India has seen its fair share of K-pop idols come and go, either as simple tourists or performing artists.
As the Hallyu wave washes over the globe at a rapid rate, the chances of more K-pop artists extending their world tours and visiting the South Asian country have expanded exponentially.
Here is a list of 5 K-pop artists that have performed in India.
