The news has finally been confirmed by Glorious Entertainment, so now we can report on it! Ji Chang Wook is scheduled to return to Vietnam to participate in the “KPop Concert – Daebak Vietnam 2019” on 24 August. This event was cancelled by the Organizing Committee on 22 August due to local weather and other contributing factors that made it difficult to proceed with the full event.
The event is just one of a number of activities being held to celebrate 27 years since the establishment of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and the Republic of Korea. The “Daebak Concert” will be held at 7:00pm (local time) at the Mỹ Đình National Stadium in Hanoi.
Joining Ji Chang Wook at this concert will be Korean girl group Momoland and boy group Golden Child; Korean duo Bolbbalgan4; Korean soloist Park Hye Won; and Vietnamese pop stars Noo Phước Thịnh and Tóc Tiên. In addition, former South Korean football player and current manager of the Vietnam national football team Park Hang Seo will act as emcee for the event.
It is rumoured that Ji Chang Wook may have a collaboration stage with Vietnamese singers, and may even perform a song in the native language. According to Glorious Entertainment, “Ji Chang Wook is working hard to learn simple Vietnamese sentences in order to communicate with fans in this August show.”

In addition, according to the promoters of the “Daebak Concert,” a portion of the concert’s ticket revenue will be reserved for charity purposes — a fund is currently being set up in Ji Chang Wook’s name (“Ji Chang Wook Friendship Journey”) to help the residents of the remote and disadvantaged areas of Vietnam.

Because we do not have ‘boots on the ground’ as with other countries where Wook has toured in the past, we recommend that you contact the Ji Chang Wook Vietnam Facebook page with any questions: Ji Chang Wook Vietnam Fan Page or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
