In the initial implementation of the agreement, HMCC and the National Gugak Center of South Korea discussed and agreed on cooperative exchange content, sharing experiences, exchanging research materials and musical instruments, training in enhancing capabilities, and promoting joint activities related to in-depth research and performing arts. Specifically, a collaborative program titled “Asian Court Arts Festival” is scheduled to take place in South Korea in 2026.
At the program, HMCC and the National Gugak Center of South Korea engage in a cultural exchange performance featuring court music from both countries, introducing to the public the traditional and distinctive court art forms of the two nations.
These activities are part of the highlighted events of the Winter Festival and to celebrate Vietnam's Cultural Heritage Day (November 23), aiming to promote the cultural heritage of Hue with the goal to develop Hue into a centrally-governed municipality.
