So this is basically what’s going on. I’m in my high school’s Forensics club, and the event I’m participating in is the 4 Minute Speech. My topic for the event, which I’m surprised they actually passed, is K-pop. The speech has to be informative, on a “worthy” topic, and can be slightly persuasive (best not).
I’ve talked to my coach, and somehow, with absolutely no knowledge on K-pop, she narrowed the three main points down to culture/respect, strictness/freedom, and finally how and where you can find K-pop.
To be honest, I do not think these three points will be quite interesting enough to grab the judges’ attention, and keep their attention. The points don’t fully grasp just what K-pop IS. The last point I can answer in like two sentences, the big answer would be YouTube.
So I need help deciding just WHAT I should talk about. Obviously, I only have four minutes. One minute for each of the four topics. The other minute will be the intro and the conclusion.
I would appreciate some opinions, ideas, and advices. For K-pop fans, what would be some things in K-pop you would introduce and explain to other people to interest them? For people who are not familiar with K-pop, what would be some things that would interest you?
In addition, I need to have a catch in my intro. I was planning on using Gangnam Style since I assumed that almost everyone would have at least heard of it before. But lo and behold, my coach has no idea what Gangnam Style even is… What are some striking things in K-pop that you would probably not see anywhere else, or just something interesting. An idea I had was the synchronized dancing that’s basically required for any K-pop group.
Thank you!! ^^
