Yeouido Floating Stage with Culture and Arts, the Right Place to Immerse Oneself in the Summer Night
The NupCon (a concert you watch while lying down) on the Yeouido Floating Stage is the perfect performance where you can revel in the romantic summer night. Performances of various genres are staged for two hours from 7 pm every Friday and Saturday in June, so don’t hesitate to go to Hangang and get a taste of the wonderfully comfortable cultural life.
The NupCon is a unique concert in which the audience can enjoy music while lying down on colorful mats in front of a floating stage.
On June 8 (Sat.), AZ Sound, a band of office workers who dream of the balance between work and life, gives a performance. On June 14 (Fri.), visitors can enjoy R&B and electronic performances on the same stage. Plus, they can watch movies projected on the floating stage after the performances, with the nightscape of the Hangang River as the background. Welcoming the Memorial Month of June, deeply touching films that can be enjoyed by visitors with all their family will be screened.
