Just as we predicted
, K-pop is a global phenomenon that has continued to skyrocket in popularity over the past few years. Since we last introduced you to Big Bang, 2ne1, Girls' Generation, and SHINee, these groups have have toured all over the world, collaborated with the likes of Missy Elliott, The Black Eyed Peas, and Snoop Dogg, and can count megastars Lady Gaga, Pharrell, and Kanye West as some of their biggest fans. Not too shabby if you ask us.
Now, we’ve got the lowdown on four more acts you’re sure to become obsessed
with. What’s special about these groups isn’t just their killer style or killer beats. Most of them also have a roster of multicultural members, a testament to the truly global nature of K-pop and how it connects people across countries, cultures, and languages. Behold: B.A.P, EXO, f(x), and Miss A are about to shake up your playlist (and your wardrobe) in a serious way.
