Anyway, we’ve been getting some coverage of Block B’s European tour in European news outlets (along with the expected coverage in Korean and K-Pop outlets). Interestingly enough, this time around we didn’t get coverage (at least not that I could find) in Finland. I assume that’s because Block B is less novel there now.
They are still new in other countries, so there was a story in Amsterdam’s Metro before the show that was focused on K-Pop and its growing popularity there. In Lisbon, My Sound ran a photo of the concert with a blurb about the group, as well as K-Pop’s growing popularity there. (…I sense a theme…) And Sabado did a piece that focused on the enthusiasm of the fans but largely managed to avoid making them sound like a pack of lunatics, which is always good.

Traffic remains elevated, and it’s a lot of focus on the Links page, which I hope means that people are getting plugging into all the social media and the fanbases and generally LETTING BLOCK B TAKE OVER THEIR BRAINS. It’s well worth it.
