The World’s First K-Pop Musical Is Debuting In New York And It’s Already Sold Out

K-Pop is coming to the stage thanks to a new ambitious theater production!

KPOP is a new theatrical event that is being described as “a high-octane immersive event that gives you a backstage pass to a K-pop music factory”.

The show is the idea of Woodshed Collective and Jason Kim (screenwriter on HBO’s Girls) and will also feature an extensive range of new original music.
