K-pop fans were definitely thrilled during the grand opening ceremony of the most awaited 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics on February 9th as some of the most popular K-pop songs were played during the Parade of Nations.
The songs may have been new to most of the athletes and viewers worldwide, but this is the perfect opportunity for South Korea to share one of their most successful cultural exports around the globe — and that is K-POP.
And in the end a kpop shop owner talks about how the whole kpop merch is like arts starting from photobooks to photocards that fans exchange to even tickets for meet and greet. And the commentator says that the whole kpop business concept is very well thought through

OMG! The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s commentators talking about K-Pop during the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympic Opening Ceremony is hilarious! ‘Is Psy’s “Gangnam Style” considered K-Pop? BTS’s “DNA” is certified K-Pop!’ 😀 #olympics #kpop https://t.co/pOGwsRqPSD pic.twitter.com/WocgbRndIv

• Likey — Twice
• Fantastic Baby — Bigbang
• DNA (remix) — BTS
• Red Flavor — Red Velvet
The English Canadian commentators are kpop fans trying desperately to contain themselves from fangirling about it to a confused older commentator.
