SNSD‘s Tiffany recently spoke about her thoughts on the Hallyu wave as a growing global phenomenon in an interview with History Asia. She highlights the critical role of the Internet for delivering access to K-Pop outside out Asia, which has allowed for the Hallyu wave to sustain itself and bloom as it hits an unlimited audience.
Tiffany states, “The K-Pop has definitely become a bigger influence than it was like 5 or 10 years ago. so it’s exciting for music to be such a big part of culture here.”
She continues, “Thanks to the Internet, you know, not just Asia but all around the world. So it’s been globalized, and I think a lot of fans around the world are enjoying the Korean music because it’s easy to reach to, and it’s entertaining,” she ends with a laugh.
In the meantime, SNSD has been busy in July with six concerts for their Arena Tour in Japan and Korea, and various broadcast performances in both countries as well.
