I studied general subjects, learning North and South Korean history and their relationships with Japan, allowing me to develop an identity as Korean including both North and South Korea. At the same time, I have developed a Japanese identity which is a cultural construction since I experienced Japanese culture at first hand: I learned Japanese as a native language, came in contact with Japanese Media and culture, and acquainted myself in Japanese society.

In this literature review, I will be looking at two articles; one for the importance of popular culture in education, and the other being opposed to the value it has on the educational system.

The concept of music is a definition that is not universally agreed upon and changes from place to place and even from person to person.

However, others like to think that music can even take the form of an activity that people use to instill a sense of comradery among its participants. Personally, I belong to many different cultures, musically however is where this diversity slims significantly. The musical culture of country music is one that I identify with as many others do from my hometown.
Pop Culture in Academia One may ask, is studying pop culture in academia worthwhile? In the 21st century, people are completely immersed in pop culture. According to Dictionary.com, popular culture is defined as “cultural activities or commercial products reflecting, suited to, or aimed at the tastes of the general masses of people” and it has become a norm in daily life (Popular culture, 2018). Due to pop culture’s massive influence, most of what we do is shaped by pop culture in some way; therefore, studying pop culture with all the same importance of any other subject would be beneficial in many ways.
