Too much of a good thing?

I’ve recently started a event calendar on my site because well, I couldn’t keep up with all the events and artistes coming anymore.  I know lots of other online sites who have started to do the same.

All these began about about 4 years back, with the first ever Sundown Festival in 2009. It was the first commercial concert and it was a huge success with Browned Eye Girls, FT Island etc performing. So much so that the President of Korea Tourism Organisaiton, Mr Charm Lee personally paid a visit to our little red dot to watch the event.

There has been no stopping the flood since.

Where once we bemoan the rare sightings of the creature called Hallyu/ K Pop star, now they are popping up almost every weekend like meerkats.

Well known ones, rookies types, sexy girls, handsome boys, fascinating divas, charming men, tall models, muscles types and the list goes on.

Sometimes, I don’t even know who they are.

I mean I know who they are… but I don’t know who they are.

I’m not sure it’s healthy and contributing to the advancement and enjoyment of Hallyu. Of course, if someone invites them here, I’m sure the artistes are more than happy to come. Not only does it mean more exposure outside of the very competitve Korea entertainment industry, it also means they get paid (and we all know how very little rookie groups get paid).

Which brings up another question.

How do the fans managed to cough up the money? *Shakes head*.

And it is not unusual now to have clashes.

A good example- on the 24th May, there are 3 events on:
Singapore Social (Psy and Blush)
Music Matters Live (M.I.B., AOA, Lena Park etc)
A-jax showcase

Of course, if you are a fan of the artiste, it’s probably your dream come true.

Still, I can’t help but wonder if the fans are feeling a little ‘constipated’ with the ‘good stuff’. And we’re only in the second quarter of the year.

I hope I survive.

But if this man ever comes to Singapore for another fan meet or open a cafe, I’ll be the first in queue.

Mr Bae, I’ll be waiting.
