Once again there’s a strong Korean showing at the Fringe this year. It’s particularly nice to see Modl Theatre in the UK again, this time with three productions. Two of them are geared towards families and children, but the third is a something darker: a new and topical production on the theme of the wartime […]

The Taekwondo demonstrations are always popular, plus this year there’s the Sookmyung Gayageum Orchestra.
