The Airplane Boys represent Canada at MU:CON Seoul 2012 [News]
Seoul, KR – Toronto duo The Airplane Boys represented Canada recently at MU:CON Seoul 2012, a conference which gathered international industry experts to discuss the international growth and promotion of Asian music. The conference came on the heals of Seoul artist PSY’s K-pop smash hit “Gangnam Style” surpassing 750 million views on YouTube and it has now surpassed 900 million. The hope is to build momentum off PSY’s success to introduce other Asian artists to International markets. In a strange twist of fate, PSY allegedly intended for “Gangnam Style” to be a parody of the K-pop genre and not the major contribution to the K-pop scene that it has turned out to be.
Meanwhile, The Airplane Boys took part in the conference’s massive live music showcase which featured over 80 acts. The artists were mostly from Korea but there was also representation from Taiwan (Elesha), Thailand (Thaitanium), Japan (Ai Takekawa), Singapore (Kewei), and Vietnam (Trang Phap).
