SM Entertainment, home to such mega-hit K-pop acts as TVXQ, EXO and Girls‘ Generation, will open a hologram theater in Japan in April.

The SM Town theater, which runs from April 3 to July 5 inside a theme park located in Huis Ten Bosch, will offer Japanese K-pop fans an opportunity to virtually interact with their idols.
