Five-member boy band SHINee will play for Korean fans again after a concert in Hong Kong last month. The band proved their ongoing popularity with the success of EP “Sherlock,” released in March. The group made their debut in May 2008 when they were all teenagers with the EP “Replay.”

B.A.P, a six-member hip-hop boy band, is garnering media attention as they are considered rising stars out of 30 new idol groups that debuted here this year. The band’s hit songs include “No Mercy” and “Warrior.”

Clover, a collaborative rap and hip hop group, will entertain the audience with recent hit “"La Vida Loca.” The group consists of Eun Ji-won from ‘90s hip hop boy band Sechs Kies, singer Gilme and rapper Tyfoon.
