The first-ever Broadway musical to celebrate Korean culture with Korean, Korean-American, and API representation on and off-stage, the show includes a star-studded cast of performers from the world of K-pop, including chart-topping superstar and lead Luna, BoHyung (from the K-pop group SPICA and half of the duo KEEMBO), Min (from the K-pop group Miss A), Kevin Woo (from the K-pop group U-KISS), and more.

Renowned Record Producer, Harvey Mason Jr. comments: "I am such a fan of this music and this musical! Having worked in the K-pop music space for over a decade, finally experiencing the music live on a Broadway stage has been so exciting. With the popularity and impact of this music, it's the perfect time for the KPOP show and the cast album."

KPOP, the new Broadway musical, stars K-pop super star Luna as MwE, at Circle in the Square Theatre. Directed by Teddy Bergman, KPOP features a book by Jason Kim; choreography by Jennifer Weber; music, lyrics, music production and arrangements by Helen Park; and music and lyrics by Max Vernon.
