Hm I think arashi because they seem to be famous in other countries more than others. Well thats what i think.


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...




lol Well hana yori dango isnt what gotten me into arash and Jun but i think it might. It has a romance that alot of western girls love. Since I do live in america myself, plus i'm not asian either. I'm mexican! I know alot of girls that are white and mexican that love Matsujun and Arashi in the US so i hope there will be.

As much as I love my KinKi Kids, I think Arashi would do better, mostly for the younger crowd. Most of the people that I know around here really aren't interested in music and people from other countries. Maybe I just know the wrong people?

On the other hand....this is an example of one drama -based on a manga-that I could imagine doing well on our BBC channel(BBC3)aimed at young adults.Remote has all the things we love-a good looking guy,a confident female lead,a mystery to solve-and lots of comic book fun,too!Koichi Domoto is another good actor who might be introduced successsfully to the West in a similar way to Matsujun.For that matter,I like some of Kat Tun's Jdramas,too!

there's too many JE in the list. i have to say 'utada hikaru'. many ppl in USA already know her. esp, kingdom hearts fans n jpop listeners.

Yes,I agree I could have chosen a wider selection of artists.The poll has some restrictions-ie you can't choose more than a handful.This is one reason why I asked people to fill up the comments section,too so that other artists could be nominated and discussed.Utada Hikaru is an excellent choice.Can someone suggest a link so that we can hear the lady?
