[News] Big Bang on 12 Top Reasons Why 2012 a great year to Visit Korea!

Whether you’re a shopaholic, a workaholic, a K-Pop fanatic, a foodie, a filmmaker, or just plain superstitious: 2012 is a good year to be here. 2012, the year the world supposedly ends. All the more reason to visit Korea — the Land of Morning Calm — to soothe your terror before the world is destroyed by a meteorite.

And 2012 is also the Year of the Dragon, according to the Chinese zodiac. And not only that, but it’s also the Year of the Black Dragon, which only comes once around every 60 years. But there’s more than cool East Asian symbolism to make 2012 a great year for visiting Korea.

There are 12 reasons, listed below:

1. It’s Visit Korea Year
2. Korea Grand Sale
3. Hallyu Madness
  • 2012 is looking to be a good year for K-Pop. 
If you’re a devoted follower, you might already know that there are several big comebacks in the works, like an upcoming Big Bang concert, or Se7en’s new album. You might also know that 2ne1 will be releasing their collaborations with will.i.am.

But if all this is hard to remember, you can just remember one: the 21st Seoul Music Awards, which will be held on January 19, 2012, at the Olympic Gymnastics Arena, which will be the K-Pop event of the next year.

And it just so happens that the date of the awards ceremony coincides with the period of the Korea Grand Sale. Coincidence? Or clever maneuvering on the part of the Visit Korea Committee? Doesn’t matter; saw Big Bang!

4. The IFC Fulfill Its Destiny
5. Celebrating Food
6. The 2012 Expo in Yeosu
7. Because it’s not just about Seoul this year
