The Popdust Files: big bang, boy bands

Over the first half of 2012, we’ve more than documented the extent to which the crush-producing, squeal-inducing boy band genre is back on the music market, and Big Bang’s dominance in our own Pop-Off competition is no exception. The Seoul-based quintet crushed its Week One competitor (Katy Perry) with 2.2 million votes, and has another victory on the horizon (but there’s still time, Far*East Movement—voting ends on Sunday!). The group boasts a fervent fan base and award-winning hairstyles, making them ripe for a full-blown takeover in the States. In addition to praise here on the ‘dust, Big Bang has amassed more than a few #1s in South Korea and Japan over the course of two studio albums, with a rising place on the Billboard Social 50 chart and an upcoming LP out later this year.

If you’re still deciding between One Direction and The Wanted, or have had your day turned upside down by the 98 Degrees reunion news, we’d advise you to hold off on declaring your eternal allegiance until you’ve run through our list of why Seungri, G-Dragon, Taeyang, T.O.P and Daesung will be the next prevailing cosmological model large musical explosion to hit the U.S.
