K-pop concert to support victims of Japan earthquake

A free K-pop concert will be held Dec. 15 in Sendai in Japan’s Miyagi Prefecture to support eastern Japan’s earthquake victims.

It will be the first concert to be held in the area affected by the Japanese earthquake.

The concert will be hosted by the culture center of the Korean embassy in Japan and will be held at Sendai’s Sun Plaza hall.

The concert features trot singer Park Hyun-bin, singer Zero, male duo December, vocal group Code V and girl group Girl’s Day. In addition, popular J-pop girl band SDN48 is set to make an appearance at the show.

While they are in Japan, Girl’s Day will visit affected areas and victims of the disaster.
All musicians participating in the concert will appear free of charge in line with the concert organizers’ intentions.

Residents from districts in Tohoku, a region where Miyagi Prefecture is located, were invited, and a chartered bus will transport 195 locals to the event. Also attending the show will be the Korean ambassador to Japan.

A representative from the Korean embassy said, “Through the free concert, we want to encourage and support the victims of the earthquake.”
