Music Bank‘ is setting out to be the leader of the growing Hallyu wave, as they’ve just confirmed that they will be bringing the show to four overseas cities next year!
Starting with Paris in February, the show will be stopping by Hong Kong, Los Angeles, and finally Buenos Aires, with other cities currently being negotiated. Producers of the show are busy trying to line up artists for the overseas performances.
Back in July, ‘Music Bank’ managed to gather 45,000 people for their ‘Music Bank in Tokyo K-Pop Festival‘, and is the only music program out of the weekly line-up attempting to take their show overseas. After seeing the success of their Tokyo Dome concert, producers of the show promised, “We’ll continue to support and aid in the spreading of Korean culture all over the world.”
This decision doesn’t come without some controversy, however, as some industry officials are of the opinion that TV programs are trying to use the Hallyu wave to their benefit.
