I hate getting scooped by the radio station. Via Michael Simning and the "City of Light" program on GFN comes news of a huge concert tomorrow night in Gwangju to celebrate the winning bid for the 2015 Summer Universiade, also known as the World University Games. Because I spent a little time writing up the 2003 Games in Daegu and the North Korean cheerleaders, and poked a little fun last year at Gwangju, its losing bid, and it's crying citizens, I wanted to devote at least an equal amount of space to the city's celebrations. However, the news broke the same day as President Roh's suicide, and I assume the celebration planned for City Hall late on the 23rd had a different tone than expected. There has been little coverage of the announcement, so far as I can tell, though I'm sure I'll have plenty of material to work with after this concert.
It will run tomorrow night from 8:00 to 9:30
