It has been announced that Epik High will be performing at the 16th annual Unforgettable Gala on December 9th in Los Angeles. The Unforgettable Gala is a celebration of Asian-American trailblazers in the entertainment industry. This, on the heels of BTS’s history-making performance at the AMAs, is a pleasing announcement for fans of South Korean entertainment.
Epik High’s newest album, We’ve Done Something Wonderful, was just released in October, which is also the month of their 14th anniversary. It’s just in time for this performance. Fans of the rap trio will be pleased to hear of their return and will undoubtedly support their appearance at such a noble event.
The Gala celebrates the accomplishments of those who exemplify the strength and future of a thriving Asian-American and Pacific Islander community in entertainment. There is no better group to symbolize this than Epik High. Members include Mithra Jin, DJ Tukutz and Tablo, who is Korean-Canadian. His journey epitomizes what the Unforgettable Gala represents.
The Gala is being presented by BMW of North America and hosted by Kore Asian Media. Kore Asian Media will also live stream the event on their Facebook page.
