Olympic Hall[edit]

In 2011, the Olympic Hall was renovated as a concert hall by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and the Korea Sports Promotion Foundation. The one-year remodeling project included an expanded stage for the 2,452 seat main hall, an exhibition room to showcase the history of Korean pop from the 1920s to the present; and a 240-seat small theater for indie musicians and new artists. It was reopened on 22 June 2011 with a celebration performance by veteran singers and K-pop groups including Super Junior, 2PM, 4Minute, and After School.[2][3]
