Haps Weekend Picks April 18,19,20
It's the weekend once again, so get on out and enjoy the spring air with a host of great events this weekend.

BUSAN, South Korea -- Mid-April is here with a host of events lined up for this weekend, though due to the events that transpired in Jindo, some events may be canceled or postponed. Our thoughts and prayers are also with the families and victims of those affected by the tragedy.

This weekend is highlighted by the TEDx Youth event taking place at the Busan International Foreign School in Gijang with a great line-up of speakers take the stage for the first-of-its-kind event in the city. The ever-popular Mamma Mia also hits town for a 10-day run with a foreign cast which is a great chance to check out a musical if it's something you've been missing from home. Some other great local music, comedy and sports are also on tap, so head on out and enjoy the weekend.

You can check out the Haps Calendar for everything going on around the area. Enjoy!
