Kep1er opens pop-up store in Seoul to celebrate second anniversary
Kep1er opened a pop-up store in Seoul on Wednesday to celebrate its second debut anniversary, the girl group's agencies Wakeone and Swing Entertainment said the same day.
The store will stay open until Thursday and is being hosted at Café Dear My Muse in Mapo District, western Seoul.
The store will be decorated with images charting the group's 2-year journey along with special gifts from its members and autographed instant photos, according to Wakeone and Swing Entertainment, who co-manage the group.
The group also released an image of the group celebrating its two years in the K-pop scene on Wednesday on social media.
Kep1er debuted in January 2022 with its first EP, "First Impact," under Wakeone Entertainment and Swing Entertainment. It has nine members: Yujin, Chaehyun, Dayeon, Youngeun, Yeseo, Xiaoting, Mashiro, Hikaru and Huening Bahiyyih.
The group's members were the top nine finalists of Mnet's audition show "Girls Planet 999: The Girls Saga" (2021). The group's name was inspired by the show's theme of space and the German astronomer Johannes Kepler.
The group's latest EP, "Magic Hour," was released on Sept. 25, followed by its Japanese single "Fly-High," released in November.
