U-KISS begins preparations for U.S. debut

Boy group U-KISS is planning on entering the U.S. music market, and have already kicked off preparations for their debut.

According to information revealed by their agency, NH Media, on January 11th, the agency will be utilizing the members’ different cultural backgrounds and language skills as the base for their debut in the States.

Representatives revealed, “We’ve already listened to about 100 new songs for their new album. The songs chosen will be group ballads, a genre which hasn’t been featured in U-KISS’s albums. Our production team in the States, “I PED,” has already prepared choreography videos.”

They continued, “We’re currently discussing how we’ll be bringing the boys over, since they have various schedules to still complete in Korea. We’ll be balancing it with the group’s Korean comeback.”

Their album will be completed by February.

Are Kpop artists not happy singing in Korea or something 0_o I don't even want to imagine the problems that this group is going to go through, but I can think of a few from the top of my head already.

Ahh~~~*screams* Are you SERIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG :lol: I totally can't wait!!!!!! Even as a total Kiss Me, "Oh ye of little faith!" Even if other K-pop stars attempted and failed (Not saying tht BoA failed or anything--she just needed more promotion), U-KISS might actually succeed. I have faith in U-Kiss. When Soohyun said that they were preparing for their new album, I thought they meant Korean or possibly Japanese! This is so~ awesome. Maybe thts why they released a best album in Japan with a concert. It all makes sense now~ OMG I'm totally hyped up now. 2011 fo show will be the best year ever!!!!!!!! CSJH, DBSK (2/5), Big Bang, Co-ed, U-KISS, MBLAQ, Hyolee etc. comebacks, BoA US promotions <_< and U-Kiss in the US and KR comeback! Amazing.. TY for sharing! I'm sure they'll do fine!

Shame they're gona flop.
It's just how it is. BoA didn't make it far, Wonder Girls had some little success, etc.

Plus the way some of them talk in english, people may be stereotypical about it.
Not bashing them or whatnot, just giving out the view of someone who may not know them and sees them for the first time i guess?

But yeh, they really should try and stabalise their fanbase in Korea first.
wish them good luck though.

They should really build their fan base in Korea first
Why are they making a hurry to debut in US? I doubt they will succeed
Moreover with a group name like that? U-Kiss, Americans won't buy that.
Good luck to them anyways.

BoA didn't "fail," at least not yet, and hopefully won't.

BoA is still in the process of breakthing through.

BoA in America is considered a fail once she stopps releasing albums there.

Hollywood movie for 2011 and rumoured USA album for Summer 2011.

Hmmk later thanks bye ~

Oh and good luck to U-KISS (>_>) ~

they probably aren't happy singing in Korea because korean artists make no money. lol

But...really -__- U-kiss in the US. yeah....no. Do korean people not know that girl/boy groups are not as popular in the US as they used to be? In all honesty I don't even really consider them to be all that talented and do you know how many times I've heard people bag on their appearance and call them "gay" or "girly"? Even if they try to change their image I don't think that Americans will accept them. It will take them a lot of time and some SERIOUS dedication...

I see this going horribly wrong, Americans don't want boy bands, and to be honest they'll be judged on there appearance and they don't come off as straight from that.. O.o

Are they even signed under a major American label? If they aren't then they have no shot in the USA.

Well even it's old, they won't debut in USA.
They have already debuted in Japan and doing there great.
