Unlike any other arena, the Seoul Arena will feature a stage in the center. They hope fans will be able to enjoy the performances from all direction with this new feature.

The new Seoul Arena will only be dedicated to concerts, hosting more than 90 massive live concerts each year. The arena will not only be open for K-Pop artists to use, but also any international artists who wish to come perform in Seoul!

“Concert infrastructure is still inadequate despite the global K-Pop craze, and Seoul Arena will make it possible for local and foreign pop artists to hold more than 90 massive live concerts annually.”
