South Korea’s first dedicated K-pop arena to be developed in Seoul

South Korea’s first dedicated K-pop arena to be developed in Seoul
January 22, 2019

The Seoul city government has announced that it is to develop South Korea’s first dedicated K-pop arena.

The arena, which will be designed for concerts only, aims to tap into K-pop’s rise to become a global music phenomenon.

Korean news agency Yonhap reported a Seoul Metropolitan Government official advising “we plan to start the work to construct the concerts-only complex, Seoul Arena, in September next year on a 50,149 metre2 lot near Changdong Station for completion at the end of 2023.”

The 18,000-capacity Seoul Arena will also include a smaller 2,000-seat concert hall, a K-pop Hall of Fame, a K-pop special exhibition hall and a theatre. Unusually, the arena will be designed to locate its stage in the centre of the facility.

The spokesperson added “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.”

The venue is scheduled to open in 2024.
