Girls' Generation and Super Junior will take part in the Asia Song Festival to be held in Seoul in October, representing South Korea.
The festival, the sixth of its kind this year, will draw Asian pop groups and singers from nine countries in Asia including South Korea, Japan, China, Taiwan and Hong Kong. It will begin at 6 p.m. at Sangam World Cup Stadium in northwestern Seoul.
Among the participants are Gackt and Mihimaru GT from Japan, Li Ming from Hong Kong, K-Otic from Thailand, Ho Ngoc Ha from Vietnam and Agnes Monica from Indonesia.
The annual song festival won international fame after it was broadcast for the first time in 30 countries last year.
The Korea Foundation for International Cultural Exchange, the organizer of the festival, plans to announce the second list of two top Korean groups and an Asian singer to be present there in mid-August.
Admissions tickets will be available free on the festival's Web site (www.asf.or.kr) in early September.
