The Dubai Fountain premiered its first K-pop song on January 16. The hit song 'Power' from Korean supergroup Exo was introduced to audiences as part of a spectacular dancing performance at 5:30pm.

K-pop boyband Exo made its debut in 2012 and has enjoyed phenomenal success both in Korea and across the region ever since. The song 'Power' is their newest hit; it was released in September 2017 to great success, and has topped the charts in various K-pop markets. 'Power' will now stay in rotation, as the first K-pop song to ever be included as part of The Dubai Fountain's world-renowned repertoire.

Issam Kazim, CEO, Dubai Corporation for Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DCTCM), said: "We are dedicated to bringing world-class entertainment to visitors of Dubai. We are also committed to continually innovating and are extremely excited about the addition of 'Power' to The Dubai Fountain's repertoire. We hope to continue to offer visitors to Dubai a truly memorable experience through spectacular performances set to world-famous music, and we are pleased to be able to provide our Korean visitors with a unique rendition of one of their country's most popular songs."

The band members of Exo were present at The Dubai Fountain on 16 January to witness the inaugural performance of 'Power'.

Describing their feelings on seeing the show for the first time, Exo commented: "We are delighted to introduce global audiences to our song 'Power' at this world-famous site. It is a true honour for our song to have been chosen as the first ever K-pop to be played by The Dubai Fountain; not only is 'Power' a  dynamic song, but the lyrics describe how music can make people stronger by uniting us all. This ties in with the very essence of The Dubai Fountain itself, a place where visitors from all around the world gather together in one spot to enjoy the truly spectacular fountain show. Watching The Dubai Fountain dance to 'Power' was a truly magnificent experience for us. We would advise everyone to visit this amazing attraction when they are in Dubai."
