Six K-pop groups are set to perform on this year’s NHK Kohaku Uta Gassen, one of Japan’s most prestigious television music programs, the most for K-pop groups to appear on the show.
The six artists are boy bands Seventeen, Stray Kids, girl groups Le Sserafim, a Twice subunit Misamo, NiziU and JO1, according to a report.
It will be Seventeen’s first appearance on the show since its Japan debut in May 2018, its agency Pledis Entertainment said Tuesday.
“We are delighted to make an appearance in the program for the first time,” members of Seventeen were quoted as saying in a press release.
“Making an appearance in Kohaku was one of our goals when we debuted in Japan,” they added. “Please look forward to our performance.”
Kohaku Uta Gassen is an annual New Year’s Eve special that began airing on television in 1953.
Seventeen is a boy band composed of 13 members: S.Coups, Jeonghan, Joshua, Jun, Hoshi, Wonwoo, Woozi, DK, Mingyu, The8, Seungkwan, Vernon and Dino.
The band debuted in May 2015 and is known for its hit songs like “Very Nice” (2016), “Left & Right” (2020), “Hot” (2022) and “Super.”
Seventeen achieved its eleventh No. 1 on both Japan’s Oricon weekly album chart in the fifth week of October this year and the Weekly Combined Album Chart with its 11th EP “Seventeenth Heaven.”
Seventeen will launch the “Seventeen ‘Follow’ The City” project in Japan, an urban park concert, with the “Seventeen Tour ‘Follow’ to Japan” in Tokyo, Saitama, Aichi, Osaka and Fukuoka, scheduled to end in December this year.
