Synopsis: Once outside the mainstream American music spotlight, K-pop is now a sensation not only on the U.S. scene but globally, led by such enormously popular acts as SMTOWN superstars KANGTA, BoA, TVXQ!, Super Junior, Girls’ Generation, SHINee and f(x).

Included in I AM: SMTOWN Live at Madison Square Garden is the full-length (2 hours 45 min.), sold-out 2011 U.S. concert at one of the world’s most-hallowed arenas and a feature-length documentary highlighted by exclusive, backstage footage.

I AM: SMTOWN ventures behind the scenes, providing intimate and unprecedented access to these mega-hit acts – doe-eyed girl groups, high-octane boy bands, provocative solo artists and swaggering duos – sharing their personal memories and backstage antics, as well as never-before-seen peeks at youthful audition tapes.

Pulling influences from techno, hip-hop, rap, R&B and top-40, the I AM: SMTOWN U.S. tour is highlighted by effervescent music; high-energy performances with a dance pop sensibility; teasing choreography; trend-setting high fashion; and elaborate, futuristic staging.   A must for any fan! And if you haven’t already been hit by hallyu (Korean wave, a term coined to describe the rapidly expanding, international popularity of South Korean culture and food), you will be after experiencing the no-boundaries music of SMTOWN.
