Recognized as a leading third-generation K-pop male group, MONSTA X has carefully curated a discography of hard-hitting singles and albums, attracting many fans worldwide. The Korean group is known for viral tracks such as “Beautiful Liar,” “Play It Cool” with Steve Aoki, “Crescendo,” and, most recently, “Deny,” which catapulted onto the Billboard Hot Trending Songs list.
Their latest EP, “REASON,” released in January 2023, saw all six songs reach the top ten on the Billboard charts. The award-winning group has performed in several festivals and international concerts across Europe, Asia, and South & North America, with Las Vegas earlier this year.
As well as being the only band from Korea to release two albums entirely in English, their hit songs, “WHO DO U LOVE?”, “One Day” and “YOU CAN’T HOLD MY HEART” made MONSTA X the only K-pop band besides BTS to have three or more Top 40 U.S. pop singles.
This performance also marks a comeback with group leader SHOWNU, fresh from his stint in the Korean military and will showcase MONSTA X members as a duo with members SHOWNU and HYUNGWON.
Debuting on December 1, 2021, IVE has become the face of 4th generation K-Pop girl groups. Their debut single, “Eleven,” has amassed 193 million music video views and 234 million streams on Spotify. The sextet is known for their viral hits “LOVE DIVE,” “After LIKE,” and “Kitsch,” which have all taken social media by storm and created several TikTok trends.
Their most recent album, ‘I’ve IVE,’ topped the Circle Album Chart with nearly 1.5 million units sold in its first week. Including ‘I’ve IVE,’ all of the group’s single albums — “Eleven,” “Love Dive,” and “After Like” — have hit No. 1 on the Circle Album Chart. IVE’s success extends into other industries, including fashion, editorial, variety shows, emceeing, and more.
AB6IX debuted in 2019 under Brand New Music, consisting of members Woong, Donghyun, Woojin, and Daehwi. The group made a strong debut with their first EP titled “B: Complete” in 2019, which topped various music charts in South Korea, with the lead single, “Breathe,” garnering 22 million views. Their “B: Complete” album sold over 200,000 copies leading them to win “Rookie of the Year,” “Best Icon Award,” and “Next Generation Artist Award” in 2019.
AB6IX has gained a strong following both domestically and internationally and has embarked on successful international tours and festivals in various countries, including the United States, Europe, and Asia and an upcoming world tour.
Making her name as the Leader, Main Dancer, and Lead Vocalist of IZ*ONE, jack of all trades Kwon Eun Bi is making her U.S. debut with a bang. Making her solo introduction with EP “OPEN” in 2021, the album topped the iTunes Top K-pop Album Chart in Hong Kong and Singapore, top three in 17 countries, and all six tracks on the album were listed in the top 20 of Korea’s major music site Bugs.
