'Make It Pop' Delivers Delightful Snippets Of Korean And Chinese American Culture To Young Audiences

'Make It Pop' Delivers Delightful Snippets Of Korean And Chinese American Culture To Young Audiences

(Photo : Nickelodeon ) The Nickelodeon musical series Make It Pop premiered this week, with Korean-American vocalist Megan Lee at the helm of its youthful cast. Make It Pop received widespread media attention as one of the first attempts by American television to take on K-pop. The show incorporates the captivating aesthetic of the genre, with Korean pop culture posters prominently displayed on the walls of the female protagonists. However, the songs that are performed by Sun Hi (Megan Lee), Jodi (Louriza Tronco) and Corki (Erika Tham) are not delivered in Korean. To call it a K-pop show is reductive as Make It Pop provides a comedic analysis of pop culture beyond the genre, focusing on the selfie-obsessed, electronic dance music (EDM) trends that pervade the 13-25 age demographic.

The first episode titled Rumors and Roommates, introduces viewers to the central characters and the seemingly impossible setting of Mackendrick Prep. Mackendrick Prep is an international boarding school, which immediately explains the self-centered personalities of its student body.

Sun Hi entertains dreams of international stardom and constantly emerges herself in music. She films a performance video with her reluctant roommates which goes viral. One of the best quotes about internet fame and viral videos comes from Sun Hi. Im web famous, thats better than being real life famous, said Sun Hi.

Corki, who interjects Mandarin into the program as she speaks with her parents, may be one of the most stereotypical characters in Make It Pop but she is also one of the most interesting. She is obsessed with studying and plays the violin.

Jodi is a relatable character, who is willing to sacrifice for her friends. The combination of young actresses who are at the helm of the series demonstrates excellent casting. The series is like a sanitized version of Glee as opposed to Hannah Montana, where there was a central focus on one musically talented character.

Caleb (Dale Whibley), who is one of the main male characters depicted in the show, is an aspiring DJ. His desire to collaborate with Sun Hi and her budding girl group is reminiscent of artists like Diplo or Skrillex, who have formed successful working relationships with K-pop stars like 2NE1s CL.

Make It Pop may not feature a K-pop soundtrack but the series is worth watching. Make It Pop premiered on April 6 and will air twenty episodes during its first season.

Block B Zico Showcases The Worst Aspects Of American Hip-Hop Culture In His Teasers For 'Tough Cookie' [Opinion]

Block B Zico Showcases The Worst Aspects Of American Hip-Hop Culture In His Teasers For 'Tough Cookie' [Opinion]

(Photo : Seven Seasons )

Zico brandishes an automatic weapon, with his hair in cornrows, topped off with a bandana. Guns, ski masks, twerking, and cornrows are all aspects of hip-hop iconography which allow for negative stereotypes. Unfortunately, these are all featured in promos for Tough Cookie, the upcoming solo release from Block Bs Zico.

While the imagery can be ignored, it is disturbing to many international fans who are viewing this promotional campaign as another K-Pop misstep.

Cornrows are not new to K-Pop and were probably best worn by Big Bang"s Taeyang. Weapons and militaristic imagery have been used in Korean pop videos for artists including 2NE1 and B.A.P.

Block B previously incorporated guns and bank robbery in their video for Very Good. However, the incorporation of colorful hairstyles helped to make the video more fanciful than hip-hop. Very Good may approach a slightly harder image than many other K-Pop groups, but it is tempered by its subliminal reference of comic imagery that harkens to the Batman franchise.

Tough Cookie is the latest example of the struggle that Korean entertainment faces when it attempts to appeal to domestic audiences in Korea, while also potentially alienating fans who are abroad. Many fans have turned to K-Pop to avoid the images of violence which are prominently displayed in hip-hop subgenres such as gangster rap.

Ski masks, which are used often for armed robbery, are also featured in the video for (Photo : Seven Seasons )

Ski masks, which are used often for armed robbery, are also featured in the video for "Tough Cookie." Gangster rap may evoke the lowrider 90s rhymes of Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre, but the consequences of the East Coast versus West Coast rap wars were less than pleasant. What began as industry feuds between hip-hop artists led to the untimely death of Tupac Shukar at age 25 in 1996, followed by the Notorious B.I.G whose life was ended at age 24 in 1997. In addition to deaths in the hip-hop community, the glorification of gangster rap often contributes to urban issues such as organized crime and drug abuse.

Beyond the incorporation of violent imagery, the video teaser also features twerking and a girl who appears simulate a lewd act on a banana. In recent years, twerking has been spotlighted by many entertainers ranging from American hip-hop artists to former Disney star, Miley Cyrus. Miley Cyrus continues to be a hotbed conversation following her twerking stage with Robin Thicke for the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.

While Zico may not have intended this reaction, some K-Pop fans have taken offense to the promos for Tough Cookie. In a forum for Black Kpop Fans, commenter Jessie Byrd expressed a popular sentiment unfortunately this is how KOREA sees hip hop... american hip hop... we can"t do nothing but blame ourselves. Hopefully, this will change as artists like Zico and Block B continue to reach fans outside of Korea.

What are you thoughts about Zico"s concept for "Tough Cookie?" Could he have chosen a different way to express a hard, hip-hop image?
