And now we'd like to take you to Paris‚ where some of Korea's finest when it comes to b-boys captivated audiences in the European city.
What was special about this particular b-boy performance was the fusion of hip hop and traditional sounds.
Kim Jiyoung has this story.
The moment the B-boy crew hits the stage‚ the crowd begins to stir.
It doesn't take long for the crowd to feel the groove and become one with the performers.
They move their bodies to rhythms made not only by a deejay but also a Korean traditional string orchestra.
It's a classic merger of contemporary tunes with ancient musical traditions.
[INTERVIEW : Sylvia‚ Audience member] ''I think the performance was a fantastic harmony of tradition and dynamic beat.''
The audience rises to their feet clapping with gusto to which the b-boy performers respond generously with two encores.
[INTERVIEW : Cho Sungkuk‚ B-boy performer‚] ''I'm proud to be passing on the Korean vibe to a French audience. This is the charm of performing overseas.''
And audiences too‚ appear to be charmed by the blended beat from the other side of the world.
For the length of the performance's three-day run‚ this Parisian theater filled its 500 seats.
And with music as a universal language any thought of a language barrier quickly faded.
Following the shows‚ host Quai Branly Museum will offer classes of Korean percussion Samulnoli and Korean narrative song pansori through July.
