K-POP band N-Sonic set for multi-city tour in India

MUMBAI:  Popular South Korean all boys band N-Sonic are set to enthrall music lovers in Ahmedabad, Chennai and Guwahati starting 26 January.

The Korean Cultural Center Thursday announced the globally popular music phenomenon, K-POP 2015 concert tour in India.

The K-POP concert tour is the first of its kind in the country with the band performing at IIM Ahmedabad, Jan 26; SRM University Chennai, Jan 28; and IIT Guwahati, Jan 30. The performances will be followed by a fan signing meet in New Delhi in 31 January.

K-POP is a modern form of South Korean pop music that includes dance-pop, pop ballad, electronic, rock and hip-hop.

"Since it’s rare opportunity to go to India, we planned hard to give strong impression about K-POP and N-Sonic. For this India schedule, not only concert but we planned to have fan meetings to meet more Indian fans. We heard India puts a lot of effort to preserve and maintain their culture.

"These days the world is only rapidly changing to evolve as developed countries and trying to preserve the traditional is incredible," the bandmates consisting of J. Heart, Sihoo, Byeol, Minkee, Black J and Zion, said in a joint statement.

Kim Kum-pyoung, director of Korean Cultural Center, also said that on the cultural front, K-POP as a juggernaut of Korean soft-power "is something we were very keen on introducing in India".

"With N-Sonic's visit last year as judges of the K-POP audition, we confirmed the potential popularity of K-Pop here. This concert marks the first-ever K-POP concert in the country and we have great expectations on the K-POP phenomenon taking India by storm," he added.
