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.
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.
