Feast of confession hotter than fireworks, Busan Fireworks Festival

Suyeong-gu, Busan, South Korea

To leave memories that will last a lifetime, everyone will dream of a trip. There is a festival where you can add your confession to your loved one. Opportunity to communicate the heart with fireworks against the background of moist night sea and sweet music. I want to love you. Let's go to Busan night sea where Busan Fireworks Festival is held every year.
Confession of love delivered by fireworks

In October, the Busan Fireworks Festival is held every year. This year, two days from October 23, the theme of `` The beginning of love is confession '' was unchanged, and the city of Busan Gwangalli was brilliantly embroidered. However, we have prepared a much richer composition and various programs than before, and above all, we changed the way of directing the fireworks and greatly expanded the space of the fireworks show.

The fireworks show, the center of the festival, has become more colorful and has made the hearts of the viewers more chewy. First of all, he invited the world's best overseas flame team to be enthralled. In addition, the way the fireworks were produced has not changed much over the past 10 years. Unlike the previous one, which was held for 50 minutes under one theme, it took a 5-minute break after the 15-minute invitational fireworks show, and increased the concentration by directing it to the melody that suits the theme 'The beginning of love is confession' for 35 minutes.

During the five-minute break, special events caught the attention of the people. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the normalization of Korean-Japanese relations, a fire broke out on the Tsushima Island closest to us beyond the Korea Strait.
The fireworks you see in person are even more impressive.
The stage, which is bigger than ever, was also noticed. This year, Busan Fireworks Festival is the largest in history. Considering that visitors were unable to watch properly due to the concentration of visitors, the stage of the '-' shape, which was spread around Gwangan Bridge, was expanded to the shape of a 'U' band after Dongbaek Island, Gwangalli and Igidae. As a result, the stage production was also changed, so the fireworks were much richer than before.

Cultural arts, street performances and eve events are also abundant.
The Busan Fireworks Festival was only one day on the 24th, but on the 23rd, the day before, it was no less enjoyable. The biggest change is the eve concert. Last year's eve concert was held at Gwangalli Beach at 7:00 pm on the 23rd, which had nothing to do with the fireworks festival. Kim Beom-soo, Kim Tae-woo, Park Ji-min, Bernard Park, Son Seung-yeon, Jeong Dong-ha, Ali, and other singers gave me a more powerful stage than the fireworks. After the last night's concert, a 15-minute “overnight fireworks show” was held to inspire the festival.
Citizens enjoying the Busan Fireworks Festival
On the day of the festival, abundant sights were waiting for us. In addition to occupying good seats, young artists performed street performances from 2:00 pm for those who gathered from early times because they missed expectations.
