"The most famous samul nori ensemble is the internationally famous South Korean ensemble called SamulNori, which is credited for bringing the music from a rural folk genre to the contemporary stage. The group was established in February 1978 by janggu player and former Namsadang star performer Kim Duk Soo (김덕수), with the remaining original performers being Kim Young Bae (kkwaenggwari), Choi Tae Hyun (jing), and Lee Jong Dae (buk). Following Kim Young Bae's death in 1985, he was replaced by Choi Jong Sil, and Lee Kwang Soo replaced Lee Jong Dae on the buk.

"A South Korean Tenor Makes His Mark at the Met, With La Scala Next
By ANTHONY TOMMASINI
The South Korean tenor Yonghoon Lee won a lot of fans at the Metropolitan Opera for his recent performances in the touchstone title role of Verdi’s “Don Carlo” at the Metropolitan Opera, starting with his Met debut on Nov. 29. ...
Mr. Alagna sang four of the eight performances and Mr. Lee took the others, including the final one on Saturday afternoon, the first of the season’s Met radio broadcasts. This was my only chance to hear Mr. Lee, 37, and the buzz about him is justified. He is an outstanding tenor. Handsome and youthful, he is a natural onstage and a sensitive listener during duets and ensembles. He made a touchingly earnest Don Carlo, exuding what could be called charismatic modesty.
Mr. Lee’s career is moving in fast forward. Next month he makes his debut at La Scala as Turiddu in “Cavalleria Rusticana” and in February at the Cologne Opera he sings the daunting role of Manrico in “Il Trovatore” for the first time. His Vienna State Opera debut comes in April as Cavaradossi in “Tosca.” And next season he performs the original five-act French “Don Carlos” in Munich, Berlin and Vienna.... "

National photo exhibit celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Peace Corps and its 15 years of work in South Korea
“A Story of Volunteerism”,
chronicles the Peace Corps volunteer experience in the Republic of Korea from 1966 – 1981.
This exhibit also features Korea's volunteer agency, "World Friends Korea" organized by the Korea International Cooperation Agency, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.
Opening ceremony (5:30 PM October 7th) with remarks from dignitaries representing the Friends of Korea and the Consulate of the Republic of Korea in Chicago will be followed by a ribbon cutting and light food.
The Peace Corps came to South Korea in 1966 when the country was still in recovery from the Korean War but eager to develop and grow. During its fifteen years in Korea approximately 1800 Peace Corps Volunteers served as teachers in middle schools, high schools and universities and also worked in public health programs. They lived in villages, towns and cities dedicating two years of their lives to helping others.
In 1991 the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) was established by the Korean government to return to the world the help and assistance it had received as it matured economically and politically in the second half of the last century. This was an important step in moving from a receiver to a donor nation. Today, KOICA has 3000 volunteers serving in forty countries in Asia, Europe, Latin America, Africa and the Middle East.
