All American K-Pop group EXP Edition shocked all the viewers with their incredible performance of Super Junior's ''U'' on 'I Can See Your Voice 4'.

On the show, the panelists must guess if contestants are talented singers or tone-deaf based on clues. During the April 20 broadcast, EXP Edition made an appearance. The panelists had to find out if they're an all-American K-Pop group from New York that's preparing for debut or just a cover dance group. 

Following a long discussion, EXP Edition finally unveils their identity by performing the hit track by Super Junior. The 4 members proved to be a talented rookie K-Pop group as they perfected the performance.

kpop is not just about looks and the part about being-able to sing in korean language. Its about training hours a day, perfecting an album, taking care of fans and fandom, matching up to their taste. its about talent, indulging in the music, being able to make people jump, or sing along, or nod, or bop their heads or even cry when the verses of the song were sang.  its about making people happy! Its to prove that language isn't a barrier in music! Its not about being popular! YOU f ing GAIN for your popularity, you EARN it! Kpop Fans turn their heads towards you when you perform because they see passion in your eyes. They cheer for you on stage because they know how much you worked for it. They cry in your concerts because they felt that you deserve to even held one. they can see your pain, your hardwork, your sleepless nights, your energy vanish in the matter of seconds even before it was completely replenished. They know you deserve their love and care when they see you. Those popular groups, Big Bang, 2NE1, BTS, EXO, SNSD, do you think they manage to stand and be known as to where they are now? Didn't you ever wonder how they even managed to get the people who supported them still bringing their name up to this day even when they are not promoting? Haven't you realize how big of a space they took up in the hearts of the fans? don't you know the fans are the one who they treasure the most, and how hard it is to even get one to turn their attention to them if they have nothing to offer. you have to be devoted more than just enough to do kpop, because thats how devoted kpop fans are. once you gain their love, they are yours to keep.

Loved it. I was so obsessed with "U" and it was one of the handful kpop songs that really got me hooked and sucked into the kpop genre. Anyways. Im going to go and re-listen to some Super junior

onomo Friday, April 21, 2017

I know people are going to disagree with me, but I would prefer if there were only asians in kpop tbh(including half-asians like Vernon). It just doesn't....'look' or 'feel' right seeing them in kpop(doesn't make sense since Vernon doesn't really look Asian...but he is lol). Idk

LisannaMint Friday, April 21, 2017

Okay, since people can't seem to get it straight, I'll put it this way: Germans, Italians, and other Europeans who look white and can speak English well are readily accepted as celebrities in the US. But Asians aren't quite as so, because we aren't frickin' white, nor do we look close to it. So, as you can see, in the predominantly white Hollywood, there's little Asian presence. Same with these guys in Korea. Sure, Thai, Japanese, Chinese, and other Asians are considered foreigners in Korea, just like these EXP guys, but they're Asian and thus, many of them look eerily similar to Koreans. Interesting, huh? Never would've expected that, right. But these EXP dudes... are westerners. They look nothing like Koreans. Why wont they be so readily accepted in a Korean industry? Thus my aforementioned argument stands. No, this isn't racist as some of you severely sensitive millennial will state because it's fact: White people and Asians don't look alike. Saying it would be racist if Korea doesn't accept them is unfair on Koreans' part because their population is homogenous compared to the US's... I'm talking about the US with a significant Asian population, yet with little representation in Hollywood for the demographic in question. Also, stop it with the "Koreans like them more than you koreaboos do" claims. All of you asserting this are Westerners, non-Asian ones at that, who've never lived in Korea. Using that argument is invalid because you genuinely don't know how Korea feels towards this group, besides the reactions displayed in the show, which don't serve as credible sources.

Whoooo LisannaMint Saturday, April 22, 2017

so true and how do they know that people who dont like them are koreaboos? Why would koreaboos hate exp? They should love exp since exp is basically like them. People who hate exp would be us asian americans and asians who are tired of whitewashing or just dont see how they can make it in the industry.

revenantsoulx3 LisannaMint Monday, April 24, 2017

I just base it off of what I've seen. As an example, just recently I watched a video of Japanese people reacting to Scarlett Johansson playing Major in GitS. While Americans were up in a roar due to Whitewashing, Japanese people seemed genuinely okay with it, even saying that she was a great fit for the role, because the way anime is drawn is exaggerated and they don't actually look Japanese. Literally what they said. Of course people who live in diverse places have more of a problem with Whitewashing. Everyone wants to be represented in the place they live, and it's a major problem that Asians are barely represented. People who like K-Pop may like K-Pop because of that difference. Maybe they like that its Asian and a different culture and scene. Maybe they don't want to see non-Asians break into the industry. It's all speculation, but it makes sense to me at least based off what I've seen/read. I'm not saying that I'm correct and what I say is fact, but merely that given observation it is what I hypothesize.

LisannaMint revenantsoulx3 Monday, April 24, 2017

Sorry I'm actually not that passionate about this issue, but people were constantly accusing and generalizing everyone who were against this group as "koreaboos", and using the term derogatively at that. I'm fine with people having differing opinions from me, but the prevalent assumptions and accusations of people that didn't feel inclined towards this group as merely racist and thus "obessive white Kpop fans" was extremely obnoxious, so I attempted to draw out the assertion most people offered.

revenantsoulx3 LisannaMint Tuesday, April 25, 2017

No worries! Yeah I don't have a problem with different opinions, I just wanted to explain why I had mine.

beashineeshawol Friday, April 21, 2017

Lol is this a Suju reunion show or are they all usually regulars? I'm actually pleasantly surprised by EXP Edition. I have to admit I was a nay sayer but they did really well here and with my favorite Suju song to boot!

Vipmultifandom10 beashineeshawol Friday, April 21, 2017

well leeteuk and shindong are regulars, yesubg anf heechul were guests for this ep

Why is it any non asian groups fault that asians don't recognized in america?

LisannaMint Im_you_pantseu Friday, April 21, 2017

No one ever blamed fault on them for the underrepresentation of Asians in the American celebrity scheme. Here's the argument drawn out for you: Imagine if a full Asian group with members who spoke rough English saturated with accents mimicked American singers and stated they were going to release an English song in the US and become a full out boy band here. The few people who gave the slightest bit of attention to them would mock them and they'd soon be abandoned as wannabes - Asians wanting to be white. But I guess, since these people are westerners and westerners are oh so cool, that they should be accepted because why shouldn't they be? They're white. Why reject them? And then people are expecting them to be accepted as if Korea were just as a diverse country like the US.

Im_you_pantseu LisannaMint Friday, April 21, 2017

How is this group mocking asians? This group doesn't seem to have any bad intentions.

hexrealm Im_you_pantseu Saturday, April 22, 2017

He didn't say this group is mocking asians, he said mimicking asians.

LisannaMint Im_you_pantseu Saturday, April 22, 2017

Sorry I'm really bad at explaining. No, people aren't accusing them of mocking. In fact, it's the complete opposite. However, people don't particularly like them because they're attempting to penetrate an Asian market. Westeners are trying to participate in a full out Asian thing, despite the fact that Asians have yet to grabbed a significant foothold of their own in Hollywood, even though the US population is diverse (aka a ton of Asian people live here) compared to that of Asian countries (aka the population is composed basically only of Asians).

Im_you_pantseu LisannaMint Saturday, April 22, 2017

Oh okay, I'm just not okay with the hate this groups get

Whoooo Im_you_pantseu Saturday, April 22, 2017

They kind of brought it upon their selfs. With all the tension of white washing in America shouldn't it have been obvious that they shouldn't do this considering that a large group of kpop fans is Asian Americans? Most of this hating is coming from the fact that all of this feels like whitewashing and that's what we have been trying to escape from and also they have not trained harder then most trainees who often spend more than 3 years trying to debut and the fact that they can just barge in like this just because they are the first foreign group is disrespectful to trainees.

Im_you_pantseu Whoooo Sunday, April 23, 2017

But like i said it's not there fault that whitewashing happens. Also this is showbiz not everyone makes it, it doesn't make how long anyone trains because if your company thinks your not marketable they will not debut you regardless. Thats how the entertainment industry works its not always fair.

hexrealm Im_you_pantseu Sunday, April 23, 2017

They are part of the white washing now so of course they are partly to be blamed. The thing is EXP is project to see how people will react to a all white K-pop group, so marketable is not the concern at for them. And why should people like them? Besides being white and their bad korean, how are they better than any of the korean boy group out there.

Kang_Saena hexrealm Sunday, April 23, 2017

They're better because they're American. Everyone loves it when Americans join in on conversations they weren't initially part of, because America always does that with everything, so might as well let them get their way with Kpop too, right? Jk. But it more has to do with Koreaboos (by that, I mean obsessive non-Asian fans; I label their Asian counterparts as sasaengs) wanting a clear signal that they will be able to join Kpop. If this group somehow succeeds, it'll just trigger an enormous wave of koreaboos lining up at auditions (even larger than the amount that exists as of now), attempting to get into the industry, knowing that they'll have a significantly higher chance of getting accepted. Saying that this group wont ever succeed is like saying those koreaboos will never be able to become Kpop idols, which makes them very upset. :(

Whoooo Im_you_pantseu Sunday, April 23, 2017

they are only getting all this attention because they are the first "foreign K-pop group' If they were a regular K-pop group no one care about them. And they are part of the problem now because whitewashing is when a white person tries to be asian as their solgan says Born in NY made in Korea.

Im_you_pantseu Whoooo Monday, April 24, 2017

Whitewashing is a casting practice in the film industry of the United States in which white actors are cast in historically non-white character roles. The film industry has a history of frequently casting white actors for roles involving people of color, including African Americans, Asians, Hispanics, and any other Non-white, non-Hispanic culture, including Native Americans. The practice started at the beginning of the film industry, which was based in New York and New Jersey.

ThinkCarefully Friday, April 21, 2017

Asians are screwed. Getting whitewashed everywhere you go. Then comes the identity crisis. Have fun getting labelled and portrayed as the "Geek", "Nerd", "Awkward Outcast", "Kungfu Maniac" and get hurled racial insults. Why? Cause Hollywood refuses to represent Asians properly in their movies and films. And now, they are coming into Kpop. Good luck.

revenantsoulx3 Friday, April 21, 2017

Pleasantly surprised. And good on them for promoting and going on shows and speaking comfortably in Korean! Still a bit awkward with facial expressions, but definitely have potential. I think if they can nail their own style that feels natural it will make a huge difference. For non-Korean and non-Asian K-Pop groups, if they genuinely like K-Pop and try just as hard as those in the industry do, then I think they can be accepted by people outside South Korea (lets face it, we have more of a problem with it than the South Koreans do). It's one thing to be a fan and want to be in the industry, it's another thing to persevere through hardships and never stop trying, to engage in the industry, to prove that they are meant to be there and are in it for the long run, and to keep training to become better. Can't just appear and be like "we're K-Pop", you really have to engage and immerse in the industry and culture, and it seems like these guys are trying. [END]my opinion[/END]

CCJ revenantsoulx3 Friday, April 21, 2017

This is a great comment! I've seen so much hate for them.. and this makes me happy... thanks!! :) I agree!! hope to see them succeed and work hard in the industry!

LisannaMint CCJ Friday, April 21, 2017

I haven't seen much hate on them in the comments. Just because people don't prefer this group doesn't mean they're hating. You shouldn't automatically assume people who don't adhere to this type of group are doing it due to racism and thus have a purely malicious attitude towards them.

revenantsoulx3 LisannaMint Monday, April 24, 2017

I have seen a lot of hate on YouTube and on previous AKP articles, so I'm not assuming. If you even look at the comment above yours that person also has seen a lot of hate. I also said nothing about racism or about "hate". I merely said that fans outside of Korea seem to have a larger problem with non-Koreans trying to be in K-Pop. It's based on what I have seen, and the reactions to the South Koreans on the show vs the reactions on YouTube and other articles.

LisannaMint revenantsoulx3 Monday, April 24, 2017

I can see your point. To be frank, I believe using reactions displayed on a single episode of a show aren't credible sources to base your argument that "fans outside of Korea seem to have a larger problem with this issue". Basically, using what you've seen through shows won't provide any solid evidence as people often have to mask their true opinions or even form ones they don't share when what they're going to say is going to be recorded permanently. I also feel that the above claim is invalid if you haven't lived in Korea long enough to observe it actively occurring. Also, sorry that my initial comment was aggressive lol it was stated in the heat of the moment.

revenantsoulx3 LisannaMint Tuesday, April 25, 2017

No worries. I agree one show isn't a lot to go on, but usually when this happens I never hear about the K-netizens getting upset, I only ever see articles like AKP writing about YouTube comments in English.

nurhan_suju Friday, April 21, 2017

Laylay_99 Friday, April 21, 2017
