Some of the biggest names in K-Pop are coming together for MTV's  "Homecoming". The three artists -- Jay Park, Tiffany Young, and Amber Liu -- are American-born K-Pop idols who found enormous success in Korea. Now, they're setting upon another journey -- making music in the United States.

 

"I felt very motivated to release some things in English because I wanna represent my community," Amber states in the one minute trailer. She refers to her move from K-Pop to English music.  Most recently the idol collaborated with former Royal Pirates member James Lee on the song "Perfect," and prior to that she released "Countdown". But her transition towards English songs doesn't mean she's leaving Korean music behind forever. Just last year, she released the STATION project song "Lower" with LUNA. 

 

Amber isn't the only one ready to represent. Jay Park, former member of 2PM and CEO of hip-hop labels AOMG and H1GHER Music, talks about Asian representation in the short trailer. "You don't see a lot of Asian people just in like, mainstream media in general. You know, I enjoy the challenge. I like making what seems impossible, possible," he comments.  And he did make the seemingly impossible, possible. Last year, he was signed to Jay Z's label Roc Nation, home to artists like Rihanna, Kanye West, Alicia Keys, and J.Cole, as its first ever Asian artist. 


Finally, on our list of stars is Tiffany Young. Born and raised in California, the idol went to pursue her dreams in South Korea at the age of fifteen. Two years later, she joined one of the most popular K-Pop girl groups in the world. Now, fourteen years after she left her home, the singer is making a comeback. "Your new artist moments? Those come once in a lifetime, and the fact that I get to experience this again!," she exclaims in the trailer. Since returning to the United States, the artist has released various singles, including "Over My Skin" and "Teach You".
