“What Exactly Is K-Pop?” [Sat.1 TV Interview]3 min read


CEO of BLACK ONE ENTERTAINMENTKlaus H. Wilch, was exclusively interviewed by the major German TV station Sat.1 for a two-part TV special on K-Pop.

Overview Of The “What is K-Pop?” Interview

How has K-Pop been able to consistently grow over the past decade?

Klaus explains why K-Pop managed to grow from a niche music genre to a billion dollar industry. Of course, the growth of Social Media and platforms like YouTube have been crucial for the rise of K-Pop.

However, despite its heavy focus on music, K-Pop overlaps into many other industries.

Diversity is key.

What Makes K-Pop’s Approach Different?

The many ventures into industries like Fashion, Beauty have all helped expand K-Pop’s overall reach. One might even argue that it’s part of the reason why K-Pop is feverishly adored by an ever-growing global audience.

The systematic training, development, marketing and career approach of these Korean entertainment powerhouses (YG Entertainment, JYP Entertainment, Big Hit Entertainment, SM Entertainment) are so unique and competitive, yet is still nowhere to be seen in the Western world.
