Say What?! K-Pop in 30! (2/7/12)

Today, I'd like to try something different with my K-Pop posts. Because I've been so busy lately, I cannot keep up with K-Pop news very often. Therefore, on a random day like this, I read as many news articles I could from allkpop.com within 30 minutes. Whatever news feed made me reply "Say what?!" ends up here.

Friends, I bring you "Say What?! K-Pop in 30!" for February 7, 2012.

Big news for VIPs!
Big Bang will be holding their first concert tour, called "Alive Tour 2012" this year through Live Nation. The group will make various stops at 25 cities in 16 countries including Asia, North America, South America, and Europe. YG Entertainment not only is excited to introduce Big Bang across the globe, but they are positive that fans will witness Big Bang's "maturity and skill."

'New Breed' is a new trend...

'The Boys' will be released in France!

Music Bank in Paris will take place on February 8. The show will be attended by SNSD, 4minute, B2ST, SISTAR, T-ara, U-KISS, 2PM, and SHINee.

Well there you have it...this was some of the best news I collected today under a 30 minute time limit (which is the most I can do in a day). My apologies to anyone who I disappointed for not reporting any current events involving your favorite idol(s). I have only scratched the surface as there are lots of exciting K-Pop news in a day.
