World K-pop Concert: B.I.T. 4U Concert took place on Sunday, November 14, attracting around 3,000 fans. This Kpop concert was the first large indoor music event the government of South Korea allowed in nearly two years since the COVID-19 pandemic.
The one-day concert was held at the Korea International Exhibition Center (KINTEXT) in Goyang, featuring more than a dozen Kpop artists, including popular groups NCT Dream, Pentagon, ITZY, Brave girls, aespa, and solo artists SHINEE’s Key, Simon Dominic, and Loco.
In partnership with Korean Foundation for International Cultural Exchange, the culture ministry organized the event to help the people’s gradual return to normalcy after the country eased social distancing rules in line with the implementation of the “living with COVID-19” scheme on November 1.
The ministry said it had invited 3,000 people to the free concert, mostly the less privileged and multicultural families. However, only those who tested negative for COVID-19 or who were fully vaccinated can join the event. The attendees must also keep distances and wear plastic gloves, and singing along was not allowed.
