With the SNSD’s rapidly growing popularity worldwide, from Asia to South America to North America to Europe, the girls have gotten many foreigners’ interest. In particular, Tyler Brûlé from the UK (United Kingdom), whom is a well-known Canadian-born journalist, editor-in-chief of ‘Monocole’, entrepeneur, magazine publisher, and columnist, recently published about the girls on UK’s ‘Financial Times‘.
On January 7th, his “The Secrets of My Brilliant Korea” column in UK’s ‘Financial Times’ talked about his trip to Seoul, Korea and his analysis of considerable Korean cultural exports. In addition, he included a list of ‘the top 10 Korean cultural contents having a very high possibility of success if they were to be exported out to foreign countries’ in the trendsetter column of the ‘Financial Times’ magazine.
The list was,
1. “A uniform mentality”
2. “The warm sounds of Winterplay and W & Whale”
3. “K is for cruising”
