  1. YEAH! Except for Super Junior none of the SM Town will be there.!!! I’m so looking forward to this!! No offence SM Town is so over-rated. JYPE too.! Cube and YG Fighting!!🙂

  2. For those of you who don’t understand what Hallyu means: Hallyu is when a popular korean group or artists had made a big impact in another country. They represent by bringing in the kpop music to a foreign country. So I agree with most of the line ups, since they are popular in other countries. Some I don’t, but obviously some of the groups have a chance to bring the Hallyu wave to other countries. Hope the groups and artists have fun.

  3. Who’s flower?

  4. another concert flooded with idols whats new

  5. miss A!!!!!

  6. woaa can´t wait for 2ne1!!!

  7. If they got all the artist that we want in one concert, producers will gonna broke LOL… maybe those others not in the list has another engagement… better luck next time! KPOP really addicted eh…

  8. Whee, excited for this concert!! BEAST. 2NE1. Se7en! 2AM! =D

  9. this is almost sealing the deal that BB won’t be coming back this year. i’m almost losing my faith here. if it’s pushed back to next year i will probably go insane. and that would make 3 yrs hiatus and a few more torturous months of waiting.

    i mean, YB’s new song “i’ll be there” will be coming out soon, then probably 2NE1’s comeback will be somewhere between august and september, then BIGBANG will be flying to japan again by the end of august to promote “beautiful hangover” and then YB’s concert and his international album, and then se7en’s supposed to drop another album this october, then dae has his drama and maknae has an MC appearance.

    with all that scheduled, exactly WHEN is YG gonna cram in BIGBANG’s comeback??

    then again, IF YG does decide to cram in their comeback this year, i’d be upset in a different way because then, that means they’re not well-rested, which also means the album and comeback will be rushed.

    so, even if i will be slightly upset that their comeback is ONCE AGAIN pushed back, i guess it’s better than rushing things and getting them all overworked.

    i still insanely MISS THEM tho!!! TT^TT

    • I’m in the same boat as you, I want a comeback but I want a comeback worthy of them. Not some half-a$$ promotions like YB’s been having where they’re flying back and forth between Japan and Korea. If they make a comeback I expect at least a solid month of just Korean promotions. TMG did better than expected comepared to their previous Jap singles (sold 10k more during the first week than all their other singles) and they’ve been doing a lot of summer concerts to get their names out. It’s the perfect time to capitalize on it and I think that’s why their comeback was put on hold. But I’m hoping of an early 2011 comeback – like in Jan-March.

      • actually, i don’t believe YB’s promo was ever half-assed at all. his promotion this time around is just wayyy more subtle than we expected. it was a strong promo, very hyped if you asked me, it’s just the silent explosion type.

        i mean, he did have a full month and i believe he only flew to japan on the 2nd/3rd week of promo for some japanese activities. he also has Real Sound, he did Strong Heart, went on the show where IU was fangirling over him, he did Sketchbook, also released a deluxe version, his album went up on itunes and is getting an international album AND a brand new song is due to be released. not to mention 2 MVs for INAG. both of which were great MVs regardless of whatever issues surrounded it.

        anyway, yea. i think his comeback, despite being lukewarm with the generic kpop masses, (but definitely majorly explosive within YB’s range of fans) i believe YG went all-out with it. his album was still selling superbly, did awesome on charts, grabbed some awards and was generally well-loved, even if it’s not obvious. i mean, that’s YB’s style right? silent yet dangerous. sweet yet intense.

        the only problem i could find with his promo this time around, was i wish it were longer and more stable. he was slightly unfocused during some shows and performances and i wish he weren’t. but he did great nonetheless.

        lol. off-topic rant. sorry.

        anyway, yea, i do want a comeback from BB, and even though i hope it’ll come soon, at the same time, i won’t be too adamant abt it being this year, if the results are gonna be sloppy. if they need a few more months, then i’ll willingly (yet slightly grudgingly) wait for it.

      • p/s: if they’re gonna push it to next year, it better be in the early first half. srsly. it should be somewhere between january and febuary and the latest should be early march and no more than that. lol. all this waiting has got me impatient and unyielding.

    • I feel the same way. But I would actually take away YB on the timeline. The new song release is part of the “international version” of Solar, so I wouldn’t think he’d be promoting it in Korea.

      But yeah, I’m guessing 2NE1 (late Aug-early Sept) and Se7en in October.

      BB’s new single is out on Aug 25th and they already have a fan event in Thailand on Sept….

      The woes of a BB fan. 😥

      • IKR?? why is it so hard for us to see them?

        you mean,”i’ll be there” won’t be promoted? why not? i believe they are in the midst of filming for the MV. is there any reason to believe this new song is fully in english?? hmmm… but even so, i think one or two performances of the song in korea is a must. or not. YG can be really unpredictable.

        yes, the woes of a YGFamily fan. TT^TT

  12. whoa 2ne1 and seven…cant wait..i smell 2ne1 comeback is just around the corner.

  13. YES!!!! 2NE1!!! Hell to the YEAH!!!!!

  14. i think i am the only one who hate this news because NO INFINITE… -_-a

  15. 2NE1! OMG… They coming back before that concert date!

  16. NO INFINITE ??????

    oh my gosh….
    i hate this…

    *sorry*

  17. wow FT Island

  18. ARRGGGHHHH!!!!!!!!

    2ne1!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this news made my day!!!! i love you!!!

  19. OK. I saw 2ne1 up there…does it mean that by the time the festival takes place, they already made their comeback (I mean because normally they’d sing their latest songs or whatever). I’m a bit jittery with this hahaha! But what about BB? YGE and their plans are making me crazzzzzzy.

    • 2ne1 come back is just around the corner. But I doubt BB will make a come back this year. If BB really never come back this year, I will really piss off at YG.
      Srsy, 2010 kpop is the worst. All crappy songs come out. The only songs that decent are 2am Even if you die and IU’s nagging.
      I really NEED aome Banging action

      • I heard on some forums that chances are higher that BB won’t make a Korean come back this year, but I myself is still in some major denial. I’m mad excited for 2ne1 to come back, but no BB would make everything super duper incomplete. T.T

        Totally Offt, but yeah. just have to let it out of my chest.😦

    • 2NE1’s comeback is sometime between late August and early September so I’ll think they’ll definitely release new stuff before this concert. And if I remember correctly YG stated that he didn’t want 2NE1 to perform at Dream Concert (which was a couple months ago) because he didn’t want 2NE1 to perform their old songs.
