Interview: EPIK HIGH

Client: PAPER.


The Hallyu [Korean pop music] wave was always predicted to sweep America. And though some groups have found varying degrees of success in the USA, the explosion never really happened. Could Korean hip-hop be one to really break through barriers?

TABLO: I actually don’t know. Personally for me, I am speculative of any wave. It’s really up to the individual who rides the wave. Trying to group all these musicians as one wave, just by the fact that they’re Korean…it’s too much of a burden because it’s a given that anyone who rides this wave has to succeed. I think the focus should be more on the individual. Even though I may have a foot in the wave, I’m not really aware of it. I never thought it was bigger than each individual.
