It was another nice weekend in the city! Enjoying The Korean Sparkling Festival at Palm Grove, Darling Harbour. The audiences were entertained by a list of performances including Korean musical, Taekwondo demonstrations, hip-hop dances, Korean traditional fashion show and try on traditional Korean costumes (Hanbok) for free. There was also a quite interesting 2.5metre high ‘Korea Sparkling’ robot with video screen on his tummy surrounded by few stunned children. The food stalls selling some yummy Korean traditional foods like Kimchi (fermented pickled cabbage), Bulgogi, rice sticks in a hot spicy sauce, and Gimbap (seaweed rice roll).
My favorite show was NANTA, a non verbal performance playing traditional drumming beats with kitchen background and using kitchen appliances such knifes and chopping blocks, portraying kitchen staffs and their manager cooking for a banquet in a funny comedy routines. It was an awesome performance! I was very happy when got a chance to take picture with all of the performers who have had a successful performance in Broadway, New York.
