K-pop mania has swept through Los Angeles for years now—and now the Grammy Museum playing its own part in the movement. 

Opening on August 2 and running through September 15, “HYBE: We Believe in Music, A Grammy Museum Exhibit” is a new show presented by the Downtown L.A. cultural institution alongside HYBE (the South Korean entertainment company behind some of the biggest K-pop bands in the world) that will explore the power and history of the genre.

“The exhibit traces HYBE’s evolution and influence by showcasing instantly recognizable artifacts from its roster of artists, creators and fans as well,” reads an official press release.

The interactive production will feature original outfits worn in iconic music videos like “Yet To Come (The Most Beautiful Moment)” by BTS, “MAESTRO” by SEVENTEEN, “Sugar Rush Ride” by TOMORROW X TOGETHER, “Sweet Venom” by ENHYPEN and “EASY” by LE SSERAFIM.

In addition to perusing through the various mementos, guests will be able to have fun in dance rooms, sing along to some of their favorite tracks, pose alongside their beloved K-pop artists in a “photoism booth” and even step inside a room-filling projections of BTS’s legendary 2022 Grammy performance.  

Perhaps most exciting is the fact that the exhibit will kick off with a special program dubbed Global Spin Live: TWS that will feature a moderated conversation with TWS followed by a performance by the K-pop group.

“HYBE and their artists represent the present and future of the global music landscape, and our goal with this exhibit is to deepen the appreciation and respect for its creators and performers,” said Michael Sticka, president and CEO of the Grammy Museum, in an official statement. “HYBE has contributed to creating a playground of innovation that inspires fandoms that transcend age, gender, geography and beyond. The Grammy Museum is thrilled to provide a space where fans can express their love for K-pop and feel closer to their favorite idols.”

Tickets for the exhibition cost an extra $20 on top the museum’s $15 general admission and are available right here. Keep in mind that you’ll need the “add-on” ticket to access the area, as well as a timed reservation (available in one-hour slots).
