This year’s National Day Reception of the Republic of Korea was special because it also marked the grand finale of Korean Culture Festival “2018 Days of Korean Culture”. The Embassy of the Republic of Korea invited a renowned Korean opera singer, baritone Tae-Joong Yang and organized an opera gala concert in collaboration with Orchestra and singers from the National Theater of Serbia. The concert was followed by receptions with Korean food. Including the Minister of Environmental Protection, more than 300 distinguished guests attended the event.
Under the main theme of “Come Closer”, the Embassy has presented more than 15 cultural events throughout October hoping that Serbian people can come one step closer to Korea in broader areas of its culture. Few highlights of the festival were Korean drum performance (TAGO), concert by Korean violinist at BEMUS, Korean designer’s fashion show at Belgrade Fashion week, Korean jazz singer Youn Sun Nah’s performance at Belgrade Jazz Festival.
