    Seoul has created a “Music Star Zone” near the Olympic Stadium and Jamsil Sports Complex, locations known for having hosted various celebrated Korean and international musicians.

    In order to commemorate those famous musicians from Korea and abroad who have performed at Jamsil Sports Complex, a “Music Star Zone” has been temporarily created on the grounds of Jamsil Sports Complex, connecting with the “Olympic Star Street”. The recently created “Music Star Zone” features handprints and commemorative markers for 30 famous musicians both from Korea and abroad, in remembrance of their performances.

    Markers for five international artists have been installed at the location, commemorating Michael Jackson, Paul McCartney, Coldplay, and others. In addition, life-sized handprints and biographies for 20 of the most famous Korean artists, including Tai Ji Seo, IU, and BTS, which reached 28th place on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart in 2017, were plated in copper and installed.

    Seoul will hereafter continue to consistently create commemorative spaces for famous domestic and foreign musicians who perform at Jamsil Sports Complex, in an effort to provide a wider range of entertainment for its citizens.
