Many K-pop acts have tried to play their hand in the U.S. market, all to varying levels of success. Girl group SPICA, however, may be one of those to catch on here in the States, as they got a running start with their American debut at KCON 2014 this past weekend.
KoreAm had the opportunity to interview the ladies before their set on Saturday. The group, which features Juhyun, Boa, Narae, Jiwon and Bohyung, were just as excited as we were to see them hit the stage for the thousands of fans who made their way out to Los Angeles this past weekend.
SPICA’s English debut single, “I Did It,” is an empowering song that fits their vocal talent and nothing-held-back personalities. In our exclusive interview, the ladies talk about what they’re proud of so far, and what they’re looking forward to as a group. Check it out!

SPICA debuted in 2012 under B2M Entertainment with their single “Potently.” Since then, SPICA has released four singles, including “Tonight,” which shot to the top of Korean music charts. Former Fin.K.L member Lee Hyori served as a mentor figure for a time, and she collaborated with Boa to write the lyrics for “Tonight.”
“I Did It” is just one of the tracks on a yet-to-be named, full length English LP. We’ll keep you posted on any news. Meanwhile, check out the music videos for “I Did It” and “Tonight.”
