The 2011 Billboards K-Pop Masters was run by Billboard Korea and MGM and supported by Korean Air. The event was held to celebrate the launching of the Billboard K-Pop chart.
Since this was the first time for Korean singers to perform in Las Vegas, the event drew a lot of attention. And to celebrate the worldwide popularity of the Korean Wave, Las Vegas set November 25 as K-Pop Day. This is the first time any country or city has set aside a day for a specific musical genre.
