Kstar Fanfest 2014 brings K-Pop’s hottest young pop groups and Singapore’s celebrity social media fans together for two days of upclose and personal fan events and music performances
Singapore, 17 October 2014: Asia’s leading M.I.C.E company Sphere Exhibits and the Embassy of Korea proudly present the inaugural Kstar Fanfest, Singapore’s biggest K-‐pop fan celebration and the grand finale of the two-‐month long Korea Festival. Headlined by the hottest of Korea’s new wave of pop powerhouses, the two-‐day spectacular is slated to take place on 21 and 22 November 2014 at the Marina Bay Sands Convention Hall. It’s the first time K-‐Pop stars are being brought together with celebrity fans from Singapore’s social media scene, including Deekosh, Rachel Wong, Evelyn Quek, and Sylvia Tham to share and spread the Hallyu excitement.
About the Korean Bands:
One of the most sought-after Korean girl groups right now, Girl’s Day burst onto the scene in 2011 with their hit single Twinkle Twinkle and their spicy but mostly sweet image. After a slew of hits like Expectation, Female President and Something, the four-member girl band went on hiatus and returned this year with a new mini-album Everyday 4. Sojin, Minah, Yura and Hyeri have adopted a brighter, livelier look and sound, and their comeback track Darling went straight to number 1 on major Korean music charts.
Formed in 2011, B1A4 were first introduced to the world through webtoons featuring members, Jinyoung, Sandeul, Baro, CNU and Gongchan as characters. Cute, colourful and funky, B1A4 made their debut soon after with the track O.K off their first EP Let’s Fly the first of many upbeat electropop tracks that make up their musical repertoire. They recently released their 5th mini album with Solo Day as the title track, and are slated to embark on their US ‘Road Trip‘ concert tour in October.
