I think they stand no chance unless they rrrreally adapted western(american)-style thoroughly but even they achieved this, it will need a long time for these singers/bands to succeed.

They will never make it big. Seriously Korean artists are just a clone of American artists. Boa's debut in America is crap in my opinion. Why the hell would you debut when Britney's comeback is huge right now. American will think Boa as just a wannabe Britney. Se7en? Who the heck cares about him when America already have Justin Timberlake, Chris Brown, Usher, Neyo, & Omarion? Seriously are you guys trying to say that Se7en or even Rain are not the Asian version of the top R&B/Dance Stars of America? No offense but Korean music is American music. It's just R&B in Korean......heck everybody in the world copy America. Also Korean boy bands have a chance of debuting and making it huge in the US? Oh please FYI boy bands are slowly coming back in America but they won't like DBSK or Super Junior BECAUSE THE LIKES OF NLT, V-FACTORY, & VARSITY FANCLUB ARE THE NEW GENERATION OF AMERICAN BOY BANDS. Heck all of them dance and sing better than those Korean boy bands. Seriously if Korean artists want to make it big in America they need to be different from the American artists or else the American fans will just laugh and think they are just wannabes of the current generation of American pop stars.

Justin Timberlake > Rain & Se7en

Rihanna & Beyonce > Boa

NLT > DBSK & Super Junior

America will always be the super power in Entertainment, hate to bring you guys to reality... sorry if I offend anybody but this is just my opinion and the huge population of non-asians opinion.

Must put a lot of efforts first like improving their English. But, sure they can get it.

i dunno.. depends.... i really don't know.... if they have something that will give a last song syndrome to people in the US.. then maybe.. just ,maybe...

To me, certain groups can like Big Bang cause of their Americanized style and good english. Epik High could also make it, if not, Tablo could definitely go solo, his raps would be refreshing to the American market. But the biggest problem is erasing the stereotypical view Americans have towards Asians in general.

actually BoA and rain has already entered the american market...
BoA releasing her album while rain has been starring in various movies...^^

but if the improve their english....then yeah...they can make it..!^^!

i choose the last option.

I reckon they could do ok. Not completely famous and all but at least get known and have some non asian fans as long as their English is understandable. But honestly most of their fans will still be asian and no matter how many asians there are in America, it still can't be more than the non asian population.

How is BoA doing anyway?

slim to none.
Females need to have the sex appeal. We've all seen how they dress, tight short clothing with their boobs hanging out. To tell the truth, Boa does not have any of that. Dress her in tight black leather and she'll still have that cute&good girl appeal to her...
Haven't heard anything about se7en and rain is just a joke.
Just thinking about wonder girls in the us makes me laugh.

I think Utada is doing extremely well she is doing everything she is supposed to
making friends with everyone she meets even Djs because they are the ones that have to play their music and if they dont have a good impression of you they wont play your music

also she didnt piggyback off of other people's fame
