Through a touching demonstration of cultural assimilation between Malaysia and Korea, a Malaysian girl @elsasurya and her friend can be seen having no trouble in mixing both Malaysia and Korea traditional culture together and it turns out to be phenomenal!
This extraordinary fusion of cultures not only showcased the beauty and grace of both nations but also left an unfading mark on the hearts of everyone who witnessed it.
Elsa shared a TikTok video that beautifully captured the enchanting scene. The TikTok video managed to gain 19.1K likes and 174.4K views at the time of writing!
At the start of the video, Elsa and her friend were dancing in Korean traditional attire, Hanbok, and the twist here is where they gracefully dance to the rhythms and melodies of Umpan Jinak Di Air Tenang, a song by our Malaysian local singer, Dayang Nurfaizah at Gyeongbokgung Palace in Korea.
Hanbok is the stunning traditional attire of Korea, showcasing a harmonious blend of vibrant colours, flowing lines, and intricate craftsmanship that embodies the rich culture of the Korean people.
The seamless blend of two cultures was nothing short of a visual feast for onlookers. With every twirl and sway, the girls effortlessly captured the essence of both Malay dance and Korean grace.
