7) Brown Eyed Girls
You would think with a name like Brown Eyed Girls we would be writing about some Van Morrison tribute band or at the very least a very specific and gross type of Japanese porn, but no. We are talking about B.E.G. the Korean R&B/ballad vocal group. With hits like “L.O.V.E”, “How Come”, and “Abracadabra” B.E.G. has created music magic. Not just with their overuse of abbreviations mind you. EVERY K-POP ARTISTS DOES THAT FOR SOME REASON! But for creating not only a slew of hit songs but for creating the popular “Arrogant dance” a dance move that brought them to the forefront of modern pop culture, Korean and otherwise. This dance was even used in K-pop and internet phenomenon Psy’s hit single “Gentlemen.” Good company to keep considering with his 2 BILLION and still growing Youtube views for “Gangnamstyle” and it’s horse dance he is no stranger to creating worldwide dance crazes. We are pretty jealous since whenever we at Amped Asia try to create a new dance sensation we are told sternly to “Put your pants back on this is a public library!” If you ask us, those librarians are just Philistines.
(The Arrogant Dance is good.. but is still no match for George Takei’s “Happy Dance.” You show ’em how it’s done Georgey boy!”
