2022 is an eventful year for Korean music fans in Vancouver. After a two-year hiatus, Korean music concerts are returning to Vancouver in full swing.
If you have missed Eric Nam’s tour and Epik High’s concert earlier this year, don’t worry, we rounded up a list of upcoming Korean music events in Vancouver so you can plan when to catch some top musical artists.
BTS Club night
If you are into K-Pop, you must know BTS, the seven-member group that achieved worldwide success over the past few years.
Last month, the group announced an “indefinite break” to focus on their solo projects. The heartbreaking news left millions globally in tears.
Instead of indulging in sadness, why not dance it out to your favourite BTS’ songs and express your love for the group with your fellow ARMYs through the night?
Featuring all things BTS, Vancouver’s first BTS Club Night offers a curated playlist full of hits, fan favourites and solo tracks, as well as BTS-themed drinks, giveaways and photo station.
When: July 24 from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m.
Where: Levels Nightclub, 560 Seymour St, Vancouver
Seventeen’s “Be the Sun” Tour
Seventeen, a popular 13-member K-POP boy group known for their world-class synchronization and powerful choreography, is coming back on stage after a two-year long break, with Vancouver being their first North American stop.
In May, the lead single “Hot” in the group’s new album, Face the Sun, garnered 1.74 million pre-order sales in the first week after its release. Fans are guessing “Hot” will be at the top of the group’s concert song lists.
Prior to the concert, fans will also gather outside to participate in a random play dance event to show their love and support for the group and get themselves into the mood and warmed up for the concert.
Carats, are you already excited to see Seventeen hit the stage?
When: Aug. 10, 2022 at 7:30 p.m.

Junny’s The “Blanc” Tour
K-R&B fans, don’t worry, you’re not missing out! Korean-Canadian singer-songwriter Junny will finally be returning to his hometown after over three years to grace us with his captivating vocal powers.
The soloist explained the title “blanc” as a metaphor for his experience — looking back at life, the singer always felt like a blank canvas, coloured by people who are around and inspire him every day.

Where: Harbour Event & Convention Centre, 750 Pacific Blvd, Vancouver
