While the videos and songs are in Korean and have a HUGE fanbase in  Korea, these two men (they aren’t kids) speak fluent English who have lived in the US for large chunks of time (one was born in Georgia!).  They have been educated in the US and their music is making a big impact on the substantial Korean population in the US.




Korean superstar Hip Hop artists, Mad Clown & San E, have announced their highly anticipated, We Want You North American tour that began in Atlanta.
The 20 plus date tour will be one of the most extensive K-pop tours since Wonder Girls came to the US.

They will be touring in major cities such as Toronto, Chicago, NY, LA ending in North Carolina in early May.

I really like what I saw & heard in the videos. San E and Mad Clown have a synergistic approach when working together and yet their music is soooooooo good when heard as solo works. I love their sounds.. and  their videos are interesting presentations of their stage personalities.
NB:  Wonder how long before they hit the Coachella Circuit? That would be amazing

They are playing
