Like Maknae has said before in an episode of ‘Factory Girl’, “nothing is impossible“.
According to sources like sportsseoul.com and Fanwonder, SM Entertainment might possibly head to South America to continue their ‘SM Town Live World Tour’ this July due to SM’s artists’ huge popularity there.
It seems that in a survey, ‘Which artiste will have a concert in Brazil?’, conducted February this year via a TV broadcast, SM’s artists’ Super Junior, BoA, Girls’ Generation, and SHINee were in the top 4 and in another survey conducted in November last year by Korea Foundation for International Culture Exchange (KOFICE) regarding Brazilian fans’ choice of famous Korean singers, Super Junior came in 1st, SHINee 2nd, BoA 4th, and Girls’ Generation 5th.
Music industry official said, “SM’s ripple effect is really great. Not only in US, Japan, China, the artistes have managed to make impact even to Europe and South America and this is such a rare phenomenon for Korean artistes. Isn’t this the way of the true ‘World Stars’?”.
This July, if SM Entertainment decides to come to South America to continue the ‘world tour’ in the region, concerts might be held in South American countries such as Brazil and Chile and attending artists include BoA, DBSK, Super Junior, Girls’ Generation, SHINee, f(x), etc.
Though SM Entertainment hasn’t officially confirmed this yet, nothing is impossible right? What do you guys think? Personally, I think it’s pretty cool if the SM Town Live 2011 World Tour comes to South America. South American fans would have a chance to see some of their favorite K-Pop singers perform live. If they do head to South America, I pray that they’ll head north after haha. I hope they have another SM Town Live concert in North America because I’ve been saving up for it haha.
