"Wonderful emotions! Unique mood! A magical walk through ancient Korea!" - this is how one spectator described the experience during the "Beauty of Korea" Friendship Concert.

This year it was held on the 25th of October, in Hall 2 of the National Palace of Culture. On the eve of the 30th anniversary of the establishment of the diplomatic relations between the Republic of Korea and the Republic of Bulgaria, the Korean Embassy in Sofia presented us with a memorable feast of the Bulgarian-Korean friendship.

The artists of the "Art Group AN", with their colorful costumes, wonderful musical instruments and fascinating dance performances, captivated the audience of the crowded hall. Their challenging improvisations of traditional rhythms and melodies were greeted with a standing ovation. The exclusive formation consists of Korean artists who work mainly in Europe. But they look back to the folklore and fine traditions of Korea's past, to share them to the world, in all their beauty!
