Arirang Rhapsody, a cultural exchange exhibition featuring Chinese and South Korean artists, will open at the Korean Cultural Center and the Manet Art Museum in Beijing on Saturday.

This marks the first time the exhibition, which debuted at the Jeju Museum of Contemporary Art in South Korea in July, has come to China.

According to the exhibition's organizers, Arirang Rhapsody seeks to present the lives of the people of Jeju Island, South Korea, through the works of artists from both countries, while also acting as a platform for cultural exchange.

The eight South Korean artists taking part in the exhibition, all of whom are from Jeju Island,  cover three generations, including modern artist Byun Shi-ji, first generation Minjung artist Kang Yo-bae and 1980s hyper-realism representative Kang Hyung-koo.

Veteran Chinese romanticism artist Li Fuyi numbers among the nine Chinese artists at the exhibition.

The Korean Cultural Center section of the exhibition is scheduled to come to an end on November 4, while the Manet art Museum section is scheduled to run until November 20.
