It hasn't so far.
Will K-pop ever make it in the U.S.?

I hope not. It's music slavery. The performers are "products" that age out and disappear. Everything they do is programmed and produced to the nanosecond. Robotic and chilling.

It's the same with most child/teen performers.

They’re just Asian Menudo.

K-Pop is already popular with schoolkids.
|by Tang*||reply 5||04/14/2019|
It did.....for a few months.
|by Tang*||reply 6||04/14/2019|
There was an attempt.

Apparently K-pop just made its debut on SNL with BTS. Sounds like American music to me, The singers don't even have an accent I can hear.

It's too faceless and derivative to truly become a cultural phenomenon over here. I tried listening to some of it since there was so much hype in online blogs, etc, but all I see and hear is a competent, but conveyor belt copy of North American pop, performed by interchangeable bands, factory designed to appeal to young Asian girls. There isn't even anything particularly "exotic" or Korean about it. Why bother with this if you have the template already in place i.e. disposable American pop music.

My Asian co-worker cannot even tell them apart. The Koreans have too much plastic surgery and all go for similar look.

This is not music, it is trash.

Girly boys. They look like they were made in a laboratory by a mad bisexual pedophile.

Chinese k-popper ‘Victoria’ Song Qian of f(x) makes my heart pound, she’s so gorgeous. I want her to slap me and spit in my mouth.
She’s a classically-trained dancer out of the world-acclaimed Beijing Academy of Dance, so she’s really too good for pop-choreo but she’s beautiful and charismatic so praise be.
Some of the women in other vintage k-pop bands are talented in other areas (I used to have a crush on former model Nana of AFTER-SCHOOL because of her moves) they don’t have Vic’s cool beauty and shine.

I'm surprised Lee Hyori didn't give it a shot.

These bitches probably all look like shit without make up. I remember the videos online...the before and after were horrendous.

The most talented beautiful idols keep mysteriously dying. There's been a wave of deaths over the last few years.
|by Tang*||reply 17||04/14/2019|
And I'm sure a lot of them were suicides.

R14 Nana was a member of Orange Caramel. I like their outfits in the following video.
|by Tang*||reply 19||04/14/2019|
One or two of them probably will. Just a matter of time. But as a music phenom I doubt it. Even euro music doesn't except for a few and far between breakthroughs.

R14/R19 Nana is an attention-getting dancer and she has amazing bone-structure plus endless legs. She’s one of those idols who should have broken out.
Nana totally stole the show in that notorious pole video AfterSchool did for their song ‘Cheossarang’ (‘First Love’).

Lot of pandering to BTS by American popstars rn. Is this gonna be the new normal?

ET Canada: BTS Is The First Band Since The Beatles To Have Three Billboard No. 1 Albums In One Year
K-Pop group BTS is soaring to new heights.
The band that has taken the world by storm has just reached another milestone as the first group since the Beatles to have three No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200 album chart in one year...
“Before BTS, the last traditional group...to log three leaders within such a quick span was the Beatles in 1995-96, when the band’s archival releases ‘Anthology 1,’ ‘Anthology 2’ and ‘Anthology 3’ all debuted at No. 1 in a stretch of 11 months and a week,” Billboard said.
