(Photo : Kim Tae Woo, JYP Entertainment, Jellyfish Entertainment, Gummy/Fly to the Sky) November is a busy K-Pop month in America with g.o.d, Kim Tae Woo, 2PM, VIXX, and others performing concerts. November has proven to be one of the most K-Pop filled months of 2014 for fans in the United States.
Legendary group g.o.d kicked off the parade of shows with their concert on November 7 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. g.o.d then traveled to Newark, New Jersey to perform at the Prudential Center. Their performance at the Prudential Center was one of the first major K-Pop concerts to be held at the venue since Big Bangs 2012 Alive Tour.
Kim Tae Woo of g.o.d will perform an intimate jazz concert for fans at Rockwood Music Hall on Thursday, November 13 at 9 PM. A limited audience will have the opportunity to hear Kim Tae Woo perform with the backing of a live band. The band is comprised of local New York musicians under the musical direction of Hyunwook Yang. Audiences must be 21 and over. Tickets are priced at $50.
Statistics showed that there were bout 32,000 fans came to each Big Bang concert. Member Daesung, who promoted in Japan under the name of D-Lite attracted about 170,000 fans to 15 concerts. If combining both Big Bang and Daesung"s promotions and concerts in Japan, Big Bang has drawn about 1.1 million fans, which is a really impressive figure.
The contestants were whisked off to Seoul, where they met up with BTOB who performed "Beep Beep". The show introduced K-pop as a "trend-setting fusion of music, dance, and fashion," showing that the contestants can learn a thing or two from the boys. Peniel also helped the contestants get the moves down with his fluent English.
Therefore, we"re very sorry to inform you that we decided to cancel B.A.P Live On Earth 2014 South America Attack to be scheduled on November after talking with Hallyutrend in full faith who has been organized the tour. Even though we"re fully aware that lots of BABYs were waiting for B.A.P"s shows, we inevitably reached this conclusion so that B.A.P can show a better performance with a better condition in the near future; we look forward to your kind understanding.
Again, please accept our sincere apologies on worrying you who really have been caring about B.A.P and we wish your continuous support and love until B.A.P is back.
B.A.P will start their tour at SK Olympic Handball Stadium on March 8 and 9. The twenty concerts are expected to attract about 100,000 BABYs in attendance.
B.A.P’s upcoming tour will follow the concept “EARTH NEEDS YOU“. There will have performances of 25 songs for each concert.
The concert will be held in celebration of the 111th Anniversary of Korean immigration to North America and will be host to a wide variety of major Kpop stars and idols like SHINee, 2PM, Sistar, CNBLUE, Dynamic Duo, and Girl’s Day. More artists will be announced soon for a total of 14 Kpop singers or groups to attend the event. Some fans are holding out hope for guests like BTS and B.A.P.
The concert will be held at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and Sports Arena- a huge events center which can hold up to 100,000 people. Best of all? This amazing concert will be held free of charge!
But struggling to get time on themajor music television shows in South Korea, the group remainedalmost unheard of in their home country and foreign fans wondered ifthey"d ever be able to generate enough revenue to keep them andChrome Entertainment from having to disband. And then Crayon Popreleased their music video for "Bar Bar Bar," which paired theirsignature simple and catchy songs with attention-drawing outfits andchoreography. The group"s recognition and popularity exploded andforeign fans no longer had to worry about Crayon Pop dying outwithout every achieving any success or recognition in their nativecountry of South Korea.
Gaon Chart Kpop Awards is an awards show which focus on the sales of songs and album. For this year many stars are nominated such as Cho Yong Pil, PSY, Girls' Generation, EXO, Sistar, San-E, IU, Davichi, Dynamic Duo, 4Minute, Miss A, SoyuMad Clown, Seo In Guk, Jia and etc.
If 2012 was the year that K-Pop crossed over with Psy's international smash 'Gangnam Style', 2013 was the year that K-Pop and the All Things Hallyu movement proved that it was here to stay. From Girls' Generation beating out Beliebers and Directioners and winning Video of the Year at the YouTube Music Awards to singer-rapper G-Dragon landing on the U.S. Billboard 200 again, with his follow-up album Coup D'Etat, Pt. 1, the Korean pop scene thrived in 2013.
