ATEEZ’s Online Concert Will Be Broadcast For The First Time in Japan! We Will Deliver Their Hottest Charm with a High Amount of Heat ♡
It has been decided that the online concert held by the 8-member group ATEEZ on July 28, 2020 will be broadcast for the first time in Japan on November 29 at the satellite theater. In addition, ATEEZ will be featured on the home drama channel from November to December! Prior to the broadcast, we will introduce their charms and highlights of online concerts.
The appeal of ATEEZ is their highly expressive performance!
8 trio group ATEEZ made their debut in South Korea in October 2018 as the little brothers of Block B.
Even before their debut, ATEEZ’s high-level performance and musical talent, which you wouldn’t expect as a newcomer, became a hot topic, and they gained many fans not only in Korea but also overseas. The latest work “ZERO: FEVER Part.1” sold 230,000 initial sales and achieved a personal best record. The amazing record of 371% growth from the previous work proved their popularity.
“ZERO: FEVER Part.1″ online comeback show, which was held on July 28, 2020 in accordance with the release of ” ATEEZ COMEBACK SHOW CONCERT AIR CON <ZERO : FEVER Part.1> ” (hereinafter, AIR CON) will be broadcast for the first time in Japan at the satellite theater on November 29, 2020!
This time, in order to make the AIR CON broadcast more enjoyable, the author, who is familiar with K-POP on a daily basis, would like to convey ATEEZ’s charm from a “fan’s perspective”.
What kind of group is ATEEZ!?
Their title song, called “Inception”, is all made according to one big story. One of the fun of the fans is to decipher the story that becomes clear every time a song is released. Their performance, which pursues “how to express the world of songs” rather than “how to make oneself look cool”, is full of spirit that goes beyond being an idol.
ATEEZ has eight members, as the group says “8 makes 1 team”, but the age difference between their eldest and youngest is only two years old. It is a very rare group composition for Korean idols who have 5 people of the same age in the group. Therefore, there is almost no hierarchical relationship, and they are always friendly.
First, let’s introduce the members of ATEEZ in order of age.

A beloved member of the team who is always tampered with even though he is the eldest. The appearance of always watching over the noisy younger brothers is exactly like ATEEZ’s mother.

You can fully enjoy their charm! What is the highlight of AIR CON!?
First of all, I would like to tell you in bold (!), But this concert is not just a concert!
About a month before the release of the album, there was a vote on which of the two songs “INCEPTION” and “THANXX” would be the first song for promotions … The place where the results were to be announced. It was AIR CON.
ATEEZ won first place in the song program for the first time in “WAVE” released last summer. In order to take first place in this activity, it was a great concern for the fans to decide which song to play.
A part of the song was released in advance, and fans on SNS were excited posting which song they preferred. After voting by fans and celebrities, and after the song presentation tournament and member voting during AIR CON, the results were finally announced … I was so sweaty.
Fans are excited! A masterpiece god set list filled with the charm of ATEEZ
“HALA HALA” and “WONDERLAND” the fierce dance song “WIN” that fully demonstrates the charm of ATEEZ, and a comeback candidate song, the set list that was the most exciting to watch live. Debuting the performances of “INCEPTION” and “THANXX”. At the end of the concert, there was a stage for the ballad song “WITH U” and the song “From” that was produced before their debut, which I couldn’t see much performance until now.
ATEEZ has the image of a fierce dance song, but in fact, the ballads are also famous songs. This set list is a god set list that is full of excitement for fans, packed with the charm of ATEEZ.

Laugh and heal! VCR & game corner where you can feel the friendliness of the group
Don’t miss the VCR corner where you can see the slapstick variety of the members set in a fictitious office called “Ateez Holdings”.
Members dressed as office workers appear one after another, but the character settings for each are detailed and just interesting. There are many points that make you laugh, such as the appearance of the eldest, Seonghwa, who plays the lowest role and flutters while carrying everyone’s luggage, and the dignity of the director, played by Jongho (the youngest). Are they really the same people, without any of the devilish vestiges they saw in the performance earlier? ?? It’s an incredible gap (laughs).
Then, the members who changed from suits to jerseys will challenge various games in pairs. In the earphone game where you watch the movement of others mouths and for a message while you can’t hear them, Seonghwa immediately answers “Poppo (kiss)” to Wooyoung who shouts “I always do it to my brother!”. How close are you to each other?

In the game showdown corner, members challenge the subject and predict whether they succeed or fail. In the pose guessing game divided into two groups of four people, we could get a glimpse of ATEEZ’s high variety.
▲ As Yeosang said, “I’ll show you ATEEZ, which can also be for variety shows!”, The fun games time will start after this.
Their sincere appearance during performances, their feelings for their fans … ATEEZ showed us their charm at AIR CON.
If you watch this concert, you will surely want to support them. Be sure to check out “ATEEZ COMEBACK SHOW CONCERT AIR CON <ZERO: FEVER Part.1>” at the satellite theater.
* Since the main broadcast of AIRCON had only English subtitles, I couldn’t really grasp the whole picture in the VCR and the game corner. Broadcasting at the satellite theater is perfectly with Japanese subtitles! Even if you have already watched the main broadcast, let’s enjoy it again with subtitles!
