The Seoul Festa, also known as K-pop Super Live, is an annual live stream that features performances from a variety of K-pop stars. Since the artists typically interact and perform on stage in a more casual manner than at award shows and music festivals, what began as an initiative by the Seoul Metropolitan Government to promote South Korea’s tourism has now developed into one of the most anticipated programs.
This year’s K-pop Super Live was full of the joy and excitement that fans feel every year. K-pop performers from a wide range of thrilling genres came together on April 30, 2023, for a concert at Seoul’s Olympic Stadium. Artists from different generations, including iKON and ENHYPEN, attended the event, and the approximately 40,000 attendees naturally appreciated and celebrated.
