South Korean K-Pop Girl Group Red Velvet officially touched down on Canadian soil last night, and people in Toronto are losing their minds. The doe-eyed quintet arrived at Toronto's Pearson Airport last night and was met with a horde of screaming fans who were desperately trying to catch a glimpse of the band's arrival.
The five-member girl band, a product of SM Entertainment, is performing at the Coca-Cola Coliseum tonight, as part of their Redmare Tour. Red Velvet commenced their world tour last week, starting with performances in Los Angeles, Dallas, and Miami. Their next stop, Toronto, is one of the tour's two Canadian concert locations, along with Vancouver.
Since their initial debut, Red Velvet has rocketed in popularity around the world, releasing two studio albums, one reissue album, and seven extended plays in Korean, consisting of eight hits that topped South Korea's Gaon Album Chart. Their most popular singles include "Ice Cream Cake", "Dumb Dumb", "Peek-a-Boo", and "Bad Boy", and have won multiple music recognition awards.
The five members of the group are Irene (Bae Joo-hyun), Seulgi (Kang Seul-gi), Wendy (Son Seung-wan), Joy (Park Soo-yeong) and Yeri (Kim Ye-ri).
The group name Red Velvet depicts the group's signature concept of duality. The "red" in Red Velvet illustrates the bright and bold energy of pop, while the "velvet" represents the seductive tones of R&B.
