Lotte Family Concert has grown to be one of Korea’s major cultural events attracting both local and foreign audiences. Last year’s concert that opened for two days in June in Seoul were attended by some 100,000 fans including 1,000 VIP customers of the travel retailer.

This year’s concert has already drawn much interest from K-pop fans across the world. A teaser video, revealing the performer lineup for just day 1 and 2 of the concert, hit 10,000 views in just two days since the release on June 18.

Lotte Duty Free said it will continue to strive to make the Korean tourism industry more competitive by providing cultural events.
