The occasion marks the first time ever that the event has taken place in Quang Ninh province.

The function is being jointly held by Ha Long University and the Korean Cultural Centre in Vietnam and features a wide range of activities for guests to enjoy, including a food festival, a fashion show on traditional Korean costumes, and a taekwondo performance.

The highlight of this year’s event is a variety of Kpop dances and performances of Korean songs, as well as a showcase of Vietnamese musical instruments by artists of both countries.

A music gala is scheduled to close the event on August 30.
