Up to 4,000 people allowed to attend K-pop or music concerts and 30-50% capacity allowed for sports events Updated: 2021-06-14 09:56:15 KST

More people in South Korea can enjoy indoor sports events and performances starting from Monday.
For K-pop and other music concerts, audiences of up to four-thousand people can attend for both indoor and outdoor events.
Previously, up to 99 people were allowed to enjoy such shows.
People will, however, have to keep their masks on, are not allowed to eat, must stick to their designated seat, and are strictly prohibited from shouting.
And changes have also been implemented for sports events.
In the capital region, where level two distancing measures are being enforced, up to 30 percent of a venue's capacity can host fans for events like soccer and baseball.
That's three times more than the current 10 percent.
And outside the capital area, the capacity limit went up from 30 to 50 percent.
Quarantine restrictions have also been eased, as some people who have been vaccinated outside South Korea will no longer need to self-quarantine when entering Korea starting next month.
The exemption standards will be granted to those arriving for business or academic purposes, or for personal reasons like visiting a spouse or parents, who have been fully vaccinated for at least two weeks.
Travelers from 13 countries including South Africa and Brazil, where COVID-19 variants are spreading are not included in the list for exemption.
