prince hodong introduces korean tradition to the worldwide stage:

the ballet <prince hodong>, sponsored by the ministry of culture, sports, and tourism as a part of the nation branding project, is an original work based on a traditional tale, the princess nakrang and the prince hodong’. sung-nam lim, the 1st artistic director of the korea national ballet, choreographed <prince hodong> in 1988 and byung-nam moon, the deputy artistic director, newly interpreted it as a 21st century ballet. although there have been many dances created based on korean literature over the last 50 years of the korea national ballet, the ballet <prince hodong> is itself a great piece of art because the tale <prince hodong> consists of a dramatic plot. <prince hodong> is based on our cultural text and with the themes - the nations, war, love, betrayal, and death - this magnificent and splendid work is composed of 2 acts and 12 scenes which represents a combination of delicate modern techniques and classical sentiment. <prince hodong> is a ballet which presents a good example of the globalization of korean culture in the 21st century by combining western artistic culture with korean traditional culture.
