Sun.Star Cebu - - FRONT PAGE -

For the first time, an in­ter­na­tional con­tin­gent will join the Sin­u­log 2019 grand pa­rade as guest per­former.

Cebu City Coun­cilor Dave Tu­mu­lak says a con­tin­gent from Wonju, South Korea com­mit­ted that they will be join­ing the Sin­u­log 2019 grand pa­rade as guest per­former.

“This is the first time that a for­eign del­e­gate will join Sin­u­log for the pur­pose of show­ing the Korean cul­ture dur­ing the Sin­u­log,” he said.

In a let­ter to Tu­mu­lak, Jun­hyung Ha, di­rec­tor of Wonju Dy­namic Danc­ing Car­ni­val, said the group wants to per­form dur­ing the Sin­u­log 2019 grand pa­rade.

“Wonju Dy­namic Danc­ing Car­ni­val would like to bring high-level Korean tra­di­tional per­for­mance group to Sin­u­log 2019. We want to show good Korean tra­di­tional per­for­mance to au­di­ences of Sin­u­log and con­trib­ute to the suc­cess of Sin­u­log 2019,” he said.

Ha said that their group and the City had been part­ners be­fore, bring­ing some Ce­buano groups like the Lu­mad Basakanon to Korea.

Tu­mu­lak, who is the chair­man of the ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee of the Sin­u­log Foun­da­tion Inc. (SFI), said Wonju’s per­for­mance is a way of show­ing their cul­ture to Cebu.

It also co­in­cides with next year’s Sin­u­log theme, which is “one beat, one dance for the world.”

Tu­mu­lak said Wonju will shoul­der the plane tick­ets of their per­form­ers, but they re­quested the City to pro­vide ac­com­mo­da­tion, meals and trans­porta­tion.

At the mo­ment, Tu­mu­lak said he is just wait­ing for the board of trustees of SFI to ap­prove the re­quest of Wonju for their ac­com­mo­da­tion, meals and trans­porta­tion.
