Big Bang in TIME magazine

Post by Xiatistic on Sat Oct 31, 2009 8:33 pm

One of Korea's hottest boy groups, Big Bang, has been featured in TIME magazine. Usually when we report about Korean stars in magazines, they are in the Korean issue, but not this time! The magazine is also known for presenting Rain as one of the "World's Most Influential People," which is also mention in this article. It seems like TIME can't get enough of kpop!

Big Bang was featured on their website as a Korean band that is currently trying to make it into the Japanese music scene. The article is titled, "How to Crack Japan: The Big Bang Theory." How perfect is that? The story talked about how famous kpop stars set their sights on the Japanese market and that out of all the Korean bands that want to make it in Japan, TIME magazine called Big Bang the "most promising."

The author doesn't cease with the compliments towards the quintet group as they go on about the group's "fluid raps and great vocal harmonies" and unique style of hip-hop music.

It seems as though everyone can agree that Big Bang has what it takes to be able to get attention in America. After getting in a big name magazine like TIME, which is a big deal for international artists, the boys just keep on proving themselves capable.

But it seems like the author of that particular article didn't do enough research. Japanese music was never really that popular in Asia so there really is no "follow suit." Does Anyone recall Rain being on MTV? I don't, so I don't know where the author got the "Rain himself has struggled to make an impression in the U.S., despite a ton of MTV appearances and onstage backup from the likes of Omarion and Diddy." Also no mention of TVXQ / Tohoshinki and BoA, whom have already been very successful in Japan?

Regardless of the oversights by the author, Congratulations to Big Bang for cracking into TIME. Check out the article for yourself here!

Thanks to noonachan for the tip!
