(Article) What Impression Did the 2NE1 Concert Leave Americans with?

As K-Pop begins to spread worldwide, the biggest question so far is, how will Americans perceive K-Pop.

It’s true that the American music industry is possibly the most intimidating and the most difficult to approach and get into. Despite the fact that 2NE1 is such a big girl group and one of the key bands that represent the new K-Pop wave, they are barely known to anyone inside the US.

Sebagai yang memulai menyebarkan K-pop di seluruh dunia, pertanyaan terbesar sejauh ini adalah, bagaimana orang Amerika melihat K-Pop.

Memang benar bahwa industri musik Amerika mungkin yang paling menakutkan dan paling sulit untuk didekati dan dimasuki. Terlepas dari kenyataan bahwa 2NE1 adalah suatu kelompok gadis besar dan salah satu band utama yang merupakan gerasi baru gelombang K-pop, mereka hampir diketahui siapa pun di AS.

However, it’s just the beginning of their journey into the US so it’s a little early to be despondent over the fact that their fame isn’t as big in the US.

Then how do Americans generally perceive K-POP?

It seems that 2NE1 succeeded in leaving an impression with their concert in Newark on Friday.

At 5PM EDT, in front of Prudential Center, there was a flashmob. An organization called 100%KG (K-Pop Generation) organized an event that involved 50 people, who proceeded to perfectly recreate 2NE1′s hit singles and their dances. All the by passers stopped to look at the scene and take pictures.

The fans were lined up hours before the concert, the line going up to about 200 meters around the stadium. The people walking by were curious and asked what kind of event was being held at the Prudential Center.

Namun, itu hanyalah awal dari perjalanan mereka ke AS jadi sedikit lebih awal untuk putus asa atas kenyataan bahwa ketenaran mereka tidak sebesar di Amerika Serikat.

Lalu bagaimana orang Amerika pada umumnya menanggapi K-POP?

Tampaknya 2NE1 berhasil meninggalkan kesan dengan konser mereka di Newark, hari Jumat.

Pada 05:00 EDT, di depan Prudential Center, ada sebuah flashmob. Suatu organisasi disebut 100% KG (Generasi K-pop) mengorganisir sebuah acara yang melibatkan 50 orang, yang dilanjutkan dengan sempurna karena menciptakan hit single 2NE1 dan tarian mereka. Semua pejalan kaki berhenti untuk melihat di tempat kejadian dan mengambil gambar.

Para penggemar berbaris sebelum konser dimulai, garis naik sampai sekitar 200 meter di sekitar stadion. Orang-orang berjalan dengan merasa heran dan bertanya seperti apa acara yang diadakan di Pusat Prudential.

For the fans that were already completely crowding the streets around the venue, New Jersey Police blocked off a whole block of traffic so that the fans could move freely.

A New Jersey resident named Christian confessed to having been a fan of 2NE1 since three years ago. “2NE1′s music and characteristics cannot be found in anyone in the US.” He expressed sentiments that were saying that 2NE1 is something unique and something that the American market is lacking.

So would the residents in New Jersey be taking notice? We hope that the concert sparked the K-pop wave across America.

Untuk para penggemar yang sudah benar-benar memadati jalan-jalan di sekitar tempat tersebut, Polisi New Jersey memblokir seluruh blok lalu lintas sehingga para penggemar bisa bergerak bebas.

Seorang warga New Jersey bernama Kristen mengakui telah menjadi penggemar 2NE1 sejak tiga tahun lalu. “Musik 2NE1 dan karakteristiknya tidak dapat ditemukan pada siapa pun di AS.” Dia menyatakan sentimen yang mengatakan bahwa 2NE1 adalah sesuatu yang unik dan sesuatu yang kurang ada di pasar Amerika.

Jadi penduduk di New Jersey akan memperhatikan? Kami berharap bahwa konser ini memicu gelombang K-pop di seluruh Amerika.
