Why do Korean Pop groups have so many members?

From an American viewpoint, most, (my opinion), U.S. singing groups have at least 5 {five} members or less.  With too many members in these K-Pop groups, it’s not easy to care for anyone.  I can learn the names of the members of F(x) for example (they have 5 members).  K-Pop groups like Super Junior (13 members) or Girls Generation (9 members) have too many members to connect to.  It doesn’t mean I hate them; just too many members that get lost in the group line up.

Then there is another K-Pop group, T-ara, that will be adding 2 {two} new members to become a 9 member singing group.  K pop-ulation explosion!
