K-pop stars including B2ST, 4minute and G.NA will hold a concert in San Paulo, Brazil, in December, agency Cube Entertainment said on Wednesday.

“United Cube Concert in Brazil” will take place at the Espaco das Americas on Dec. 13, it said.

This will be the first time for K-pop artists to perform as a group in South America. Boy band Super Junior had planned a concert there over the summer, but later canceled it.

After S.M. Entertainment initiated its family show SM Town Live Concert, other agencies have followed suit. JYP Entertainment created JYP Nation and YG Entertainment holds YG Family concerts.

The six-member boy band B2ST debuted in 2009 and its members gained fame through diverse work in TV dramas, musicals and entertainment shows.

Five-member 4minute also debuted in 2009 and received the Rookie Music Award from the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism that year.

G.NA is best known for her 2011 hit “Black & White.”

The United Cube Concert launched in Seoul on Aug. 14 and its Tokyo concert on Aug. 24 attracted 10,000 Japanese fans.

Before the Brazil concert, the United Cube will visit the O2 Brixton Academy in London on Dec. 5.

Ticket prices and the opening date for ticket sales have not been announced.
