Have you gone K/DA crazy yet? If not, give it time. The virtual K-pop band K/DA has taken the world by storm ever since Riot Game introduced the girls to the entire world via the annual League of Legends world championships to explosive effect. 

The fictional K/DA K-pop group in League of Legends, including Akali, Ahri, Kai'Sa, and EvelynnK, came to life during a concert put on for the tournament's opening ceremonies. The girls strutted their stuff during an augmented reality performance created with the help of K-pop stars Jaira Burns, (G)I-DLE, and Madison Beer. 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.

If you're interested in singing along to the catchy K-pop tune, here are the official lyrics to learn and memorize. They're most in English, but many verses are in Korean as well.

Unfortunately, there are no official translated lyrics from Riot Games to fill in the Korean parts for us, but one talented fan named alonman1 took to the official League of Legends forums with an excellent fan translation that still slaps.
