Rising Rookie GHOST9 Becomes First K-pop Group To Headline UCLA Bruins Men’s Basketball Game Halftime Show : Entertainment Daily

Hailed by Celebmix as “the next mainstream K-pop stars,” GHOST9 (consisting of members Junhyung, Shin, Kangsung, Junseong, Prince, Woojin and Jinwoo) has officially been announced today as the halftime show performers for UCLA Bruins’ home men’s basketball game against the Stanford Cardinal this Saturday, January 29. 
With nearly 10,000 fans anticipated to be in attendance, Saturday’s game marks the return of an in-person audience for the UCLA Bruins – and in the midst of tension-filled conference play with the game weighing in on post-season tournament placements. The team is a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA)’s Pac-12, a collegiate league made up of 12 colleges in the Western United States, and currently ranks number 7 in the country. UCLA is one of the most decorated collegiate teams in history, winning a record total of 11 NCAA titles.
“As huge fans of basketball, we are absolutely speechless at the opportunity to be able to perform and cheer on one of our favorite collegiate teams,” says GHOST9, “We hope we can energize the crowd and help the Bruins finish strong in the game.”
