BUSAN, South Korea — After a week of being cooped up with typhoons and rain, the weekend forecast is looking great, and there are loads of things to do this weekend outdoors to be able to enjoy the sun.
Lots of great music highlights the weekend before Chuseok, so get out and enjoy it before next week's traffic insanity puts a damper on your travel plans. There's also baseball, UFC, a cafe and bakery show and the Biennale beach party to choose from, as well as plenty of other exhibitions and events all over the city.
You can check out the Haps Calendar for everything going on around the area. Enjoy!
