The Hallyu Week Concert organized by the Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) was successfully concluded last December 4, 2011. It was held for three days, from December 2 to 4, at Yongpyong Dome, Gangwon Province to promote Pyeongchang, which will be the venue of the 2018 Winter Olympics.
The concert attracted many locals and foreigners who are living in Korea and abroad. Many of them were exchange students, teachers and tourists who watched the concert for many reasons. Thang from Myanmar said he wanted to see Pyeonchang but just like Derek (Canada) and Jongbo (Japan) they all came to see K-Pop girl groups in person to complete their Korean experience. Students like Xenia from Russia, Itel (Mexico), Stephany (Peru) and many students from USA, came to see the boy idol groups whom they already adore even before coming to Korea. Some native teachers (English, Spanish etc.) were also in the crowd together with groups of tourists from China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia and Japan. There were also many locals who watched the concert including army and samcheon fans who give their all out support especially to the girl groups.
2AM, U-Kiss, After School and Leader’s performed on the 1st day while B2ST, 4Minute, G.Na, Kim Kyu Jong and MyName were the highlights of the 2nd day. The last day was headlined by Davichi, Sistar, ZE:A, B1A4, Vivid and KTO’s honorary ambassadors missA.
