This week we focus on the sudden appearance of Heart2Heart, an American boyband that seems to be heavily influenced by K-Pop. The joint production of Lance Bass of N*SYNC and David Lehre (Chad Future, the group’s producer and leader), they are set to debut, and International Kpop fans are not pleased. They see this group as a mockery of their precious genre instead of flattery, forgetting it seems, that Boybands got their start in the West, and even though Korea has continued the trend beyond its natural expiration date, everything in music is a cycle.
