Top Korean singers and groups will hold concerts at the Yeosu Expo this weekend, the organizing committee said on Tuesday.

The concerts will be held at 8:30 p.m. on a special stage built for concerts during the expo period.

The special outdoor stage arena is capable of hosting an audience of 20,000.

For Rain, it will be his first big concert in eight months since he joined the Army last October.

According to the expo organizing committee, the singer is personally checking on lighting and sound and doing rehearsals to make it a perfect show. He is also planning a duet with singer Park Hyo-shin, who is also currently serving military duty as well.

“Rain’s concert will be held against the backdrop of fantastic lights coming from a mega cruise liner on the sea and the Expo venue. It will offer the best moment for the audience,” said an official of the organizing committee.

The concerts start at 8:30 p.m. and are free to Yeosu Expo visitors.
