Chinese K-pop Stars Representing the Fourth Generation. One of the most important markets for K-Pop is China, which has the world’s sixth-largest music market. Several popular Korean pops acts actively tour China, and some even feature Chinese singers and songwriters.
Many Chinese citizens are currently residing in South Korea and performing as members of K-pop groups, despite the fact that K-pop was originally prohibited in China for various reasons. Many people of Chinese ancestry populate these communities.
In the fourth generation of K-pop, only a select few groups have never had a single member from outside South Korea. We’ve compiled a list of some of the most popular contemporary Chinese K-pop stars.
