Legendary British band Queen have come to South Korea to rock the nation.
Queen took the world by storm during the 70s and 80s.
Some of the younger generation of fans in Korea might have not known the band until last year when 'Bohemian Rhapsody', a film about the band, became a huge hitselling nearly ten million tickets.
Queen appeared ready to entertain the fans during Thursday's press conference in Seoul.

"I think we have another level because we have another younger audience. After working with Adam for so many years, the shows have got better and better and better. So this is a great time."

Adam Lambert, a star singer from the U.S. audition program 'American Idol', first met with Queen's drummer Roger Taylor and guitarist Brian May in 2009.
Since then, the vocalist has filled in for the late Freddie Mercury who died in 1991.
May said the rise of K-pop has made a big impression in Englandespecially after BTS performed in front of a sold-out crowd of 90-thousand at Wembley Stadium in London last year.

"When we were young, rock music was the language of the kids, of the young, you know. And It grew up. I think everybody thought rock and roll would be finished after a few years. You know it will be very interesting to see what happens with K-pop. Does it grow with the generation and does it continue to be the voice of that generation?"

With their hit songs like 'Somebody to Love', 'We Are the Champions' and 'We Will Rock You' Queen will be hitting the stage on Saturday and Sunday at Gocheok Sky Dome in western Seoul.
