In case you were unaware, K-pop, aka Korean pop music, is pretty much ruling right now. There are bars coast to coast that play nothing but K-pop videos, and BTS, arguably the biggest band of the genre, have already performed on Saturday Night Live and this year became the first K-pop band to top the Billboard album charts. This weekend, the Shadle Library and Jecheon Sister City Association are teaming up to present an hourlong exploration of South Korean pop. Be prepared to learn some dance moves popular in the genre, and bring an appetite, too — there will be some Korean snacks available. The event is part of Spokane Public Library’s celebrations in May of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.
Sat, May 25 from 3:30-4:30 pm • Free • Shadle Library • 2111 W. Wellesley • spokanelibrary.org/shadle • 444-5300
