Hmm, I dont know about that. But, the recent attempts were a total failure. I dont think America is ready for the korean wave. Not until Big Bang makes a debut. I think Big Bang caters to the western listeners. Im a big big big fan of Western pop/hip hop. Big Bang might just make it to the hollywood scene.


I think Big Bang is capable of making it big in America.

Yes. Maybe not all Korean artists will be welcome in America, but that's life. The music in Asia and America...well, there is a slight of difference. ><


I know, huh? I'll be really really proud of them if they make it big in Hollywood. Their music is so western so it might work.


Yeah. I agree with you :)
I just want to see Big Bang do it great, because yeah, they deserve it.

I don't think so.

Oh and about BoA dancing chart thing:
1) nobody give a sh*t about and it is not a success indicator.
2) hikaru who's english album was a Failure and with no promotion, one of her album songs chart NO1 for a long time yet boa charting At 15 with all the massive promotion and money.




Oooohh I read about that. That song was Devil Inside right? It was a really huge club/dance song even though she had like ZERO promotions...

Relating to the Boa issue:

I read somewhere that her remixes of "Eat you up" are being played in the clubs and as awesome as that sounds, I don't think that's where she aimed it to be. Her song has yet to be played on a radio station, which, if I may mention, is extremely important. I mean, I kind of felt hysterical knowing that she debuted in America yet for some reason, I haven't seen/read/heard about her anywhere over here.

I'm not so mainstream so it would be a smart idea to ask my friends who are. None of them have heard of her either. She could be number one on any damn chart out there but if it's not getting through to the youth, she's wasting her time. I was doubtful of this transition but as her fan, I was anticipating at least hearing something about her. Lol...guess not.

well...some very slack comments ive read here!!! gosh!! too many nasties for the new year!! but i get the gist, i guess...

im not from the states so i have no idea wat the reception of these korean artists is like...but i can guess. i didnt expect much from them as one after another debut in the states....i mean the accent is one huge issue. no matter wat many fans say, no asian artists coming directly from an asian country can master english with no hint of an accent....im not nasty, just honest and sometimes truth hurts...

combine this with the artist acting cool and all that...they just look really foolish. its a totally different matter though if they act cool and all that when speaking their own language...u see wat i mean?

so far, the ony true asian artists with very near passable english is big bang...but that doesn't mean they'll do well in the states though...there's simply too much competition...

theyre getting there, but i'm not sure...
i mean the movies and albums could come out,
but i dont know if they'll get recognition from non Asian-Amercians
maybe a few...but i dont know...
BoA's doing okay, with climbing up the charts
her music is in with the styles of America
and i see some comments about Big Bang making it to America,
if they did, they could...but then again, America isn't big on boybands
hmmmm, this is hard...i wish them all luck
America is pretty tough to beat...

Really... well I'm just sitting in America and never heard of any of their debuts, or seen them on U.S news, radio, or T.V.

I think its a little to early to boast or celebrate. Truthfully, coming from someone who lives in america, they didnt even make dent. Only asians and people who are interested in asian media knows about them(which is a minority).

i don't think Big Bang would do so well... ( i do like their music..but...) i fear no one will be interested cause well.... try to act --what is that word--- ghetto?? gangster-ish?? but their too dressy...as in their style might not match the taste of those here in america...and boy bands aren't that big any more....
Boa... i have not even herd about her...wasn't she suppose to be on MTV or something...?? did anyone watch that?? --shes still not making a dent well she is it's just not big enough... --FIGHTING!!--
Rain.... i think his time and a fame is slowly going down....i do love the guy but... i'm starting to forget i hope his movie Ninja Asassin would be good.. FIGHTING!!!
lucky -Se7en- i hope your MV with Lil Kim goes well .... i hope to see it on MTV or VH1`or something... --FIGHTING!!!--
these asian artist are having it hard...but atleast if they fail they know they tried and can go back to their home base with the many fans who love them
Good luck to all ...

korean wave...hmmm

although i am korean and all, i think thats still far ahead.
all those korean actors/singers you listed did appear in US charts and movies, but
not enough impact or attention to actually start a korean wave or even like an asian wave in hollywood
or in the music industry.

just wait for BIGBANG to come along ><



Haha, agreed. xD
