How did hip hop travel across musical, linguistic, geographical, and sociocultural boundaries to root itself in Korea? Now that it’s there, how is hip hop understood and lived in Korea? Serving as a connecting link, or yeon-gyeol-go-ri (YGGR), music brings together people, places, histories, and cultures. We invite you to follow the global travels of music through the lives and works of five influential artists who have made history in Korean hip hop.

Professor Josh Kun and PhD candidate Myoung-Sun (Kelly) Song of the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism will engage these artists in a fascinating conversation about the meaning of hip hop in Korean society. Then, the artists will take the stage for an exciting live concert.
