I just got this in an email from Abby Laurel who is one member of CAB K*POPT NYC; that’s Chelly and Abby Bring K*Pop to NYC.
1) Who are Chelly and Abby? – NYU students heading this globalization project
2) What is K*Pop? – Korean Pop Music
3) What the hell?
We’re students at NYU from all across the States who love Korean pop music. We recognized that it was becoming more popular in the US and wanted to help spread the k*pop love in New York City. So, we perform cover dances in public spaces all around the city and then make videos of it to put on YouTube. We just started this past Fall, and so far we’ve made two videos. (Abby Laurel)
In our cover of I Am the Best, we encouraged the public to dance in the video with us, and many people gladly cooperated! We’ve had a ton of fun making these videos, and so far we’ve gotten some great reactions from the public of NYC as well as the online community. We plan to continue promoting k*pop in the states with more dance videos in other locations. We just think k*pop is an awesome symbol of globalization and as young people we thought it was important to promote this kind of cultural diversity and meeting of East and West.
Much love to Abby for reaching out, this is what IVYBetty’s all about. Support CAB K*POPT NYC here and check them out on facebook at cab k*popt NYC
