KPOP Nation '11

The continuously spreading South Korean Pop Music genre, popularly known as K-Pop and its youth culture has not only reached countries in the Pacific Rim but in South East as well including the Philippines. Filipino K-Pop fans were so enthusiastic that they support their idols in every step of the way.

As a person so curious on how K-Pop fans feel and why are they always into extreme frenzy and bliss, I decided to attend the biggest KPOP event of this year –KPOP Nation 2011.My first time in KPOP world was indeed super fun and glad to have my friend Grachelle with her friend to accompany and guide me all throughout the event.

At first I felt quite awkward and out of place because I haven’t heard their idols’ albums or songs and don’t even know what their names are, shame on me! The event was not all about music. There were also fashion booths selling accessories, head dresses, and more cute merchandise all inspired by K-Pop Culture.

Entertaining and mood boosters were those dancers and contestants looking like Korean popstars showcasing their talents in special performances, contests and various tributes for their K-Pop idols. Announcements were announced which made the crowd of youth ecstatic and euphoric.
