U-KISS, a major name to emerge out of South Korea’s Pop scene will join Lovato on 22 March to complete the line-up of international artistes for the first night of the Twin Towers @Live 2013. The K-Pop boy-band consists of Soohyun, Kiseop, Eli, Kevin, Dongho, Hoon and AJ. The band’s breakthrough hit was Man Man Ha Ni (2009) from their EP ContiUKiss. Their first full-length studio album Only One was released in February 2010, which was followed by their second full-length album Neverland in September 2011. The band made their debut in Japan the same year with the release of the band’s first full-length Japanese album, A Shared Dream in 2012.
The second night of the Twin Towers @Live 2013 on 23 March will see K-Pop sensation, Rainbow, take to the stage. The seven-member South Korean girl-group Rainbow comprise front women Jae Kyung, Go Woo Ri, Cho Hyun Young, Kim Ji Sook, No Eul, Oh Seung Ah and Jung Yoon Hye. The release of their first EP Gossip Girl in 2009 and TV show debut quickly made the band a household name. 2011 saw the band release their second EP which was followed by several collaborations in Japan. The band’s debut single in the Japanese market, “A” reached No. 3 on Japan’s Oricon’s daily single chart. Rainbow’s subsequent Japanese single in early 2012 entitled “Gonna Gonna Go!” was followed-up by a second Japanese song in the dub of the Japanese/Korean animated series Zoobles, titled “CANDY GIRLS!”. Rainbow is currently working on their new album set for release in 2013.
