Summer Kpop Festival

On Tuesday afternoon, a free Kpop concert for foreigners was held near Seoul City hall. All you needed to bring was a ticket printed out from the internet and your passport. The concert started seating around 4:30pm and ended at 10pm.IMG_4986

After class ended at 1pm my friend and I had lunch, printed our tickets, then went to city hall a bit after 3pm so I thought it would be plenty of time before the concert, however thousands of people showed up and only 2000 seats were available. We waiting in line for 2 hours in the heat but they ran out of tickets for seats so that was frustrating. image

However I did get to see a few performances from a distance. I saw Infinite, Jiyeon from T-ara, Crayon Pop, and some other bands I didn’t recognize. I also got to see the MCs Jiyeon, Zhoumi (Super Junior) and Hong Bin (Vixx) pretty close up. They were only about 10 feet away from me.

I also got a free fan and poster. image So it wasn’t all bad.



If there’s ever a free concert again, I’ll make sure to go way in advance!

      Yeah, they had workers there that spoke different languages including English. Also, any announcements were made in Korean, English, Chinese, and Japanese. It was definitely accessible for foreigners ^^
