With the growing k-pop fandom, k-pop festivals in different countries are becoming very common.
There may be more than approx 7.8 billion fans throughout the world. Though a bit late compared to the other countries, according to Statista, with the survey conducted, more than 52 percent of respondents considered it too popular in Malaysia.
The Korean Wave, or “Hallyu,” has brought new cultures amidst the existing ones, resulting in a fusion in the culture of two or more places.
Not only did the music groups and bands become popular, but the change in food habits and style, beauty products and cosmetics, and fashion can be seen.
In Malaysia, there are more fans than on the stage of “Sarang-haeyo.”
This drastic development of the K-pop lifestyle within Malaysian culture helped the academics to brood more on this fusion and research waves of K-pop in different fields (like cultural and political studies, communication, language, and marketing).
