Boy group Pentagon (Jinho, Hui, Hongseok, Shinwon, Yeo One, Yan An, Yuto, Kino, Wooseok), which will appear at 2022 AAA as a whole, made a comeback with their 12th mini-album “IN:VITE U” in January. Afterwards, they proved their popularity both at home and abroad by topping Korean music charts with the title song “Feelin’ Like” as well as the iTunes top albums chart in 30 regions around the world. They have been actively engaged in activities between Korea and Japan, including releasing their Japan 5th mini-album “Feelin’ Like” and successfully completing offline concerts.


Mixed group KARD (B.M, J.Seph, Jeon So-min, Jeon Ji-woo) also joined the lineup. KARD, which heated up this summer with their 5th mini-album “Re:” in June, successfully completed their North American tour in a total of 11 cities in the Americas last August.


There will also be Choi Ye-na. Choi Ye-na, who debuted as a solo artist earlier this year, successfully announced her standing alone by ranking #1 on domestic music charts, music programs and the trending worldwide chart with the title song “SMILEY” (feat. BIBI). Her upward trend has continued as her second mini-album “SMARTPHONE”, released in August, recorded first week sales twice as much as the previous work.

JYP Entertainment’s Japanese girl group NiziU (Mako, Rio, Maya, Riku, Ayaka, Mayuka, Rima, Miihi, Nina) will also be on stage. NiziU, which officially debuted with the single “Step and a step” in December 2020, has gained popularity in the local area and has established themselves as a global group that the world pays attention to. NiziU’s first solo tour, which was recently held in 7 cities in Japan, attracted about 150,000 spectators.


NMIXX (Lily, Haewon, Sullyoon, Jinni, Bae, Jiwoo, Kyujin) and Tempest (Hanbin, Hyeongseop, Hyuk, Lew, Hwarang, Eunchan, Taerae), which appeared like comets in the music industry in 2022, will enter 2022 AAA for the first time.


NMIXX, which debuted in the music industry with the single “AD MARE” earlier this year, drew attention as an “all-rounder group” in which all members have skills and visuals. NMIXX, which made a comeback with their second single “ENTWURF” last month, is captivating the hearts of domestic and foreign fans by topping the Circle Chart (formerly Gaon Chart) album weekly chart and Japan Tower Records online daily sales chart.

Tempest is continuing their steep rise this year with the debut album “It’s ME, It‘s WE” and the second mini-album “SHINING UP”. They have established themselves as a representative rookie idol group by winning Male Rookie of the Year at the 2022 Brand of the Year Awards.


Hosted by Star News, Media Boy and co-organized by the Asia Artist Awards organizing committee, The Star Partner, Culture Entertainment, 2022 AAA will be held offline for the first time in 3 years at Nihongaishi Hall, Nagoya, Japan on Dec 13th.
