The ‘twerking girl group’ is set to debut August 8th!

If you’ve been reading Korean music news portals you’ve heard of the girl group that will be taking on a twerking concept. Well, it seems like the girls are ready to spice Kpop up a bit with their debut single Wassup! In the video you don’t really see too much twerking, perhaps to keep things light until the full release drops, but the girls definitely are sporting a different image. Funky clothing, tanned skin and an urban MV set. I’m a bit confused about what their goal is… I’m not sure if WASSUP is an idol group or not. I know they’re probably debuting as such but how will Korea react to a twerking girl group, and seeing as their supposed to be role models I don’t know how something so overtly sexual will fly in a very reserved culture. International fans are already against it (I mean look at the likes/dislikes on the video). If this does backfire I feel really bad for the girls because it’s not like they’re the ones to pick the concept, yet they’ll be the ones to receive the hate. Let’s just hope everything works out- who knows, maybe the backlash will have the girls change their image? I’ll end by saying that I am looking forward to their Dancehall inspired music. That should be a fresh change to the scene, and their debut song sounds really exciting!
