Korean pop music, or K-pop, is an umbrella term for music originating from South Korea, usually similar in genre to pop in the United States. Usually known outside the country for the numerous {{Idol Singer}}s and idol {{Boy Band}}s and {{Girl Group}}s in the industry. K-pop and other Korean based entertainment such as {{Korean Drama}}s first became very popular throughout Asia in the 2000s, in a phenomenon which has been nicknamed the "Hallyu Wave".
