Fandom Bringing Some K-Pop To SDCC

Coming back for another unforgettable party during the biggest fan convention of the year, Fandom announced today that K-pop sensation NCT DoJaeJung will be the musical headliner of this must-attend event. The group will perform hits from their recently released EP at The Fandom Party on July 20 at Float at the Hard Rock Hotel.

The group composed of Doyoung, Jaehyun, and Jungwoo is the new unit of the South Koean boy band NCT, represented by SM Entertainment. Since their official debut with their first EP Perfume in April 2023, NCT DoJaeJung has quickly become a commercial and critical success. Lucky fans will catch their enthralling K-pop and R&B tracks as they make their first-ever U.S. performance during the convention week at the Fandom event.

“K-pop is one of the biggest genres in music with a strong influence on global pop culture, style and trends. In fact, the K-pop wiki is the largest music wiki on Fandom – over 7 million K-pop fans come to Fandom each month,” said Stephanie Fried, CMO of Fandom. “We’re thrilled to have one of the biggest groups in the genre join us for what’s sure to be an amazing experience for our fans and partners.”

As announced last March, Z2 Comics and NCT 127 – which also features members Doyoung, Jaehyun, and Jungwoo – have teamed up alongside Universal Music Group and its Korean label SM Entertainment for “NCT 127: Limitless,” an original graphic novel from the act to mark the first officially licensed K-pop print comic. With its title taken from the group’s 2017 single of the same, “Limitless” is both a hardcover and deluxe hardcover manhwa (a general term from South Korea for comic books and graphic novels with a distinct, detailed artistic style) to share a multiverse-hopping, reality-blurring tale of NCT 127 rehearsing for a sold-out stadium show in New York City. Fans can pre-order the graphic novel, trading cards and more now at

“We are thrilled to partner with Fandom, SM Entertainment, and Universal Music Group to deliver the very first live performance by NCT DOJAEJUNG in the United States,” said Kevin Meek, CEO of Z2 Comics.  “Like our upcoming graphic novel, NCT 127: Limitless, we are beyond excited to bring NCTzens another opportunity to experience the growing NCT universe.”
