VeriVery, Epik High and Eric Nam, along with Ateez, NCT 127 and TWICE, are among the other well-known K-Pop acts to announce world tours
As the pandemic becomes more and more manageable, more and more personal events are taking place. We had theater openings and games with a live audience. We also have groups like BTS that play standalone offline concerts and award shows that invite K-pop artists to perform when the year comes to an end. In fact, South Korea was one of the first countries to get over the pandemic quickly and return everyday life to near-normal. The K-pop industry was also the least affected, as artists continued to release their music and promote it in shows. We also had select offline fan signs and pop-up stores for albums and merchandise. Now three big K-pop acts, Ateez, NCT 127 and TWICE have announced world tours.
As early as September, BTS announced concerts overseas as one of the first K-Pop artists. You are planning a 4-day concert in LA with further dates and cities in the works. We also had groups like P1Harmony promoting their film in the US, while Monsta X was invited to iHeartRadio’s third jingle ball tour. VeriVery, Epik High and Eric Nam have announced world tours while The Boyz have announced their first offline concert in 2 years. And now we have confirmed dates for Ateez, NCT 127 and TWICE’s upcoming world tour.

Eric Nam announces world tour as K-pop groups resume offline shows, fans “bless” him
Ateez had an online concert for the first time on November 14th for the fan club anniversary. After the success of the “Ateez XR Show” [Fever: eXtended edition]’, the K-pop group had a little more in store for fans. At the end of the concert, Ateez announced that they would have their second world tour. Her second world tour was originally scheduled to take place in 2020, and rumors raged last month that the time had finally come. Well, fans don’t have to wait anymore. Ateez announced ‘The community: the beginning of the end‘. It begins in Seoul with a 3-day concert on January 7, 2022. They then make five stops in the USA, followed by the European tour in February.
While fans lamented NCT 127’s absence in early 2021, members are now busier than ever. They have had consecutive comebacks for the past two months, followed by the announcement of a full group comeback. NCT 2021 is expected to come back on December 14th with their third album “Universe”. But it doesn’t look like the NCT 127 members will have time to breathe as they will begin the domestic leg of their second world tour on December 17th ‘Neo City: Seoul The Link‘. It will be a three-day concert in Seoul, with the third day also being broadcast live on the YES24 platform. Tickets will go on sale on November 19th. Her second world tour was originally supposed to take place in June 2020 before it was canceled with planned concerts in the USA. So we can expect them to revive those plans as soon as the international leg of their tour begins.
