The History of Hip Hop Music Lyrics Hip-hop music originated in the late 60s of the 20th century and continues to evolve to the present day. That what began more than 30 years ago, boiled over. Asian Women's Fund claimed that during the World War II, the Imperial Japanese Army recruited anywhere from tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of women from occupied territories to be used as sex slaves, euphemistically referred to as comfort women. Yoshimi Yoshiaki advocated that possibly hundreds of thousands of girls and women, mainly from China and the Korean Peninsula but also Southeast Asian countries occupied by the Imperial Japanese Army, as well as Australia and the Netherlands, were forced to serve as comfort women. According to testimonies, young women were abducted from their homes in countries under Imperial Japanese rule. In many cases, women were lured with promises of work in factories or restaurants. In some cases propaganda advocated equity and the sponsorship of women in higher education. Other enticements were false advertising for nursing jobs at outposts or Japanese army bases; once recruited, they were incarcerated in comfort stations both inside their nations and abroad. As early stage Korean hip hop was heavily influenced by African American hip hop, Korean hip hop artists naturally started using AAVE in their lyrics. The dominance of Korean American in the Korean hip-hop scene also contributed to the use of mixed language in Korean hip-hop. Korean American artists such as Drunken Tiger, Jay Park, and San E has included English lyrics in their raps and attracted the interests of the young generation.
Meanwhile, Korean hip-hop fans began congregating at a place that never existed before: the internet, supported by dial-up modem in the late 1990s. The fans who rejected the “rap dance” that was then prevalent in Korea got together on a primitive online bulletin board. At first they listened to American rap music together, then they started making their own music. This is considered Korea’s first “underground” hip-hop community — a virtual community that birthed the likes of Garion and DEFCON. These underground rappers sought their own version of authenticity by crafting rhymes in the Korean language. Their first attempts were plagued with amateurism, until the breakthrough moment came in the form of Verbal Jint’s 2001 EP “Modern Rhymes.” Freed from the mechanical reliance on end rhymes (in which the rhyme kicks only at the end of a clause, creating a rap verse made up of a stack of sentences that rhyme only at the last few syllables), Verbal Jint found a way to change the speed and emphases of his lyrics to create parallel structures with clauses of different lengths. Much like the way Rakim pushed rapping beyond the simple rhyme patterns of the early 1980s, Verbal Jint used the Korean language to create three-dimensional and progressive rhyming structure, unlocking the potential of Korean language within the logical framework of hip-hop.

Much of what is known about the origin of instruments is derived from Chinese and Korean historical books and administrative documents, such as the grand list of presents sent by the Chinese Song emperor to Korea in the year 1111. The list includes 10 sets of stone chimes and 10 bronze bell sets, along with five iron equivalents that sound in a higher register and numerous other instruments. Korean musicians performed successfully at the Chinese court, and Korean monks attended the international training centres in China to learn Buddhist chant. During the reign of Sejong (1419–50), new imperial shrine music and traditional Confucian ritual music were emphasized along with musical settings of epics written in the newly developed Hangul (Chosŏn muntcha) Korean alphabet. The grand traditions of China were preserved under the guidance of the court master of music, Pak Yŏn (1378–1458).

With the coup of Park Chung-Hee in 1961, a new economic policy began. In order to promote economic development, a policy of export-oriented industrialization was applied. President Park developed the South Korean economy through a series of highly successful Five-Year Plans. South Korea's economic development was spearheaded by the chaebol, family conglomerates such as Samsung, Hyundai, SK Group, LG Corporation. The chaebol received state-backing via tax breaks and cheap loans, and took advantage of South Korea's inexpensive labor to produce exportable products. The government made education a very high priority to create a well-educated populace capable of productively contributing to the economy. Despite occasional political instability, the Korean economy subsequently saw enormous growth for nearly forty years, in a period known as the Miracle on the Han River. The unparalleled economic miracle brought South Korea from one of the poorest states in the world after the Korean War into a fully developed country within a generation.

Korea was controlled by Japan under a Governor-General of Korea from 1910 until Japan's unconditional surrender to the Allied Forces on 15 August 1945. De jure sovereignty was deemed to have passed from the Joseon dynasty to the Provisional Government of the Republic of Korea.
From the 1st century, Goguryeo, Baekje, and Silla grew to control the peninsula and Manchuria as the Three Kingdoms of Korea (57 BCE–668 CE), until unification by Silla in 676. In 698, Go of Balhae established the Kingdom of Balhae (c.f. modern Bohai Sea) in old territories of Goguryeo, which led to the North–South States Period (698–926) of Balhae and Silla coexisting. The founding legend of Gojoseon, which is recorded in the Samguk Yusa (1281) and other medieval Korean books, states that the country was established in 2333 BCE by Dangun, said to be descended from heaven. While no evidence has been found that supports whatever facts may lie beneath this, the account has played an important role in developing Korean national identity. In the 12th century BCE, Gija, a prince from the Shang dynasty of China, purportedly founded Gija Joseon. However, due to contradicting historical and archaeological evidence, its existence was challenged in the 20th century, and today no longer forms the mainstream understanding of this period. .S. soldiers in the 50s, but it wasn’t until he released his debut solo single “Come Back to Busan Port” in 1975 that Yong-pil started to experience true success, including, notably, in Japan. Cho Yong-pil, sometimes referred to as “the Korean Michael Jackson,” would become the first Korean singer to perform at Carnegie Hall, which he did in 1980. That wouldn’t be his only rare concert appearance, either: in 2005, Cho became one of the very, very few South Koreans to hold a concert in Pyongyang, North Korea.
The Korean language is the official language of South Korea, spoken by 99% of the population. Korean is a curious language with no obvious linguistic cousins; different linguists argue that it is related to Japanese or to the Altaic languages such as Turkish and Mongolian After the Korean peninsula was partitioned into North and South after its liberation from the Japanese in 1945, Korea and Western culture first encountered each other, with American popular music filtering into the landscape through the U.S. troops that remained in the country after the end of the Korean War. Over time, American pop culture gradually became more accepted, and “trot” music, the oldest type of Korean pop music derived from the old changga songs, started to take a distinctly Americanized form. It was in this era that the first Korean pop stars appeared, such as:
These TV shows changed the notion of underground and overground hip hop music in Korea. Before the show, musicians who signed with major labels and frequently appeared on TV were considered overground rappers while ones who performed on small stages and worked independently were recognized as underground rappers. However, as hip hop TV shows made hip hop music a mainstream, even the underground rappers who were critical about overground rappers gained visibility through TV and started working with pop artists. Also, with the success of SMTM, underground rappers who negatively thought of signing with labels started considering the idea due to the promise of rising profits in the genre. For example, Deepflow of VMC who criticized overground rappers for commercializing the hip hop scene, actively participated in several hip hop TV show as a producer from 2017. Nafla and Loopy of Mkit Rain who criticized overground rappers for joining SMTM eventually joined SMTM season 7 as participants as well. Rather than being a stage for only the overground rappers, media and TV shows are now viewed as an opportunity for all types of new rappers to gain visibility and rise to the stardom. This transition has eventually blurred the distinction between underground and overground musicians. According to the mythic account recounted in the Samguk yusa, the Gojoseon (Old Joseon) kingdom was founded in northern Korea and southern Manchuria in 2333 BCE. During Joseon dynasty, a social hierarchy system existed that greatly affected Korea's social development. The king and the royal family were atop the hereditary system, with the next tier being a class of civil or military officials and landowners known as yangban, who worked for the government and lived off the efforts of tenant farmers and slaves. The General Sherman, an American-owned armed merchant marine sidewheel schooner, attempted to open Korea to trade in 1866. After an initial miscommunication, the ship sailed upriver and became stranded near Pyongyang. After being ordered to leave by the Korean officials, the American crewmen killed four Korean inhabitants, kidnapped a military officer and engaged in sporadic fighting that continued for four days. After two efforts to destroy the ship failed, she was finally set aflame by Korean fireships laden with explosives.
In 2001, then-underground rapper Verbal Jint released his first mini-album, Modern Rhymes, which introduced an innovation to Korean hip hop: rhyming. Prior to this, Korean hip hop lacked rhyming because it was seen as too difficult due to the grammatical structure of the Korean language. Verbal Jint's method for creating rhymes was widely adopted by other artists. Rap duo Garion also made an impact on the underground Korean hip hop community with their 2004 self-titled debut album, notable for being entirely in Korean. In its early days, most Korean hip hop fell into a category called "rap dance," where artists mixed rapping with pop music. Many K-pop artists incorporated rap into their music, from Seo-taji and Jinusean in 1990s to Big Bang and Block B in 2010s. However, raps in K-pop music was not considered a serious hip hop music and some hip hop musicians criticized K-pop music for commercializing hip hop. For example, rapper Ollti criticized K-pop rappers, commonly known as “idol rappers”, in his performances for being untalented and manipulated by large entertainment agencies.

In early 2017, the very first Korean Hip Hop Awards was presented by two of the largest Korean Hip Hop webzines HipHopLE and Hiphopplaya. Some of the awards included Rookie of the Year, Producer of the Year, Hip Hop Track of the Year, Hip Hop Album of the Year, and Artist of the Year. The winners being JUSTHIS, Groovy Room, BeWhy’s “Forever”, Nucksal’s “The God of Small Things”, and Jay Park respectively. In addition, the awards included a category showing which artists to look out for, such as Live and Mac Kidd. During this period, laws were codified and a civil service system was introduced. Buddhism flourished and spread throughout the peninsula. The development of celadon pottery flourished in the 12th and 13th centuries. The production of the Tripitaka Koreana onto 81,258 wooden printing blocks, and the invention of the metal movable type attest to Goryeo's cultural achievements. Since mid-1990s, Hongdae became the physical center of Korean hip hop scene. Hongdae, a northwestern part of Seoul, is named after a nearby Hongik University in the area. Widely known for its prestigious art/music college and liberal atmosphere, Hongik University contributed to the emergence of youth culture including hip hop music in the area. From the late 1990s, a number of clubs began to emerge in Hongdae where various types of music such as rock, techno, and hip hop were played. Master Plan (MP), originally an indie rock club located in greater Hongdae area, is often regarded as the birthplace for underground Korean hip hop. MP worked as a site for consuming, performing and sharing hip hop music. Street hip hop events such as Everyone's Mic hosted by Hiphopplaya also took place in Hongdae. Everyone's Mic is a weekly open rap competition for underground musicians where participants perform freestyle rap based on the beat played by the DJ. Hongdae not only functioned as a tangible place for production and consumption, but also became a symbolic place for underground hip hop music and imaginary gohyang (hometown) for musicians to build their identities. According to legend, the kingdom of Silla began with the unification of six chiefdoms of the Jinhan confederacy by Bak Hyeokgeose in 57 BCE, in the southeastern area of Korea. Its territory included the present-day port city of Busan, and Silla later emerged as a sea power responsible for destroying Japanese pirates, especially during the Unified Silla period. Around 300 BCE, a state called Jin arose in the southern part of the Korean peninsula. Very little is known about Jin, but it established relations with Han China and exported artifacts to the Yayoi of Japan. Around 100 BCE, Jin evolved into the Samhan confederacies.

Korean art during recorded history dates from 57 BCE, the start of the Three Kingdoms Period (c.57 BCE - 668 CE), during which the country was ruled by three monarchies: the Goguryeo (Koguryo) kingdom (c.37 BCE-668 CE) an austere culture with links to northern China, that flourished in the north of the country (capital Pyongyang); the. Yanggum Yanggum is a percussion string instrument which is sounded by Chae (bamboo-made, thin plectra). The name Yanggum means the Western harp. This kind of instruments are wide spread in the world as traditional national instruments, and were introduced into the professional music of circles of Korea in the 18th century Unlike American hip hop, Korean hip hop started in the rooms and personal computer spaces of hip hop fans and then moved to the streets and performance spaces of Hongdae. The following is a list of notable events and releases that happened in 2018 in music in South Korea.
The Later Three Kingdoms period (892 – 936) consisted of Later Silla and the revival of Baekje and Goguryeo, known historiographically as "Later Baekje" and "Later Goguryeo". During the late 9th century, as Silla declined in power and exorbitant taxes were imposed on the people, rebellions erupted nationwide and powerful regional lords rose up against the waning kingdom. Following in the footsteps of Seo Taiji, H.O.T. (High-five Of Teenagers) were part of the first wave of Korean boy bands, and were the first pop group to sell a million albums, which is even more of accomplishment considering that South Korea was experiencing a financial crisis during H.O.T.’s heyday. H.O.T. would become so, well, hot, that they would be the first pop group to hold a show at Seoul Olympic Stadium, and they would go on to star in a Space Jam-esque sci-fi soccer movie called Age of Peace in 2000, before the disbanding in 2005..

Korean hip hop's profile was again heightened in 2012 with the debut of the TV reality series, Show Me The Money. The show, which features both underground and mainstream rappers, is credited with increasing the popularity of hip hop in Korea. Viewer ratings for SMTM season 4,5 and 6 continued to exceed 2%, which is exceptionally high for a cable TV channel program. During August 2015, July 2016, August 2017 and October 2018 when SMTM was aired, hip hop was the most popular genre in Mnet Top 100 Korean music chart. SMTM worked as an opportunity for the unknown amateur rappers including Bewhy in season 5, Woo Wonjae in season 6, and Coogie in season 7 to increase their popularity and sign with major labels. SMTM also increased the visibility of underground professional rappers such as P-Type, Nuksal, and Nafla to the general public. While most artists label their music as “Korean hip hop” in their lyrics or interviews; some musicians consciously move away from it by calling their music as just “hip hop.” Some artists confessed their discomfort in labeling their music as “Korean” hip hop claiming that they would rather have their music be heard as hip hop. These artists wanted their music to be placed within global hip hop and alongside what is currently being produced in America. Dok2, one of the most recognized figure in Korean hip hop scene, once mentioned, "We are sharing a global trend. It is not a Korean musician copying an American song, but rather sharing a musical trend as one of the many hip hop musicians in the world. I simply think of my music like this: Can I imagine this song being released in America and not just in Korea? Will people like it? Does it not drift away from the bigger picture? If we listen to it alongside what is topping the iTunes hip hop chart, does it fit there? If I look at other Korean rappers’ music, it does not fit at all. Of course, there is a trend that is uniquely Korean, but that is gayo. That is K-pop and not hip hop." Featured Folk Music Piece: Song of Chunhyang: Song of Chunhyang is the most popular of the five remaining works of pansori, Korea's unique epic narrative vocal form. There is an ancient legend associated with this pansori work which tells of a small southern village called Namwon and a village girl called Chunhyang
In 1231, the Mongols began their invasions of Korea during seven major campaigns and 39 years of struggle, but were unable to conquer Korea. Exhausted after decades of fighting, Goryeo sent its crown prince to the Yuan capital to swear allegiance to the Mongols; Kublai Khan accepted, and married one of his daughters to the Korean crown prince, and for the following 80 years Goryeo existed under the overlordship of the Mongol-ruled Yuan dynasty in China. The two nations became intertwined for 80 years as all subsequent Korean kings married Mongol princesses, and the last empress of the Yuan dynasty was a Korean princess.[self-published source] Korea became linked by telegraph to China in 1888 with Chinese controlled telegraphs. China permitted Korea to establish embassies with Russia (1884), Italy (1885), France (1886), the United States, and Japan. China attempted to block the exchange of embassies in Western countries, but not with Tokyo. The Qing government provided loans. China promoted its trade in an attempt to block Japanese merchants, which led to Chinese favour in Korean trade. Anti-Chinese riots broke out in 1888 and 1889 and Chinese shops were torched. Japan remained the largest foreign community and largest trading partner. The Guerrilla Dynasty: Politics and Leadership in North Korea, 1999. Cumings, Bruce.

Seo and the boys may have gotten the lowest possible score from the show’s jury for their performance of what would become their signature song, “Nan Arayo (‘I Know’),” but their hip-hop and new jack swing-influenced songs became massively successful, paving the way for an entirely new format of pop in Korea.

Korea has had a tumultuous history, from warlords to Japanese invasions, the Korean War, and the Cold War, which ultimately led to the division of the Korean Peninsula. These events have shaped the modern Korea of today, which is now home to some of the leading consumer products and car makers in the world Moving on from cheap, lower-value light industry exports, the South Korean economy eventually moved onto more capital-intensive, higher-value industries, such as information technology, shipbuilding, auto manufacturing, and petroleum refining. Today, South Korea is a leading economy and a technological powerhouse, rivaling even countries such as the United States in information and communication technology. South Korean pop culture has also boomed abroad in recent years, in a phenomenon known as the Korean Wave. . Mic Swagger, a YouTube-based freestyle rapping contents that invites different hip hop musicians as guests each episode, became a huge success throughout its four seasons since 2009 and contributed to the popularization of freestyle rap. Also, in response to the criticism against the mainstream hip hop media like Mnet, hip hop artists started creating independent channels to express their thoughts and present their music to the public. Hip hop label H1gher Music partnered with Dingo, an online media contents creator, to promote new songs independent from the mainstream media. In 2018, rapper Mommy Son released a song named “Mommy Jump” through his YouTube channel after being eliminated from SMTM season 7. The song which directly condemned Mnet and SMTM became a massive hit and was nominated the hip hop song of the year with 38 million YouTube view (as of June 2019).
Being on the border of Chinese culture, Korea was able to maintain certain ancient traditions during periods of foreign domination in China proper. Such marginal survivals are of particular importance because many have continued to the present day, thus giving extremely rare examples of music traditions long gone from the land of their origin. For instance, in the Silla period, court music was divided into hyang’ak, Korean music; tang’ak, Tang and Song Chinese music; and a’ak, Confucian ritual music. The instruments used for these ensembles were of Chinese derivation and included sets of tuned stones (in Korean p’yŏn’gyŏng) and bells (p’yŏnjong), mouth organ (saeng), and instruments in all the other eight categories of Chinese classical traditions (e.g., those based on the materials used in their construction). In the 21st century both North and South Korea, unlike China, continue to support national institutes that train players for ensembles using such instruments in the institutes themselves and in Confucian rituals. Among the many instrumental treasures still played in Korea is the ajaeng, a zither—with seven strings and movable bridges—that is not plucked but, most unusually, bowed with a rosined stick of wood. South Korea History, Language and Culture History of South Korea. The first unified Korea was under the Silla, a Gyeongju-based empire that stretched over most of the peninsula. The empire fragmented in CE 870, giving way to the Koryo dynasty, who allied themselves with the Song dynasty in China Later Silla carried on the maritime prowess of Baekje, which acted like the Phoenicia of medieval East Asia, and during the 8th and 9th centuries dominated the seas of East Asia and the trade between China, Korea and Japan, most notably during the time of Jang Bogo; in addition, Silla people made overseas communities in China on the Shandong Peninsula and the mouth of the Yangtze River. Later Silla was a prosperous and wealthy country, and its metropolitan capital of Gyeongju was the fourth largest city in the world. In 1392, General Yi Seong-gye established the Joseon dynasty (1392–1910) after a coup d'état that overthrew the Goryeo dynasty in 1388. King Sejong the Great (1418–1450) implemented numerous administrative, social, scientific, and economic reforms, established royal authority in the early years of the dynasty, and personally created Hangul, the Korean alphabet.
The incorporation of trap music in Korean hip hop has become a major factor to its growing success overseas. Though less popular in his native Korea, rapper Keith Ape became a viral sensation in 2015 with his song, "It G Ma." The song is credited with helping expand Korean hip hop's audience abroad. He has stated in a Complex interview, “It’s important to me to be acknowledged by the birthplace of hip-hop culture and I’m thankful for everything that’s happened. Many Western people who don’t speak Korean now know the phrase ‘It G Ma’.” The following year, Eung Freestyle (응프리스타일) performed by DPR Live, Sik-K, Punchnello, Owen Ovadoz, and Flowsik gained attention with the help of Youtube’s Music’s Ad Campaign. The 3rd and 4th centuries were characterized by territorial competition with the Chinese and Xianbei, resulting in both losses and gains. Goguryeo initiated the Goguryeo–Wei War by attacking a Chinese fortress in 242 in an attempt to cut off Chinese access to its territories in Korea. Cao Wei of the Three Kingdoms of China retaliated by invading and destroying Hwando in 244. This forced the king to flee with Cao Wei in pursuit and broke Goguryeo's rule over the Okjeo and Ye, damaging its economy. The king eventually settled in a new capital, and Goguryeo focused on rebuilding and regaining control. In the early 4th century Goguryeo once again attacked the Chinese (now Sima Jin) to cut off their access to Korea and this time succeeded, and soon afterward conquered Lelang and Daifang ending the Chinese presence in Korea. However Goguryeo's expansion led to confrontation with the rising Xianbeis. The Xianbeis devastated Goguryeo's capital in the mid 4th century and the king retreated. Goguryeo eventually regrouped and began striking back in the late 4th century by King Gogukyang, culminating with the conquests of Gwanggaeto the Great. Definition & Mini-History Guide KPop or K-Pop is short for Korean Pop. It can refer to the whole of popular music in Korea, but is often used in a narrower sense to describe the genre that has dominated the Korean music market for about the last 20 years
But for the purpose of this series, K-pop is used to mean Korean popular music, i.e. commercially recorded music for the purpose of being consumed by the general public, which would exclude Korean traditional music or classical music. At any rate, K-pop is much, much more than boy/girl bands At its peak in the 4th century during the reign of King Geunchogo, Baekje absorbed all of the Mahan states and subjugated most of the western Korean peninsula (including the modern provinces of Gyeonggi, Chungcheong, and Jeolla, as well as part of Hwanghae and Gangwon) to a centralized government. Baekje acquired Chinese culture and technology through maritime contacts with the Southern dynasties during the expansion of its territory. Goguryeo reached its zenith in the 5th century, becoming a powerful empire and one of the great powers in East Asia, when Gwanggaeto the Great and his son, Jangsu, expanded the country into almost all of Manchuria, parts of Inner Mongolia, parts of Russia, and took the present-day city of Seoul from Baekje. Goguryeo experienced a golden age under Gwanggaeto and Jangsu, who both subdued Baekje and Silla during their times, achieving a brief unification of the Three Kingdoms of Korea and becoming the most dominant power of the Korean peninsula. Jangsu's long reign of 79 years saw the perfecting of Goguryeo's political, economic and other institutional arrangements. In the modern era, the manufacture and direction of Korea popular culture is more tightly controlled than ever: the current K-pop landscape is dominated by pop groups that periodically emerge from incubation under the training, management, and absolute total control of the record labels. The major labels are really more like colossal artist management and image consulting conglomerates, and they maintain absolute legal control over their charges – a widely-criticized practice which has come to be known as “slave contracts.” Contracts from the Big Three record labels (SM, YG, and JYP Entertainment) are notoriously one-sided and long-running, with a vanishingly small percentage of an act’s total earnings actually going to the artists. The practice was started by SM Entertainment founder Lee Soo-man, who called the contracts part of his “cultural technology” and justified them by saying it was an effective and efficient means of spreading the Hallyu across the world.Balhae was founded only thirty years after Goguryeo had fallen, in 698. It was founded in the northern part of former lands of Goguryeo by Dae Joyeong, a former Goguryeo general or chief of Sumo Mohe. Balhae controlled the northern areas of the Korean Peninsula, much of Manchuria (though it didn't occupy Liaodong peninsula for much of history), and expanded into present-day Russian Primorsky Krai. Balhae styled itself as Goguryeo's successor state and inherited Goguryeo culture. It also adopted the culture of Tang dynasty, such as the government structure and geopolitical system.
Goguryeo was founded in 37 BCE by Jumong (posthumously titled as Dongmyeongseong, a royal given title). Later, King Taejo centralized the government. Goguryeo was the first Korean kingdom to adopt Buddhism as the state religion in 372, in King Sosurim's reign. One Protestant progressive was Yun Chi-ho (1867-1945), an aristocrat who had become a Christian at the Anglo-Chinese School in Shanghai, while in exile following the failure of a coup in 1884 After Emperor Gojong died in January 1919, with rumors of poisoning, independence rallies against the Japanese colonizers took place nationwide on 1 March 1919 (the March 1st Movement). This movement was suppressed by force and about 7,000 persons were killed by Japanese soldiers[note 3] and police. An estimated 2 million people took part in peaceful, pro-liberation rallies, although Japanese records claim participation of less than half million. This movement was partly inspired by United States President Woodrow Wilson's speech of 1919, declaring support for right of self-determination and an end to colonial rule after World War I. Min Yoon-gi (민윤기) known by his stage name Suga (슈가) or Agust D is a South Korean rapper, singer, songwriter and record producer. He is the lead rapper of BTS, also he is notable for his large input in songwriting and is the major music producer between the members.
