Boy band NCT 127 will become the first K-pop group to perform at the MTV Europe Music Awards (EMAs), SM Entertainment announced on Tuesday.

According to the agency, NCT 127 will be taking the stage in Seville, Spain, on Nov. 3 for the 2019 MTV EMAs as the invited guests.

“Pop superstar Dua Lipa will be joining the 2019 main show performer lineup along with some new faces to the MTV EMA: Seoul-based global pop powerhouse NCT 127,” MTV said.

“Dua Lipa and NCT 127 join previously announced performers Niall Horan, Halsey, Rosalia, EMA show host Becky G, Akon, Ava Max and Mabel. Iconic rock act Green Day, The Struts and Leon Benavente will also perform from Seville’s spectacular Plaza de Espana as a part of ‘MTV World Stage Seville.’”
