Globalization and Popular Music in South Korea does move us forward, and by quite a long way, towards a more comprehensive understanding of the remarkable phenomenon of K-Pop today. - Keith Howard, SOAS University of London The most valuable aspect of this book - from the perspective of someone who reads every academic book on Korean pop in English is the detailed discussion of musical song structure for K-pop songs, considering this is the first book to do so. (...) Highly recommended for researchers or libraries with a strong interest in musicology, cultural studies, cultural anthropology, popular culture, Korea studies, or Asian studies. The specific focus on the music structure of K-pop in this book truly makes it unique from its peers - and its practical description of K-pop music, videos, and business aspects makes it eminently quotable. - Raizel Liebler, The Learned Fangirl
