Now that Psy‘s ‘Gangnam Style’ has blown open the door for K-Pop to go mainstream in the U.S., who might be dancing through that door next? Our money’s on South Korean foursome 2NE1, one of the hottest K-Pop acts in the world.

In fact, they were named Best New Band in the World last year in an online vote by viewers of MTV Iggy. The girls have performed live with the Black Eyed Peas, scored multiple Top 10 hits on Billboard’s K-Pop Hot 100, and played their first American concerts last year.

What does their music sound like? It’s poppy, colorful and upbeat, like their K-Pop No. 1 single ‘I Love You’ and the catchy ‘I Am the Best.’ They’ve even released English versions of some of their songs for those of us who are hopelessly monolingual.

  1. 2NE1 JJANG!

  2. Tell that to YG… Sigh. Seriously YG……

    Anyways, we blackjacks cant do nothing but just wait for the day 2ne1 is coming back -____-

    Sorry im being such an emotional blackjack. Its just that i feel so depressed seeing the promotions on the new group for so long yet for last year’s 2NE1 “COMEBACK” with one freaking song there was so LITTLE effort on YG side -________-

  3. My bet and prayers are for 2NE1 too. Rarely do you find artists that you like ALL the tracks in their albums and I love ALL their songs. Just like Psy’s Gangnam Style, 2NE1’s music has universal appeal and moves you almost as soon as you hear it….just ask my American patients (they are sisters) who found 2NE1 surfing YT and now are great fans…and we’re in a small city in Georgia!
