Saturday's Korean Music Wave in Bangkok was no different. Rajamangkala stadium was filled to capacity by devoted K-pop fans, some of whom had begun queuing as early as 7am. To celebrate its 50th year in business, Korea's biggest TV station, MBC, decided to spread K-love in Thailand where Korean pop culture maintains a very strong fort. Korean Music Wave in Bangkok displayed the station's megawatt power through a stellar line-up featuring the biggest names in Korean music from TVXQ and 2PM to Wonder Girls and Girls Generation. The concert brought 20 boy bands and girl groups together at one venue - and the result was a massive turnout. When the overwhelmed officials manning the gates didn't operate quickly enough, and more and more screams could be heard from fans who were already inside the stadium, the wave of people started pushing more urgently against the barriers. Luckily, it didn't come to blows and no one got hurt.
