HÀ NỘI – The South Korean Cultural Centre and the Lào Cai Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism will hold Korean Culture Day in Sa Pa Town on Saturday.
The event will take place in the centre of Sa Pa with a range of activities to introduce and popularise the culture and tourism of South Korea and Việt Nam.
Vietnamese and Korean expat artists including Hansara, K-pop dance troupe The Acode, đàn bầu (monochord) artist Lê Hoài Phương and Cỏ Lạ girl band will perform in a show starting at 8pm.
The show will also feature local artists performing songs and dances featuring northwestern culture.
“I hope the event will be meaningful amid the COVID-19 pandemic which makes negative impacts on people all over the world,” said Suk Jin-young, the centre's director.
“I believe that this event will strengthen the relationship between the two countries and between Korea and Lào Cai Province as well.”
Sa Pa is a small town in the northern mountain province of Lào Cai, located about 350km from Hà Nội.
In recent years, the centre has held Korean Cultural Days in the central city of Đà Nẵng, Hội An Town in the central province of Quảng Nam, coastal Nha Trang City in Khánh Hòa Province, and Đà Lạt City in the Central Highlands province of Lâm Đồng.
The event in Sa Pa will also celebrate the relations of the two countries in fighting against the pandemic and boost the closely knit relationship between the two countries. – VNS
