This picturesque location is at the Global Campus of the prestigious Kyunghee University. Located in Suwon, this vast campus has enchanting architectural wonders, including the Peace Amphitheater.
Thanks to its majestic visuals, this place has been a popular spot for K-Entertainment events. Actors like Song Joong Ki and Park Bo Gum have held fanmeetings at this place. K-pop groups like MAMAMOO and Highlight have performed here as well. This is also a popular filming location, featured in projects like BLACKPINK‘s “As If It’s Your Last” music video and KBS‘s Beautiful Love Wonderful Life K-Drama.
Many ARMYs feel that the venue is reminiscent of ancient Greece and are hoping V pulls off a similar concept for the event.
