Experience the best of K-Pop in I AM: SMTOWN Live World Tour in Madison Square Garden! The configuration is DVD (4 discs) and Blu-ray (1 disc) and it lands November 6 from CJ Entertainment America.
Once outside the mainstream American music spotlight, K-pop (or Korean pop) is now a sensation not only on the U.S. scene but globally, led by such enormously popular acts as SMTOWN superstars Kangta, BoA, TVXQ!, Super Junior, Girls' Generation, Shinee and F(X).
Included in I AM: SMTOWN Live World Tour in Madison Square Garden is the full-length, sold-out 2011 U.S. concert (approx. 2 ¾ hours) at one of the world's most-hallowed music arenas and a feature-length documentary (approx. 2 hours) highlighted by exclusive, backstage footage. Plus special features (approx. 45 minutes.)
I AM: SMTOWN ventures behind the scenes, providing intimate and unprecedented access to these mega-hit acts – doe-eyed girl groups, high-octane boy bands, provocative solo artists and swaggering duos – sharing their personal memories and backstage antics, as well as never-before-seen peeks at youthful audition tapes.
Pulling influences from techno, hip-hop, rap, R&B and top-40, the tour is highlighted by effervescent music; high-energy performances with a dance pop sensibility; teasing choreography; trend-setting high fashion; and elaborate, futuristic staging.
A must for any fan! And if you haven't already been hit by hallyu (Korean wave, a term coined to describe the rapidly expanding, international popularity of South Korean culture and food), you will be after experiencing the no-boundaries music of SMTOWN.
I AM: SMTOWN (Korean with English subtitles) is presented in widescreen 16x9 (aspect ratio: 2:35.1) and 5.1 Dolby Digital.
Where my K-Pop fans at? This DVD is a "must own" if you are a K-Pop lover!
