Leonel & Florencia

El Bulín is founded by Leonel (Hung-Yut) & Florencia (Hwayi) in October 2009. They are a professional Argentine Tango couple who have been teaching and promoting Tango in Korea since 2005.

*** Our name, El Bulín, came from the lunfardo word "bulín", which means "a room", "a room for love affairs", or "a place for dreaming and living". Lunfardo is a slang developed among the lower-class in Buenos Aires at the turn of the 20th century. Lunfardo words appear often in Tango lyrics, including "El Bulín de Calle Ayacucho" (listen).
