[Allkpop] UK's First K-Pop Girl Band 'KAACHI' makes Worldwide Debut
Updated: Jul 1, 2020
The world's first K-Pop group from the UK, KAACHI have just released their debut single 'Your Turn', becoming the first European K-Pop girl group to ever debut. The 4 member girl group, made up of 3 different nationalities- Korean, Spanish and British, have broken away from the traditional K-Pop model by creating a ground-breaking concept of Kpop being universal and open to artists from all over the world.
The group's name ‘KAACHI’, originates from the Korean word for 'Togetherness, Value and Unity' and symbolizes the group being brought together for a common purpose of creating 'K-Pop Music' while fusing different countries and cultures into one unique group.
Their debut single ‘Your Turn’ follows the story of a girl who struggles with her ex-boyfriend with the lyrics and music video following the girl's emotional struggle with love and breakups, something which many people can empathize with and relate to. The message behind the song is both uplifting and inspirational, showing the girl fighting through these emotions to come out on top of the world with confidence and feeling empowered.
KAACHI is signed to British label FrontRow Records. Their director and producer, Monica Sound said of her group “I am so happy to showcase KAACHI to help promote the KPOP genre to new audiences while adding a British twist to the genre. Through KAACHI, I hope they can create a wave of change in the perception that KPOP is no longer a Korean music genre, but a global one." The group was discovered and put together after being scouted at the UK KPOP Dance Competition held in London, England in October last year and has received training at 1 Million Dance Studio, Korea's most famous dance studio. They are also set to appear in their very own UK TV Series on Channel 4, airing this May, following their journey from ordinary girls with big dreams and aspirations to their journey of becoming K-pop stars.
'Your Turn', the debut single from KAACHI is available now across all music platforms now.
