Laotians welcome Paran with open arms

Korean quintet Paran held a showcase concert in Vientiane, Laos on April 5 and they were a hit with the Laotians!

Annyeonghaseyo Laos!: The Paran boys greet, meet and actually play their
music for their Laotian fans.

The Paran boys set a record by being the first male foreign group to attract a whopping 10,000 fans to a show. Sweet, no Korean vs. local organisers disagreement there. How nice.

The event, which was in celebration of mobile phone operator, Tigo’s first anniversary, will be televised on Lao Star TV.

It is also reported that Laotians love their Thai TV shows, but judging by the ardent show of love and support at Paran’s performance, the Korean Wave looks set to sweep Laotians off their feet.

Fans were frantically taking photos of the group, waving pics of the boys in the air, screaming their lungs out and blowing sweet kisses at Paran.

Do we have readers from Laos? Were you one of the lucky ones to see Paran live?

Paran trying to be the Korean boyband that takes Southeast Asia by storm-- since record sales in Korea are so poor, there are still parts of the world that buy music? ehehe I'm proud of them. Right behind DBSK they're way up the list of my favorite boybands. Their music is awesome too!
