Coca-Cola Launches Limited-Edition K-WAVE Zero Sugar For K-Pop Fans

Coca‑Cola has launched a limited-edition flavour K-WAVE Zero Sugar drink and a suite of music-focused digital and IRL experiences for K-Pop fans.

According to the company, Coca‑Cola K-WAVE Zero Sugar infuses the taste of Coca‑Cola with fruity-flavoured K-Pop magic.

“The world of K-Pop exists because of the fans, and we couldn’t be more excited to celebrate fans’ devotion to the artists and music that they love, through this unique creation,” said JY Park, founder of JYP Entertainment.

“We hope fans feel the love and appreciation we have for their support through the launch of a new Coca‑Cola flavour dedicated to their fandom and digital and physical experiences that connect them even more to their favourite artists.”

The design of the beverage can is inspired by the metallic, youthful energy of a K-Pop concert.

Coca‑Cola K-WAVE Zero Sugar will be available in the United States, Spain, Singapore, South Korea and other markets around the world.

Immersive AI Experience

Coca‑Cola's Creations Hub will also launch an immersive AI experience that will allow K-Pop fans to use the technology to embed their voice, name and face into the 'Like Magic' music video alongside their idols, then download and share their custom creation on social media.

Fans can also look forward to an exclusive, live K-Pop concert on 2 June, featuring artists from JYP Entertainment, including Stray Kids, ITZY, and NMIXX.
