KBS’ PD Park Tae Ho, who will be taking on the role of the director for the show stated in the press conference that was held in Manhattan on the 11th that, “Though I’ve been well-known for my role in Open Concert, we’ve created a new special program to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Korea joining the UN, as well as the spread of the Hallyu Wave,” and “It will be an event that will showcase Korea’s brand image in New York, the center of the world.”
