Their presence really spiced up the State-Level Kaamatan celebration at Penampang KDCA on May 30, even though it was just a short while. These are the Korean students from Yongho High School in Gunpo City of Korea. This was the 4th year they performed in KDCA. I didn’t know they were around until I heard the loud drum noise that attracted lot of crowd to the parking lot.
It was refreshing to see an “alien culture” joined our local cultural celebration. I grabbed my camera and tried to take more photos of them. They were wearing hat with a long white string attached. When they rotated their heads, dozen of strings spinned in the air, creating very cool effect. You can click the link below to watch the video.
We were lured to their fund-raising stall behind KDCA building. Then another group of young Korean girls performed a modern hot dance under the hot sun. I saw many big WOW expression in audience when these girls took off their jackets during the dance. After the dance, they sold some 2nd-hand stuffs to collect fund to donate to our local schools. Their kind heart and desperate presentation (and pretty faces) made me no excuse not to contribute a bit.
Below are more photos of their show:
