Performers wow audience at cultural show

A GROUP of Korean performers stole the show after they wowed the crowd with their cultural performance.

About 60 people turned up to watch Korea's well-known singer and guitarist Hyung-Ju Yoon with fellow Korean performers at the USP on Wednesday night.

Sponsored by the Korea Embassy, the concert was to showcase some of Korea's cultural and traditional values.

Hyung-Ju thrilled the crowd after he performed the song Isa Lei along with the Lagilagi choir.

He said the song was given to him 40 years ago by a missionary and later found out that it was a Fijian song.

"It's a privilege to come back into the country where the song Isa Lei originated from."

Korean ambassador Kim Seong-in said they hoped to bring other Korean performers and entertainers into the country.
