because americans are too spoiled and at large aren't checking for anything either out of their preferred genre or in other languages foreign acts will be longshots more often than not. It would be great if it started a k-wave, but I doubt it.

If anything, it indoctrinated a few newbies into the world of k-music and those who are most interested will stick with it. Everyone has a gateway song (mine was j-pop, 'lonely in gorgeous', before WG & 'So Hot' came along) and 2NE1 or Psy are perfectly nice places to start.

OMG TommyFebruary6! Lonely in Gorgeous was such a great song~you're taking me back lol. My first J-Pop song was w-inds. "pieces" followed by Ayumi Hamasaki's "appears." My intro to k-pop was big bang's "dirty cash" and battle's "luv u."

....yeah, overshare lol.

Probably because they could use the clip with Kris talking in English.

I love them EXO babies, but LOL why are they here?

All I see is Kris is speaking English and being flawless. /biasedforever

That would be why he was there. I'm actually kind of shocked that the various kyopo idols don't get roped into talking in English more than they do. It took me an embarrassingly long time to realize that SNSD had two girls from LA.

Not gonna happen, please stop! learn from BoA and the Wonder Gors, Psy was a one time viral hit.

This shit is boring - almost all of these have to be well-paid PR statements. Almost all the music magazines within the past year are seriously making my eyerolls with this.

Korea, stop trying to make Hallyu happen =/

They're not paid if they don't mention that they're sponsored content. More likely everyone and their sister label are sending out press releases and it was a slow day at Fuse so they threw something together.

When it comes to the magazine write ups, do you seriously think that being paid is the only reason a music journalist would write about K-Pop? They have to write a minimum of words per issue if they want to keep their jobs, and American music is fairly awful at the moment. There's a much greater depth of musical influences in K-Pop, and it's something that is new and different if you're not already down the rabbit hole.
