TOMORROW X TOGETHER are a five-member boy group which debuted in 2019 to huge fanfare, as the first group from Big Hit Music following the ascension of worldwide superstar group BTS. Since then, TOMORROW X TOGETHER have surpassed those ambitious expectations: all seven of their albums have charted on the Billboard 200, with their latest effort The Name Chapter: TEMPTATION (2023) debuting at No.1.

Five-piece girl group ITZY also landed in 2019 and set the tone for the next generation of K-Pop girl groups. Their debut single Dalla Dalla (2019) was the best-performing girl group track of the year in South Korea by any metric, earning them their first Platinum certification within nine months.

THE BOYZ is an onstage powerhouse, consisting of 11 members and a range of performancestyles that allow the boy group to effortlessly portray a range of musical genres and visualconcepts. After their successful show at London’s OVO Arena Wembley in 2022, they’rereturning to a bigger stage and what’s sure to be a bigger crowd, following the exponentialgrowth of their popularity over the last year.

WEi debuted in 2020 and immediately earned their spot as one of K-Pop’s vocal powerhouses.The six members have wielded their vocal range across a variety of concepts, with their mostrecent release, Love Pt.3 : Eternally (2023) taking the pop-dance route just in time for summer.

Billlie won the hearts of fans with their captivating performances and stage presence, whichwere polished and professional from the start. There was no adjustment period for the sevengirls of Billlie – their stage presence is simply unmatched, and will feel right at home on stage at London’s O2 Arena.

Yena’s K-Pop beginning was in super-girl group IZ*ONE, which was the first K-Pop girl group to ever reach 300,000 first-week sales. The group came to a natural end, but there’s no end insight for Yena, as she continues to break her own sales records with each release.

Five-member boy group ONEUS are often called ‘concept chameleons’ – they suit just about any style, from dreamy ballads to powerhouse performances with theatrical choreography.They’ve tried it all, and often come back to traditional Korean instruments and sonics, which makes them one of Korea’s national prides for spreading Korean culture around the world.

xikers debuted earlier this year under KQ Entertainment, the label behind the UK-chartinggroup ATEEZ. Named ‘super-rookies’ by NME, the 10-member boy group has already charmedfans with a fresh, charismatic energy.

ZEROBASEONE, despite a debut as recent as July 2023, are already making a name forthemselves in K-Pop. The nine members were selected via fan vote from 90 contestants onMnet’s reality competition Boys Planet (2023), and their fans show no signs of slowing downtheir support – the boy group’s first album YOUTH IN THE SHADE (2023) surpassed one million pre-orders, more than any other debut album in the history of K-Pop.

K-Pop, or Korean popular music, is one of the fastest-growing music genres globally, with theUK specifically seeing a 300% increase in listenership over the last three years. Once considered a niche genre, K-Pop artists are now comfortably sat alongside UK contemporaries, as seen with boy group ATEEZ’s latest album landing at No. 10 in the UK’s Official Charts; FiftyFifty earning the title earlier this year of longest-running K-Pop girl group on the UK SinglesChart; and BTS’ Jung Kook making K-Pop history with his No.3 UK Singles Chart success for Seven (2023).

As the demand for K-Pop increases, so do its festivals, concerts and tours, making the music and artists more accessible to UK fans than ever before.
