The new ambassador’s first outing

Peter Corbishley adds to the appreciation of the day, and Noridan gets another vote

Congratulations to Justina Jang on this year’s Dano festival, especially, especially the Noridan performance. The festival dropped a generation or two from last year. Tomi Kita was somewhat as his name suggests when pronounced – viz Tommy Guitar. Somewhat less of an imitation, but clearly ever so popular, was YB. The new Korean Ambassador, too, Chun Yung-Woo, only a week old – as he himself said – had his first London outing, and after the six-party talks perhaps one of the bigger audiences of his life. Speech done, jacket and tie off, he clearly soaked up the enthusiasm, as well as the beautiful weather, in Trafalgar Square. And the Noridan returned to remind us that not all music has to be recycled.
