Korean Pop has recently expanded to become popular not just in the Asian market, but globally as well. Of course, BTS is the most famous K-pop group in the world right now, but there are so many other talented pop stars as well. For instance, EXO, Monsta X, NCT, BlackPink, Twice, and Red Velvet are all hugely popular. Dy & I think the first singer who introduced K-Pop music to the world was Psy and his song Gangnam Style. People loved his exciting song and mimicked the unique dance. I hope we can see another exciting mega-hit song and dance soon. 🙂 Needless to say, there is a ton of intriguing experience-programs in Seoul to enjoy K-Pop because it’s the original epicenter!
Let’s meet Korean Pop Stars on stage and have a fantastic experience to be like one of them through K-Pop Tour Programs.
Disclaimer: To introduce K-Pop tour programs, I searched for two travel booking sites, Klook & Trazy. This post includes our affiliate links.
