Korea tango - historic and modern

Asia did participitate in the tango boom before the wwII. Here we have a Korean dancer singing a tango.  Seung-Hee Choi - A Garden in Italy 1936




Yuna Kim is not a dancer but a skater and she is sharing the underlying Korean musicality! You may watch the whole performance but if in a hurry check the link to the English speaking commentator who is extatic about her musicality! Starts at 3m10s

Here the whole performance - a tango hardly recognized as so . . .
