The Incheon Asian Games Organizing Committee (IAGOC) had a press conference at the National Museum of Modern Art in Seoul on August 27 and announced their plan for the opening and closing ceremonies of the 17th Asian Games.

Everyone is working hard to make the opening and closing ceremonies of the Incheon Asian Games, which begins in twenty days, festivals that build harmony and considerations for others.”and hoped that everyone pays close attention and will be able to participate in such a meaningful event.

 

Artistic director Jang explained, “unlike the previous Asian Games and Olympics that focused on flaunting their national power, such as 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games, 2012 London Olympics, and 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2014 Incheon Asian Games won’t simply show off a scale but try to deliver a clear message, “4.5 billion Asians’ dream, Asia as one.” He expressed his conviction that the ceremonies will rouse all participants’ empathy with story-telling performances and unique choreography in harmony with Korean styled ideas and creativity.

 

Jang announced detailed programs and artists for the ceremonies. The opening ceremony will start at 6pm at the Incheon Asiad Main Stadium and it will be composed of welcoming events, which will begin with poet Go Eun’s recitation of “Asiad Song” along with soprano Jo Su-Mi and Incheon Metropolitan Citizens Choir’s song, opening performances, cultural performances, torch lighting, and congratulatory performances. The main part of the opening performance will develop a story composed of four acts, from “Asia long time ago,” “Asia meeting through the sea,” “Asia as family and friends,” and to “Asia as one and future joining with today,” and Hallyu stars Chang Dong-Geon and Kim Soo-Hyun will lead the stories. Chang, a prominent Korean actor, will narrate the first story and Kim, also a famous actor, will appear through a video during the second stage.

 

During the cultural performances of the opening ceremony, five musical stars, such as Ok Joo-Hyun and Michael Lee, will sing and classic artists, like violist Richard Yong-Jae O’Neil and cellist Song Young-Hoon, will follow with their beautiful playing. As part of the cultural performances, Korean traditional classic artist AhnSook-Seon’s “Pansori” will deliver a unique harmony of Korean traditional and classic music. Many K-Pop stars, such as JYJ, EXO, CNBlue, SISTAR, and PSY, will light up the ceremonies, and there are high expectations for Chinese pianist Lang Lang’s collaboration performance with K-Pop stars. In particular, JYJ, the PR ambassadors of the Incheon Asian Games, will sing “Only One”, the theme song of the Incheon Asian Games, as the torch is lit and the congratulatory performances of the opening ceremony will come to a great finale with PSY and other popular stars.
