ABSTRACT

From the 1920s to the 1940s, Korean and Chinese pop songs were in full bloom and enjoyed by the public. Recognizing that Korean and Chinese pop music has not been placed on the comparative list of studies together despite their historically close correlation, this study aims to reveal the development patterns of modern pop songs in Korea and China and explore new areas of research. The invasion of Western powers, which began at the end of the 19th century, opened the doors of China, and Korea also began to undergo drastic social changes due to Japanese aggression and colonial rule. In the process of spreading capitalist culture centered on Western Europe and Japan, Korean and Chinese pop music developed into diverse forms through fusion and harmony, not the dichotomy between traditional and foreign styles. In the 1930s, K-pop and Chinese pop developed with the popularity of ‘Shin Minyo’ and ‘Shin Min-ga’ based on their respectively traditional folk songs. In this text, we will look at the musical content of Korea’s “Shin Minyo” and China’s “Shin Min-ga,” which were widely sung in the 1930s and 40s and is an important part of pop music.

In particular, the two genres are have in common with emerging in historical backdrop of the Japanese colonial period, so wo can say, it is a more precious tasks.
