KPOP, a brand-new musical inspired by the global musical K-pop phenomenon, makes history tonight as the first Broadway musical celebrating Korean culture with Korean, Korean-American, and API representation on and off-stage. The musical released its first previews yesterday evening (Oct. 13) before a November 20 opening at Circle in the Square Theatre (235 West 50th Street).

KPOP The Musical will certainly feature some familiar Broadway faces, like Julia Abueva, but will also serve as the debuting Broadway performance for others. Playing the starring role of MwE in KPOP, notable musical artist Luna will appear for the first time on Broadway this Fall.
