I've done this for a local anime convention in Minnesota to generate interest and Kpop and thus Pump.

Having gone to school in Korea (K-12), I lived the Kpop experience since then going to and from the states and home.

Though I know most names and labels, and some history, I admit there must be more that I must learn to share for others, especially in recent years.

So yes, I know nearly all the artists ever featured in Pump, and then some, but are there certain artists, groups, or labels in the Korean music industry worth mentioning?  

I'm covering everyone from the beginnings with Taiji & Boys up to the present, covering many genres of music, so my prior knowledge is what I've grown up listening to, and whats been in Pump.

The groups that pose significance for me personally is probably The Movement Crew groups and YG Family, even if I don't like a lot of the music coming out from there.


Actually, you probably know more than I do... can K-Pop be broad enough to cover stuff like Crash, No Brain, Vassline, Pia, etc.?

For all I know, Korean rock music is not as publicly out there thanks to emphasis and priority coverage of major group bands or the big labels, or especially musicians that perform music with lyrical content that complies to censorship standards for public performances, especially on TV.

What other groups or artists are considered the Movement Crew besides Drunken Tiger and Dynamic Duo?
