 A KOREAN cultural event will be staged tomorrow morning at the Don Bosco Technical School in Port Moresby.

South Korean Ambassador to PNG Lee Whie-jin said the highlight of the event would be the performance by Hanmadang, the Korean Traditional Performers Group based in Brisbane, Australia.

“Handamang is a group of people passionate about Korean traditional culture,” he said.

“They are focused on presenting various inherited forms of Korean traditional performing arts and embracing the contemporary performing arts evolved from diverse cultural background.”

Lee said the group would also perform at the Daewoo E&C company base at the PNG LNG site and as part of the Caritas Technical Secondary School cultural show on Saturday.

“Papua New Guinea has hundreds of different traditional dances and art and this occasion is a great way to for Papua New Guineans to experience and appreciate the Korean traditional performance and art,” he said.
