In the first half of 2012, it grossed nearly US$3.4 billion,[6] and was recognized byTime magazine as "South Korea's Greatest Export".[7]

First gaining popularity in East Asia in the late 1990s, K-pop entered the Japanese music market towards the turn of the 21st century. In the late 2000s, it grew from a musical genre into a subculture among teenagers and young adults of East and Southeast Asia.[8] Currently, the spread of K-pop to other regions of the world, via the Korean Wave, is seen in parts of Latin America,[9][10][11]Northeast India,[12][13] North Africa,[14][15] the Middle East,[16][17] Eastern Europe[18][19] and immigrant enclaves of the Western world.[20][21][22][23]
