BUSAN, South Korea — After a week of bitter cold, a bit of relief comes in for the weekend, and though the forecast seems to be rainy and overcast, there’s a lot of fun options to keep spirits up.
Saturday night is shaping up to be an interesting sight around Kyungsung, as Santacon will bring a few hundred Santas to the area, while an ’80s theme costume dance night coincides at the same time. The 25th installment of Wordz Only is also taking place Saturday night, and a new opera, basketball and a few new exhibitions around the area mean there’s plenty to do and see.
