K-pop or Korean Pop is a phenomenon that has swept through the world. With artists gathering hundreds of millions of views on YouTube we must ask the question, why? What makes people want to become fans of K-pop here in our community which is so far removed from South Korea, the progenitor of this music? In this story, we will follow a couple of fans who are a part of the group AZSPECIALTEA, a group of K-pop fans, as they prepare for a local event celebrating K-pop in our desert community. We will pull back the covers and show our viewers why people love K-pop and how it is a part of our community here in Southern Arizona.
