The 23rd Filipino-Korean Cultural Festival Celebration [★]Sunday, November 09, 2014
It's a known fact today that the Korean culture has become more and more popular in the country, especially to the youth. This progress has brought forth more opportunities to have more cultural exchange between the two countries.
As part of the appreciation of this exchange of culture, the 23rd Filipino-Korean Cultural Festival was celebrated last Saturday at the Aliw Theater in Pasay City.
The event was hosted by Sam Oh and Jojo A.
It's been a long while since I last watched a cultural show, and it's nice to see our country's traditional dances being performed on stage.

There were also Korean traditional performances, just like this one by Molgae (몰개), a Korean traditional dance and percussion team.
Finalists of the talent contest also performed on stage.

There were also balladeers who performed Korean and Filipino songs.
One performance that I got really entertained was the one from the Manila Hankuk Academy. They were a group of students that did skits while dancing to iconic Pinoy dance tracks.
There were special performances also by Dexter Patente beatboxing (which was sooo amazing!) back-to-back with Jeong Min-ji playing the Gayageum.
It was the Dance Movers Crew who bagged the prize and was crowned winner with their powerful dance on the beat of kpop dance remixes.
It was nice to see how the culture of the Philippines and Korea were performed and appreciated throughout the show. As a Filipino, it makes me proud to see our traditional dances being performed on stage, Also as a KPOP fan, I got to relate and connect more with the culture of Korea.
It's nice to see that the bond between the two countries are getting stronger.
대박! Mabuhay tayong lahat! :D
