A Pansori Night with Second Moon

Korean Cultural Center Los Angeles (Director Sangwon Jung) will host the "A Pansori Night with Second Moon" concert on April 15th at 7:00 PM on the Ari Hall to commemorate Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (AAPI) in May.

This event is part of the ongoing U.S. West Coast tour of the band "Second Moon," which has gained popularity for performing various Korean drama OST songs. Known for their experimentation with diverse musical genres, Second Moon seeks to showcase cultural diversity by visiting Los Angeles, a city representing various races and cultures.

Second Moon utilizes a variety of traditional folk instruments from around the world, including guitar, Irish whistle, mandolin, Uilleann pipes, melodeon, and accordion, to collaborate with various genres such as tango, waltz, Latin, pop, new age, jazz, and traditional Korean music. Currently, the band consists of members Hyunbo Kim (guitar, mandolin, bodhran, Irish whistle), Jinkyung Choi (keyboard, accordion), Yunjeong Jo (violin), Jongsun Park (drums), Younghoon Lee (guitar), and Jinwoo Park (bass).

In this performance, Second Moon will present popular drama OST songs they have participated in, including "Moonlight Drawn by Clouds" from the drama "Love in the Moonlight" and "Kwaejina chingching nane" performed at the closing ceremony of the PyeongChang Winter Olympics.

Especially noteworthy is the inclusion of Pansori singer Oh Dan-hae, recognized as a successor of the traditional Korean vocal art form. Oh Dan-hae will present various pansori from "Chunhyangga” with new interpretations, adding a unique highlight to the concert.

Additionally, the Cultural Center announced that the exhibition "The Beginning of the Democratic Republic" currently displayed on the second floor will be extended for viewing until the start of the concert.
