K-Pop and Magic to Go On Stage
K-pop stars and a globally renowned magician will jointly hold a three-day concert series, “SM Summer Town Festival,” July 15-17 in Seoul.

Kangta, TVXQ, The Trax, TSZX, Super Junior and Black Beat, all of which are fronted by agency SM Entertainment, will perform their hit songs and dynamic dance moves on the same stage set in the 70,000-seat Olympic Main Stadium in Jamsil, eastern Seoul.

The concerts, which start at 7 p.m. and last around three hours, will be different from other shows as they will feature magician Franz Harary. He will emcee the concerts, mixing in famous tricks like making singers disappear or transforming them into something unexpected.

Harary gained his reputation through performing such tricks on high-profile celebrities such as Michael Jackson, N Sync, Usher, Janet Jackson and Boyz II Men during their concerts.

At the open-air plaza outside the stadium in the sports complex, a theme park type of a festival venue will be established, in which fans can enjoy a variety of booths open from noon until 5 p.m. each day before the shows begin.

Sets from music video clips for "Rising Sun" by TVXQ and "Twins" by Super Junior will be recreated in the plaza, so that the fans will be able to take souvenir photos.

On an open stage, instructors will teach some popular K-pop dance moves. Graffiti artists will teach street art techniques as well.
