The concert, which saw a crowd of over 4,000 see K-pop band NCT Dream and a host of Vietnamese stars perform at the Tien Son Sport Center, was organised under Lotte’s promise to bring Korean culture to Vietnam and promote cultural exchange.

The downtown duty free store in Da Nang will be Lotte’s fourth store in Vietnam – after openings at Da Nang International Airport in May 2017, Cam Ranh International Airport in June 2018 and Hanoi’s Noi Bai International Airport in July 2019 – and the first downtown duty free shop on the central coast of Vietnam.
