K-Pop boy band NCT 127 performed at the 93rd annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on 28 November. On board the LEGO float with their hit “Highway to Heaven”, the group became the first K-pop band in the parade's almost 100-year history to attend. The song is from their recent EP "We Are Superhuman" - the English version of the song was released in July 2019.
Other stars, such as Ciara, Celine Dion, the Black Eyed Peas, and many others also took part in the parade.
Earlier this month, NCT 127 attended the MTV Europe Music Awards and was the first K-pop group to perform live at the show.
Fans are full of excitement over the fact that their favourite stars are making history again.
