– Jeju Tourism’s resident Korean travel diarist was out on his island travels again and sent this story –
The Jeju International Experimental Arts Festival was held in Seogwipo this past October under the theme ‘Life is Art’ with many performances and exhibitions.
I dropped by on October 26. At that time there was a lot going on at the Seogwipo Everyday Olle Market.
The market has about 500 stores in total with a 60 year history. It is the market to visit in the Seogwipo area.
I was excited to see what kind of performances would be held. Many others dropped on in including residents and tourists.
The place was active.
As soon as I entered I met this woman who looks unique and is not normal. She walked with bare-feet in a funny performance.
This person was in yellow performing while filming himself with a smart phone.
It was good to see the merchants joining in, so I got stuck in too.
Here another group caught attention with beautiful movement and music. Everyone glanced their way.
Art soaked into life.
Now there was a picture drawing experience.
As you can see there were a variety of performances with the theme ‘Life is Art’.
Maybe some were difficult for us to understand, but after taking a while to look you could get the gist.
Good performances made the traditional market more active.
All had a good time and I’m hoping the festival can go ahead next year.
