Four singers including Miyeon and Soyeon of (G)I-DLE from Korea, Madison Beer and Jaira Burns joined together to perform new single ‘POP/STARS’ for the opening ceremony. All four members of K/DA including Ahri, Akali, Evelynn, and Kai'Sa have been brought to the stage singing and dancing by AR Reality Technology. The tension has come so high!

The storyboard of the MV is in K-pop style. Akali’s fluorescent look during her rap is so eye-catching that artists can’t stop themselves from painting. Facebook and Twitter are now overflowing with fan art of fluorescent Akali!
Covered with fluorescent paint, Akali from K/DA is so fascinating.
Not just the MV, League of Legends official is giving even more surprises!

League of Legends official uploaded the full dance video of ‘POP/STARS’ by K/DA with by Ellen Kim, Bailey Sok, Stevie Doré and Eileen Harman. The four professional dancers give a cool performance that is different from the MV or the opening ceremony, but the choreography during the refrain is the same as the four champions done in the MV.
Here’s that mini tutorial @emaisee and I made on the K/DA recall dance. The recall is a little different the actual choreo but if you just wanted to learn a little bit of it here it is ☺️
