SEOUL -- Le Sserafim, a girl band formed by BTS agency Hybe's music label Source Music, will go on a world tour. The five-member band will start its tour with a two-day concert in Seoul on August 12. Le Sserafim will also release a Japanese language-based album while interacting with global fans during the two-month period.
Source Music, the band's agency, said Le Sserafim will cover seven cities -- Seoul, Nagoya, Tokyo, Osaka, Hong Kong, Jakarta, and Bangkok. The group's first world tour titled "Flame Rises" will end in Bangkok on October 8. Prior to its Tokyo concert in August, the sister band of BTS will roll out the Japanese version of "Unforgiven," a Korean language-based album released in May. The music video for the album's title track gained more than 81 million views on YouTube.
Le Sserafim is a multinational group with two South Koreans, two Japanese, and one American. Its debut song "Fearless" entered the Billboard chart eight days after its release. As of June 28, the dance song's music video surpassed 159 million views on YouTube. Le Sserafim has also collaborated with Moroccan-born artist ABIR for "Sour Grapes," a song in its debut album, to expand its overseas fanbase.
The group has worked as a five-member group since May 2022 when member Kim Ga-ram was embroiled in her alleged school bullying. Source Music terminated the contract with the troubled member in July 2022.
