Korea Broadcasting Service (KBS) is hosting this free concert event, the New York Korea Festival is celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Korea for introducing Korean culture through music.
The list of K-Pop artists that will be performing is as follows: SHINee, 2PM, 4Minute, Sistar, Beast, and TVXQ (Yunho and Changmin). New York Korea Festival official website list TVXQ as Dong Bang Shin Ki which is the other name as well, however, the duo TVXQ doesn’t use that name. Dong Bang Shin Ki was used when the group was five.
It doesn’t seem that JYJ of TVXQ is going to be there. Their names have not been mentioned. Was JYJ invited and can’t make it or they were not invited? It would have been great to see JYJ and the duo TVXQ reunite for those two days.
Finally, the legendary group The Village People will be performing as well.
The K-Pop concert will not be held in New York this year, instead, it will be held in New Jersey due to the trouble of getting permits in New York. However, it should be a big turnout.
The New York Korea Festival Two-Day Free Concert is hosted by Hwang Soo Kyung and Hyori Lee and it will be held Sunday October 9, 2011 and it starts at 6:00 PM at Overpeck County Park in New Jersey.
