Hello, and welcome to my blog!
Here is where I’ll detail the ongoing process of my AP Research project, which is focused on analyzing South Korean pop music, or K-Pop.
More specifically, my project is focused on identifying particular properties of K-Pop songs, and how those properties relate to each song’s success. For my research, I use the Spotify Web API to analyze the songs, and use a variety of different sources to measure each song’s popularity (YouTube, music shows, and the Gaon Digital Chart).
Inspiration for my methodology largely came from a visualization project by Shaun Ellis and Tom Engelhardt that used a similar software to analyze Billboard 100 songs in America. Their work can be found here.
