See you in 2021

With the annual New Year's Eve concert and count down to the New Year out of the question amid the coronavirus pandemic, the Sejong Center for the Performing Arts in central Seoul has installed a "Hug Bear" that says "See You," to express its hopes of greeting a greater number of audience members next year with more concerts and performances. The bear will be exhibited until Jan. 18.

Meanwhile, the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra that usually holds an annual year-end concert said it will stream online one of the special concerts it recently held at the Seodaemun Prison History Museum in central Seoul at 11:25 p.m. on Dec. 31, titled "Miracle Seoul."
