Hallyu gets boost from KBS Music Bank in Hong Kong

On June 23, thousands of K-pop fans flocked to Asia-World Arena, Hong Kong’s largest performance venue to watch their favourite Korean artistes perform live. This is surely a sign of K-pop’s phenomenal rise in popularity.

KBS Music Bank in Hong Kong featured eight popular South Korean artistes. It was also the largest K-pop concert to be held in the southern Chinese city.

Boy bands TVXQ, B2ST, MBLAQ, CNBLUE, and INFINITE raised the temperature levels while girl groups the Wonder Girls and f(x) as well as singing starlet IU captivated fans with their pretty faces and choreography.

I am very happy that Hong Kong is able to organize such a large K-pop concert,” said Sunye, a member of the Wonder Girls, who performed at the concert to a sea of exuberant fans.

Music Bank concerts were sold out in Tokyo in 2011, and it was also a hit in early 2012 in Paris, according to the concert organisers. The tour will now head on to Brazil and the United States later this year.
