This genre draws inspiration from a wide range of musical styles around the world and includes everything from rock to folk and hip-hop to electronic dance music. The movement, which began in the mid-1990s grew and has become one of the biggest, if not the biggest musical genre in the country, whose popularity has managed to surpass South Korea's borders and into Japan, the rest of Asia, and even some African countries.
