THE Korean Embassy in Fiji is bringing the popular KTigers, a group made up to tae kwon do artists from Korea, to perform in Fiji for a one-off show.
KTigers, enroute to Papua New Guinea after their Fiji show at the University of the South Pacific ICT Centre on May 27, will showcase a new form of tae kwon do.
“They will perform in Fiji to commemorate the 60th anniversary of Fiji’s relationship with Fiji,” Jeong-yeol Kwak, the Embassy of Korea’s deputy chief of mission said.
KTigers promote tae kwond o by developing elements of entertainment and fun through the introduction of dance and music into moves for the art.
“It aims to achieve harmony with performances like acrobatics, dance and K-pop which has drawn the attention of the world.
“Ktigers offers a fusion, non-verbal performance where Korea’s traditional martial art is combined with artistic perfomances to be enjoyed by people of all ages.”
Tae kwon do, Korea’s martial art, was developed during the 1940s and 1950s by various Korean martial artists combining and incorporating the elements of karate and Chinese martial arts.
Tickets to the show is distributed freely by the embassy in Suva.
