K-POP Dictionary is a book targeted to K-POP fans. The book contains the most used expressions from Korean songs and Dramas. In many occasions, these expressions belong to a very informal language register, so this dictionary will help fans to understand the messages of each song.
Each expression or term appears written in Korean and Romanized. After, there is a definition of each term and also an example that contextualizes each expression. It is not necessary to learn Hangeul to use this book because it is mainly targeted to K-POP fans who wish to learn and understand what they listen in each song.
