12/31—1/16 New Year’s Concerts

Some of the most famous international superstars are coming to Korea to celebrate the new year! Close your eyes and imagine Michael Bolton serenading “How Can I Live Without You” as you ring in the new year. South of the river, Korea’s very own Bi (rain) will be making ladies swoon with his smooth voice and slick dance moves. Sting will give a grand performance for his Northeastern Asian fan base as he helps usher in the first few weeks of the new year. And Mary J Blige will make sure 2011 will be full of no drama.

  1. This picture always “freaks me out” it’s uncanny how much Ji-Hoon looks like Michael (believe it or not) right there. Michael was my original celebrity crush as a young girl.

    Now you know Ji-Hoon and company will hit up Mary J. Blige’s show! She’s pretty damned soulful. Has Korea always been This accepting of R&B artists? It’s kind of mind blowing.
