LoL unveiled K/DA skins with live K-pop music video at 2018 worlds

These pop ladies came to life in spectacular fashion.


League of Legends developer Riot Games had an explosive opener for its annual world championships, and it's probably not what you were expecting.

Riot's fictional K/DA K-pop group in League of Legends, including Akali, Ahri, Kai'Sa, and EvelynnK, came to life during the concert, with an augmented reality performance created with the help of K-pop stars Jaira Burns, (G)I-DLE, and Madison Beer to make it all happen. They sang the crazily catchy tune "Pop/Stars," while the newest skins for K/DA appeared onstage with them and made an awesomely glittery spectacle.

But the music video was definitely something that needed to be seen too, with its neon aesthetic, awesome K-pop music video design direction, and excellent artwork. Its insanely high production values look like they're from a real-world music video, and honestly K/DA could take the world by storm. Compared to its previous Pentakill video, K/DA's blows the pants off all the previous efforts from Riot Games, by far, especially if you love K-pop.

In this case, it doesn't matter what you know about League of Legends, either – just check out the video and vibe! It's seriously good, guys.
