The book I mentioned in Round 3: K-POP SHINKANKAKU NO MEDIA (K-pop, the Media of New Sense, Iwanami Shoten, 2018) by Dr. Seong-Min Kim. I read it in the Korean-translated version “케이팝의 작은 역사”(글항아리, 2018). He is a Korean scholar residing in Japan, and the majority of his work is to find a relation between Korean and Japanese pop culture.
I wrote a piece called “The meaning of BTS receiving Billboard Music Award” (방탄소년단 빌보드 수상의 의미 http://idology.kr/8911) in 2017.
