K-Pop Group Controversy
We really haven't heard much about the music genre called K-Pop since 2012 when Korean singer Psy had his worldwide hit "Gangnam Style". The song has thankfully disappeared from the airwaves, although you might occasionally hear it at a wedding reception! But the genre recently reappeared in the news when the all-girl Korean K-Pop group was denied entry into the United States by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials at LAX. Their publicist allegedly told news media that the girl group was mistaken as "working girls" and denied entry! Customs says no, the girls were traveling on Tourist visas when clearly they were trying to enter to perform, something that requires a different type of entry visa. Whatever the case, they were sent home to Seoul on the next flight. And so with K-Pop in the news again, we present the hit "Closer" by OH!MyGirl (ROK).
