Filmmaker Kim Tae-yong to Tackle Traditional Music

2017/06/18 | 428 views |  | Permalink | Source

Film director Kim Tae-yong will take on a new challenge, directing a Korean traditional music performance.

Kim will direct a musical titled "Kkokdu", which is intended for foreign audiences, that will run at the National Gugak Center in Seoul from Oct. 4 to 22. It targets visitors ahead of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.

Kkokdu means a wooden marionette used for decorating a bier.

"It will be a musical that combines dance, singing, and Korean traditional music", said a staffer at the center.

Kim, who is married to Chinese actress Tang Wei, has long shown his affection for Korean traditional music, including pansori or one-person narrative song.
