K-Pop Concerts Outside of Asia 2011!

Tired of watching K-Pop idols perform on tv and not in front of you? Sad because you don't live in South Korea and cannot meet your favorite stars? Well I've got something to cheer you up with!

This post is for all the K-pop lovers out there who don't necessarily live in an Asian country and have been missing out on the awesome showcases and concerts that K-pop stars are always having in countries such as China, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, the Philippines and Japan.


This post can also be for the asian K-pop supporters who aren't living in Asia during this year. I hope you guys will be happy about the love some countries in North America, Europe and Oceania are having for South Korea's best! You can now look out for concerts near you this year. You might be suprised with who's on the list!


SEPTEMBER 2011



3rd - "CONCERT FOR JAPAN" Earthquake & Tsunami Relief in Toronto, CANADA

Where: Downsview Park
When: 12pm
Who: FT ISLAND

Watch out! FT Island is ready to rock Toronto! On the 3rd of September set as "Rock Day", as one of the 2-day benefit. Show your support for the unlucky happenings in Japan and to see FT Island perform there would be really fitting since FT Island has been extremely famous in their japanese promotions!

Wow, why couldn't FTI come to Canada when I was there?? T-T Toronto kids are really lucky *-*
