Korean pop the next big thing (in Australia)?



The five-piece Korean boy group, Big Bang, have shocked music industry experts by landing a top 10 album on US iTunes.

Korean pop – or K-Pop as it’s now commonly referred to – has become one of the hottest genres in music with articles about the growing phenomenon appearing in Billboard magazine and MTV online.

This has led to a number of K-Pop acts trying their luck in America – from Wonder Girls to BoA – but so far with little success.

That is until the release of Big Bang’s latest mini-album Tonight.

It becomes the first K-Pop album to reach the top 10 on US iTunes and is the only non-English language album in the top 100.

If the genre’s popularity keeps growing at this rate, it’s only a matter of time until the K-Pop wave reaches Australia.
