The local organizing committee for IASPM XXI is delighted to announce the excursion as a post-conference program to be held on the 9th of July. The destination is the nearby city of Gyeongju, the capital of the ancient kingdom of Silla (57 BC – 935 AD). Specifically, however, we are heading to the “K-Pop Museum”. Unlike what the name suggests, the museum is about the history of Korean popular music in general, not specialized in the current global favorite genre of Korean pop. Please visit the museum’s website for more information at We hope the excursion is an entertaining and educational experience for all participating. The detailed excursion program looks like this:

  • 14.00 Departure from Daegu
  • 15.15 Arrival at K-pop museum
  • 17.00 Finishing K-pop museum tour
  • 18.00 Dinner
  • 20.13 Departing Gyeongju for Seoul
  • 22.19 Arrival at Seoul Station

The fee will be KRW 50,000 or USD 40 (approx.). The fee covers travel and admission. Evening meals and KTX to Seoul are excluded.

Please note that you are returning to Seoul from Gyeongju, not Daegu if you join the excursion. Please book a single ticket from Seoul to Daegu, not a return ticket when you make a reservation at KTX.
