“Refreshing Hangang Concerts” on Yeouido Floating Stage
The Yeouido Floating Stage, located along the banks of the Hangang River, is now in full operation for May, which is designated as “National Family Month.” Starting at 7 p.m. every Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday, visitors are treated to an hour of beautiful harmonies at the Yeouido Floating Stage, so let’s all make plans for a cultural outing this week!
The “Refreshing Hangang Concerts” will be held at the Yeouido Floating Stage from 7 to 8 p.m. every Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday, free of charge.
○ The Refreshing Hangang Concerts are free and open to the public. From May to October, the concerts will feature performances of various genres, including jazz, pop, and fusion Korean traditional music.
○ Situated on the Hangang River, the Yeouido Floating Stage is a unique performance venue, where the audience has the choice to sit directly in front of the stage or on the stone steps across from the stage and watch the performances.
