[Yeosu Expo] More Exciting with Rain
There is a day when you can comfortably watch Yeosu Expo exhibitions without bustling crowd, and see your favorite singers closely. When you simply sit and wait in the International Pavillion, the steet performance teams come to perform, and the artificial lightning from cloudy sky seems real. It is a story when it rains at Yeosu Expo. With the rainy season begining, there are various hidden contents that get better and more exciting in the rain at Yeosu Expo. ◇ 'Expo Pop Festival' under Expo Digital Gallery Expo Pop Festival on special stage at 8 pm everyday. Top K-Pop stars are heating up the summer nights at Yeosu Expo, but with huge crowd, it is difficult to see singers' performances from close. When it rains, the situation changes. When there is a heavy rain, Expo Pop Festival is not held at the Cruise Park special stage capable of holding more than 20,000 people, but at a temporary stage under Expo Digital Gallery(EDG). EDG stage is comparatively smaller and is installed close to the seats, making it possible for the audiences to see every move of the singers. Especially the singers' performances are played live on LED screen of EDG section, uniting the audiences and the singers into one. On 18th, YB performed on EDG stage because of rainfall, gained huge popularity. Also on 30th, Jang Sa-ik's performance touched everyone's heart. ◇ Self Visiting 'Street performance' To brighten the boredom of the visitors while waiting in line to watch exhibitions, there are 130 street performances everyday at Yeosu Expo. 35 street performance teams including Stilt Juggler, Multi Clown, Brass Band, etc, perform at different sites around the Expo, making it difficult to watch all these performances at once. But it is possible when it rains. All the street performance teams come to the Intenational Pavillion and EDG. On the rainy day, you don't have to walk around to catch the street performances, they come to you beforehand. It is a lot of fun to watch street performances while taking shelter from the rain. ◇ Realistic 'Big O Show Artificial Lightning' and comfortably watching exhibitions On the cloudy day, 'Artificial Lightning' of Big O Show seems more realistic and due to less crowds, you can comfortably watch through exhibitions. You never have to worry about the sun burn. It is like killing three birds with one stone.
