Influenced by E-Rock and Tasnican pop, suffused with the traditional Moogle talent for dancing and music, and assembled by a vast corporate machine, K-Pop ("Kuvallan Pop") has become a web phenomenon. Most of the songs are almost entirely in Mooglish, with a dash of common for the hook or refrain, a combination which has made most K-Pop hits devilish earworms. ("Kupopopopoppo LUVLUVLOVELOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE!")

An important element of K-Pop's success has been music videos, showcasing Moogle synchronized dancing talent and weaponizing cuteness to a lethal degree. A dozen or so moogles singing perfect pedal point harmonies while executing impossibly precise choreography are quite a site to behold. Many come to gawk only to find themselves hooked by the insidiously catchy lyrics.

Most K-Pop groups run on a "mega-group" model, with six, eight, or even twelve members. Corporate brand managers tend to treat them as interchangeable parts to a machine; either you're an idol or you're nobody. Notable K-Pop groups include Mog's Generation (credited with bringing the genre to a wide audience), THRICE, and ENDO (one of the most successful boy's groups.) Of course, rapper Kuganam's hit "Kupira Style" was a viral sensation on the OmniNet, ranking as one of the most viewed videos ever.
