A LARGE crowd gathered for the second day of the Korean Festival 2014 at Times Square Shopping Centre to witness Korea’s famous musical performance, ‘Bibap, the Most Delicious Musical in the World’.
The crowd were also treated to a cooking demonstration by Silla Restaurant and had the opportunity to take photos in the traditional Korean garb, the ‘Hanbok’.
Chul Ki Choi, the Director of Bibap and CEO of Persona Co Ltd in Korea, in an interview with the Sunday Bulletin, introduced Bibap – influenced by the Korean dish ‘Bibimbap’ – as a story about enthusiastic chefs and their passion for cooking in the ‘Bibap’ restaurant. The musical is a combination of b-boy break dancing, beat-box music and A-cappella.
He shared that there will be another musical based on circus and the Asian myth which tells the tale of a nine-tailed fox who falls in love with a human male.
“We have held performances in 25 countries and are happy with the reception we have received from the Bruneian crowd when it comes to Bibap and we are honoured to be able to perform here,” the director said.
The Bibap performance is the main attraction at the Korean Festival 2014 and today will be the last day of the performance at 5pm and 8pm.
Among the other attractions at the festival include the Taekwondo Martial Arts Show by Youth United, K-pop and dance performances by Brunei K-pop Lover Fans, the Korean Traditional Group Dance by UBD Korean Culture Club (KCC) and a lucky draw.
