Recently, Japan’s leading music industry’s staff sigh for despair because of young Korean artists’ popularity.
Thailand, Taiwan and other Asian countries’ important music territory are being occupied by Korea’s TVXQ, Big Bang and other korean artists. Before, idols’ market had always been occupied by Japan’s bands.
In Asia, ‘the best singers are the Koreans’. This kind of right saying is heard a lot. SMTown concert was held in Bangkok an audience of 40 000 filled the stadium.
SM artists like TVXQ, Super Junior, Jang Ri In, SNSD and SHINee uses ‘are u happy’, ‘I love you’ and other phrases in Thai to greet everyone, causing fans to cheer more.
Overall, though Korean Wave is a bit stagnating/dull but the music heat phenomenon did not cascaded. (??)
Where’d you get that?
