First gaining popularity in East Asia in the late 1990s, K-pop entered the Japanese music market towards the turn of the 21st century. In the late 2000s, it grew from a musical genre into a subculture among teenagers and young adults of East and Southeast Asia. Currently, the spread of K-pop to other regions of the world, via the Korean wave, is most clearly seen in parts of Latin America, Northeast India, the Middle East, North Africa, and immigrant enclaves of the Western world Whobet JukeBox

New Edge differentiates itself from its competition with its private backbone and MPLS network product. New Edge also manages network connections for more than 350 multi-site retailers and has received several awards, most recently the Front & Sullivan “Customer Value Enhancement” Award and Gartner’s “Magic Quadrant” for Remote Access and Mobility Services.

Index= 50 Title=K-POP [] Africa, India, and the Middle East In Turkey, Korean culture is catching on quickly and Internet-savvy generation of Turks are using their computers and phones to explore cultures around the world, rather than simply accepting what is spoon-fed to them, and a large chunk of the pre-teen demographic is flocking to South Korean culture. Turkish boys and girls are watching Korean movies and television online, downloading K-pop songs, and even starting Korean culture clubs.[69] The boyband ZE:A appeared for a meet and greet session for fans in Dubai[70] and a concert in Abu Dhabi.[71] In Israel, local K-pop fans met South Korea's Ambassador to Israel Ma Young-sam in July 2011. Israeli fans traveled to Paris for the SMTown Live '10 World Tour in Europe.[72] In Cairo, hundreds of K-pop fans came to Maadi Library’s stage theater to see the final round of the K-POP Korean Song Festival, organized by the Korean Embassy. Fans drew banners in Korean and many were screaming along to the Korean songs.[73] Oceania Concerts in Australia include the 2011 K-Pop Music Festival, at the ANZ Stadium in Sydney,[74] featuring TVXQ, B2ST, SHINee, 4minute, miss A, 2AM, and MBLAQ. The South Korean Embassy will be backing New Zealand's first national K-pop competition, to take place this year.[75] The song 'Gangnam Style' by Psy reached number one in both Australia, New Zealand and Great Britain. Corruption Fan obsession Appeal and fanbase Fan rice towers from Super Junior fans, in Germany as a gift to Eunhyuk According to some opinions, the music itself is not the decisive factor in the popularity of K-pop. A publication in New York Magazine calls K-pop "catchy but derivative" and states that Girls' Generation fans admit to liking the group for its members' looks and their personality, radiating what the magazine calls "humility" and friendliness to each and one of the fans. A fan stated to the magazine that when Girls' Generation performs on stage, you get the illusion of the girls sometimes looking right at you and interacting with you personally.[76] Many K-pop fans travel overseas to get the chance to see Korean bands. Tours from Japan and China bring many fans to see K-pop concerts.[26] A K-pop group tour from Japan had more than 7000 fans fly to Seoul to meet the boyband JYJ.[77] During the Korean boy band JYJ's concert in Barcelona, fans from many parts of the world camped overnight to gain entrance.[78] K-pop fans purchase bags of Fan rice as gifts to their favourite bands in order to show their love and support. According to Time Magazine, for BIGBANG's first show in months, 12.7 tons of rice were donated from 50 fan clubs around the world and stacks of rice bags were lined up like shrines to the "K-pop idols". There are businesses dedicated to making sure the rice gets to the idols. Roh Seung-gu got into this industry when fans just bought bouquet towers for the bands. Now he has 24 offices around the country helping source and ship rice from South Korean farmers to various venues.[79] Another way for a fan to show devotion is sending lunch to the stars, and there are special lunch providers in South Korea for this purpose. The trend started when fans picked up complaints that the stars do not eat properly due to their busy schedule.[80] K-Pop was also mentioned during a U.S. State Department briefing on October 3, 2012, when a reporter asked spokeswoman Victoria Nuland if she had heard about Gangnam Style, to which Nuland replied: "No, but I bet you my daughter does. She loves Korean pop."[81 There is a recognized concern of K-pop fans turning to obsession and compulsive behaviors such as stalking and invasion of privacy. These fans are called sasaeng, or "private" fans. These fans are most notable young females.[83] Some sasaeng fans hire taxis to follow their idols. There are taxi services catering specifically for these fans that are willing to speed after the vans transporting idols." Korean public officials recognize this as a unique but serious concern.[83][84] Junsu from JYJ told reporters that obsessive fans have even installed GPS trackers under his car to monitor his every move During a press conference, the boy band JYJ confirmed they were victims of invasion of privacy and stalking.
