2018 Leisure Chuncheon K-POP Mega Concert(2018 LCMC) will be held in a Special stage, Songam sports town on 25th August 2018.
Leisure Chuncheon KPOP Mega Concert will be held for the first time this year as an opening event of the Chuncheon International Leisure Games 2018. The festival, held in the city 85 kilometers east of Seoul, began as an international event in 2010 to be held every two years. Its national version was first arranged in 2015 to utilize the country’s sole leisure sports competition venue and to promote the international festival.
Chuncheon is well known as a lake city for the big body of water created by a nearby dam. But with people having extra free time after the introduction of the five-day work week in 2002, the city needed more than nature’s scenery to make itself an attractive tourism destination. It decided to build a leisure tourism business to revive the local economy, targeting people who will enjoy leisure sports within just an hour drive from Seoul metropolitan area.
Chuncheon decided to launch a festival that incorporates sports that uses mountains, rivers and lakes to turn itself into a leisure city. It joined the World Leisure Organization in 2004, and on Aug. 26, 2005, it won the bid to host the International Leisure Sports Festival, simultaneously with the organization’s Congress, in 2010. The first Chuncheon International Leisure Sports Festival drew 18,000 people from 76 countries, making it a truly global event.
The KPOP Mega Concert lineup will feature SHINee, Nu’EST W, B.A.P, Ailee, Gugudan, Dreamcatcher, Vromance, BABA, NATURE, Park Hyun-bin and Yonja Kim, and more. On the evening of the opening day, it will be a wonderful KPOP performance for 3 hours from 7 pm.
The KPOP Mega Concert ticket itself is free, but you must have a ticket to enter the concert stage. The concert tickets are available as a round-trip shuttle package on HaB Korea for $ 30 including roundtrip shuttle bus and field staff from Seoul.
