BIGBANG and 2NE1 featured in UK newspaper ‘The Guardian’

By  | 

UK newspaper, The Guardian, recently released a guide to modern music genres called ‘The A-Z of Pop in 2012’.

In the midst of several peculiar genres of new wave pop, BIGBANG and 2NE1 were featured under the K-pop category.

The description under the category reads, “Korean pop isn’t a new phenomenon, but it’s currently poised to launch a squeaky-clean assault on western tween affections. Frontrunners in this brand of meticulously produced, turbo-charged bubblegum pop include 2NE1 – who’ve been working with Will.i.am – and BigBang, who beat Britney to a European MTV Award last year.”

A sample track list is provided with 25 songs of the 26 categories and can be accessed through Spotify.
