K-pop star Psy's single ''Gangnam Style'' has been recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the most ''liked'' music video in YouTube history — and it's only been out since July of this year. Get a taste of K-pop, which is the music of South Korea, at the Korean Festival 2012. The event will host an army of talented K-pop performers. Kim Tae Woo, lead singer of the mega-popular g.o.d., will rock a star spot at the festival. His album T-virus was a runaway success featuring the catchy-as-all-get-out R&B breakup tune ''Love Rain.'' Houston's own Korean rap sensation J.U. will also take the stage. You might have seen him opening for the likes of Chamillionaire and Slim Thug recently. Not into K-pop? No problem; the festival also features traditional Korean music and arts as well as an exhibition of tae kwon do.
