Kpop on the BBC...! it was on BBC Asia and it was broadcast from Singapore...but still!

This morning at exactly 05:01 am GMT (no, I wasn't awake for this, I was just mooching the website today and found it!), BBC Asia presented a piece titled "K-pop singer 'honoured' at the MTV awards" following 2NE1's success at the MTV awards in New York having been voted "New Band of the Year".

It included an interview, conducted in English, with the lead singer, CL, of 2NE1, a Korean pop girl group formed in 2009, as well as footage from the MV of the Japanese version of "I Am The Best" and also performance footage of "Fire".

CL answered a number of questions including where she believed the future lay for K-pop and it's appeal on a more global basis, particularly regarding the language barrier.

I was actually really pleased to see such coverage as it just goes to show how far the Hallyu wave is spreading. Congratulations to 2NE1 for their recent success and I can't wait to see what's coming next!
