I listen to a lot of music. Generally it’s either pure classical music (Bach, Rachmaninoff, Mozart) or electronic dance music aka EDM (Corsten, Oakenfold, Tiesto). Most of the music I will listen to is mainly for the melody and/or the tempo. The music also won’t have lyrics that I can understand because I tend start singing along if I understand the lyrics (like in American songs). Because of this reason, I also don’t always listen to what is playing on the radio.
Lately, someone introduced me to a Korean pop group known as TWICE. They are extremely popular in Korea after being formed via a reality TV show known as SIXTEEN. Their musical style is very integrates hip hop, R&B, and pop into catchy tunes. They are very similar to an older Kpop girl group known as Girl’s Generation/SNSD.
Anyways, there is a convention called KCON LA. For intents and purposes, it’s basically a music festival featuring Kpop artists performing live. TWICE is apparently coming back to KCON LA. Although my current situation doesn’t allow me freedom to participate as an audience, I took a look at the registration process. Considering just how much data that gets collected (and lost/stolen), the amount of data the people at KCON want is pretty amazing. Remember, this is just a registration page to purchase tickets. These questions should be asked AFTER a user has registered.
