‘Oneiric Theater’: IZ*ONE dazzles in 1st online concert

"Oneiric Theater', the first online concert of 12-member South Korean-Japanese girl group IZ*ONE, truly delivered on the promise of a unique virtual experience powered by AR (augmented reality) and XR (extended reality).
We are still recovering from IZ*ONE’s stunning rendition of Red Velvet – Irene & Seulgi’s “Monster” in “Oneiric Theater”. How about you?

“Oneiric Theater’, the first online concert of 12-member South Korean-Japanese girl group IZ*ONE, truly delivered on the promise of a unique virtual experience powered by AR (augmented reality) and XR (extended reality).

More than the virtual effects, however, it was the real talent of all 12 members that shone through. They took their fans — dubbed WIZ*ONE — on a magical journey across different thematic stages, performing tracks not just from their comeback EP “Oneiric Diary”, but also their previous albums.

IZ*ONE (pronounced as “EYEZ-wun”), also delighted viewers by showing new sides of themselves and unveiling wonderful surprises in “Oneiric Theater”, including sub-unit stages, a jaw-dropping dance break, a live band, and a game show segment called Quizland.

And, of course, an absolutely stunning cover of Red Velvet – Irene & Seulgi’s “Monster”.
