Tunisia Celebrates K-Pop Culture With a Flash Mob Covering Hits from Big Bang, EXO, Girls’ Generation, and More!
Hallyu has truly spread around the world!
On March 16, over 200 K-Pop fans gathered in Sidi Bou Said in Tunisia to celebrate their love for K-Pop whilst showing off their talents. In a span of thirty minutes, the crowd rotated through covers of over thirty iconic songs of various K-Pop groups and artists, including PSY‘s “Gangnam Style,” 2NE1‘s “I Am the Best,” EXO‘s “Wolf,” Big Bang‘s “Fantastic Baby,” Girls’ Generation‘s “I Got a Boy,” and more!
The flash mob event was representative of the K-Pop fandom and culture emerging in countries outside of South Korea. The Tunisian K-Pop Flash Mob team, which is mainly comprised of 25 dancers, commented that they started preparing for this event since January of this year. After three months of hard work, they came together to celebrate a unified love for K-Pop through a flash mob, which garnered the attention of the Embassy of the Republic of Korea in Tunisia.
