Going to Music Shows in Korea

I’ve received a LOT of e-mails from you guys asking me how I got to watch these music shows.  I thought I gave enough information in my blog posts, but I guess not?  In this post I’ll try to give as much information as I can!

M-Wave (click here for website)

M-Wave is a pretty new music show which airs on Arirang TV all over the world.  Since it’s new, not a lot of the REALLY famous people appear on it.  However, there may be one or two well known artists/groups that appear each episode.  You’re probably thinking, “Then what’s the point of going?”  The point is you can get it.  Not a lot of people show up.  So it’ll be pretty easy for you to get in.

Ilsan Lake Park

No school or work today because it’s a Korean national holiday! Today, May 5th, was Children’s Day!

Today I went with my language exchange partner, Eunyoung, and her friend Sun to the Ilsan Lake Park in Ilsan.  Ilsan it right next to Seoul.  From Yonsei we hoped on the red 1000 bus (meaning that it goes outside Seoul) and in about 30 minutes we arrived.  The walk to the park isn’t long.  Maybe 10 minutes?  I don’t know exactly how to get there because we took a detour to Sun’s neighborhood before heading to the park.

The weather was pretty cloudy, but the temperature and humidity were high.  The park was packed!  There were tons of families there (and couples too!) having picnics, walking, riding bikes for two, flying kites, etc.  We walked around the park talking for quite a while.  And it was a good thing.  We were working off all the calories we were about to eat.
