This was the first HallyuPopFest to be held in Singapore post-pandemic. This follows after it made its debut in 2018 and with another edition staged in 2019.

Its first edition in Singapore back in 2018 was a three-day mega event, comprising showcase sessions in the afternoon and an evening concert. Stars also walked a red carpet while interacting with fans.

In a similar fashion, organisers also cancelled HallyuPopFest Macau, which was supposed to happen next month.

It was supposed to take place on 21 and 22 Oct at Wynn Palace South Lawn. Performing acts included NCT Dream, SHINee, Hyolyn, KARD, Sam Kim, Omega X, Nine To Six, VERIVERY, Cherry Bullet and H1-KEY.
