The national anthems of Brazil and Korea were played with dexterity by the Banda dos Bombeiros Militares do Distrito Federal (Military Firemen Band). Then, the Ambassador Chan-woo pronounced a speech highlighting Korea’s relations with Brazil and the strategic importance to both countries in bilateral relations.

The event also featured a presentation by the Busan Metropolitan Dance Company. The dancers wore Korean typical and colorful clothes, with elaborate make-up and hairstyles. The performance began with traditional dance movements and songs and then went through more dynamic rhythms to the point of involving the guests in the presentation, who were taken to dance on stage and dressed on typical clothes. The presentation was very beautiful and fun.
