SEOUL, May 8 (Yonhap) — Idol group VIXX on Monday announced a concert and a new EP album for this month to celebrate the band’s five year anniversary.
The group will hold a three-day concert titled “VIXX Live Fantasia” starting Friday at the Jamsil Olympic Stadium in Seoul, according to Jellyfish Entertainment.
The group’s fourth EP album, titled “Shangri-La / Paradise on Earth” will be released the following Monday. It will adopt an aesthetic and motif paying homage to the Eastern traditional utopia of Shangri-La, emphasizing an “oriental fantasy” concept, according to Jellyfish.
The band will later hold a commemorative photo-memorabilia exhibition named “VIXX 0524” from May 24, the anniversary of its debut, until June 4 at the Ara Art Center in Seoul’s Gyeonji-dong.
VIXX was formed in 2012 on cable broadcaster Mnet’s survival reality show MyDOL through viewer votes. The members are N, Leo, Ken, Ravi, Hongbin and Hyuk.
The group is predominantly known as a concept group, or “concept-dol,” where its overall performance — including music, lyrics, choreography and stage projection — is intertwined to tell a concept-oriented story.
