With South Korea participating in the Tokyo Olympics 2020, the country’s cheering squad has incorporated their biggest asset. With the Hallyu Wave taking over the world and K-pop going global, K-pop idols have been performing for the Olympics to support their country’s participants. The same goes for this year as the Korean cheering squad Red Angels has introduced the lineup for the K-pop special concert ‘We All Are One’.

Initially, the ‘We All Are One’ concert was supposed to take place at the beginning of the Olympics on July 24. However, due to the sudden rise in Covid-19 cases, the schedule has been changed with everything going virtual. Here’s everything to know about the special concert with a star-studded lineup being held by the country’s cheering squad.

Going virtual

While the world has had better control over the global pandemic, it’s not completely gone. In fact, on July 18, two athletes living in the Olympic Village tested positive for Covid-19. An IOC (International Olympic Committee) member from South Korea too tested positive when he landed in Tokyo. 

There have also been cases of K-pop idols getting infected in Seoul since the last few weeks. While the show must go on, the glamour has been toned down and hence Olympic-related events like the K-pop concert will take place completely online. The performances will be held at the Handball Stadium in Seoul Olympic Park as decided but there will be no live audience. The whole show will be aired online.

The show will air on August 28 and 29 at 5 am ET.
