BTS, the K-pop boy band that’s been causing a global sensation, performed at London’s Wembley Stadium, which is the dream stage for artists worldwide, on June 2. They’ve finally returned home, and they held fan meetings in Busan on June 15 and 16 and in Seoul on June 22. The members of their fan club, ARMY, began celebrating with one another ahead of the fan meeting in Seoul, and 150 of them enjoyed an after-party at a restaurant that’s been known to be frequented by the group. We go on the scene to check out the festivities that took place at the Gymnastics Stadium of the Olympic Park and 88 Grass Field as well as the after-party, where fans came together to celebrate the global K-pop sensation’s return home.
There are farmer-chefs presenting dishes that are unfamiliar to the busy urbanites who are used to instant food. Every morning, they head out to their small-scale farm, where they grow a wide variety of vegetables and herbs, and use the freshly picked produce to make healthy dishes at their restaurant. They are implementing a “farm-to-table” policy in order to offer food that’s fresh, high quality, and safe to their customers and allow them to experience the joy of eating food made with locally sourced ingredients. Tune in this week to learn more about their farm-to-table concept and their customers’ reactions!
Tango is known as a passionate dance! And there are people dancing tango for 12 hours a day for three days straight at the Busan Tango Marathon. The marathon taking place for the third time this year drew some 300 participants across the country and the world. There is no need to keep records of anything, as the participants aren’t there to win a prize. They are all there to simply enjoy dancing tango to the sensuous and passionate music played by the DJ in the ballroom. What is the appeal of tango, which is described as a “conversation between two dancers”? We take you to the Busan Tango Marathon to see the beauty of tango and meet the passionate dancers!
