Got an e-mail from WIN Media, the folks who are bringing us KBS and MBC. They're presenting a two-day event on October 11 and 12 involving Korean celebrities; actors and singers. On October 11 there will be a baseball game and on October 12 there will be a concert. Both events will be held at the Schaumburg Boomers baseball stadium.
I'm attaching the PDF announcement that WIN put together; it lists the actors and singers who will be taking part. Prices are certainly reasonable; $10 for the game and $20 for the concert (double for VIP seats).
I do recognize one of the actors: the guy who played Jeonghyo in A Tale of Two Sisters. He was the orphan guy who Seyeong ended up marrying. But since I watch mainly historicals and don't follow K-pop, I'm out of my element here...Anyway, names and photos are in the PDF.
Seems like kind of a big deal for WIN to hold this sort of event so I hope they get a good turnout. If I get updated information I'll pass it along.
Wanted to bump this thread since the events are this coming weekend.
Also wanted to attach the one-page fliers that the WIN Media people prepared to promote each one, but they're larger than ProBoards allows for a message attachment. But both fliers are posted on WIN's main website page, so just go here:
