NYC to Hold Flash Mob for SM Town Concert Bid: Will Be Filmed by KBS World!
Yes, you heard it right here, there will be two official flash mobs in New York City to start a bid for a SM Town New York City. I talked to one of the organizers, Danielle DiMaggio, and this if the information she gave regarding times and meet up points. If you live in New York City or can get there, help them out!
There will be TWO flashmobs. At the meet up points there will be signs saying SM Town NYC so you know you’re in the right place.
The first is this coming Saturday 25th (date changed,) and will be filmed by KBS World to be broadcasted July 1st on none other than Music Bank along with other flash mobs around the world. The meet up point is Borders above Penn Station, next to Madison Square Garden, at 12 pm. The group will then walk to Times Square around 12:30 pm and filming will begin at 1 pm. It will then move to Columbus Circle then Sheep Meadow. Please try and turn up in SM Town Punk-related clothing, or if that is not possible, something K-Pop related if you can. Also bring K-Pop CDs, photobooks, signs, and posters!
