On October 17, MBC’s “Infinity Challenge’s” music festival opened at the city of Paju’s Peaceful World Park in Im Jin Gak. Despite the production staffs’ efforts to maintain the secrecy of the location, the music festival’s location was leaked to the public causing 35,000 people to attend the music concert.
