SuperM soaring straight to Los Angeles

Super K-Pop boy group, SuperM made their intoxicating debut with “Jopping” this week. The new boy group features popular members from SM Entertainment’s stellar roster: Taemin, Baekhyun, Kai, Taeyong, Mark, Lucas and Ten.

Their debut title track “Jopping” is an electronic pop dance genre, combining the words “jumping” and “popping” to form the title, “Jopping.”

The boys will be stopping by Barnes & Noble at The Grove in Los Angeles on Sunday, Oct. 6, for a very special fan sign event in the light of their debut.

Ticketing information can be found here, and participants will be able to receive the signature of one SuperM member with the purchase of their ticket.

Monsta X is someone’s someone
