The team at Spotify has curated a special playlist “Korean OSTs” inspired by the current top Korean movies and TV dramas.
“K-Pop is not the only Korean import that is making waves around the world, we’re all crazy about Korean TV dramas and movies as well! We created the playlist because we wanted to help our fans reconnect with the full range of emotions they get from watching their favourite dramas and movies, wherever they are. So even if you’re not familiar with the language, you might be able to find that incredible song you heard in the show on this playlist!” – Sunita Kaur, Managing Director, Spotify (Asia).
Spotify has been also working with Korean R&B singer-songwriter sensation Dean to promote his music across the world, and he is currently getting a lot of buzz outside of Korea. Dean was also the first ever Asian artist to perform at Spotify House during SXSW 2016.
In addition, NCT U is hot rookie debut band from SM Entertainment, which has reached as high as number 4 on the Global Viral 50 list, which is one of the highest for a K-Pop track on that chart.
