In an earlier post, I wrote about how k-pop bands are starting to edge into the American market. Well, it seems like “Popdust”, an American website dedicated to giving the latest news and music-centric analyses of pop culture, has picked up on this in their latest edition of “Pop-off”, a poll in which voters choose “this week’s most awesome new track”.

It seems as if the current trend in k-pop involves attempting to break into the American music market. Now Korean pop, originally only popular in Asia, has been making its way around the world the past few years thanks to promotion from the fans on sites like Youtube, Facebook, Tumblr, and fan pages. Recently, k-pop bands have worked with American producers and choreographers and hosted concerts in countries outside of Asia, and now the major labels are actually having their bands debut in the U.S.
