With support from Korea’s Ministry of Science, YG and Next Interactive K Korea (NIK) opened the digital theme park “PLAY K-POP,” where cutting-edge ICT combines with Hallyu in Quzhou, China, on Monday.
During the concert, various songs from YG’s star musicians’ will be performed, including Big Bang’s “Fantastic Baby,” 2NE1’s “I’m the Best” and Psy’s “Gangnam Style.”
Along with enjoying the cutting-edge facilities, the audience will also be able to attend an analog exhibition, where costumes and props worn by the musicians will be displayed.
In addition to the complex, which is 1,500 square meters (16,145 square feet) in size, YG and NIK will carry on expanding in China by launching a theater-type hologram concert at Beijing Olympic Stadium by late May. They also plan to expand to other regions, including Japan and Southeast Asian countries.
YG Entertainment first held a hologram concert featuring likenesses of its musicians at Everland, a theme park in Yongin, Gyeonggi, in July 2013.
The last time the agency held a hologram concert, “Klive,” was in April in Dongdaemun District, central Seoul.
