Popular South Korean boy bands CNBLUE and GOT7 will feature prominently in the One Asia Seoul Mega Concert to be held at Seoul Plaza in front of Seoul City Hall from 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday.
Chinese music producer and star singer Reno Wang and seasoned Japanese singer Ayumi Nakamura will also join the concert, as well as Philippine idol singer Julie Anne San Jose.
