It seems to be a dream of Korean entertainers to “make it” in the USA. Even after finding success in Korea, it seems that every Korean pop star who has “made it” wants to conquer the entertainment world in the states. Sure, some like Rain have received some recognition, making the “100 Most Beautiful People” list back in 2007 and being written up – albeit with the wrong person’s photo — for being in Speed Racer. And with Daniel Henney having a role in the much anticipated movie, Wolverine, Korean stars are getting more exposure than they have in a while.
People Magazine’s April 20th issue will be giving exposure to three K-Pop stars — Se7en, BoA and Wondergirls — who want so very much to strike it big in America’s entertainment world. Even well-known celebrity gossip blogger Perez Hilton has been enjoying a ride on the K-Pop train and has posted about several of Korea’s very own like Wondergirls and the female Big Bang, 2NE1.
As excited as I am that these K Pop stars are getting much desired exposure here in the states, I can’t help but be skeptical about their likelihood of “making it big.” But I do wish them all the best in achieving their dream, no matter how hard it may be.
