Red Velvet will be singing two of their hits when they perform in Pyongyang, North Korea, next week.

The girl group submitted five or more songs to South Korean officials who are organising the concerts, and "Red Flavour" as well as "Bad Boy" were chosen.

As the only K-pop group in the list of performers going to North Korea, they'll be representing K-pop's current wave with their incredibly popular music.

Red Velvet are only the fifth idol group to ever perform in North Korea, following on from Sechskies, Fin.K.L, Shinhwa and Baby Vox. They're also the first K-pop group to perform in Korea in over a decade, with Shinhwa and Baby Vox being the last to visit in 2003.

The concerts will be taking place from this Saturday to Tuesday, with various artists taking the stage throughout those days.
