Which JPop artist/group has the most chance of being a success in the West?-Why?
Posted 6/9/08 , edited 10/1/08
I have selected a number of prominent J.E. groups who have been doing very well-some have stood the test of time or have already had some contact with the West.Please feel free to SUGGEST OTHER CANDIDATES (I will add them below and record votes for them)and to discuss the reasons you have voted for a particular group-add pics,links,etc-MAKE THIS POST AS INTERESTING TO READ AS YOU LIKE!

If you are from the West or have lived there your opinion would be very useful,indeed!I am interested in what the Western reaction would be to JPop and have included a song from each artist/group(a link is provided in case someone is unfamiliar with their music.)

The Candidates are KAT TUN

Hm I think arashi because they seem to be famous in other countries more than others. Well thats what i think.
Posted 6/9/08 , edited 6/9/08
Thank you for providing a good reason.I personally believe that the success of Jdramas such as Hana Yori Dango in countries outside of Japan have broadened Arashis' appeal.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts about why you think this group could succeed.Coming from the West I have the belief that Western audiences would love Hana Yori Dango(subbed!)This popular Jdrama has arguably boosted Arashis success outside of Japan due to Matsjun acting so well in a leading role.I think this JDrama might be one way of drawing attention to them in the West...
