Korean Pop has made a huge impact in the states throughout the past few years and we can thank groups like BTS, BLACKPINK and more for paving the way. They have opened the door for other groups in the industry but what will happen when these groups stop making music or grow out of their younger audience? A new upcoming girl group, ITZY, is making their way to the top step by step and could eventually take over America in the next couple of years.
Korean Pop was first noticed in the U.S. in 2012 when Psy’s “Gangnam Style” became the first video on YouTube to have a billion streams. When it was released it was something new and unfamiliar to us. Over the past decade, Korean Pop has become more well-known with many groups touring in America. After almost three years since their debut, BlackPink will finally step foot on American soil for the first time.
