Spring and Summer are known for being concert seasons. As school comes to close many people look forward to the concert season because it is time to hang out with friends while listening to your favorite artists. But what once was concert season is now quarantine season. Due to the increasing rates of deaths and infections in the United States, businesses are forced to close, events with large gatherings are canceled and families are asked to stay quarantined for not only weeks but months. This means concerts are postponed. Some of these postponed concerts include Billie Ellish, Cardi B, Coachella, Dua Lipa, Harry Styles, Jonas Brothers, Justin Bieber, Khalid, Lady Gaga and many more.
Korean Pop was first noticed in the U.S. in 2012 when Psy’s “Gangnam Style” became the first video on YouTube to have a billion streams. When it was released it was something new and unfamiliar to us. Over the past decade, Korean Pop has become more well-known with many groups touring in America. After almost three years since their debut, BlackPink will finally step foot on American soil for the first time.
