Posted: 19 Apr 2014 08:00 PM PDT



Lady Gaga and Psy will be joining 2NE1 and Big Bang on a summer music festival in South Korea.

The South Korea Festival will be held at Seoul's Olympic stadium from August 15 to 16, 2014. This event will feature the big names in K-Pop and their ironic anticipated unexpected great performances will be showcased. Lady Gaga will perform on the second day of the festival. 

On Lady Gaga's first concert in South Korea in April 2012, many religious groups voiced out that they wanted her show to be cancelled as they believed that she was promoting homosexuality and pornography. As a result, only 18 years old and older were allowed to watch her concert.

As to the question if her performance on the festival will be banned just like what happened in 2012, a spokeswoman for the state rating board said, "We don't know yet the contents and details of her performance for the festival, so it will be too early to decide. However, if the performance will be seen inappropriate for under 18 years old, we will bestow the same decision."
