What's better than a K-pop concert in your hometown? How about a free K-pop concert!


To celebrate the 111 years since Koreans began immigrating into North America, the LA Korean Society (Korean American Federation of Los Angeles) and KBS America held a press conference at the Korean Meeting Hall on February 10. At the press conference, they revealed that they would be holding a free Hallyu open concert that will also be the largest of all time.

This event will take place at the 'LA Memorial Coliseum,' which has 93,000 seats and can be configured to accommodate more than 100,000 people for concerts.  The free concert will occur on April 12 for 3 hours starting at 5 PM.


Fourteen of the hottest idol groups will be performing live there while the recorded content will be broadcast throughout 88 countries two weeks later through KBS.  Some of the artists who are scheduled to attend include 2PM, SHINee, SISTAR, CNBLUE, Dynamic Duo, Girl's Day, Kim Tae Woo, and Song So Hee.


The KBS America chairman Choi Sung Won said, "KBS quickly accepted and accomplished the selfless request from the LA Korean Society's chief Bae Moo Han for this free Hallyu concert and decided to take on the entire burden of the huge costs including the concert venue."


The method of obtaining the free tickets will be revealed at a later date.  Will you be attending the free concert?

I have two tickets that I'm trying to sell for 50$ each making it 100$ for two because I got them and my airfare ticket but then realized I have an exam that day. And since my airfare is non refundable I'm just trying to make up for the lost. If you are interested please let me know by emailing me at: hthao@pdx.edu and maybe we can work something out!

Did anyone get their tickets? I was on that page the second it hit 10:00 am lol. Right away it showed me 2 tickets for section 22 or something but it didn't say wether it was the upper level, middle level or lower level and I wanted to be on the floor so I researched and it had me waiting for 30 minutes! I had to call the # but all the operators were busy so I ordered them on the automated service. I still have no idea which level I'm on but i'm sure it's not on the floor 

Anyone got seats on the floor and would like to switch during 2PM & Cnblue performances? I promise to go back to my seats when they're done! #ImCrazy

Ok so I tried to reply to everyone who needed this info but I'll just post it here instead so anyone visiting the page (religiously lol) can see it: The tickets will be available for sale on Ticketmaster website at 10 am on 3/29/2014 Search "LA Korean Festival". The limit right now says 2 tickets a person. Ticketmaster charges $0.75 fee.

(First-come-first-serve means waiting until 10am on the site to purchase a ticket. I seriously hope I can get 1 fast enough now that i'm letting everyone know how to get them, lol)

Oh my god I will DIE if I can't see 2PM. DIE. But why am I just hearing about this? I completely happened upon this while searching for events from my university's Korean Club. And Nichkhun had a fan chat on twitter a while ago & he said they don't plan on touring in America until they get popular enough or smthng. Is there a legit website for this or what? I searched & found an article on the billboard site but I'd if this is really happening lol


Wow, I just saw Cable in January & I've been craving to see them again.  How awesome would that be?!? 



Who ever is planning on going let's all meet there. I want to make some kpop friends.
