Big Hit Entertainment’s fan community platform Weverse is going global with its latest artist additions.
In recent months, a slew of K-pop artists hopped on board Weverse, including the likes of BTS, TXT, SEVENTEEN, GFRIEND, CL, and more. Yesterday, the app announced its first US artists to join – with singer-songwriter Gracie Abrams kickstarting the launch, to be followed by Universal Music Group labelmates Alexander 23, and YUNGBLUD.
