Dream Concert is an annual Korean music concert that has been held since 1995. Entering its 28th event, Dream Concert always presents South Korean top artists and musicians.

Other idols that will appear are AB6IX, ACE, Oh My Girl, ONF, WEi, Weki Meki, Forte di Quattro, LABOUM, MOMOLAND, Ha Sung-woon, and aespa.
Dream Concert 2021 will be held online. The decision was taken to spread a message and support to the world engulfed by the Covid-19 pandemic, even though the staff had stated that they would hold a live concert at the Seoul World Cup Stadium.
This makes Dream Concert 2021 the second time the annual event has been held online since 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Meanwhile, the venue for the 2022 Dream Concert has not been officially announced until now. Dream Concert 2022 is confirmed to be held June 18 in Seoul.
In mid-April 2022, the South Korean government lifted almost all Covid-19 restrictions, including social distancing rules. However, the government still requires residents to wear masks, including indoors.
Furthermore, restrictions on eating in public facilities, such as cinemas will also be lifted starting April 25.
The move comes after South Korea has passed the peak of the Omicron variant with daily cases dropping below 100,000 cases last week. This figure is down from its peak in mid-March which reached over 620 thousand cases.
More than 86 percent of South Korea’s 51 million population have also received complete vaccinations and the majority of its citizens have received booster injections of the Covid-19 vaccine.
