111102 [NEWS] CNBLUE-FTISLAND To Expand into the United Kingdom (UK) in 2012

CNBLUE and FTISLAND will soon be expanding their music career in UK, the country considered as the world’s ‘home of bands’
CNBLUE and FTISLAND are preparing a concert in UK and France early next year. As most music enthusiasts acknowledge, UK is the home of band music having cultivated world-class acts such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Oasis, Blur and Muse. Since the recent wave of K-pop is focused on dance music, it will be meaningful that bands, such as CNBLUE and FTISLAND,  is now expanding into the European music market.

This international opportunity is realized through ‘M-Live’ a branded concert produced by CJ E&M. This branded concert will bring solo and joint concerts by Korean artists overseas and to engage them in the international market actively.

Manager Ahn Seck Jun of CJ E&M stated that “ we plan to introduce not only idol bands but also various genre bands to Europe and other countries”

CEO Han Sung Ho, of FNC, management agency of CNBLUE and FTISLAND showed his confidence “ Although there is pressure to extend our career overseas, right into the home of band music, on the other hand, I  actually do expect this could happen. When I look at our band seniors (Editor’s Note: Those who had been in band music ahead of CNBLUE and FTISLAND), I am confident that Korean band music is not at all behind the world-class standard.

CJ E&M held a press conference for ‘M-Live’ at M-pop, Times Square in Yongdeungpo, Seoul on November 2, with six music entertainment companies participating: Cube Entertainment (G.NA, B2ST, 4MINUTE), Star Empire (Z:EA, Jewelry), Amoeba Culture (Dynamic Duo), FNC Music (CNBLUE, FTISLAND), Jungle Entertainment (Drunken Tire, Leessang) and J-Tune Entertainment (MBLAQ).
