Actually, Korean also celebrate the 15th day of the eighth month. They called it “Chu-Seok” and usually there will be various concerts in Seoul to mark this occasion.

South Korean spunky singer Rain (Jung Ji Hoon) is set to perform in a special Mid-Autumn Festival show organized by China Central Television on September 24 and 25 in Chengde City, east China’s Hebei Province.
Korean media quoted rain’s agency as saying: “Rain will spend this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival with fans in China. He will arrive in China on September 23 and leave on September 26.”
During his stay, Rain will also appear on a live broadcast for the 2007 Asian Art Festival in the city of Nantong, east China’s Jiangsu Province, together with his compatriots Shin Seung Hun, Kim Dong Wan BADA and Chinese stars Andy Lau and Jackie Chan.
Rain, who has been on an international tour since 2006, was scheduled to stage a concert in Shanghai this May. But the concert was postponed until October 6, the commencement of his second world tour.
The Mid-Autumn Festival is one of the most important family reunion celebrations in China. According to the Chinese lunar calendar, the 15th day of the 8th month is the exact middle of autumn, so it’s called the Mid-Autumn Festival. This year the festival falls on September 2.
