. Both books are a must-have collector's item for fans and a crash-course for newcomers to the K-Pop sensation. Groups profiled in the Girls Edition are Girls' Generation, 2NE1, Kara, f(x), Secret, Sistar, 4minute, T-ara, miss A, Brown Eyed Girls, AFTERSCHOOL, Girl's Day, A Pink, RAINBOW and Crayon Pop. The Boys Edition features Psy, TVXQ, BIGBANG, Super Junior, BEAST, SHINee, INFINITE, 2PM, 2AM, CNBLUE, ZE:A - Children of Empire, FT Island, MBLAQ, EXO and Supernova.
