Singer Bada in Bid to Boost Birthrate

July 28, 2006

Eight years after her debut, the pop singer Bada is preparing to market her first solo concert, "Showman aLive," with a novel twist. The concert will be held at Samseong-dong’s COEX convention center in Seoul on July 29, and the singer and her management plan to do their bit for the nation’s paltry birthrate by encouraging people to have children under the slogan "the happiness of manwon." Concertgoers who have more than two children will be given a "manwon" or W10,000 note (US$1=W954), according to Network Live, the organizer of the concert.
