K-pop group SuperM makes global debut in Hollywood
The seven-man band performed songs from their first mini album, held a live Q&A segment and visited their pop-up store as part of their packed schedule.
The latest K-pop boyband, SuperM, made its debut on Oct 5 in Los Angeles and they certainly made an impression.
Baekhyun, Kai, Taeyong, Mark, Ten, Lucas and Taemin performed three songs – I Can’t Stand The Rain, Super Car and Jopping – from their first mini album at the legendary Capitol Records Building in Hollywood. The performance was punctuated by the group’s slick dance moves, high-energy music and a dazzling light show.
Hundreds of screaming fans were in attendance while the event was also livestreamed on YouTube to fans at home.
It was the first time the seven-man band – touted as the Avengers of K-pop because they’re made up of members from other popular groups EXO, NCT127, WayV and SHINee – had performed together.
The band had a slew of activities before the big show, including a 30-minute live Q&A segment in both Korean and English and a visit to their pop-up store in LA.
The group also announced its first North American tour called We Are The Future, which will kick off on Nov 11 at Fort Worth, Texas.
During the interview segment, they answered questions such as the dynamics of the group, to which Ten said it was a dream come true for him to work alongside his idol Taemin.
Band leader Baekhyun also shared the group’s goal, which is “to be the pioneers of K-pop and bring K-pop to the next level.”
