Hot Korean Wave stars are coming to New York.

K-pop stars and idol singers, including DBSK, 2PM, Lee Hyori, SHINee, and Sista, will guest-star in ‘New York – Korea Festival,’ an event to be held in Randall’s Island on 9 October to commemorate the 20th anniversary of South Korea’s accession to the U.N.

Other veteran singers and famous classical singers will also make appearances. American singers such as Michael Bolton and Village People will make touching performances.

The concert will start around 6 p.m. and continue for 3 hours. Its edited version (2hrs 20min) is to be aired on KBS 2TV in October.The concert’s general director, PD Park Taeho said, “It’s been known to be the Open Concert, but this is not part of the existing program, but has been planned to be a special concert for the 20th anniversary of Korea’s accession to the U.N. and for the Korean Wave boom. It is to promote the brand of Korea at the center of New York.”

Considering the recent K-pop boom, at least 30~40K people are expected to participate in the festival.
