American weekly magazine ‘Time’ wrote an article introducing Korean idol group Big Bang.

The article was posted up on Time Magazine’s website on 29th October. In the article,Big Bang was introduced as one of the most promising singer groups in Korea and their journey to advancing into the Japanese music market.

A part of the article goes:

The vocalist Rain — among the TIME 100 in 2006 — remains the international face of K-pop, but a host of other artists are eager to follow in his wake….

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. That leaves Japan as the prime foreign market for the talented, preening young acts that South Korea produces by the score.

The most promising of these is Big Bang, a domestically successful five-man hip-hop group formed through a Making the Band – style reality show in 2006.

And also:

Tracks like “My Heaven” (a collaboration with top Japanese DJ Daishi Dance) and “Love Club” have plenty of dance-floor appeal. As for swoon factor, well, their track “Let Me Hear Your Voice” has been selected as the theme for the new Tokyo Broadcasting System romantic comedyOhitorisama. If your work is popping up on Friday-night prime-time drama, total domination can’t be that far behind.
