While trot has more of an old style vibe as it’s mainly listened by older generations, it has been gaining more attention with young people thanks to shows like Mr Trot, Miss Trot, and Favorite Entertainment show. Some popular Kpop idols that sing and love trot are: Super Junior’s Leeteuk, SNSD’s Sooyoung, and Big Bang’s Daesung.
