On May 21st at 6PM PST, Google will be hosting a concert at their Mountain View, California headquarters featuring performances by K-Pop’s reigning stars including SM Entertainment‘s Girls’ Generation, TVXQ, Super Junior as well as KARA, SISTAR, MBLAQ, B2ST, and the Wonder Girls. This event will broadcast through MBC and Google.
This will be the first time that a K-Pop concert will broadcast through not only a Korean channel, but through a major internet portal like Google, evidencing the rise of K-Pop’s popularity all over the world.
A representative of the event stated, “After hearing the news that Korean artists will be performing at the Google headquarters, curiosity has peaked even among the local event organizers. I think that previous performances by Korean artists were targeted towards Korean-Americans or the Koreans living abroad, but this time its appeal will spread to all fans of pop music in the US.”
In related news, SM artists will also be performing for their ‘SMTown Live‘ concert at the Honda Center in California on May 20th.
