You’ve probably heard of J-pop: the slick, chart-friendly Japanese language pop that garners millions of hits on Youtube. Well, prepare for K-pop. Korea’s currently home to one of the world’s biggest emerging pop scenes, and it’s growing fast. A couple of weeks ago, the first ever K-pop gig in New York saw fans keeping vigil outside the performers’ hotel, queues for tickets starting as early as 4am and a sell-out gig at 15,000 seater venue Madison Square Gardens. And now it’s London’s turn. United Cube in London sees Korean Record label Cube Entertainment put on a roster of their artists at Brixton Academy on December 5. If you want to see what all the excitement is about, make sure you join the queues of screaming fans.
