[The Chosun Ilbo, August 1 2008] New Korean Pop Culture Wave Hits China

Some 1,700 Chinese fans of the Korean Wave packed seats of a concert co-produced by Korea's CJ Entertainment and Chinese CCTV, as part of the “Meet in Beijing” cultural event recently organized by Beijing authorities.

Gracing the concert were five Korean teams, including balladeer Shin Seung-hun, sexy Chae Yeon, pop idols Battle and nine Chinese teams, including national singer Sun Nan and Taiwanese vocalist Zhou Huajian. The event climaxed when singers and the audience sang the 1988 Seoul Olympic theme song “Hand in Hand” and “Beijing Huan Yin Ni (Beijing Welcomes You)”, written to mark D-100 of the Beijing Olympics.
