I request insight on the legalities of building an amusement park for the general public, based on a highly popular K-Pop entity, such as the likes of BTS (방탄소년단). Is such a commercial effort possible?
Provided it is, would I need a contract with their team to begin with, in terms or permission and the like? Naturally, I understand that this project is different from fan-work on the Internet, as it is, after all, a commercial project, which is why I wondered if a license of sorts would be required.
Additionally, I would love to curate stalls in the amusement park for merchandise, both official and unofficial (fan-made) related to the band. For the unofficial, fan-made merch, would permission from people who created it suffice? And for official merchandise, what would the procedure to set up stores be?
As for employment of local workers, will me and my team be able to decide contracts, or will there be a set directory to be followed?
Please note that the place to set up the amusement park in is India.
I would, to the greatest level, appreciate your help answering the above. I’m afraid I will not be available on telephone, and I am deeply sorry for any inconvenience that causes you.

A1. Yes such entity is possible. You need a license for running the same.
A2. It depends upon your title to the land beneath. If owned, or long leased, then you may let the stalls on leave and license basis. I would advice that the fan made stalls be given out on daily pay out basis and done on a official basis and may be sponsored.
A3. You may set up your own contract, provided it is in consonance with the labour laws and ensuring al legal compliances.
I am also in concurrent views with my learned friend Mr. Mehta whose advise is as aforestated
