More is more – especially when it comes to K-pop. It’s been awhile since we’ve had a K-pop music festival on our local shores. That’s about to change with SEEN Festival.
Concert organiser CM Live will be bringing a star-studded lineup to Kuala Lumpur this January. These K-pop acts include NCT Dream (엔시티 드림), WayV (威神V), KARD (카드) and ALICE (앨리스).
Dreams are coming true for fans of NCT DREAM as the boy group is set to perform at the festival. Made up of Mark, Renjun, Jeno, Haechan, Jaemin, Chenle and Jisung, they debuted under SM Entertainment in 2016 with the digital single “Chewing Gum” and turned heads with “My First and Last” and other hits. NCT DREAM made K-pop history when they became the youngest group to achieve million-seller status with their first full-length album “Hot Sauce”.
Joining the festival lineup is WayV, which stands for “We Are Your Vision”, a boy group formed by SM Entertainment. They debuted in 2019 with the digital single album “The Vision” and bagged the Best New Asian Artist Award at the Mnet Asian Music Awards that same year. Following their appearance at SMTOWN Live 2022 in August this year, they made a comeback with their fourth mini album “Phantom” in December.
Four-member co-ed group KARD, an abbreviation of different “cards” assigned to each member – BM with the “King” card, J.seph the “Ace”, Somin the “Black Joker” and Jiwoo the “Colour Joker”, debuted in late 2016 with the single “Oh NaNa” and subsequently made waves with Don’t Recall which gained huge popularity not only across Asia but also the Western world, denoting their star power across borders.
Also performing at the festival is the 7-member girl group ALICE which consists of Do-A, Yeonje, Yukyung, Sohee, Karin, EJ and Chaejeong who symbolise heart, wind, water, sky, forest, star and moon, respectively. ALICE made their debut in 2017 with the release of their first mini album “WE, first” and is known for their range of hits including “Pow Pow”, “Summer Dream”, “JACKPOT”, “Power Of Love” and “DANCE ON”.
