awww, it's always the americans....<sighz deeply>. big bang and wondergirls. r they intending to just hold concerts, or actually releasing something there? i mean if it's just concerts for their american fans then its totally cool u know. totally agree with some people's comments though, i too think that they shouldn't have high hopes of being hot in america if they're releasing something... maybe they should aim for the japanese markets first....

i agree with the very first post.
korean style is very different from american's style. even the clothes are different.
and americans can be very mean. (I know cause i live in the U.S.)
wonder girls better stay in korea if they don't want some harsh comments and criticism. unless JYP have some major changes, wonder girls are gonna cry at U.S.
wonder girls just aren't for U.S.
it's like, Asian countries can understand the style of wonder girls, like China and Japan and stuff, but America? they have different thinkings and stuff. It's like, they don't understand very well of asian. (ugh, so complicated to explain)
ANYWAYS, so if wonder girls ever debut in america, well...good luck with that.
they will most likely have asian-american fans but real american-american fans? i don't know about that.

I really do love WG, but there's no freaking way they'll be make it in North America. The Pussycat Dolls get trashed enough here as it is, and they are actually pretty decent dancers--WG would get so much bad press. He should just let WG work in China (they seem pretty successful there), and maybe teach them some Japanese and then ship them to good old Nippon, 'cause freaking Morning Musume needs some competition.


You never know, they might make it


I doubt it. I really, really do. The "group" faze of music has passed in North America, and it's now all about emo bands...because a few years ago, when pop groups were popular, some band like freaking Tokio Hotel wouldn't have a chance in hell of succeeding in North America. Nowadays though, it's all a bunch of emo-wannabes with their Spock-like hair cuts and skinny jeans. Wonder Girls would be shoved into the same category of mock as Pussycat Dolls, but they wouldn't have any legitimacy like PCD (because PCD does have some legitimacy) because WG doesn't actually speak any English! Nor are any of them American bred.

They should think more about branching into the Chinese market (over a billion people...JYP...do your math!) and release a Chinese album.



I dont thin they should go to china, they should either stay in Korea or to some other place. Not china or japan thats way too common.


China should be the first place a singer should consider expanding to. To do good business, especially in entertainment, you need to have a large fanbase--and what's that? China. It's a 1 billion people nation, which means the possibility for a large fanbase (and from what I know, WG is already kinda popular in China. Their Chinese is pretty good, too.). Large fanbase equates large sales, sell out concert events, and merchandising.

Japan is another key country, and probably the most important--because if you can make it in Japan, and top Oricon once, you're pretty much number one in all of Asia.

And it's not like WG has anywhere else to go. If they conquer China and Japan, and along with their native Korea, it makes them a powerful group in Asia--to make in anywhere in the Pacific, you have to conquer the trifecta countries (by which I mean in massive sales and large number of fans), and so far, only a handful of singers have done that.

You need some new friends. I wouldn't hang out with them because they are jackass. Because they are just being racist and thats not cool. I got a lot friends that are White , Black and Asian. We respect the Asian culture.

Well maybe they want to be number one somewhere else besides asia. They might actually do good in the states.
