Seoul’s Gangnam-Gu is getting ready to celebrate itself and it’s pulling out all the stops and whistles!
From October 2 through October 7 at Samseong-dong’s Coex and Yeongdong Street the ‘2012 Gangnam Festival’ will take place.
The annual festival, the sixth in history so far, looks to celebrate hallyu, Korea’s fashion and more, much of which stems from the Gangnam area.
In addition to holding a Gangnam grand sale and a international peace marathon, a fashion contest for aspiring fashion designers will take place from October 4 through 6.
On October 7 at Coex, SNSD and Super Junior, who are currently serving as the spokesmodels for Gangnam-gu, will hold a special K-Pop performance.
Some 234 shops, restaurants, hotels, performances and more all will be holding special discounts (as much as 60 percent) and the public will be allowed to pick up special discount coupon books at Gangnam’s citizen centers.
