Wonder Girls in Singapore for K-pop Concert

This is not a hoax. I actually learnt about this Kpop concert in Singapore from an Anbiholic friend, RgalSteff a few weeks back but nothing was confirmed yet. Then she told me about the artistes that would be coming yesterday (subject to change) but I didn’t want to post it yet until it’s really confirmed.

Well, many thanks to jean_kkp who emailed me about this and kyurella@livejournal who emailed the Korean embassy for information.

Well for the record, the Singapore Tourism Board has organized a Korea Festival 2008 from 1st to 18th November, with a variety of traditional and contemporary events, from fine arts to popular culture and mainstream music. But the highlight has got to be the K-Pop Concert which will be held on Tuesday evening, 4th November 2008 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

Details are sketchy at the moment but the following is an email reply from the Embassy of the Republic of Korea who are the organizers for this event.

Thanks for expressing your interest in the K-Pop Concert, to be held on 4th November 2008 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

We are very excited to introduce a promising line-up of singers and performers from Korea, including established stars such as the Wonder Girls, Chae Yeon, Andy, JunJin, V.O.S., and Jewelry. Emerging artistes such as U-Kiss, 2PM, Peter and Kim Jong Wook will also feature in the performance on the 4th.

Ticketing arrangements for the K-Pop Concert are still being finalised. Tickets will not be sold through the usual outlets such as SISTIC. Instead, they will be given away over the next few weeks through our key sponsors, Far East Organisation, LG Electronics and Korean Air. You may wish to check with the above-mentioned sponsors on their plans to release tickets to the public.

Korea International Radio will also be holding live quizzes around mid-October to give away free tickets to listeners.

We encourage you to stay tuned for further developments and news in the media over the next few weeks.

Thank you.

It seems like it would be a lottery to get the tickets. While it’s great that the Wonder Girls are coming, but it looks like it would be a long shot to see them perform. But it’s nice to see them taking the time to come overseas to Singapore for a performance from their busy schedule. Hope that those who win the tickets are K-pop fans or at least become a convert after watching.

  17. i live in Malaysia, so its very near to singapore… but sadly my exams are coming up, so i have to focuse on my education… so sad… i doubt my parents would let me go though, i have a busy schedule lately, so glad to here good news from WONDER GIRLS, it really helps me release my stress. anyways, WONDER GIRLS AND WONDERFULS HWAITING111

  18. ^^that was what i was thinking, weird huh? they won’t even sell part of the tickets?
    we probably have to buy products from the sponsors,
    really hope we get to see them perform!!!

  19. Doesn’t matter if i don’t have the tickets. As long as Wonder Girls knew that they have fans in Singapore, They will be happy.

  20. Singaporean here! And a Wonderful, too πŸ˜€ I’m really hoping I would get to go, and I’m going to try my damned hardest to get the tickets. I wonder why they won’t they sell it, and instead give it away? I mean. If they sell it would be easier for us and what’s more, it’ll rake in profit for them. No? No?

    Aish but anyway. Joined the forum! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  21. SERIOUS? SERIOUS? IM GONNA KILL PEOPLE FOR THE TICKETS.
    ROARRRRR~

  31. I have joined the forums,
    this is exciting eh

    LG, probably we would have to get a phone. ahhhh all out for wondergirls.

    I wished the tickets were easier to obtained.
    it will be a kick in the a** if we didn’t got the tickets

    every one stick to coolktime

  32. yah someone should start something on facebook perhaps or something easy to access and then i will post about it and everyone can discuss about the plans. But it’s not going to be easy because the organizers are all Korean. or someone email jypentertainment!

    I am all for it.

  33. I totally agree with everyone.
    We need to get organised. If we band together as a local fan base, that will give us more leverage to get tickets. Shall we??? Its not gonna be easy but I’m sure we can get something together..
    Coolsmurf what say you on this? Your opinion matters the most..hahah

    Anyway my email – denise_tsh@hotmail.com

  34. why does it have to be on November 8!? it’s a week after our semester break! huhuhu.. i cannot go….i wish i can, but i can’t..huhuhu..

    Why no we gather all SG Wonderfuls first. Let’s see… We need to create a website first… Yahoo groups? Invisionfree forums? any ideas?
