Sunmi coolly admits BTS, not Wonder Girls', paved the way for K-pop's global popularity

USER CONTENT

Sunmi credited BTS for the increased global popularity of K-pop. 

On March 28, Billboard released an interview with Sunmi, who's currently visiting various cities around the globe for the 'Warning' world tour.

Billboard mentioned Sunmi's start as Wonder Girls and their promotions in the U.S. When asked how things have changed since then, Sunmi said, "I can't believe it. At the time, there was no section of K-pop on Billboard."


Billboard spoke high of Wonder Girls' work in America, and said, "It’s partially because of the groundwork laid by you and Wonder Girls." To this, Sunmi got very honest and said, "No, BTS."

Sunmi's being humble. Wonder Girls may not have "paved" the way. But at least they started a little spark for Kpop's western expansion. And considering how times were so different 10 years ago. Even that little spark is worth mentioning. The amount of people who became kpop fans because of their song "Nobody" is not a joke.
