The Philippines Love KPOP






 


Jessica Soho recently released a documentary in the Philippines about the KPOP craze that's currently brewing over there. For years, Korean dramas and movies have been very popular in The Philippines, but it's only recently that KPOP has been blowing up into the mainstream.

The first part of Soho's documentary features Sandara Park and her rise to fame. The much noted story about her less than stellar career in Korea, before becoming famous in The Philippines, and then her back in her own native Korea as a member of 2NE1. The first part also features The Wonder Girls and their hit song "Nobody."

The second part shows a crazed TVXQ / DBSK fan (Cassiopeia)... but not all is rosy in this documentary, as a Filipino by the name of Ramon del Rosario is angry that KPOP is somewhat taking away attention from Filipino artists. Overall, it was pretty entertaining to watch.
