K-Pop: Popular Music, Cultural Amnesia, and Economic Innovation in South Korea
John Lie (Author)
DescriptionK-Pop: Popular Music, Cultural Amnesia, and Economic Innovation in South Korea seeks at once to describe and explain the emergence of export-oriented South Korean popular music and to make sense of larger South Korean economic and cultural transformations. John Lie provides not only a history of South Korean popular music the premodern background, Japanese colonial influence, post-Liberation American impact, and recent globalization but also a description of K-pop as a system of economic innovation and cultural production. In doing so, he delves into the broader background of South Korea in this wonderfully informed history and analysis of a pop culture phenomenon sweeping the globe.
