Announcing the concerts, Mr. Kim Kum-pyoung, Director, Korean Cultural Center, said, “On the cultural front, K-POP as a juggernaut of Korean soft-power is something we were very keen on introducing in India. With N-Sonic’s visit last year as judges of the K-POP audition, we confirmed the potential popularity of K-Pop here. This concert marks the first-ever K-POP concert in the country and we have great expectations on the K-POP phenomenon taking India by storm. What better place to unveil the first ever K-Pop concert than at cultural fests of the top schools of India.”
