Jakarta welcomes Korean Festival

Thunderous applause rained down as four Koreans performed the traditional Pung-mul-no-ri dance and brought harmony to the stage.

Sin Myung, a folk percussion group from Korea, opened the Korean Festival with color, allowing people a glimpse of Korean culture in Artha Gading Mall, North Jakarta, on Saturday.

According to Daniel Sekeon from PT Kage Dwijaya, which organized the event, folk dance and music groups like Sin Myung can perform for days without getting tired.

On every weekend from Nov. 17 to Dec. 9, visitors will get the chance to taste Korean foods and learn how to cook Korean cuisine. Top Indonesian chief Rudi Choirudin will also share his expertise on Nov. 25.

One of the visitors, Nur from Bogor, said she was interested in buying Korean food products because she wanted to try cooking a Korean menu.
