K-Pop and K-Drama Concert WAPOP Is Back with Season 2


Soompiers, mark your calendars! WAPOP is back with season 2.

The committee behind WAPOP, which stands for World & Asia + WOW POP, shared the same sentiments with the rest of the entertainment world by temporarily shutting down the concert as a way to pay respects to the victims of the Sewol ferry tragedy.

WAPOP began its weekly Saturday performances last year in October, promoting Hallyu dramas, K-Pop, Korean traditional instruments, and special performances, opening the gates to a new type of collaborative stage.

The second season ushers in an upgraded performance experience for the attendees with the addition of a K-Pop cover segment and stages with more recent dramas like “My Love From the Star.” Some of the performers scheduled for August include Son Dam Bi, After School and its sub-group Orange Caramel, Boys Republic, NU’EST, Dal Shabet, and ToppDogg. Special guests like TaeTiSeo and Super Junior will make special appearances, although exact dates are yet to be scheduled. The concert will run three times a week (Sunday, Tuesday, Friday).

WAPOP season 2 will open on August 8 at 8 p.m. Stay tuned to Soompi and Soompi Shop on how you can purchase tickets and get a chance to meet the K-Pop stars!

Update 8/8: The boy group that will be performing is Boys Republic, not BTS.
