K-pop video with sign language for deaf Vietnamese people debuts

VOV.VN - A K-pop video that sees artists use sign language specifically for Vietnamese people with hearing impairment was recently launched to mark International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD), which falls on December 3 annually.

The project has been jointly organised by the Republic of Korea’s Embassy and the Korean Cultural Centre in Vietnam with the aim of helping the deaf local community enjoy greater access to Korean culture.

The video features six deaf Vietnamese people perform four famous K-pop songs, including “Permission to dance” and “Spring day” by popular boyband BTS, “I” by singer Taeyeon, and “Day by day” by boyband Big Bang.

Nguyen Thi Thao, a participant who performed in the video, said she is happy to bring K-pop songs closer to her friends in a special manner.

“I expect Vietnamese people with hearing impairment will be able to access K-pop products like others,” said the performer.

The video has been introduced through the Facebook pages of the Republic of Korea’s Embassy and the Korean Cultural Centre in Vietnam through the websites https://www.facebook.com/KoreanEmbassyinVietnam and https://www.facebook.com/vietnamkcc, respectively.
