Imagery: World Cup 2010

Kwon Chil Seung, from Korean Culture Center, cheers as he plays kkwaenggwari, which is a small flat gong used primarily in folk music of Korea. Over one thousand Korean Soccer fans gathered at KTN Ballroom in Duluth to watch their first 2010 World Cup game versus Greece. Saturday, June 12, 2010.

This photo was taken by Hyosub Shin of The Atlanta Constitution-Journal in Duluth, Georgia, during the 2010 World Cup group match between South Korea and Greece. It shows an ecstatic kkwaenggwari player on a backdrop of cheering fans. Pungmul groups are usually present at large-scale celebrations and rallies held by Korean American communities.
