[Jeongdong Theater Traditional Culture Program_Janggu Class]
International K-pop Fans experienced the Janggu Class
in Jeongdong Theater!
Last October 23, the Sky was so high and the doldam-gil was so beautiful because of the autumn colors.
And Jeongdong Theater had special guests from all over the world!
They were 40 people of international K-pop fens from 12 countries.
They were selected by 32 branches of Korea Tourism Organisation(KRO)
because they all are contributors of social network or communities regarding K-pop.
They visited Jeongdong Theater to experience the traditional culture program.
After having seat in Jeongdong Maru, the venue of the Janggu Class,
they were so curious about the Korean traditional instrument so they took a pictures and touched Janggu.
First of all, they learned the basic information about the Janggu
such as how to call the part of the instrument and oral sound of the rhythm.
It was not familiar to them to pronounce but they were so excited to learn about the Korean traditional music.
When the participants became familiar with Janggu, they started to learn ‘Hwimori Jangdan(rhythm)’.
The instructor taught very smoothly for the K-pop fens who met Janggu for the first time.
It seemed like that all participants followed well the teacher.
After learning the ‘Hwimori Jangdan’, some participants demonstrated what they learned in front of others.
It was really surprising that they did very good job even it was the first time for them!!
Everybody gave them a big hand!
At the end, all participants and the instructor took a photo together!
They seemed like to feel the sorrow of parting but they leave photo and video as much as possible.
I guess that Korea they saw through the Janggu class is different with what they was through K-pop.
I hope they have this memory forever!
