The venue of Incheon K-Pop Concert 2012 was packed with K-pop fans from home and abroad. Information booths and dedicated entrances were set up to help spectators from foreign countries, including Asia, France, Spain and the U.K., and foreign guides were on hand to make sure things went smoothly.

The 40,000-strong audience roared at the appearance of each performer and bore placards emblazoned with the names of their favorite singers.
