K-pop groups BTS, SuperM and more are streaming online events in light of COVID-19.
Many K-pop concerts, tours and events have been cancelled due to the global COVID-19 situation, leaving many fans feeling disappointed.
K-pop supergroup BTS had to reschedule their South Korean and North American concert dates for their Map Of The Soul tours, while many other K-pop artists had their fan meeting events cancelled.
Lucky for us, BTS announced on Apr 9 that they will be streaming a marathon of their past concerts online – for free!
Besides BTS’ highly anticipated livestream happening this weekend, here are three other K-pop online events you can enjoy at home.
South Korean boy band BTS announced on Twitter that they will be livestreaming their past concerts, allowing fans to relive their concert experiences at home.
Titled Bang Bang Con, fans can connect their light sticks to the livestream, as though they are watching a “real” concert at home!
Rookie group MCND from TOP Media has made a comeback with a new song, ‘Spring’.
As with most K-pop groups’ comebacks, they will be organising an online fansign to promote their new song.
Happening on Apr 27, the online fansign is also open to international fans, unlike most fansign events that are usually more accessible to Korean fans.
Although fans will have to buy the group’s Ice Age album to stand a chance to win a fansign slot, this fansign will be a special opportunity for international fans to interact with the members.
Check out this tweet for more details.
SM Entertainment has collaborated with Naver, Korea’s biggest search engine, to develop a new platform for digital concerts on V Live, a live-streaming app commonly used by K-pop artists.
The entertainment agency’s newest boy group, SuperM, will have the honour of being the first performers on the new platform, ‘Beyond LIVE’.
It is expected that the new platform will feature real-time comments and also digital light sticks, so get ready to relive a concert experience with SuperM!

Gugudan member Sejeong has been organising online fansigns to promote her first solo album, Plant.
Her upcoming online fansign on Apr 17 will be the last event for her album promotions.
50 lucky fans will be able to join the fansign, and international fans can stand a chance to participate if they buy her album through YES24. Check out Gugudan’s official tweet if you would like to participate!
To all K-pop fans who have been looking forward to seeing their idols, hang in there and attend these online events instead while staying safe at home!
