Coachella: K-Pop Takes the Desert by Storm (and We Want to Hear About It!)
Hi, K-Pop fam! Coachella just went down, and boy, was it lit! 🎉 And you know what's even cooler? K-Pop royalty like ATEEZ & Le Sserafim were reppin' on that stage in 2024. Talk about taking the vibe up a notch!
Now, let's rewind a bit and dig into how Coachella became THE thing in Korea. Back in 2019, Blackpink kicked off the K-Pop invasion as Second-line Performers, and by 2023, they were headlining like bosses. They basically put Coachella on the map for K-Pop fans everywhere. 🌟
