When it comes to K-pop music, the two groups primarily responsible for bringing the foreign genre to prominence in the U.S. music market are easily Wonder Girls and Girls’ Generation (and to an extent Psy). That alone is an accomplishment given the fact K-pop (or any Korean genre of music for that matter) has only been promoted to countries outside of Korea within the last five to six years, as detailed in an exclusive op-ed by the Inquisitr.
Now the newest breed of K-pop groups are making their mark such as Big Bang. Currently, Big Bang is dominating the Korean charts, but that is not the biggest accomplishment they achieved. Reports are coming in that Big Bang officially made their debut on United States charts, specifically the iTunes Top 100.
According to KpopStarz, Big Bang’s song “Bang Bang Bang” made it onto iTunes Top 100 in the United States after the release of their previous two singles, “Bae Bae” and “Loser.” That is a major accomplishment for Big Bang in which the aforementioned song on the iTunes Top 100 currently sits at number one in Korea’s Top 100 singles.
