A U.S music magazine revealed a list of 10 K-pop groups most likely to break in America.
On May 20, Rolling Stone has picked 10 K-pop groups who would most likely succeed in America. They include SNSD, 2NE1, Big Bang, Wonder Girls, After School, SHINee, Ailee, Sistar, B2ST, and Miss A.
The magazine highly praised Girls’ Generation’s choreography and their music. It also mentioned 2NE1 members as the “genre-hopping and large personalities.” Ailee attracted attention because she was the only solo rookie singer to make the list.
Rolling Stone added, “K pop embraces genre fusion with both singing and rap, and there usually is a repetition of the chorus. Their popularity comes from performance and strong visuals.”
Netizens commented: “I guess Koreans and Americans have similar likings.” “SNSD is the trend.”
