Korean Popular Music IQ Quiz

This quiz was originally for my AP Psych Application Project in which I analyzed if this quiz was a valid and reliable judge of kpop IQ. I discovered which questions were accurate and replaced the ones that weren't. Now, this quiz should be a good representation of your kpop knowledge! Enjoy! Copyright - sdno35 PS - This was made in Jan. 2010. No question's answer is one that might change over time, however some artists, songs, etc. May go out of style over time and not reflect up-to-date kpop knowledge. Please be aware of this if you are taking this in the far future!
