Since it’s opening, Dubai’s Coca-Cola Arena has hosted concerts and shows by artists from all around the world and is now gearing up to embrace the K-Pop genre. Veteran South Korean boyband Super Junior will soon be making their way to Dubai to perform at the venue’s K-Pop Super Concert on March 20. Joining them is a lineup of other popular South Korean groups like NCT 127, girl group Laboum and singer Lee Jun-Young.

Commenting on the concert and their trip to the Kingdom band member Siwon had said, “We are the first South Korean band to perform here in Saudi Arabia and I am so proud to be performing here”.

Known for being South Korea’s best selling artists for four years in a row, Super Junior has received multiple award and accolades throughout their career. To name a few, they have received 13 Mnet Asian Music Awards, 19 Golden Disk Awards and have won the award of Best International Artist and Best Fandom at the Teen Choice Awards in 2015.
