PP-pop (short for Phinéas Padolski popular music, Pyeongrang popular music or Pyeongrang-Gangwol popular music; Phineaner: Muzik popular Phinéas Padolski/Muzik popular Pyeongrang/Muzik popular Pyeongrang-Gangwol; Gangwol Phineaner: Muzik pop Phinéas Padolski/Muzik pop loghak Gangwol-Pyeongrang; Taesongean: 평랑-강월대중음악; RRPyeongrang-Gangwol daejung eum-ak or 피피팝) is a genre of popular music originating in the Gangwol dialect speaking region, namely the capital city of Phinbella, Negara Awan, Territory of Flower, Phinbellan Unincorporated Territory and in the Phinbellan Maritime Territories (Maritime Kachi Kochi, Straits Settlements and Territory of Extraterritorial Authority of the Refugee Camp and Immigrant Settlements Area), as well as in Permata Mutiara. This pop music genre is a genre of music in Phinbella that uses the Gangwol Phineaner dialect, including two creoles based on this dialect, Pyeongrang Phineaner and Springwind Islands Phineaner, Phinbellan Taesongean, Yapreayan, and aboriginal languages in this region. PP-pop is influenced by various genres such as Phineaner pop, Taesongean pop, Europop and Dikir Barat, even the style of gospel and nasyid also influences this pop music. In the late RP 2600s and early RP 2610s, precisely in the era of the Phinbellan provisional government, this form of genre emerged with many plated songs i.e. the original song lyrics were changed to lyrics using the Gangwol dialect or Pyeongrang creole itself, it was accompanied by Dikir Barat and mixed with modern music.

The emergence of a boy band known as Valèntich and the Friends-Tones in RP 2610, joined by five teenagers including two of them coming from Permata Mutiara, featuring a mix of slow rock, pop and nasyid genres, has become a craze for many fans among teenagers and young adults throughout the Phinbellan Maritime Territories, and some got names in the genre like Abang-Face, BoBBY and so on until the beginnings of PP-pop "idol" culture at the same time. Those idol groups have broken this genre into the Oriental Taemhwan market, and also it is already gaining popularity all over Phinbella. PP-pop has continued its popularity internationally especially in countries that want to establish bilateral relations with Phinbella, and try to enter the markets of foreign superpowers.

These PP-pop songs are mostly sad songs (mostly called jiwang), songs that are divine (especially nasyid or gospel genre), and plated songs, but they are delicious to be heard by all walks of life and will be their favorite regardless of religion and races.


Origin and influences

Although PP-pop generally refers to pop music in the Phinbellan Maritime Territories and the Gangwol-speaking region, many fans regard it as an all-encompassing genre showcasing a wide spectrum of musical elements. Popular music in the region has its origins in the local musical tradition and the popular Apollonian and Euran music styles. Folk songs and dikir barat were early musical styles that became commonplace in Phinbella and Forajasaki music culture. Beginning in the -30BPs, the social and entertainment dances of Phineaner and Taesongean were performed on a common stage, a fusion of the musical genres of these two majority ethnic groups had developed into a local popular music as it was performed on remote islands.

Western popular music had influenced Phinbellan popular music in the -20BPs or about the mid-30BPs, a group of immigrants from Northern Keltia and Western Apollonia had introduced such musical rhythms and taught it in local schools, only rock and disco rhythms were introduced. These songs which are based on rock and disco melodies in Phinbella are known as lagu perasan and it started in the early -20BPs, these songs were sung in their own dialect, so much so that it became increasingly popular for expressing any feeling in music, such as the most famous singer Linda Flynn-Fletcher was known for her song “Koi Lindana, Koi Nok Gembire” in -15BP. At that time, the popularity of the lagu perasan increased with the emergence of Love Händel and The Storm.

In the late -10BPs and early RP 2600s, which would be the beginning of the Phinbellan provisional government, Çakari, Umraist (nasheed), dangdut, city pop and Pekan-kei music forms began to influence during this time and had a trend to spread in local pop music. Çakari and dangdut music has influenced the dikir barat industry at the moment, albeit full of advice in such industries, and there are many plated songs based on this music. At the same time, Phineaner, Taesongean and Sangunese rock genres including slow rock have been combined into one form of local alternative rock genre namely Phinbellan rock or Pyeongrang rock, or more simply known as Phinbellan soul (jiwang Phinbella). A local composer has been combining traditional and rock music with Gospel music since the spread of the Nazarene began from the beginning of the Phinbellan exploration. Also at the same time, the trot and Enka music developed by Taesongean and Sangunese newcomers has influenced other Phinbellan communities, yet the influence of folk songs is also very widespread. Thus, local trot and Enka music was developed by being sung in the Gangwol dialect. Many plated songs are created according to the rhythm of certain musics with very different lyrics, yet the songwriting is in favor of the original creator. In the mid-RP 2600s, anime theme songs, image songs and Taesongean pop songs have influenced local music and are still of interest to local young people until now, whatever the influence has been mixed with others until a genre was created called PP-pop which refers to many the musical influences of this region.

Systematic training of artists

Management agencies in Phinbella especially those based in the Phinbellan Maritime Territories and dependent territories offer binding contracts to potential new talent, most of whom can find them are young in age from 10 to 35 years old and come from different backgrounds and occupations. Although PP-pop and PhinK-pop are influenced by Taesongean pop, the training method is not the same but very systematic. Trainees live in a peaceful atmosphere even though it is partially controlled, but in accordance with the chosen genre and in accordance with the interests of a trainee, trainees are allowed to take time to learn existing skills such as singing or dancing, or other skills that they engage in, it's just that is required to learn a foreign language other than the Gangwol accent (as well as its creole and pidgin) and the Phinbellan Taesongean language in preparation for making their debut.

Hybrid genre and transnational values

PP-pop can be said to be a specific cultural product of the Phinbellan region which features "values, identity and meaning that go beyond its commercial value". It is characterized by a mixture of modern rock sounds, Western influences and Phineonesian local music influences with Taesongean performance aspects (including synchronized dance moves, formation changes and the so-called "point choreography" consisting of looping and repeating key movements, which is usually performed by most PP-pop idols) or Phineonesian performance aspects (usually when performing dangdut rock songs). It has been stated that there is a "vision of modernisation" that exists and is mixed with traditional and rural elements in Phinbellan pop culture.

Use of foreign phrases


Similar to Taesongean pop, many Phinbellan agencies based in major cities have introduced new idol groups to viewers or listeners through a "debut showcase", the difference being that the showcase is made up of online marketing and radio promotion and television, compared to Taesongean pop which did so only on television broadcasts. What is also different is that the idol group is given a name and "concept" by the group members and not by the agency, however it is considered a marketing hook and usually there are idol groups that have a double concept. This concept is the type of visual and musical theme that idol groups use during their debut or comeback. It is possible that the concept or the double concept can be maintained or replaced either in the debut and the comeback, and the proposed change of the concept is sometimes agreed or otherwise by the leader of the group, and as usual the fans often distinguish between the male band concept and the female band concept. As usual, concepts can also be divided between general concepts where they need to be maintained even if they are multiple concepts, and theme concepts, such as cute or fantasy and they can be changed. The new idol group in the PP-pop scene is quite similar to the Taesongean pop scene where they will often debut with a popular concept in the market to get a successful debut. PP-pop idol groups are not exempt from establishing sub-units or sub-groups formed among existing members, for example BoBoiBoy and the PTS, have their own sub-unit which is a sub-unit consisting of stepsiblings namely BoBoiFerb (Phineas and Ferb) which is famous for the song "High High", and also Trio-Q which is one of the PP-pop subgroups famous for participating in breakdance competitions.



The emergence of famous rap groups such as Pyeongrang Rapper Unit, Nico Nico Nee and Yaremashi in the late -10BPs paved the way for the development of contemporary PP-pop groups, and these rap groups combined rap and hip hop music in particular to revolutionize the music scene in the Gangwol speaking area. This adaptation of Western style extended to the fashion worn by the boy band: the members adopted a hip-hop aesthetic. The clothes of the rap groups are seen as the clothes of young people in the lively streets, usually seen taking influence from hip hop groups from neighboring countries or countries in the real world.

Since PP-pop became a modern hybrid of Western and Phineonesian or Keltian culture starting from the early RP 2600s, there have been many evolutions of fashion trends that reflect the diversity and differences in PP-pop, since the emergence of rap groups, they have adapted western styles in fashion but not everything can be adapted. Many influences of fashion trends from Taesongean pop and Phineaner pop or Fora pop that can smuggle into the PP-pop or PhinK-pop industry make it many idol groups that show this fashion image. Fashion trends from the early RP 2600s to the early RP 2610s can largely be categorized under the following:

  • Street: featured by hip hop idol groups focuses on individuality; featuring bright colors, mix and match styling, graphic prints and sports branding.
  • Retro: aims to bring back "nostalgia" from the -40BPs to the -20BPs; featuring detailed dot prints and patterns. Common clothing items include denim jackets, boot cut pants, wide leg pants, hair ties, scarves and sunglasses.
  • Sexy: highlights femininity and masculinity even though it is used with the dangdut genre; featuring revealing dresses made of satin, lace, fur and leather. Common clothing items include mini skirts, corsets, sheer stockings, high heels, sleeveless vests and see-through shirts. However, this sexy image is supplemented with long-sleeved shirts and tight pants, as is the habit of female idols to avoid wearing eye-catching clothing.
  • Black & White: emphasizes modern and stylish, symbolizes elegance and charisma, mostly used for formal wear. (Most nasyid idol groups who dress with this fashion concept but some of the clothes they wear have colors other than black and white, but gray can be categorized as black and white)
  • Futurism: usually used with electronic and hip-hop or pop rock genres; featuring colored items, metallic details and prints; promote a futuristic view.
  • Traditional: usually used with the folk genre, usually symbolizing the culture of an ethnic group such as Phineaners, Taesongean and so on, not forgetting also the fashion highlighted by idols from the Phinbellan Aboriginal people. Phineaner clothing items such as baju Mataba or baju kurung, samping, capiah, songkok or peci for men and also tudung bawal or various types of hijab for women (as long as it is not the type of hijab that does not cover the aurat) are also worn with the nasyid genre. Items of clothing such as hanbok, sari, cheongsam and so on related to each ethnicity are categorized as traditional.
  • Rural: In the era of the second generation of PP-pop where the urban community is used to clothes that seem to be all rural on the lower part of the body or the leg which is called a sarong or kain pelikat because it is possible that jeans are no longer worn for reasons of discomfort, only the shirt only modern clothes, and usually worn with various genres including rock, gospel (for the Nazarene) and dangdut (maybe a few), and usually worn by male idols especially Yapreayan idols in PP-pop. For example, Valèntich and the Friends-Tones and BoBoiBoy and the PTS are pioneers of rural idol fashion.

PP-pop has a significant influence on fashion in Phineonesia, where trends started by idols are followed by young audiences. Mat Phineas Flynn and Ferb Fletcher are among the idols who were crowned as Phinbellan fashion icons while in Danville, where they have repeatedly worked with fashion designer Gaston Le Mode, labeled as "muse". Both of them including some idols have established status as fashion icons.

According to a fashion designer expert from the University of the Straits Settlements known as Professor Abdul Fathi Muhammad, "PP-pop doesn't actually need to emphasize thin, tall and feminine looks with teenage or sometimes very cute facial expressions, regardless of whether they are male singers or women, usually those with big bodies are said to be cute."

In Shireroth, Hopsy released a PP-pop-inspired album in 1694. In contrast. PP-pop has been banned in the Unified Governorates of Benacia since the authorities first became aware of the phenomenon in the same year that Hopsy's album was first released. Owning, playing, or performing any piece of music deemed to be "PP-pop" carries the tariff of a mandatory ten year tour of duty with the Biological Remediation Service. Restrictions promulgated by national authorities culminated in the 1699 Edict of Prohibition against Degenerate Art issued by the Congress of Chryse.
