More than 30 South Korean artists and 40 Vietnamese performers will take the stage today for a cultural exchange at Đà Nẵng’s Hàn River Port on Bạch Đằng Street.
The collaborative event, organised by Đà Nẵng’s People’s Committee and the South Korean Embassy in Việt Nam, will feature traditional dance, drum performances and folk songs from the Traditional Arts Inheritance Association of Korea, as well as romantic Vietnamese songs.
The culture exchange, which aims to promote culture and tourism between Việt Nam and South Korea, starts at 7pm. Tickets are free.
Korean artists will also give scholarships and school facilities to poor students at Hòa Sơn Primary School in Hòa Vang District on Thursday.
Last year, the city hosted a South Korean-Vietnamese cultural exchange including hanbok-wearing, folk games, a photo exhibition, art performances and film screenings.
South Korean tourists are the second largest demographic of foreign tourists in the city.
Budget airline carrier Jeju Air launched its new air route connecting Đà Nẵng with Incheon, while Korean Air Busan introduced a chartered flight between the city and Busan in 2014./.
