I direct you to Mike’s post at Scribblings of the Metropolitician.

Here’s what I’ll say about K-pop. As with most pop music, I hate it—a lot of it is manufactured bubble-gum crap. On the plus side, though, unlike with American pop music, I’ve never dispaired for the future of civilization after listening to a K-pop song. In that regard, I wish it luck in the States, “codes” or no “codes.”

I’m going to listen to some Kim Kwang-seok now…
