Saitama is the capital and the most populous city of Saitama Prefecture in Japan, situated in the south-east of the prefecture. Thousands of fans went to this concert just near Tokyo to see their favorite K-pop stars on 22nd of April.

Popular K-Pop groups gave it all

Groups such as INFINITE, Block B, GOT7, Supernova, SISTAR were among the musicians performing at the indoor Saitama Super Arena for their showcase concert called “M Countdown”.

Organizers created the event as a cultural and economic exhibition, with dozens of South Korean companies setting up booths to showcase food and other products outside the concert venue on Wednesday 22nd of April evening.

In Japan, K-Pop is the world’s second largest after the American pop market for the last five years. K-Pop is mostly groups with cute Asian girls and handsome boys singing together in different groups.

The structure of Korea’s relatively small music market means the singers, known for their young, cool image and distinct dance choreography, search for success abroad.

PSY’s Gangnam Style, which became a global YouTube hit in 2012, got quite big international interest. So many have tried to continue his success.
