The people gathered at the famous tourist site, in an attempt to escape from the exhausting heat of late summer, were attracted to the exotic sound. Starting from the Samulnori performance, í«the Night of Korean Festivalí» finally began. In a bus parked near the garden of Sidi Bou Said City Hall, World Friends Korea (WFK) volunteers bustled up changing costumes in the dark, to get ready for the next performance that they had prepared for the last two weeks.

Four WFK volunteers wearing identical WFK T-shirts sat on the stage. The one sitting on the very left side of the group initiated the performance by passionately beating Book, a Korean traditional base drum. Soon the other three instruments followed the heart beating sound of the Book. This Korean traditional quartet originally plays folk music wishing for good harvest, yet this time it wished for the stabilization of Tunisia after the disturbance of the Jasmine Revolution. The performance ended with women dancing and playing Sogo, a small Korean traditional drum. The thundering sound of the Samulnori was mixed with roaring cheer and applause from the audience.

The Samulnori performance was followed by a movie introducing various Korean traditional cuisines, including Bibimbab, which made most Korean immigrants and WFK volunteers feel their mouth water.

In the meantime, WFK volunteers taught the audience some greeting words in Korean, such as anyounghasaeyo (hello), gomapsempnida (thank you), bangapseumpnida (good to see you), and mianhapnida (Ií»m sorry). To their surprise, the audience were very good at Korean language thanks to the popularity of Korean drama in the region.

The highlight of the festival was the K-Pop Dance Competition. At the beginning it was just WFK volunteersí» demonstration of K-Pop music, but it soon became a competition between WFK team and Tunisian K-Pop dance team. It was indeed a verification of high public interest in K-Pop in Tunisia.
