South Korea’s rockers, rappers and other media personalities will gather at Hongdae — Seoul’s popular hipster hotspot — to raise their voices against the government’s controversial move to author history textbooks.

Dream Factory, the entertainment agency led by singer Lee Seung-hwan, said the musicians will hold a free concert at 7 p.m. Wednesday, it was reported. The concert, “Don’t cover one of your eyes,” is aimed at ages 15 to 29.

Participating musicians include Lee, 10cm, Garion, Daybreak, Pia, Rock ‘N’ Roll Radio, Tatles, cartoonist Kang Full and journalist Joo Ji-nu. ”

All the guests agreed to take to the stage as they decided to cheer the young adults who decided to challenge the adults in higher seats who wield unfairness and act unethically,” media reports quoted Dream Factory as saying.

“We want to show the ‘adults’ who try to cover our eyes that ‘we will only learn the legitimately written history and are monitoring the situation with eyes wide open’.”

The government on Tuesday said it will push ahead with writing history textbooks for middle and high school students.
