According to SM Entertainment, the group’s agency, the girls presented hologram performances in the virtual concert called “Girls’ Generation V Concert” at 8 p.m. on the M-Stage at Gangnam subway station. People thronged to the venue three to four hours before the concert began and enjoyed the performances despite the very cold weather.
“V Concert” means Virtual Concert and it consists of 3D hologram video images.
In the concert, “I Got a Boy”, the title song of the group’s fourth album, and “Dancing Queen” on the same album, were presented as hologram videos.
A representative of the agency said, “The hologram video performances rendered a sense of realism and enchanted the viewers.”
Following the hologram performances, Girls’ Generation members visited the concert venue, greeted the viewers and conducted a brief talk show at the booth by the stage.
The girls showed the viewers photos of the shooting scenes for the music video of “I Got a Boy” and other unreleased photos and talked about their recent activities.
