Pop Stars Fly in for Performance One by One

While pop singers fly into Seoul one by one for their performance at a gala concert at the Olympic Main Stadium at Jamsil in southeastern Seoul on Monday (Nov. 12) to promote the 2002 FIFA World Cup Korea/Japan – tickets for the festival are selling like hotcakes. Seo Tai-ji, a 'genius' Korean rapper, who has been out of the limelight in recent years, returned home on Monday (Nov. 5) and Cui Jian, a leading Korean-Chinese singer, was to arrive in Seoul on Thursday for his first performance in Korea.

Latino music star Ricky Martin, who raised the musical curtain for the 1998 FIFA World Cup in France, and Michael Bolton, along with the British band Def Leppard, will fly into Seoul on the eve of the music festival, to be telecast by the Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) of Korea and the BS-NTV of Japan.
