Hosted by the Korean Cultural Center in China with support from institutions including the Embassy of the ROK in China, Korea Cultural Performance Day, a 2-hour performance of traditional South Korean music and dance and modern cultural projects, was unveiled on Monday in Beijing.

Giving a speech in fluent Chinese, Han Jae-heuk, head of the Korean Cultural Center in China, pointed out at the opening that the performance was a good opportunity for person-to-person cultural exchange between South Korea and China.

He mentioned that the performance was relevant as next year marks the 25th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and South Korea, as well as the 10th anniversary of the founding of the Korean Cultural Center in Beijing.

Hundreds came to attend Monday's performance.

The show kicked off with the traditional Korean Three Drums Dance, performed by nine female performers dressed in colorful traditional costumes.

Other activities included traditional dances performed by the Jun Eun-ja dance troupe, a performance of the popular South Korean musical Bibap, a Taekwondo performance by the Korea National Taekwondo Demo Team and a fashion show showing off clothing designs by South Korean designer Jun Yang-bae that made use of "hanji," a special type of South Korean paper.
