Hoi An set to host Korean cultural day 2023
VOV.VN - A mixture of lantern displays, traditional music performances, songs, and dances put on by Vietnamese and Korean artists will serve to light up the Korean cultural day held on December 9 in the ancient city of Hoi An.
The occasion will be held at the An Hoi Sculpture Garden and will provide a chance for visitors to experience both Korean and Vietnamese culture and cuisine.
Visitors will therefore join the event to make kimchi and lanterns, try on hanbok, play folk games, and draw masks.
One Commune One Product (OCOP) products, hand-made items, and souvenirs of Hoi An city will be showcased during the course of the one-day event.
Furthermore, a K-Pop dance performance is expected to bring a festive atmosphere to the UNESCO-recognised world heritage city. A music gala will conclude the Korean cultural day in Hoi An, drawing the participation of Korean singer Jinju, Unwreckable, and SDG Crew dance groups, along with several famous Vietnamese artists.
The Korean cultural day was first held in the central province of Quang Nam back in 2017. The annual event attracts thousands of local residents, along with Korean and other foreign tourists every year.
