The collaborative event, organised by Da Nang’s People’s Committee and the RoK Embassy in Viet Nam, features traditional dance, drum performances and folk songs from the Traditional Arts Inheritance Association of Korea, as well as romantic Vietnamese songs.

The culture exchange, which aims to promote culture and tourism between Viet Nam and RoK, starts at 7pm. Tickets are free.

Korean artists will also give scholarships and school facilities to poor students at Hoa Son Primary School in Hoa Vang District on March 31.

Last year, the city hosted a RoK-Vietnamese cultural exchange including hanbok-wearing, folk games, a photo exhibition, art performances and film screenings.

RoK tourists are the second largest demographic of foreign tourists in the city.

Budget airline carrier Jeju Air launched its new air route connecting Da Nang with Incheon, while Korean Air Busan introduced a chartered flight between the city and Busan in 2014.
