SBS Cancels K-Pop Super Concert in America

It was announced on Absolute K-pop, “We regret to inform you that the SBS K-Pop Super Concert in America, scheduled to take place at the Home Depot Center this Friday, August 10, 2012, has been postponed to a later date. More details will be announced as soon as possible.” The event was expected to have an amazing lineup of Girls’ Generation, MBLAQ, SHINee, Kara, 2PM, CN Blue, 2AM, SISTAR, and Secret, many K-Pop fans were saddened to hear the news of the postponement, but most were peeved. The main reasons why fans are upset by this news is because it happened with such short notice, and they feel that the K-pop industry doesn't understand what U.S. fans go through to see these concerts. Yes, I can get the tickets refunded, but it is far too late to get their tickets and room booking fees refunded (which range anywhere from $250-thousands of dollars). Since K-pop organizers always pick New York and California, it means that thousands of fans have to travel to these areas to watch the show, which means either a very long road trip or an expensive flight. My friends in Hawaii had already booked their plane tickets for this concert almost soon as it was announced. Organizers seem to forget that America is a huge country and most fans come from outside of the places they hold these concerts. It really is rather inconsiderate. If you want to spread K-pop all over the world, the least you can do is be professional and have your act together.

I'm from Atlanta, Georgia, USA, but have been constantly moving around since my college days. So much so that my mom has called me Carmen Sandiego. Just kicked off my global diet experiment to change my life for the better ^_^
