A busy month, the highlight probably being IU’s performance at Wembley Arena. Glastonbury ticketholders will also be able to see Seventeen on the main Pyramid stage. For those who follow hallyu stars from an earlier generation, you can meet former FinKL member Ok Joo-hyun who is in town to mark the London production of the Korean musical Marie Curie. Jane Portal and Beth McKillop launch their Precious Beyond Measure, and Kim Youngna will no doubt be available to sign her Korean Art since 1945 down in Brighton. Plus three regional universities celebrate a Korea Day and New Malden celebrates Dano.
