On the afternoon of the 13th, Nodeul Island was full of people in the middle of the Han River. These people came from the southern and northern ends of the Hangang Bridge to see various performances and events of the Seoul Music Festival with the audience for the first time in three years since the Corona-19 incident.

It was complete since the afternoon performance on the first day of the event. For those who couldn’t get tickets in advance, people outside the concert hall were also full of people around the billboards sharing the performances. The Seoul Music Festival lasted until the 16th and was filled with spectators during weekends and holidays.

Above all, it helped quench the thirst for cultural activities cut off due to the novel coronavirus infection (COVID-19) pandemic. Ahn (their 40s), who visited Nodeul Island with her family, said, “I came to the site after hearing the news of the Seoul Music Festival from mom cafes and online community sites. I came here thinking it would be a good experience.”

Foreigners also attended the event. This is the power of ‘K-pop,’ which has become a global music genre in the past few years. Chris (23), who arrived in Seoul the day before from Brazil, couldn’t hide his excitement, saying, “I saw it on Instagram in Seoul.

The Seoul Music Festival, which first debuted at Gwanghwamun Square in 2019, just before Corona 19, changed its location to Nodeulseom and was held this past weekend again for the first time in three years. The Seoul Music Festival, the representative festival of Seoul, a city of vibrant culture where culture and arts come alive in the four seasons with popular music performances of various genres, was a meaningful event as a cautious signal of recovery from daily life after Corona 19.

During the event from the 13th to the 16th, the names of the four central performances, which started at 7 pm every evening, were named ‘Beauty-Full, Soul-Full, Power-Full’ with the meaning of ‘Full.’ ) and Wonder-Full, the expectation for such a lifelong recovery is reflected.

Before the main event, there was also a ‘next-generation street performance (busking)’ filled with experimental music from six domestic universities and students’ enthusiasm. In addition, the music story concert, where a young man who dreams of becoming an expert in the music industry, such as a producer, a lyricist/composer, a singer, and a senior musician, received a lot of attention.

Joo Yong-Tae, head of the Seoul Culture Division, emphasized the cautious opening of the daily recovery, saying, “As the Seoul Music Festival will be held face-to-face for the first time in three years, we have prepared a richer and more colorful spectacle than before.”
