Bangalore’s favourite technology, cultural and entertainment hub, Samsung Opera House, today, hosted a special event for K-Pop fans in the city, organised by Bengaluru’s most popular Korean fan group Indhangul. Korean pop culture is the most prominent aspect of the Korean cultural wave that has taken the world by storm. This extremely youthful musical form — along with K-dramas — has driven the love for South Korean content among millennials around the globe. In Bengaluru alone, there are about 8-10 K-pop fan groups with close to 3000 fans.
The Korean pop culture has received an overwhelming response in India and is a major hit amongst Indian millennials. Keeping the growing popularity of ‘K-pop’ in mind, this day-long event brought K-pop fans from across Bengaluru under one roof. The excitement among K- pop fans was evident among the crowd as this event gave them a platform to explore latest K-pop music powered by Samsung My Galaxy app. It’s fascinating to see how Korean music has achieved such an incredible fan following in India.
Participants engaged in wide range of engagement-led activities themed around K-Culture which include screening of Korean content, K drama Quiz, singing and dance performances. Amongst the many activities planned for the attendees, ‘Guess the K-pop song with the help of emojis’ got the audience going with participants showing off their knowledge on K-pop culture.
