ISA: LA 2011 ROCKED. Amazing. Spectacular. Exhilarating.

Into its fourth year and still growing strong, ISA has brought to us yet again another night of amazing, spectacular talent. For those who missed out, I’m fairly certain that you’ll be able to catch a few clips floating around YouTube. But you had to be there to feel the dedication, the passion, the time, and the  energy put into this year’s ISA: LA. It was truly an exhilarating experience for the ISA family to share together.

Doors opened a little past 1 in the afternoon, right when the sun was at its brightest. But a few fans told me that the line started as early as 8 in the morning! That’s some dedicated fans! The ridiculously long line of eager fans, friends, and family stretched to what seemed to be miles and miles long. Thankfully, it was not. The fact that there was no shade did not help either. Next year, they should think about renting tarps or canopies – a lot of them. Since we couldn’t bring any food or beverages into the park, everyone had to throw out the water bottles they brought. (And they had to buy expensive food inside…) I tried chugging my water down, but luckily, the guard who checked me in let me bring my water bottle in. Thank you, kind security guard. Entering the concert grounds, I looked around conflicted. I wanted to go up near the stage; I wanted to check out what kind of food they were selling; I wanted to see who was at the meet-and-greet area; I wanted to buy albums, posters, and Awkward Animals. Yes, Awkward Animals. You should check them out! Continue reading

Why are foreigners so captivated by K-pop?

There was a time when certain Koreans were flustered by even the slightest reaction from foreign lands about K-pop. Those were the days when international communication only existed through newspaper and Television. However, now that the Internet has opened new modes of global communication, marketing through such blind deception isn’t possible anymore.

In that sense, the back-to-back concerts on the 10th and 11th of June, “SM Town Live in Paris” carries that much more meaning. The artists Super Junior, TVXQ, SNSD, SHINee, and f(x) have never released a single album in France. Yet, approximately 14,000 fans in the area attended the concert to support their favorite foreign artist. This is why this first K-pop idol collaboration concert in Europe carries so much more meaning than just the surface definition.
