Life in the ROK

West goes East: The lives and adventures of a Californian couple living in Seoul

Monday, April 16, 2007

Today Jay and I saw a performance called B-Boy Korea. It was the story of a rivalry between two B-Boy groups. (For those of you who don't know B-Boys are breakdancers and Korea won the B-Boy Championship this year, and they are very proud of it.) The performance was quite impressive, not only because there were guys spinning on theirs heads and jumping around like their joints are made of rubber, but they were doing some of it to traditional Korean drumming, flute, and string instruments. And of course there was a love story, a b-boy with oddly dyed hair falls for the beautiful country street performer who plays a gayakeum (a 12 stringed long hand held wooden instrument.) It was awesome.
