Next Stop: Kwangya
As the name of the event, as well as its teasers, indicates, one of the main themes is “Kwangya” (광야), which basically refers to a world from the SM Culture Universe where each artist has their own story and relationship to this kosmic place (yes, the k was intentional). The concept was first introduced by Aespa in 2020 and later developed by other artists such as NCT, NCT U, EXO. However, it is possible that in this edition of SMTown Live we will be able to have a greater explanation of this great dimension which, more than a creative concept, promises to be an experience on another level for audiences around the world.
The artists are already arriving at Kwangya, so while we wait for the concert we invite you to enjoy the dynamics that the artists are carrying out for their pink blood (SM fans) in this playlist by clicking HERE.
