About “aoppella!?”

 

“aoppella!?” is KLab’s latest original multimedia music project built on the themes of “youth” and “a cappella”!

 

Story

 

It was on that unforgettable day that the boys found themselves changed.

In front of them were ordinary high school students just like them. There were no flashy costumes or musical instruments.

But the moment they began to sing a surreal harmony filled the air and the crowd went wild.

 

"We want to sing like that! We want to shine, too!"

 

High school students captivated by the art of a cappella aim for the top in the exclusive high school a cappella contest, "Aoppella".

They try to perfect their pitch as the show is about to begin!
