Incheon, officially the Incheon Metropolitan City (인천광역시), is a city located in northwestern South Korea, bordering Seoul and Gyeonggi to the east. Inhabited since the Neolithic, Incheon was home to just 4,700 people when it became an international port in 1883. Today, about 3 million people live in the city, making it Korea’s third most-populous city after Seoul and Busan. The city’s growth has been assured in modern times with the development of its port due to its natural advantages as a coastal city and its proximity to the South Korean capital. It is part of the Seoul Capital Area, along with Seoul itself and Gyeonggi Province, forming the world’s fourth largest metropolitan area by population.
Incheon has since led the economic development of Korea by opening its port to the outside world, ushering in the modernization of Korea as a center of industrialization. In 2003, the city was designated as Korea’s first free economic zone. Since then, large local companies and global enterprises have increasingly invested in the Incheon Free Economic Zone, including Samsung which chose Songdo International City as its new investment destination for its bioindustry.
As an international city, Incheon has held numerous large-scale international conferences, such as the Incheon Global Fair & Festival in 2009. The 17th Asian Games Incheon 2014 was also held in Incheon on 19 September 2014. Incheon has established itself as a major transportation hub in northeast Asia with the world-renowned Incheon International Airport and Incheon Port. The city is also home to the Green Climate Fund, an international organization addressing environmental issues.
INK: Incheon K-POP Concert (INK) is Incheon’s celebrated Korean Wave festival that has continued for 9 years with great success since it began in 2009.
INK, which is hosted by Incheon City and the Incheon Tourism Organization, is a festival attended by people from all over the world. Leading K-POP singers and musicians come together in this festival, whose goal is to market Incheon city as the city of K-POP to attract more foreign tourists and also offer Incheon citizens an opportunity to enjoy K-POP concert.
INK this year is once again attracting high public attention. In particular, INK this year will collaborate with 2017 Incheon Food Culture Expo, which will be held in Munhak Stadium and Dongmun Square. In addition to the great performance of leading K-POP singers, it will offer the audience with even greater opportunities to enjoy the occasion.
