Watch EXO, NCT, Wanna One, and Red Velvet’s BOF 2018 performances the way they were meant to be watched

29 November 2018

Finally, after months of streaming chopped up clips that don't really give you the full experience, you can watch the Opening and Closing concerts of the Busan One Asia Festival 2018, in their full glory, and all in one go!

MTV Asia will be airing the official concert videos from BOF 2018 — which include brain-melting performances by EXO, NCT 127 and NCT Dream, Wanna One, Red Velvet, and 16 other top Kpop acts — this December.

The Busan One Asia Festival (BOF) is Asia's No. 1 Hallyu event, a massive NINE-day festival showcasing the very best that Kpop has to offer. This year, BOF 2018 rocked Busan from October 20 to 28, bookended by two concerts that had every Kpop stan drooling at their lineups.

The BOF 2018 opening concert was headlined by EXO, and featured performances by Wanna One, SEVENTEEN, NCT 127, Celeb Five, Mamamoo, EXID, GFriend, (G)I-dle, A.C.E., and The Boyz.

The closing concert brought Red Velvet, NCT Dream, Favorite, Dynamic Duo, Rhythm Power, Teen Top, Astro, April, KARD, Mighty Mouth and Spectrum to the stage.

The random footage strewn across the interwebs is usually cut in awkward places, has reactions slipped in at odd spots, or is shot from someone's phone. You never really get the full experience as all the stars intended.

Tune in to MTV Asia in December, though, and you won't just get the highlights. We're showing the FULL official concert footage for both shows — we'll have every strut, every heart-stopping dance move, every squee-inducing note for all the EXO-Ls, Wannables, Carats, NCTzens, ReVeluvs, and all the other fandoms out there. With subtitles, to boot!

Here's a taste of what went down at BOF 2018:

Don't miss out on these spectacular shows a second time. Tune into MTV Asia on Dec. 2 and 9 at 7pm (WIB) / 8pm (SG) / 9pm (MAL) and catch the premiere of the BOF 2018 opening and closing concerts!
