SM Town Kpop Tour!

In collaboration with SM Town, Visit Seoul has organised tours for SM Town Studio so foreign tourists may enjoy and experience the culture.

The tour also includes a 60 minutes dance class and a 30 minutes individual photo shoot! The song for the dance classes vary on a day to day basis, but you’ll be able to pick the one you like.

For those interested you can read up more here. It’s organized by Visit Seoul and entirely free for foreigners but you’ll have to be lucky as they select people based on a lottery basis.

FYI, the tours normally cost 30,000 ($25.53 USD) and dance classes are 80,000 ($60.08 USD). Don’t worry though as the tours are expected to continue till the end of 2016.
