Kpop Artists Wow Crowd at HK Asian-Pop Music Festival. Find Articles| News Articles, Magazine Back Issues and Reference Articles on All Topics. Manila Bulletin Publishing Corp. Web. 23 Nov. 2011.

<http://findarticles.com/p/news-articles/manila-bulletin/mi_7968/is_2011_March_28/popartists-wow-crowd-hk/ai_n57925900/?tag=content;col1>. This website talks about a K-pop festival, which was organized by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council and the International Federation of Phonographic Industry (Hong Kong). The organization wanted to showcase artists from the Asian region and promote Hong Kong as a center for pop music. During the event, a contest was held and participated in by artists from different Asian countries. This also shows that K-pop is now being a lot more global than it was before and raising worldwide awareness of its achievements. This information is certainly relatable to the thesis. The article is published by Manila Bulletin Corp; however there is no author present. This site does not have any political and religious leanings or special interest groups. The site has no sponsors as well. There are prejudice remarks towards East Asia as a whole, rather than Korea itself.

Jjl, SOo. Big Bang and 2NE1 Evolve the International Face of K-pop. Soompi Media. Web. 23 Nov. 2011. <www.soompi.com/news/big-bang-and-2ne1-evolve-the-international-face-of-kpop>. This website talks about how 2NE1 ( a Korean girl band) surpassed other global musicians at the MTV Iggy Awards that represented nine different countries such as America, Mexico, Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand, and Venezuela. Not only did fans from Korea pitch in to vote, but fans from all over the world made this possible for 2NE1. Most of 2NE1's votes came from America and the Philippines, not Korea. This information is surely significant to the thesis. The article is published by Soompi Media. The author is currently taking East Asian Studies. This site does not have any political/religious leanings or special interest groups. The

site has no sponsors as well. The site seems to be biased, seeing that it was written by an East Asian and has biased comments about Korean and international singers/bands.
