This year’s special events include a cosplay show, ice sculpture show, cocktail show, film music orchestra concert, Hanbok fashion show and national B-boy dance competition for the enjoyment of all family, couples and friends.
In addition, Korean and foreign tourists can enjoy various events at Gwangalli Beach during the Busan Sea Festival from August 1-8.
