    Prior to the installation of the main stage for the 2019 Cultural Seoul Plaza, Seoul will host the “boom-up” preliminary performance on the eastern part of the Seoul Plaza in line with the theme, ”Spring’s here! It’s picnic time!” For five days on April 15, 17, 22, 24, and 26, unique attractions will unfold at Seoul Plaza.

    During the “boom-up” preliminary performance, people will get a glimpse into different genres, not readily accessible, that include circus performances, large street puppet shows, and pole dancing.
