Asian Creative Musical Series

Social enterprise salad (Founder & CEO: Park Kyong Ju) has produced one multicultural creative musical series (Concept: Park Kyong Ju) every year that introduces asian culture since 2011 with production support from the Shinhan bank social contribution fund.

The asian cultures introduced through the asian musical series so far are Nepal, China, the Philippines, Mongolia, Vietnam, and Indonesia, India, and Myanmar. Over the past seven years, these works have visited national and public institutions across the country, met more than 100,000 audiences, and communicated with Korean society to respect each other’s culture and understand differences in a multicultural society in an era of 2 million immigrants.

Salad is made up of various ethnicities and nationalities. For eight years, the playwright Park Kyong Ju and music composer Gil Hizon accepted each other’s roles and personal backgrounds while negotiating and collaborating to perfect salad’s own way of expressing multiculturalism.
