According to local tradition, the goddess Halmang, also known as Granny, is the creator of Jeju Island, its mountains, valleys, hills and rivers. The highest mountain on Jeju Island almost reaches the elbow of this good-humoured giantess, and the deepest river just laps her ankle.
Join in the fun with the performers from the Korean Children’s Culture and Arts Center. Become the mountain, the ocean and the wind as the rhythm and sounds of Jeju Island draw you into the mythology of a small Korean island. Sometimes the simplest creations can have wondrous results!
