The 2017 Global Peace Concert One K in Manila will be held on March 2 at the Mall of Asia Arena and it will star CNBLUE, SHINee, AOA, BTOB, B.A.P, B1A4 and rapper Psy.

In 2015, the One K Global Campaign Organizing Committee, composed of 850 Korean non-government organizations including the Action for Korea United (AKU), started a civic-led Korea unification movement One K Global Campaign to seek global support for the movement.

As part of the efforts, AKU distributed a campaign song titled “One Dream, One Korea,” which was sung by 28 top K-pop singers.

K-pop groups and artists participated in a unification-themed concert on Sept. 10, 2015 at the Sangam World Cup Stadium in Seoul that garnered attention from young South Koreans.

This year, the group is collaborating with well-known producers such as Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis and American singer-songwriter Peabo Bryson and artists from South Korea to produce the “One K Global Campaign” song.

After the release of the single, the global tour will start in the Philippines on March 2 followed by the US, China, Japan and other countries.
