About Trot

Trot (트로트, RR: teuroteu), also known by the onomatopoetic term Ppongjjak (뽕짝), is a genre of Korean popular music, known for its use of repetitive rhythm and vocal inflections. Originating in Korea during Japanese colonial rule in the first half of the 20th century, Trot was influenced by many genres of Korean, Japanese, U.S. and European music.Almost 100 years have passed since Trot was born. The distinct singing style of the genre has developed continuously. Trot music got its shape in rhythms during Japanese colonial rule. After the liberation of the Korean peninsula and the Korean War (1950-1953), talented artists like Lee Mi-Ja, Bae Ho, Nam Jin, Na Hun-a, Ju Hyeon-mi and many others contributed to make Trot popular. With the rise of K-Pop from the 1990s onwards, Trot music lost some popularity and was thereafter viewed as more old-fashioned. However, since the 2000s, young Trot singers including Jang Yun-jeong and Hong Jin-young, and K-pop singers including Super Junior-T, Daesung, and Lizzy, helped renew interest in the genre and popularise it among young listeners.Although the genre originated before the division of the Korean peninsula, Trot is now sung mainly in South Korea since the associated pop culture no longer exists in North Korea where propaganda music has displaced other musical forms.
