All-Star K-Pop Line Up to Visit Australia


Australia is the next continent to get an all-star K-Pop visit.  Ten of K-Pop’s most popular idol groups will participate in the “K-Pop Music Fest,” to be held at the ANZ Stadium in Sydney on Saturday, November 12th.

2AM, 4Minute, BEAST, CN Blue, DBSK, Kara, missA, Secret, SHINee and SNSD are slated to perform for their fans Down Under, as announced by Sydney-and-Melbourne-based media outlet SBS Pop Asia.  The event is in cooperation with JK Entertainment and will be broadcast on Korean TV channel MBC.

Soompi earlier reported the booming popularity of K-Pop in the different continents, including its surge in South America.  Just the past month, idol groups under the management of SM Entertainment staged a two-night successful SMTOWN World Tour Live in Paris.  In August, Incheon will play host to a superstar gathering intended to boost tourism from Japan.  This upcoming event in Australia is a testament to K-Pop’s standing in the growth of Hallyu worldwide.
