The cancellation of events due to MERS this past summer got you down? To make up for lost time (and low sales), the Visit Korea Committee is pushing forward the Korea Grand Sale and making it better than ever. Divided up into themes of “must eat,” “must see,” “must buy” and “must do,” more than 250 companies are taking part in the special discount program that will offer large reductions on everything from brand name items, theme park passes, airplane tickets, hotels and more. And no, it’s not just a buy one, get one half off event. We’re talking 70% off for all flights on Jeju Air, up to 70% off at Lotte Duty Free and additional free nights at major hotels. This year’s Korea Grand Sale includes various K-pop events such as a JYJ Membership Week which will run until the 30th. Fans of JYJ can enjoy behind the scenes, never before seen photos of JYJ at the Seoul Art Museum as well as a fan meeting with Jun-su and Yoo-chun on August 25th at the Jamsil Indoor Gymnasium. SNSD, CN Blue, BTOB, Beast, Block B, EXID and Shinee are just a few of the performers that are scheduled to perform at the Grand Hallyu Festival happening in conjunction with the sale on September 4th at Olympic Stadium. Other programs include Date with the Stars and The Incheon Hallyu Tourism Concert, just to name a few. Think it’d be hard to get access? Nope, just head straight towards koreagrandsale.co.kr, download coupons and you’re good to go!
PS. Discounts only hold valid for foreign passport holders, so try not to make your Korean friends too jealous!
