Psy moved K-pop into a higher gear, galloping across the world with the hit song “Gangnam Style”, while boy bands continued to make headlines by holding worldwide concerts and attracting massive audiences.

Wonder Girls, of JYP Entertainment, strategically entered the U.S. market in 2009 as an opening act for The Jonas Brothers” World Tour before becoming the first K-pop group to enter the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Another popular group, Kara of DSP Media, also garnered immense popularity in Japan, ranking as “Japan”s No. 1 Rookie Artist of 2010″ by Oricon, the biggest chart in the nation, as soon as they entered the Japanese music market in 2010, four years after forming.

The nine members inched into the music scene in Japan in late 2010, releasing numerous songs in Japanese, and their debut Japanese album “Girls” Generation” became the highest selling album in Oricon”s history for a K-pop group in 2011. ...
