Korean dancers

A Korean group from Epsom Girls Grammar School is shown performing Buchaechum, a traditional Korean fan dance, at Polyfest in Auckland in 2013. The bright gowns (which cover the dancers’ legs and feet) and colourful fans are important elements of the dance, which is one of the more formal of Korea’s many dance forms.
