"K-Pop: Popular Music, Cultural Amnesia, and Economic Innovation in
South Korea" seeks at once to describe and explain the emergence of
export-oriented South Korean popular music and to make sense of
larger South Korean economic and cultural transformations. John Lie
provides not only a history of South Korean popular music the
premodern background, Japanese colonial influence, post-Liberation
American impact, and recent globalization but also a description of
K-pop as a system of economic innovation and cultural production.
In doing so, "K-Pop" delves into the broader background of South
Korea that gave rise to K-pop in this wonderfully informed history
and analysis of a pop culture phenomenon sweeping the globe."
