expressed, "While it is regrettable that the original plan to 
conclude the Saemangeum Jamboree with a K-pop performance at Jeonju 
World Cup Stadium had to be changed due to the altered path of the 
typhoon, the spirit of Saemangeum Jamboree will remain strong

the 11th will mark an emotionally touching finale to the Jamboree, 
where over 40,000 Scouts will unite to experience the allure and 
essence of K-culture."
