Not to be confused with Luk khrueng.

Luk krung or "look krung" (ลูกกรุง, literally "child of the city"), also called phleng luk krung (เพลงลูกกรุง), is a genre of Thai popular music. It is a more polished, urban style, compared to its folk music counterpart, luk thung.[1]

The first and most famous luk krung group was the Suntharaphon band (วงดนตรีสุนทราภรณ์).

Not to be confused with "luk kreung" (ลูกครึ่ง), literally "child half", referring to offspring of a Thai and a non-Thai.
