This is the Busan Fireworks Festival that lit up the sky in the fall of 2019.
The festival, which was postponed due to the Corona 19 incident, is back after 3 years.
As planned, it was supposed to be held last month, but it was temporarily postponed due to the Itaewon disaster, and it was decided to hold it tonight.
Since a million people gather at each festival, security measures have been prepared in more detail.
There have been no injuries on the site so far, but this is to prepare for any unexpected situations.
The roads leading to the beach are managed step by step according to the crowd situation, and the number of CCTV on site has also increased from 16 to 64.
A police-developed congestion safety management vehicle will also be put into operation for the first time.

More than 5,000 security personnel, including ambulances and emergency medical booths were mobilized to prepare for human accidents.

The number of urban railways has increased by 240, and non-stop operation is also carried out when there are concerns about accidents due to crowds at stations close to the festival site.
With the largest crowd expected since the Itaewon disaster, this Busan Fireworks Festival is expected to be a holiday crowd control guide.
