The two K-Pop groups, BigBang and 2NE1 were listed in MTV Style‘s list of ‘Best Band Style of 2012‘.
MTV explained why they chose 2NE1, stating, “K-Pop had a GIGANTIC year in 2012, partly because of ‘Gangnam Style’ and partly because the genre is CHOCK FULL of boy bands and girl groups. MTV Style has a soft spot for 2NE1 thanks to their propensity for all things bold and colorful and their enviable closeness with Jeremy Scott.” They also praised BigBang‘s unique style as they say “Speaking of bold and colorful… We are OBSESSED with Big Bang. The K-Pop boy band is a five-dude unit of unbridled energy, hyper-saturated streetwear, tonsorial risk-taking, and uhh, they wear MINX NAILS SOMETIMES. *faints*”
2NE1 and Bigbang were the only K-Pop groups included in the list, along with top artists in the U.S. like One Direction, The Wanted, Backstreet Boys, Spice Girls, Destiny’s Child, Fun, HAIM, and No Doubt.
BigBang also gained much attention on MTV with their distinctive style. G-Dragon and T.O.P also received compliments for their Minx Nails and BigBang’s ‘Blue’ and ‘Bad Boy’ have also garnered the spotlight last September.
