How many songs does Exo

K-Pop stands for Korean pop music. There are many different K-pop bands, including Chinese ones (with Korean and Chinese members). Songs from a band therefore often appear three times. Once as a Korean, once as a Chinese and once as a common version. In most of the songs there is not only singing but also rapping. The accompanying music videos also come in three versions. In a Korean version, in a Chinese version and in a version in which the members dance together. But when they perform, they don't split up. And if that is already too confusing: For bands that have only Korean or only Chinese members or simply too few members, this division is logically omitted.

Well-known bands in Asia as well as in Germany are called BTS, EXO, Big Bang, Got 7 and Black Pink. We briefly introduce them here:
