Regarding concerns about the damage to the grass field at the Seoul World Cup Stadium due to the closing ceremony of the 2023 World Scout Jamboree and the K-Pop Super Live concert, the ministry emphasized, “We have budgeted for the restoration of the stadium from the planning stage of the concert and will do our best to support the restoration.”
“As soon as the demolition of the stages and other concert-related facilities is completed, the Seoul Facilities Corporation will closely examine the ground conditions and begin emergency repairs, such as replanting the dedicated grass.”
