PLAY K-POP (Jeju)

We came here a few years as part of our tour itinerary – my memory of it may be a wee bit hazy, but by no means inaccurate! Jeju Jungmun Resort presents the digital theme park “PLAY K-POP” where new media technology and K-pop music meet. The Live Holo Concert, a hologram concert, gives more […]

JYP Entertainment

UPDATE: A source on Trazy said that this HQ has been sold off and JYP has a new training center near Cheongdam Station. Not exactly sure how accurate this is since this center is still listed on JYP’s main website, but you can check out Trazy’s website to see this information for yourself. If you are a […]
