The first day will feature a classical music concert starring Taekyung Lim, a true prince of the local musical community, and Minji Kim, a "Top 10" singer of the final round of 'The Korea Got Talent program'.

Then, on August 3rd, the piano genius Bora Jin along with the Aloysius Orchestra will play beautiful pieces together, which will be followed by a mini concert performed by 'Sweet Sorrow', a famous four-man a cappella group.

The fifth and final day will feature 'The Kim Jakyung Opera' performing L'elisir d'amore (Elixir of Love), the moving opera composed by the Italian Domenico Gaetano Maria Donizetti in 1832.

In addition to the "Viva! Summer Concert", there will be small boutique harp ensembles in the duty free area from July 20th to August 4th as a special event for the summer peak season.

President & CEO Chang-Soo Jung said, "The number of visitors will reach a record-high this summer and early August will be the peak period. For that reason we scheduled the performances for the first week of that month. I truly wish the series of performances will become a memorable event for our visitors and make their stay more enjoyable."
