Interview with GFRIEND and Lee Soo Man
This makes it very obvious for the BBC to be interested in and making a documentary about it. GFRIEND gave an interview to the BBC recently after the latter contacted them about making a documentary about K-Pop. K-Pop has gained a lot of popularity in the last few years.
The girl group, GFRIEND talked on behalf of all Korean artists and shared some intimate stories about their work and methods of practicing. Apart from this, BBC also interviewed Lee Soo Man.
The Founder of SM Entertainment, he is the most influential music producer in the K-Pop industry. He is credited with the discovery and growth of many artists who are now big names. Some of them are H.O.T, SNSD, SHINee, EXO, etc.

Insights from the Interview
After the interview, presenter James Ballardie said:
Such an honor to meet with general producer Lee Soo Man – who conducted the greatest and most creative exploration in contemporary music. His vision on K-pop proved ideas can possess the power to completely change a nation. I’m so surprised.
Producer Martin Stevens also had a few words to share about the experience.
I have met the general producer Lee Soo Man – who plays the most important role in the birth and development of Kpop. To be able to conduct an interview with him is very meaningful. Without a doubt, general producer Lee Soo Man’s understanding ability will probably provide an interesting view to TV audiences in England.
The documentary will be out in the next few months and will be available worldwide.
