‘SNSD Cosplay’ is getting more and more popular among male students in Japan and the fact that these students try to look like SNSD from head to toe, has garnered much attention.
Seohyun who celebrated her birthday on June 28th, had to stay back in Japan due to the Arena Tour. However, Japanese fans organized an event just for Seohyun by doing a cosplay of SNSD’s ‘Marine Look’, the concept first introduced for ‘Tell Me Your Wish (Genie)’ back in 2009.
The birthday party organized by the Japanese fans for Seohyun showed how popular the girls are. Through Mnet’s ‘Boom the K-POP’, viewers will be able to witness Seohyun’s birthday party as well as SNSD’s lifestyles and popularity in Japan.
Mnet ‘BOOM the K-POP’ consists of 2 parts. The first part entitled ‘Do You Know SNSD?’ which introduced the ‘SNSD Fever’ in Japan was aired on July 14th. The second part of the show entitled ‘Right Now SNSD!’ which analyzes the power of SNSD in establishing themselves as Japan’s fashion and cultural icon will be aired at 7.30pm KST on July 21st.
Through the mass media, we hear news about overseas activities of Korean singers every day. In fact, the Kpop industry garners overwhelming popularity in Asian countries. Recently, the Kpop syndrome has gone beyond Asia, to as far as Europe and South American countries.
In view of this, cable channel Mnet crews followed SNSD to their 1st Japan Arena Tour held in Yoyogi Sports Stadium on the 29th of June. The crews personally experienced the ‘SNSD fever’ in Japan.
The Mnet production crews went to various cultural attractions in Japan, such as Shinjuku, Shinbuya, Halajuku and Shin-Okubo, where they met and interviewed Japanese people of different gender and age groups.
SNSD who are gradually becoming a part of the young generation’s life, also change the lifestyles of these young people. The secret behind their charms is going to be revealed for the first time through Mnet’s Korean Wave reports.
Divided into 2 sections, the first part of the report entitled “Do you know SNSD?” will be aired on the 14th of July, this Thursday, where reasons for SNSD’s popularity will be revealed.
Mnet’s production crew said, “In the past, Korean fan culture was very much different from the Japanese. Korean fans carry out activities in groups while Japanese fans prefer to do it individually. However, after Korean singers gained much popularity in Japan, Japanese fan culture became somewhat similar to that of the Koreans”.
The crew also added, “Unlike Korea, SNSD are popular among Japanese females from the group age of 10-30 years old. This is not only due their songs, but also the fact that female fans follow SNSD’s fashions closely as well as learning their makeup methods, which changes the fans’ lifestyles. So far, the news made known to the public in Korea only discussed about the overseas activities and popularity of Korean singers but ‘BOOM the K-POP’ will be bringing more realistic reports to the viewers as our crews have personally experienced the ‘SNSD fever’ in Japan.”
Mnet ‘BOOM the K-POP’ preview video was released first through YouTube last week. Even though it was a short video clip, it garnered over 30,000 views from people in Korea as well as Korean music lovers in foreign countries.
In addition to these, Mnet will be showing live scenes of SNSD’s Yoyogi Japan Arena Tour for the first time, through the first section of ‘BOOM the K-POP’ which will be aired on July 14th at 7.30pm KST!
