K-pop band BIG share how they spent time in Abu Dhabi

In a new uploaded vlog, the members of the band show off what they did in the capital

Back in November, Korean boy band BIG (short for Boys in Groove) came to the Middle East for the first time. They performed at Abu Dhabi’s Cultural Foundation as part of Korea Festival and not only sang their songs in Korean but performed covers in Arabic as well.

Now the group have just released a new video in which they detail how they spent their time in the UAE. Titled V-log in Abu Dhabi ep.1, it will be interesting to see if there will be more follow up videos to see how they spent the rest of their time in the capital.

Recapping their current vlog, the video shows members of the band in the Park Rotana Abu Dhabi enjoying breakfast and swimming in the outdoor pool. They also take time to show off their hotel room where members Benji and Gunmin joked about having to share a bed.

The clip also shows them discussing lunch plans. They say they will get Korean food and then “eat anything we want after the concert.” They are then seen eating at Noodle Bowl in Zayed Sports City with its recognisable red and gold wall in the background.

Next the band is seen backstage at the Cultural Foundation preparing for their show and members are asked how they feel. The video ends shows the members getting ready to head to lunch before showing them at their fan meet-and-greet session at the Korean Cultural Centre.

Hopefully the next video in the series will pick up with the group meeting their fans. In addition to performing, it seems they had time to also film a music video in the desert. On November 14, they shared a dance video for the Arabic version of their new single Illusion:
