Special Performances Prepared for K-Pop All Star Concert in Japan


After holding a concert for 40,000 fans to boost tourism at Incheon on August 13th, K-Pop’s idols are headed to Niigata County in Japan for MBC’s “K-Pop All Star Live in Niigata” on Saturday, August 20th.

As earlier reported, the concert will feature groups that have begun, established or are currently active in the Japanese market.  In addition to the previously confirmed line-up, local news agencies reported on August 16th the special collaboration stages planned for the event: Kara and Infinite, 2PM and 2AM, and once-couple on “We Got Married,” CN Blue‘s Jung Yong Hwa and SNSD‘s Seohyun.  

The event will be hosted by SNSD members Sooyoung, Tiffany and Yuri.  Japan’s FujiTV will air the performances live while the recorded broadcast will also be aired over NHK.  MBC will air the concert in Korea over the Chuseok holiday.

“K-Pop All Star Live in Niigata” is held in support of reconstruction efforts for those affected by the March earthquake and tsunamis in Japan.  It is also part of MBC’s series of 50th anniversary celebrations, which began with a concert in Korea on January 12th and one in Bangkok on March 12th.
