The 4th Asia Song Festival, held on the 22nd, is suffering from its serious aftermath. The objective of the event to collaborate Asia's culture through music is lost.

The problem started with the ignorance toward international singers. For this concert, total of 13 artists from 9 different Asian countries came to Korea. Japan's Kuraki Mai, China's Zoe mi, Phillippine's Barbie Almalbis and Thailand's Golf & Mike are all extremely popular stars in their home country.

In Korea, however, they had to be treated as nobody because majority of the teenagers that occupied most seats did not know who they were. They were girls who have come to cheer for artists like DBSK and FT Island.

"It was so annoying to listen to the songs of singers that I didnt know. But I waited patiently to see DBSK perform," "Do you think I'll cheer for singers that I've never heard of in my life for 4 hours? If it wasn't for DBSK, I'd never have gone to this boring event."...

DBSK might be the reason to attend this event for 4 years in a row. It also was the reason for DBSK to perform last. During FT Island's performance, a portion of fans left the stadium.

But we can't blame it all on the fans. The representatives that did not properly explain the meaning of the event is also at fault. It is necessary to think carefully about what teens demand of Korea's music market.

Dispute among few fan clubs is further polluting the meaning of the event. DBSK fans are in rage claiming that FT Island fans have ripped apart their support banners. Due to this, there was a commotion at the event. DBSK fans are planning to carry out a lawsuit against FT Island fans if FT Island fans do not apologize.

Asia Song Festival is a rare chance to directly listen to foreign music in Korea. There are many active supporters for this event.

However, the concert that is populated with teenage fans is no different from music shows aired on television. If the foreign top stars continue to be mere ornaments, there is no future for Asian music exchange.

There is a suggestion to limit the ticket sales to certain audience members for next year's 5th festival.
