KBS 2TV’s music programme “Music Bank” will be spreading the Korean Wave fever to the US, China and Europe through its World Tour.
KBS entertainment director Jeon JinGuk revealed, “We are preparing for Music Bank World Tour” when he met the reporters at Yeoio-do in Seoul on the 27th of July.
According to Director Jeon JinGuk, KBS will be bringing its large-scale K-pop concert to New York (October 2011), China (November 2011), Vietnam and Europe (in 2011).
He also said, “The concert in China will be an extended version of the Korea-China Song Festival. The timing for a concert in Vietnam will be just right as it coincides with the 20th anniversary of Korea-Vietnam Diplomatic Ties and therefore, we will have a big Korean Wave concert in Ho Chi Minh City.”
He added, “KBS is also having further discussions with the European organizers on the concert, where popularity of Korean celebrities is raising rapidly.”
On the other hand, ‘Music Bank’ is expanding towards being the representative of all music programmes in Korea with more than 70 countries broadcasting the programme simultaneously. Recently, ‘Music Bank in Tokyo: Kpop Festival’ was held in Tokyo Dome, Japan and the successful huge-scale concert attracted about 43,000 fans.
