Attention, K-pop fans! Monsta X, iKon, Kang Daniel, AKMU, Apink, and more will perform today, May 25, at 4 PM Philippine Standard Time. Dubbed as “TikTok Stage Live From Seoul”, this will be the first of two free K-pop concerts from TikTok.
TikTok is launching these live vertical-format K-pop concerts for the first time. These free concerts are part of its coordinated COVID-19 relief efforts around the world. The second concert, “TikTok Stage With HIPHOPPLAYA”, will be held on May 27, 7 PM Philippine Standard Time. The May 27 lineup includes Jay Park, Zico, Epik High, Crush and Dean, and more superstars. For every viewer who tunes in to the free K-pop concerts, TikTok will donate US$0.50. All funds raised will go towards supporting charity efforts for those most affected by COVID-19.
“We’re grateful for all the artists and entertainers who use TikTok to connect with their fans, and can’t wait until we can see them live on stage again. Till then, we’re committed to connecting our community and fans with these massively talented acts from home — all while doing our part to aid COVID-19 relief efforts,” said John Castro, User and Content Operations Manager, TikTok Philippines, in a press statement.
