Right under the stunning Al Wasl Dome, K-Pop’s beloved boyband, Stray Kids STOLE THE SHOW on Sunday, January 16.
Wearing modern hanboks (traditional Korean attire), SKZ made fans hella proud with their power-packed performance that even got the South Korean President swaying on his seat. Clearly, the urge to get up and break into a dance was just too strong amongst the audience.
The handsome band performed “Thunderous,” a ripe track that embodies Korean culture! Making the gig just the ideal opening act to Expo 2020 Dubai’s Korean Week.
As Ambassadors, @Stray_Kids was given the chance to perform in front of important people and the President of South Korea for the opening of Korea Week. They performed 'Thunderous' – a song that distinctly represents Korean culture with mixed modernity. I am so proud to be a fan. pic.twitter.com/zZHIoWqILL
