At a time when concerts all around the world have been cancelled and music venues remain shuttered, Airbnb is lifting the veil on the Korean pop music industry with an unprecedented look behind the scenes of K-pop, transporting viewers to the streets of Seoul and giving them a chance to interact with major artists, starts in training and a number of creative talent in the K-pop industry.
"Inside K-Pop" is the latest addition to Airbnb's Experiences and is a six-day festival in celebration of K-pop which will run from January 25–30 KST, featuring 14 unique online experiences offered in English, Korean, Chinese or Japanese.
The festival boasts a star-studded line-up, hosted by chart-topping idols like Monsta X and in partnership with Warner Music Korea. The online experiences include dance rehearsals, vocal practice, make-up tutorials to photoshoot tips and if you're dreaming of becoming a K-pop star, you'll also get some first-hand rigorous training. You'll also get the chance to see a rare glimpse of K-pop idols or trainees, when they're making beaded bracelets, chatting with other stars as they mukbang (eating in front on an audience) and so on. Each experience is priced at US$20 each and available for booking from January 21 at 8 am KST on a first-come-first-served basis at airbnb.com/insidekpop.
