For those of us who are staying at home currently and doing our part in protecting ourselves and those near and dear to us, there is much to do for entertainment. One of those things is looking back and reliving some amazing moments of the past. Today, let’s go by the amazing K-idols who visited India in the past year.
#1 IN2IT and AleXa
We started off with the ‘snapshot’ singers IN2IT way back in the heat of April. They wowed fans with their surprising affinity to Bollywood at their Mumbai concert, along with upcoming soloist AleXa, who released a new song ‘Do or Die’ this month. Fans were thrilled to see the sextet dance and sing to their famous tracks like ‘2U’, ‘Paradise’ and ‘Be Bop Baby’ along with fantastic covers of BTS, GOT7, EXO and even western artists such as Shawn Mendes, but the Highlight of the night was their collaborative performance with AleXa to the iconic ‘Bole Chudiya’.
Vamps were super excited to find out that their ultimate k-pop dream was coming true when A Team entertainment’s VAV announced their India tour back in May 2019. Starting off with a ‘Namaste’ at their meet and greet in Delhi and ‘vaving’ the crowds with ‘Thrilla Killa’ moves, vocals and rap at the two locations of Delhi and Imphal. You can also watch their India vlogs on their official youtube:
The four-member co-ed group graced the stage in the capital city of New Delhi and the city of Guwahati in the month of July last year. Everyone knows that India is a land of bops and Kard was here for it, with member J.Seph being a huge fan of Bollywood music, it wasn’t a surprise when they gave us an impeccable rendition of hit Indian song ‘bom diggy diggy’. Hiddens went ‘oh nana’ when they were finished and hoped the concert never ends.
#4 Jang Hanbyul
The former lead singer of LEDApple took the stage in three North-eastern cities in the month of July. He was met with a packed audience and much excitement through the shows. Along with Korean songs, he enthralled the crowd with a cover of Bruno Mars’ ‘When I was your Man’ and popular Bollywood song ‘Rabatta’.

The Hornbill festival or the festival of festivals is a prestigious event that takes place in Nagaland every year from Dec 1st to Dec 10th. Last year for the musical leg they decided to invite K-pop rookie group MustB and artist LiveYubin. The group performed their debut song ‘I want you’ accompanied with solo performances followed by LiveYubin’s melodic songs that the crowd cheerfully sang along to.
