HCM CITY – Korean pop star Sunmi and boy band Seventeen will perform in a South Korean and Vietnamese exchange concert in HCM City later this month.
The 26-year-old Sunmi will sing her latest hits Gashina and Siren, while the 13-member Seventeen will present songs from their fifth extended play (EP) You Make My Day.
They will share the stage with Vietnamese pop stars Noo-Phước Thịnh and Hương Tràm, and singers Bảo Anh, Khởi My and Monstar band.
Sunmi debuted as a member of girl group Wonder Girls in 2007, and left the group in 2010.
The 26-year-old singer began her solo career in 2013, but only rose to fame this year after releasing single Gashina in August, and Siren, a lead single of her second EP titled Warning in September.
Both singles are at the top positions on music charts in South Korea.
Seventeen, which was formed in 2015 with 13 members, has released two studio albums and five EPs.
Their second EP Boys Be in 2014 earned the group awards at the Golden Disk Awards, Seoul Music Awards and Gaon Chart K-Pop Awards.
The group performed in the 1st Asia Tour 2016 “Shining Diamonds”, and the 2017 Seventeen 1st World Tour “Diamond Edge”.
Seventeen came to HCM City in 2017 to perform at a concert promoting the South Korean-based Mnet Asian Music Awards.
They are now promoting their fifth EP during the Ideal Cuts tour in Korea and several other Asian countries.
The concert will begin at 8 pm on October 26 at Hòa Bình Theatre in District 10. – VNS
