It’s pretty obvious that such k-pop artists that already created strong fan bases in Japan would make it such as BoA, DBSK, Super Junior and Big Bang. However, the other results and winners are quite surprising, aren’t they? Who would have thought that newcomers would already break into Japanese music so soon. It just proves how much k-pop is becoming more popular all around the globe.
