Songgolmae recently surprised longtime fans by announcing that its former founding members – Bae Cheol-soo and Gu Chang-mo – will be reuniting for a concert tour for the first time in 40 years. They will start in Seoul and stop in several other Korean cities.
The two song remakes will first be played at a press conference for Songgolmae’s upcoming concert at 1:30 p.m. on July 6, which will also be streamed live via Dream Maker Entertainment’s YouTube channel (youtube.com/dreammakerlive1). The songs will be available on various streaming platforms soon after.
The first leg of Songgolmae’s tour will be for two days starting Sept. 11 at the SKPO Dome in Olympic Park, south of Seoul.
