Until recently, most K-pop concerts took place online due to the protracted COVID-19 pandemic. But following the government's June 11 announcement that sporting and entertainment events can now have up to 4,000 attendees ― up from the previous limit of 99 ― starting from June 14, organizers are now gearing up to bring performers back for live performances.
K-pop girl group WJSN, also known as Cosmic Girls, is scheduled to hold a fan meeting titled, "Welcome to WJSN's House," July 10 and perform in front of 350 fans at the YES24 Live Hall in Gwangjin District, Seoul. The event is organized by online game developer NC SOFT and its subsidiary, KLAP, which recently launched the fan community platform, "Universe" that features a myriad of K-pop stars, including (G)I-DLE, Kang Daniel, Monsta X and WJSN.
"We expect to see the fans going wild this time as the upcoming event is offline-only," the company said in a statement. "We will make sure to express a sense of realism for the audience."
On July 17 and 18, boy band Golden Child is poised to stage its "Summer Breeze" concerts at the Blue Square Mastercard Hall in central Seoul, performing in front of massive crowds after almost two years. According to the 10-piece act's management company, Woollim Entertainment, the event will also be livestreamed.( Collapse )
