Just months after making history by being the first Asians to perform at the famed Abbey Road Studios in London, SHINee is all set to go back to the city that welcomed them warmly. The five-member boy group is slated to open The London Korean Film Festival 2011 with a performance at the Odeon West End on November 3.
On the same day, Korean blockbuster “Arrow: The Ultimate Weapon” will also be screened, serving as the film festival’s opening film. “Sunny,” “Poongsan,” “The Front Line” and “Late Autumn” will likewise be among those screened in the three-week festival.
SHINee’s participation in the Festival program is expected to increase awareness and interest in not only the films but in Korean culture as a whole, since K-Pop provides significant influence in the growing Korean Wave.
