The concert will feature bands EXO-SC, NCT 127, Elris, ACE, and Alphabat. Among them, EXO-SC with Chanyeol and Sehun and NCT 127 were founded and managed by SM Entertainment, one of the RoK’s biggest showbiz firms.

Lee Taemin, the main artist of SHINee, will perform hits from solo albums such as Ace (2014), Press It (2016), Move (2017) and Want (2019). He won the Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) award for Best Dance Performance in both 2016 and 2017.

Young and talented Vietnamese singers Dong Nhi and Toc Tien will also perform.

The concert aims to celebrate the 27th anniversary diplomatic ties between Vietnam and the Republic of Korea (RoK) and was organised by Radio the Voice of Vietnam (VOV), Vietnam’s To&Ro Media Company and the RoK’s Sublime Entertainment Company.

Ngo Minh Hien, VOV Deputy General Director, said the concert aims to provide a venue for K-Pop fans to enjoy performances of their favourite singers while boosting cooperation between Vietnam and the RoK through music.

“In recent months, fan clubs of the Korean artists have shown their enthusiasm for the concert,” said Hien. “This is the first big concert of the new year, we are sure that audiences are eager to see their idols performing on the stage.”

“It’s not easy to invite many singers and bands from Korea to perform together. We have attempted to host the concert professionally with high quality in art.”

Kim Hyo-jae from Sublime said the company has worked with VOV in many events and have a good relationship.

“We tried to strengthen the understanding and connection. It’s the key to collaborating successfully,” he said.

“With our efforts, we expect that the concert will leave a good impression among Vietnamese and international audiences.”
