The 2024 new year will start off with a bang with K-pop group performances from Enhypen, The Boyz, and OH MY GIRL! We will cover the details and how you'll be able to watch the performance, even if you're not in Seoul!
The annual tradition of bell ringing to bring in the New Year in South Korea is ramping up in style this New Year's Eve! The popular midnight bell-ringing celebration at Bosingak Pavilion in Seoul has been held every year since 1953 and is not paired with awesome K-pop performances!
The New Year's Eve countdown will be accompanied by the "Midnight Sun", a massive sphere structure measuring 12 meters across, will rise on Sejong-daero Road right after the bell rings. The Seoul Metropolitan Government will host the "2023 New Year's Eve Bell Countdown" on December 31 from 11 PM to 1 AM KST on New Year's Day between Bosingak and Sejong-daero.
New Year's Eve K-pop Concert
This year's New Year's Eve will feature a K-pop concert stage on Sejong-daero. No pre-registration is needed! It's FREE! The countdown will be broadcasted live on jumbotrons at three locations -- Bosingak, Dongdaemun Design Plaza and Sejong-daero – and can also be viewed on Live Seoul, a livestream YouTube channel run by the city. As stated earlier, the whole New Year's Eve countdown will begin at 11 PM on December 31 and end at 1 AM KST on January 1, 2024.
