KpopStarz had the opportunity to speak with Johnny Wright, former manager of boy-band sensations such as N*Sync and the Backstreet Boys. Currently he is working with the Wonder Girls as they get ready for a huge U.S. debut.
Wright shared than an American album is in the works for the Wonder Girls and he hopes to be able to feature their music on radio stations across the nation. If any K-Pop group is able to thrive in the United States music industry, it is the Wonder Girls, who were the first Korean group to break into the billboard charts with their hit single "Nobody" in 2009.
Top music managers such as Wright are catching on to the K-Pop trend, and thanks to the popularity of Psy's "Gangnam Style," K-Pop awareness has grown tremendously, helping lower the cross-cultural music barriers.
During the interview with Wonder Girls, we asked them about their plans for an upcoming U.S. release. The girls stated that the album is going to be unlike anything they have ever produced before. If their single "Like Money" with rapper Akon is any indication, Wonder Girls fans are in for a pleasant surprise.
Speaking of surprises, the girls shared to expect three "never heard before" songs that they will be performing tonight at their concert in NYC - confirming that this is definitely a great time to be a Wonder Girls fan as the girls promise fans new music with a fresh style for the U.S. audience.
To learn more about the Wonder Girls and their upcoming plans, be sure to keep an eye out for KpopStarz interview footage coming soon!
