Haven’t heard of the mass games?
Don’t know what all the fuss is about? 

First performed in 2002, the Arirang Mass Games feature over 100,000 participants in a 90-minute display of gymnastics, dance, acrobatics, and dramatic performance. This, together with music and other effects, all comes together wrapped in a highly politicized and synchronized package.

The 90-minute performance is held of an evening and features the ‘largest picture in the world’ – a giant mosaic of individual students each holding a book whose pages links with their neighbours’ to make up one gigantic scene.
