I had the great pleasure to attend the Google/YouTube sponsored MBC K-Pop concert – MBC Korean Music Wave – at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, California. The event was free, though tickets were “sold” out fast via the ticketing website within a few hours. Luckily, Google employees were able to get tickets in advance, and I received a pair from my cousin, who works there. K-pop bands MBLAQ, SISTAR, f(x), KARA, BEAST, Girls’ Generation, Wonder Girls, Super Junior and TVXQ performed – though I had to leave after the Wonder Girls performed. The event took place in celebration to MBC’s content partnership with Google/YouTube – which the audience was reminded often by the bands that performed and also happened to be YouTube’s 7th anniversary.
