In the United Arab Emirates, I have found K. Pop Nine- Pieces a huge success. In October last year, the Dubai Star was included in the original set of prestigious awards and were among the UAE 10 most streamed K-pop artists on Spotify in 2019.
Their song Power was played to a choreographed water show at the Dubai Fountain in 2018 and in the same year, they had their faces projected onto the Bujh Khalifa in a light and sound show.
