The Korean cultural tsunami is sweeping the globe. But what exactly makes K-pop so unique? Find out what’s their special recipe for creating such global hits.

Despacito proved it right that pop speaks every language. Globalisation has formed prospects for art – music, film or literature– to transcend language and accomplish a global impact.
