[News] M! Countdown to hold Japanese tour

Cable channel Mnet’s music ranking program, "M! Countdown", will be holding Japan concert tour in April.

According to Mnet on March 1st, the program will hold a large-scale concert, titled "M! Countdown Hello Japan" in Saitama Super Arena on April 25. The tour will be the third since the first concert in Tokyo in 2006 with artists such as Lee Hyori, TVXQ, and Shinhwa to mark the opening of Mnet Japan. The second concert was held in 2007 and toured Tokyo with artists Shin Seung Hoon, Big Bang and more.

Mnet will be joining forces with Japan's first and largest music channel, Space Shower TV, in order to create this music celebration event. Expectations are big for the synergy effect of Korea and Japan’s largest music channels coming to work together.

The "M! Countdown Hello Japan Tour" is a way for Mnet to repay the Japanese fans for all the love they have shown ‘M! Countdown’ since Mnet first established Mnet Japan in 2006. The tour boasts a diverse lineup for the first portion, currently including MBLAQ, F.T. Island and Supernova.

A representative of Mnet also hinted, "Please look forward to our secondary lineup, which will feature more artists popular in both Korea and Japan."

"M Countdown Hello Japan" will be broadcast not only in Korea, but various Asian regions through channels such as Mnet, Space Shower TV, Mnet Japan, tvN Asia and more.
