SEOUL – Beautiful images of Việt Nam’s world heritages are being introduced to the South Korean people at an exhibition at Yoondang Arts Hall in Seoul.
This is the first photo exhibition to be co-held by the Vietnamese and Korean governments and aims at popularising Vietnamese images in Korea.
Some 100 pictures taken by Vietnamese photographers, which are on display at the exhibition, have recorded precious moments at the 16 Vietnamese picturesque locations which have been recognised as world heritage sites by UNESCO.
The displayed pictures were selected from the best entries sent to world heritage photo contests in recent years by Việt Nam’s Department of Fine Arts, Photography and Exhibitions.
Through the exhibition, Koreans can see the Complex of Huế Monuments in the central province of Huế, Hạ Long Bay in the northern province of Quảng Ninh, Mỹ Sơn Sanctuary in the central province of Quảng Nam and Phong Nha-Kẻ Bàng National Park in the central province of Quảng Bình, as well as nhã nhạc cung đình (royal court music) in Huế, xoan singing in the northern province of Phú Thọ, Hội An Ancient Town in Quảng Nam and Thăng Long Citadel in Hà Nôi Capital, along with the cultural space of the Central Highlands gongs and many others.
“This is the first time that the Korean Cultural Centre in Việt Nam has introduced pictures of Việt Nam to the Korean people,” the centre’s director, Park Nark-jong, said. “We hope to have more chances in the near future to boost cultural exchanges between the two countries to a desirable level.”
The 10-day exhibition was co-organised by Vietnamese Ambassador to Korea Phạm Hữu Trí, Kim Dae-hyun, director of the Heritage Promotion Bureau under the Korean Cultural Heritage Administration. – VNS
