K-pop legends SUPER JUNIOR interact with fans through an online talk show, saying how they wish they could see them face-to-face in the near future.
It's the final live-stream of 'MOKKOJI Korea' a global Hallyu mega event laid on by the Korean Foundation for International Cultural Exchange.
“‘Mokkoji’ is a Korean term meaning ‘gathering for a party or to play’. Due to the pandemic, the foundation has set up an interactive online platform for fans around the world to experience Korean lifestyle and culture with K-pop megastars.”
Fifteen K-pop idols and groups have been streaming live every Tuesday since last October, with SUPER JUNIOR being the grand finale.
Aside from SUPER JUNIOR's recent show, among all the videos that garnered great attention from global fans was 'The Boyz' making masks for men and women.
"The video racked up more than a million views, and the number of viewers watching live topped 280-thousand. This is like the amount a K-pop star could expect doing six shows at a big dome."
After the show,. around 500 fans made their own masks and uploaded pictures of them to their social media.
With the videos showing more about Korean lifestyle and its consumer goods, the organizers say the global attention could help South Korean companies sell their products abroad.
"Attention on K-pop and K-dramas can touch broader parts of Korean culture like beauty, fashion and food. We hope international fans that enjoyed this event will become more interested in Koreans' lifestyles and our country's well-made consumer goods."
The online platform will allow global fans to enjoy a variety of contents on Korean culture until January 31st.
Another installment of the event will take place in the summer.
