Abstrakt

W artykule omówiono wizualne kody nienormatywności w wybranych teledyskach koreańskiej muzyki popularnej, podejmując próbę osadzenia ich w estetyce atrakcyjności płci, która odchodzi od tego, co uważa się za normę społeczną w kulturze południowokoreańskiej. W pierwszej części przedstawiono zwięzłą historię i obecne granice południowokoreańskiej muzyki popularnej, następnie omówiono konstrukt płci kulturowej i jego wzajemną relację z tak zwaną płcią biologiczną oraz wyrażaniem pożądania. W kolejnej sekcji prześledzono zmiany w rozumieniu normatywności oraz pojęcie queer. Analiza przykładów teledysków k-pop powstałych po roku 2007 i obecnych w nich przedstawień męskości pozwoliła na odczytanie wybranych teksów jako przestrzeni liminalności opierających się normatywnym zasadom kulturowym i społecznym.
