World Folk Dance Festival in Seongdong

After a four-year hiatus, Seongdong-gu in eastern Seoul will host the World Folk Dance Festival on Oct. 4 at 7 p.m. in Wangsimni Square.

While this festival is a popular festival that has attracted approximately 2,000 visitors since it was first held in 2014, the event was put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Visitors to the festival will be able to see performances by folk dance groups from Malaysia, Slovakia, Costa Rica, Lithuania, Tahiti, Kosovo, Ecuador, Poland, Brazil and the Philippines. Three dance teams from South Korea -- students from Sunhwa Arts High School, Project Chang and Ryu Dance Company -- will also perform dances unique to Korean culture.

“We hope that this year’s World Folk Dance Festival will be a time to experience and understand each other’s cultures,” said the head of Seongdong-gu, Chong Won-oh.
