IMG_9746

If you didn’t already know the Jeolla Province in Korea , Bukdoand Namdo are celebrating its 1000th year of being founded. Some history for you: The region was named Jeolla in 1018, the 9th year of Goryeo King Hyunjong’s rule, taking the first letters of Jeonju and Naju.

There are many events happening during this year and if you are interested in Korean music then tonight at the grassy area of the ACC there will be a music festival featuring popular Kpop girl group Mamamoo, singers Gil9Bong9, Ben and a favorite of the oldies Kim Yeon Ja.

The concert starts at 5pm but I would suggest getting there early to get a spot and enjoy the other festivities that will be happening as part of the Fringe Festival.

Enjoy and don’t forget your sunscreen.
