If you’d like to get a refund or exchange your tickets for another performance, please contact the location where you bought them.

Hyung of Spica and Keembo, Min Young Lee of Miss A, and Kevin Woo of U-KISS are among the K-pop stars featured in the play, which also features 19 company members making their Broadway debuts. Bringing the music and culture of South Korea to Broadway, KPOP tells the story of a group of K-pop superstars who are willing to put their careers on the line for a one-night-only concert despite the fact that they are each dealing with their own personal demons.
Choreographer Jennifer Weber, music director Sujin Kim-Ramsey, set designer Gabriel Hainer Evansohn, costume designers Clint Ramos and Sophia Choi, lighting designer Jiyoun Chang, sound designers Peter Fitzgerald and Andrew Keister, projection designer Peter Nigrini, hair and wig designer Mia M. Neal, and makeup artist Suki Tsujimoto all contributed to the production, which was directed by Teddy Bergman.

KPOP is the brainchild of Jason Kim and the Woodshed Collective and features a book written by Kim, music and lyrics written and performed by Kim and Helen Park, music production and arrangements by Park, and music and lyrics written and performed by Max Vernon.
