K-pop is big at the moment, like world-wide big. There are fans all across the globe who will look up content of groups like BTS, Monsta X, Blackpink, Red Velvet and many, many more. However, there’s a whole continent of untapped musical potential. That’s why we figured we’d travel around Asia to share some of our favorite music per country. Because let’s be honest, if you like K-pop you’re probably open to music in languages you don’t understand.
This is the second part of our Music Roadtrip. In our first feature we wrote about East-Asia. For this one we’re featuring artists from South-Asia. Take a look!
