Photos: Rolling Stone India Meets VAV
We got to spend some time with the six members of the K-pop group to create a surprise photoshoot for their fans
After weeks of secret schedules and organized chaos, our team got to spend some time with the six members of K-pop group VAV to create a surprise photoshoot for their fans. It makes them the first South Korean group to have a full-fledged shoot in India. VAV also spoke to us about the pressure of representing their country, their expectations of India and plans for the future.
The group kicked off their tour on May 31st in New Delhi, followed by a show on June 2nd in Imphal. In addition to performing some of their biggest hits like 2019’s “Thrilla Killa,” their 2018 breakout hit “Senorita” and “Spotlight,” VAV got the crowd pumped up with energetic covers of Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito” and Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk.” They also surprised their Indian fans with a short and sweet performance of “Pehla Nasha” from the 1992 Bollywood film Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar. The show ended with a lot of tears, both from VAV and their fans, and a promise that the band will return to India.
