Tango in Korea

Tango in Korea started around 2000 and it has grown rapidly since then. In Seoul, the capital city, there are at least 6 venues fully-dedicated to Tango and they open most days in the week. There are also other weekly or semi-regular milongas and practicas, and an assortment of annual events and parties. On a good night of a popular milonga you can easily find between 50 to 80 dancers. Special events can draw up to a couple hundreds or more.

Outside of Seoul, there is also Tango in half a dozen other cities, including Busan, Daegu, and Daejeon. Tango in these places are not as big, but they are healthy growing communities with plenty of activities as well.
