Make It Pop is a new K-Pop show from Nickelodeon that shows just how much Korean pop culture is moving beyond the border lines of its own country. The new Nickelodeon show stars three young and stylish female students who are on the path of pursuing their dreams to put together their own K-Pop band. Emulating other hit shows like Glee, Make It Pop will feature musical performances in every episode.

As well of the cultural fusion being of significance, another noteworthy detail about the show is that it will be aired in a "20-day burst" rather than once a week. This format is set to appeal to a younger demographic that likes the instant gratification of cat memes and viral videos. Judging by how well Psy's viral Gagnam Style video captivated global audiences, this K-Pop show could be the start of a new sensation.
