HCM CITY — The well-known girl band T-Ara of South Korea will perform at a music festival in HCM City tonight (January 17).
The band’s six members will sing for 20 minutes at the V-Live Year End Party 2016 at the 7th Military Zone Gymnasium.
The concert will feature seven members of NCT 127, one of Korea’s most popular boy bands, and Vietnamese boy band Monstar and young pop stars Noo Phước Thịnh and Tóc Tiên.
Young movie actors such as Chi Pu and Trương Quỳnh have also been invited to join the event.
The T-Ara band debuted in 2009 after spending three years of training with its producer, Core Contents Media.
Their first single called Lies left a very strong impression on audiences in Korea and other Asian countries. It later released Absolute First Album and spawned several hits including TTL (Time to Love), Bo Peep Bo Peep and I Go Crazy Because of You.
In 2011, T-Ara signed a US$4.3 million contract with J-Rock, a management company, for their Japanese debut.
One of their featured albums, Sugar Free, was released in 2012 before the band’s Asian promotional tour in Korea, Malaysia, Japan and Việt Nam.
At the only performance set for Việt Nam in 2013, the group performed its hits Time to Love, Roly Poly and Day by Day.
The V-Live Year End Party 2016 aims to bring Việt Nam and Korea together through music, according to Park Don Jin, a member of the concert’s organising board.
The event is expected to attract dozens of Korean and Vietnamese artists.
It will take place at 8pm tonight at 7th Military Zone Gymnasium, 202 Hoàng Văn Thụ Street, Tân Bình District. More than 13,000 people are expected to join the event. — VNS
