There’s no need to buy tickets for this concert, so make sure to tell all your friends and family because this event is one K-pop fans won’t want to miss.

SMTOWN Live 2022: SMCU Express @Kwangya is named after the fictional meta-universe called Kwangya that was created by SM Entertainment’s founder, Lee Soo Man. It’s similar to the Marvel Cinematic Universe because it connects artists under the agency together through shared storylines in their music. For example, aespa has referenced Kwangya in their songs several times, including in their single “Savage,” which dropped in October 2021.

Judging by the teaser SM Entertainment has dropped for their upcoming NYE special, it seems SMTOWN LIVE 2022 will dive further into the story of Kwangya. If you can’t wait to watch it all unfold, here’s everything you need to know about SMTOWN LIVE 2022.
