Rookie girl group Kep1er to join fan community Universe
Rookie girl group Kep1er is the latest addition to the global fandom community Universe.
Mobile game publisher NCSoft, which is behind the platform, confirmed the news on Friday. The girl group will open a new “planet” — a separate virtual space within Universe through which fans can communicate with the group — on Dec. 10. The group will also actively participate in the Universe’s various original content, as well as online and offline fan meets.
Kep1er, which was created through cable channel Mnet’s global audition show “Girls Planet 999” this summer, will make its official debut on Dec. 14 with its album “First Impact.”
A total of 31 artists, including Kep1er, are currently active on the platform such as solo artists Kang Daniel, Park Ji-hoon, Hur Young-ji, boy bands The Boyz, Monsta X, Astro, CIX, SF9 and girl groups Brave Girls, Weki Meki, IZ*ONE, (G)-IDLE and Oh My Girl.
