Girls’ Generation’s Hyoyeon has revealed that her supergroup GOT The Beat had to decline an invitation to perform at Coachella.
Hyoyeon recently appeared on an episode of SBS’ Cultwo Show, where she spoke about GOT The Beat’s latest release, ‘Stamp On It’. During her appearance, the K-pop star claimed that the group had been invited to perform at Coachella following their 2022 debut with ‘Step Back’, which had gained popularity overseas at the time.
However, according to Hyoyeon, GOT The Beat had to decline the invitation since the group had not released enough songs. “At the time, we had only one song, so we couldn’t go,” Hyoyeon explained, as translated by Koreaboo.
