Honestly, this project took over three months to complete from finding information, translating, downloading, brainstorming, editing, saving, losing files and so on. This was one of the longest project I had done. To even better the video, I spent my hard earned time trying to find a perfect editing software to make the video look clean cut for all of you guys and trust me, I tried. It may not look nice and neat to some, but please understand the time spent to make this video.
Firstly, let me explain what this video is about. The first video (part 1) will introduce what the Hallyu Wave and Kpop are. It will discuss the international fame it took and then we shall move on to videos and music. If you don’t understand what I mean, watch the video.
If you’re wondering why I have part one stated in the title is because this is the first part of the five part series I’ll be uploading. So far three parts have been done, saved and ready. I’ll upload each parts maybe once every week or whenever I can. So it should take a minimum of five weeks to reveal all the videos and a maximum of seven weeks.
The first part only includes Kpop music from 1995 to 2001. The other parts will contain the rest of the years till 2011.
How do I know what songs to put in the video? To get a definite source of the famous and ‘good’ music of kpop in the years of 1995 to 2011, I checked out many Korean award shows. One that gave me a lot of help was the MAMAs or MNet’s Asian Music Awards. So, now you all know that I didn’t just select what songs to throw in. I actually did my research on artists/songs/genres/albums that made it big now and then. NOTE: Keep in mind that it wasn’t ONLY MAMAs that I used to pick what artists/songs to place in the video.
Anyway, I’ll stop boring you all.. check out part 1.. NOW!
