According to a press release by PR agency The J Story on Thursday, Korean singers BoA, Kara, Se7en and Taeyang of idol group Big Bang will also be performing at the concert, which will take place August 29 at Incheon Munhak Worldcup Stadium.

Founded in 2009, the “Incheon Korea Music Wave” festival attracted some 50,000 fans to its premiere concert last summer which featured Rain, 2PM, Brown Eyed Girls, Girls’ Generation, M (Lee Min-woo), SHINee and Super Junior.
The music festival, which also included fan meetings and autograph signing sessions, drew heated publicity from various foreign media outlets in China, Japan, Hong Kong and Taiwan, and put the city of Incheon and Hallyu performers on the map.
Tickets for the “Incheon Korean Music Wave 2010” concert will go on sale on website (ticket.gmarket.co.kr) starting July 28. The concert will later air on MBC music show “Show! Music Central.”
