Idol group Super Junior is at the top of the Hallyu Wave amongst Arab fans.
KBS World Radio’s Arabic homepage recently ran an online popularity poll of Korean singers. The results placed Super Junior at the top, earning nearly 40% of the 26,122 netizen votes. Other top artists in the poll included TVXQ, ZE:A, and SNSD.
Arab fans have been making consistent international calls to KBS 2FM’s “Kiss the Radio” in an effort to converse with Super Junior. There has also been a recent case where six daughters from Saudi Arabia persuaded their father to take them to KBS2’s “Music Bank” in order to watch Super Junior take first place.
KBS World Radio has been acknowledging the Hallyu wave and created a special program for their Arabic broadcast to celebrate their 35th anniversary. A female college student was chosen out of 2,000 applicants to meet her ‘Bonamana’ idols personally in Korea on September 30th. KBS even allowed her the opportunity to MC the interview with Super Junior on “Korean Pop Interactive.”
The episode will broadcast on October 9th along with footage of the interview.
