Initiated in 2012 in China, this event will be held simultaneously at Beijing's "The Place" shopping center and the Seoul Plaza in Seoul from June 1 to 5.

Special fan zones will give the public a chance to watch the tournament matches. Additionally, a range of interactive activities will connect tennis fans from around the world.

Visitors will be immersed in the Roland-Garros experience and can take part in the activities that aim to share the history of the tournament and let fans see first-hand what clay-court tennis is all about.

Unlike the Chinese capital having seen the event in the past four years, Seoul welcomes it for the first time this year.
